Signs of Termites in Cabinets in Pinellas, Hillsborough and Pasco Counties | Florida
Have you recently purchased a new home with a beautiful kitchen, or remodeled your outdated kitchen or office to include new cabinets? If so, there is something Coby McConnell, owner and president of Coby’s Tentless Termite and Pest Control, thinks you should know.
In this day and age, many cabinets purchased in the United States are actually manufactured overseas and are shipped to America for use in new residential and commercial construction, as well as in remodeling projects. With all of the new homes and offices being built in Pinellas and Pasco counties, it is highly-likely there may be a hidden problem of which you should be aware.
Many new cabinets being built overseas and are constructed using 9-ply wood that is often infested with termites. These termites can lay dormant within the wood of these cabinets for a number of years before emerging to devour their surroundings… your once “perfect” cabinetry.
One sign there may be termites in cabinets in Pinellas, Hillsborough and Pasco Counties in Florida includes the visible appearance of termite “frass”, or excrement, that looks like dirt or sawdust. If there is no reason for there to be dirt or sawdust in or around your cabinets, this should immediately throw-up a red flag. It is probably termite poop.
Another sign: Termites look a lot like ants, but you can distinguish between the two based on their physical appearance. Ants have three sections to their bodies and termites only have two.
Now that you know what to look for, don’t let these destructive pests be the end of your beautiful cabinets! Coby has the remedies to rid and protect your home, office and cabinets from the dangers of termites.
