Termites   Photo


Termites are a type of social insect that live together in large colonies. Subterranean termites are the most widespread species living across the country. These termites prefer to nest under the ground in damp soil. Subterranean termites are well-known for using trees and wooden structures as a food source, preferring wet or decaying wood. Out in nature, they are helpful recyclers; in our homes, they are destructive pests. 

Each year across the country, termites are responsible for causing more than five billion dollars in damage. While subterranean termites nest outside, they frequently find their way inside our homes through tiny cracks they come across or pieces of wood making contact with the ground. Once inside, they will move to high-humidity areas and infest water-damaged pieces of structural timber. Leaky pipes, roof damage, and poor ventilation can result in a termite infestation. 

Keep destructive termites away from your home with the help of these tips.

  • Eliminate as much soil-to-wood contact on your property and home as possible.

  • Repair damaged trim and cracks in the foundation.

  • Remove and replace any water-damaged wood in or on your home.

One of the best termite prevention tips is to schedule regular termite inspections for your property.
