What Do Termites Eat?

Termites eat wood. More to the point, termites eat the cellulose that makes up wood. Cellulose is the most plentiful organic compound found in nature and termites can get all their nutrients from this material. They get more than that as many termite species live in wood as well. 

Do Termites Eat Things Other Than Wood?

Termites cannot actually eat brick or concrete, but that doesn’t mean that they can’t do damage to your brick home. Most brick homes are still made using wood framing, the meal of choice for termites. The brick veneer of your home can act as the perfect thing to hiding place, and you may have a lot of termite damage that can go unnoticed until major problems arise. 

Homes constructed on concrete slabs are also at risk for termite damage. While termites can’t penetrate the concrete, concrete does hold moisture, which is the perfect place for termites to thrive and breed. Additionally, concrete often develops tiny cracks that termites can easily move through and find their way into the rest of your home. 

What To Do If You Have Termites In Your Brick Home

If you have found termite damage in your brick home, the first thing to do is to determine how new the damage is. If the damage is old, you may only need to call in a contractor to assess the damage and to see what needs to be fixed. If you do happen to come across an active termite population, you should call a pest care professional to eliminate the termite infestation before you can even begin to address the structural damage. 

If you are feeling lost about where to look for a pest care specialist in your area, call Pest Control Experts. We can help you compare services in your area to find the one that suits your home’s termite needs. Call Pest Control Experts today.
