Home Maintenance Budgets: Include Pest Control & Termite Treatment
Money is something a lot of people don’t like to talk about, and budgets aren’t far behind. It’s never fun to open your wallet for a project that you really don’t want to work on, regardless of how important (and there’s a direct correlation between importance and expense) it is. Because of the potential expense, however, it’s better to plan ahead than to be hit with a big problem that needs to be immediately addressed. After all, preventative little projects can thwart the potential for larger, more costly ones, just as smaller savings can accumulate into a big fund later on.
One of those budgets you may want to consider adding to is a home maintenance fund –– and more specifically, for termite control and extermination. Many people associate big price tags with ridding your home of the invasive pests, but there are signs of termites that you can look for to stay vigilant, while contributing a little bit of your monthly budget to an extermination fund.
Signs of a termite infestation include fine streaks of a substance that looks like mud (but is really termite saliva, soil and feces) on your walls or near the base of your home, termite swarms, or small tunnels on the outside of your home near the base. Those who have termite infestations don’t always see the bugs themselves, so it’s important to know the characteristics of a termite control problem before it escalates into a larger issue –– structural damage to your home that is much more costly than affordable termite treatments.
