Termites Act Quickly

termite-serviceThe impact of termites on the average home is swift, particularly if there is moisture within the wood in the home. A normal colony eats a pound of wood per year, and includes over 1 million termites. And so they can make short work of wood furniture. Without a professional response, homeowners may kill some termite workers but not kill the colony’s Queen, allowing them to grow in number while the problem is thought to have been resolved.

The longer you wait after discovering a termite problem, the more extensive your termite damage is likely to be. There’s no need to hesitate when Family Pest Control can offer prompt, thorough, effective termite extermination services. Our dedicated team will arrive on the scene and do a comprehensive evaluation of your property. We’ll tell you about the plan of attack, then utilize state-of-the-art methods to get rid of your termites and prevent them from coming back.

How Can You Identify Termites?

Leftover Wings – When you have a termite colony in your home, you’ll likely to begin to notice discarded insect wings. Termites swarm out of their nest and then land on the ground. At this time, they no longer need their wings, and their wings are usually discarded in an area with significant existing termite activity. Look for small discarded insect wings in and around wood structures in the property.

Mud covered areas on wood  When a termite damages wood within the home, they usually cover the damage with dirt and mud-like material. You may notice that wood shelving in the home has additional pieces of muddy material at its edges. This is a clear sign that termites are in the area.

Hollow wood structures If you believe you have a termite presence in the home, you can test your wood structures to determine the impact of the insect. Knocking on the side of wood structures will elicit a thud or hollow sound if there is a termite colony in the area.

Our professional termite removal experts are trained to identify termites with precision. They know the differences between termites and ants, and can identify the various species, each of which have to be treated differently. This means they can help prevent homeowners from wasting their time when they don’t have a termite issue, while ensuring that any termite presence is dealt with expertly.
