Expert Solutions in Termite Prevention and Protection for Your Home or Business

“These termites are eating us out of house and home!”

If you’ve said that, you might be right.

Termites can do so much damage to your home, which insurance companies do not cover, that you may wonder what your home looked like before they took over. Subterranean Termites damage more US homes than fires, hurricanes, tornadoes, and earthquakes combined. Termites cause over 5 billion dollars damage in the US each year.

These pests live underground and feed on anything made of cellulose such as wood, paper, flooring, even fibers in the carpet. They never stop eating-24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year!

As springtime begins, the Termite Queen sends out millions of “swarmers” to reproduce, which accounts for only five percent (5%) of the actual colonies. When these “swarmers” are seen, homeowners can be assured that an infestation is nearby.

How can you know if there are termites in your home? Here is what you can look for:

  • Swarms of termites: Termites come out in mass and will release their wings in order to find a mate.
  • Creation of “Termite Mud Shelter Tubes”: Worker termites, the wood and cellulose consumers, build mud shelter tubes, which look like a pencil, from the ground onto homes. From there, they move back and forth to the colonies in the ground to feed by mouth (known as “trophallaxis”).
  • Bubbled paint or drywall: If these are present, look for leaks and also the wood may be soft.
