Between prevention and damage, Americans spend more money battling termites than any other wood-destroying organism. Given the economic impact of the species, it is important to know what you are controlling and why termites can be good for the ecosystem.
Though termites can be detrimental to your home or business, in nature, termites provide several beneficial balances. Termites break down cellulose in dead tree stumps and limbs found underground, which creates nutrient-rich soil and aerates the ground for future plants and trees to grow.
Since termites consume cellulose, a resource found in wood, it is vital to keep termites away from expensive investments, whether it’s your home or your business. Palmetto Exterminators offers several termite protection services and treatments for effective termite control.
