“An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.”
Benjamin Franklin wasn’t talking about termite prevention when he used this phrase in 1736 — he was talking about preventing fires. However, they are still powerful words that definitely apply to many different situations, including pest control. Termites may not wipe out a city block or even an entire city like fire was known to do before modern firefighting equipment and expertise, but they can definitely cause irreparable damage to a dwelling if left untreated.
If a termite colony becomes large enough and targets a structural component such as a load-bearing support beam, the result could be disastrous. Since the price of a house or even major repairs would be substantially more than that of a termite prevention system, it is critical to consider preventing termites rather than deal with the aftermath.
There are three things involved with an effective termite prevention plan. The first is to stay vigilant during termite swarm season. The second is to have a home termite inspection done regularly to ensure you do not have a termite problem. The third is to employ termite control services to lure subterranean termites away from your home and entice them to take poisoned bait back to the colony so it can be eliminated.
