Every year, we spend $4.5 billion dollars controlling and repairing damage left by subterranean termites. We’ll help you protect your home before termites can damage it. Subterranean termites require special types of treatments because they nest in the ground, in crown colonies. These crown colonies infest structures from a distance, setting up satellite termite colonies around your home. Subterranean termites will also enter the home through expansion joints or cracks in the cement slab. Mud tubes are used as subterranean termite highways, and can be found in all locations of the home or building. Subterranean termites use these shelters for climate control and protection from the environment and predators. The majority of the time, the subterranean termites will be found in the bathroom and shower areas where high moisture content is readily available.
How Do I Know I Have Termites?
- Mud Tubes – Subterranean termites require high levels of moisture to survive. To move from place to place, subterranean termites create mud tubes the thickness of a pencil as sheltered termite highways.
- Swarming Termites – Winged termites are usually the first sign of a subterranean termite infestation. Swarming termites are attracted to light and are often found in or near lighting fixtures, windows, doors and vents.
- Wood Damage – Subterranean termites require moisture, so they tend to go unnoticed because the termites only eat the insides of the wood leaving the grain and exterior surface intact. Dark areas or blisters in hardwood flooring are a sure sign that you have subterranean termites.
