We may not realize it, but our homes are a welcome mat and dinner plate for a variety of critters, rodents and pests. This has been a fairly common occurrence throughout history – any structure that is made of wood is ultimately subject to ageing, wear and tear and the inevitable invasion of pests like termites that can threaten the structural integrity of your home. In the past, this was hard to prevent and required costly treatments that did not do the trick. These days, however, a variety of new techniques exist and home owners are using their smartphones to find out more on how they can protect their homes for years and decades to come. Below, we will outline three mobile applications for Android devices that are designed to help users find information, assistance and treatment tips for handling a potential termite infestation.
