The damage done by termites and other wood-destroying insects can be a serious threat to your home if left unchecked. Genie Pest Control is able to help with both prevention and treatment of these invasive insects and has 30 years of experience in mitigating and preventing damage to homes and businesses.

TERMITES THAT IMPACT OMAHA AND COUNCIL BLUFFS HOMES

Every city in the nation is host to at least one type of termite colony and in our area, we have the most common of varieties, the subterranean termite to contend with here in the Omaha and Council Bluffs area.

These insects nest in the soil below the home and make the trek up from the ground to feast on wood in and around the home. Wood piles, siding, internal wood framing – nothing is safe once these wood-destroying insects begin their destructive work.

TERMITE FACTS AND FIGURES
  • Every year, $5 billion dollars in damage to homes is reported because of these invasive insects.
  • Termite colonies like those found in the Omaha and Council Bluffs areas start underground and can grow to more than a million insects able to consume than 100 pounds of wood a year.
  • It only takes a crack as thin as 1/32nd of an inch (about as thick as your Visa card) for a termite to find the way into your home.
HOW DO I KNOW IF MY OMAHA OR COUNCIL BLUFFS HOME HAS TERMITES?

Once evidence of a termite infestation is able to be observed by the untrained eye, so much damage can be done that it is oftentimes too late. The visible signs of termite damage only become glaringly clear once extensive damage and full-blown infestation have already taken place.

Some tell-tale signs that you may have termites in eating away at the wood in and around your home include:

  • Damage that looks a bit like water damage – buckling wood, swollen floors or bubbled surfaces such as on stairways
  • Walls or furniture with apparent mazes or trails visible in the exposed woodwork
  • Mud tunnels created by termites’ saliva and feces in or around your home’s foundation
WHAT CAN I DO TO AVOID TERMITE DAMAGE?

If you already have termites, chances are there is some damage that has already taken place. Catching it early is important in minimizing that damage and in halting the growth of the colony.

Whether you have an active infestation, or if you just want peace of mind that your home is protected, Genie Pest Control has fully trained and licensed professionals ready to handle all of your wood destroying insect problems, from termites and wood-boring beetles to wood-decaying fungi.
