When a person hears, “termite damaged structure,” various images will pop into their mind. However, the most common thought is that of a worn out, wooden building that is sitting on blocks.

Humid and wet locations provide them with a suitable environment to reproduce, while animals and humans alike serve as delicious meals to keep their community flourishing.

Roaches and other insects travel through the sewer pipes. P-traps under fixtures are designed to keep these critters from finding their way inside, but when they have free-range abilities under the house, alternative routes through cracks in floorboards and other areas are quickly exposed. Meanwhile, a hot water leak can create the perfect habitat that mosquito populations need to thrive. Continue reading
