放っておくと大変

一般的にシロアリなどの害虫は、風呂場や台所などの水回りに発生することが多く、またジメジメとした梅雨の時期にも多くなるといわれています。シロアリの被害は食害といい、シロアリが木の柱や畳などを食い、ある日突然床が抜けてしまうや、シロアリの食害のせいで家を支えている柱が食いつぶされ、のちに補強工事やひどいときには家を取り壊さなくてはならないという事態も被害も発生しています。ずっとこの家で生活していかなくてはならない状況で家がそんなことになってしまうと私はホームレスになってしまう。早急に対策を立てねば。

木だけではない

シロアリの好みはせっかく新居を建てたにもかかわらず、数年でシロアリの被害に遭う家も少なくないです。シロアリは森の益虫で枯れ木を分解して土に還元する重要な役割をもっています。しかし住宅に侵入すれば家の土台をも揺るがす害虫となります。時期になると羽を持ったアリを見かける事があります。シロアリではなく普通のアリである可能性もあるのでよく観察してみる事が大切です。シロアリは放置したままにしておくと材木だけでなく、金属やケーブル配線、発砲スチロールまでかじり出します。

構造で被害の大きさは違います
鉄骨造工法の家は侵食を受ける可能性が低いですが、一軒家の多くは在来工法なのでシロアリの被害を受けやすいです。雨漏り等で水分の補給があれば更にシ

業者への見積もりは慎重に

害虫駆除を専門とするシロアリ駆除業者は数多く存在します。多くは薬剤を散布する方法ですが、ベイト工法による方法もあります。毒餌を設置して持ち帰らせてコロニーごとダメージを与える方法です。他の方法より費用が多少高くなりますが、健康の事が心配な方は利用する事をおすすめします。様々なケースを入れて平均的な相場は坪当たり10000円前後です。3ヶ月や6ヶ月ごとの点検費用も考慮に入れます。多数の害虫駆除業者に見積もりを依頼して慎重に契約する事が肝心です。優良な害虫駆除業者探しはネットの口コミで判断するのも有効な手段です。

シロアリ予防の方法

シロアリを放っておくと家の木材を徐々に食べていき、家の作りが脆くなってしまい大変危険です。そのようなシロアリ予防対策としては、家の周りに餌となる木材を放置しないようにしたり、結露などの湿気になりやすい場所はきちんと修復しておくことが大切です。また、換気をしっかりとして家の風通しを良くすることも大切です。
しかし、シロアリは一度巣を作られてしまうとその巣をきちんと処理しなければそこからどんどん被害は続いてしまいます。このような場合は業者にきちんと駆除をしてもらわなければなりません。

業者に頼んできちんと駆除
シロアリを見付けたり被害箇所を見付けたら、シロアリ駆除業者や害虫駆除業者に連絡をしましょう。
