TERMITES

There are four main ways to determine if your home may have termites.

TERMITE DAMAGE

The appearance of termite damaged wood is hollow along the grain of the wood with signs of dried mud or soil along the wood galleries. Moisture damaged wood does not have this. The wood will also have a blistered or bubbled appearance and in some severe cases, can be tore out or crumbled with your bare hands.

MUD SHELTER TUBES

These tubes are usually found along foundation walls, footers, inside concrete blocks, or they can also be between the brick and block, especially if the brick goes below the soil. They may also be visible anywhere where there is a concrete slab. Termites use these mud tubes to travel from their colonies to the structure.
 

SWARMERS

These winged termites will swarm out of a structure in the early spring and summer. They do this in order to try to start a new colony. It normally takes a colony 5-8 years to reach winged reproducer size. Warm and moist climate and temperature and humidity usually determines when, and how long termites will swarm. These termites will swarm out of the structure, into the air, dropping their wings to mate in attempt to begin a new colony in the soil. The good news is almost no swarmers inside a structure will survive. But this is also the best indication that the structure has a termite infestation. Most customers will notice swarmers around window, light fixtures, doors, or even on the floor. This is due to their attraction to light. Another indication that theses winged creatures are termites is that they will always swarm out by the hundreds, maybe even thousands at a time. Their bodies, although having 3 body sections, appear to have a head and one complete body section. They have 2 pair of wings, all being of equal length and double the length of their body. Their antennae are straight, not elbowed like ants.

LIVE WORKERS

These are often seen in the mud shelter tubings or in the damaged infected wood. They are small white fleshy looking insects. Some people mistake their appearance for maggots or ants. If you notice any or all of these indications, it is always best to call and make an appointment so we can schedule an experienced technician to do a thorough inspection and assess the situation.
