  1. Thanks for pointing out how termite infestations can cause extreme damages to wooden structures over time. My parents live in a traditional home in our old farm. Some of their foundations are made out of wood, and a termite attack on one of those will surely cause a lot of headaches. I will be sure to advise them to get in touch with a reputable termite control service should they find any sign of an infestation.

  2. I never knew that termites actually like to live in areas of the house that are filled with mold, and this fact could probably make my house unhealthy for me to live in. Maybe I should hire someone to control their population so I won’t fear to have to inhale moldy air. My friend was the one who pointed out to me that I might have some termites in my home since he’s familiar with how frass looks like, and he said to me that he saw some in my kitchen.
