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.
Although termites are a detriment 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 aerate 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 your most expensive investment – your home or business. Palmetto Exterminators offers several termite protection services and treatments.
