Let’s say your house is made of cinderblock, so why should you worry about termites? It’s not that simple, unfortunately. If termites just fed on wood or wood products then termites would not be as big of an issue as they are. All one would have to do is build a building out of materials that termites wouldn’t want to eat. Termites don’t confine their diet to just wood however; they also can eat plastics, paint, and fabric. Sometimes, termites might not eat non-wood products like these, but they will also sometimes use them to build nests. The result of termite infestation is ultimately damage to wooden structures. Because of their diet, namely wood and wood products like cellulose, many termite species damage buildings that are unprotected, as well damage or even destroy other wooden structures. In addition, as they can also often remain concealed and eat wood from the inside, their presence is often not detected until its too late. It is a far better idea to get on the phone to a termite exterminator in Scottsdale and have a termite inspection done to stop the problem before it gets worse.
