Commercial Termite Control

1-800-PEST-CONTROL – The Termite Treatment Specialists!

There are more than 1,800 different species of termites or “white ants” that belong to the insect family, “Isoptera.” Thought to have evolved from the common cockroach, termites are one of the oldest living insects still in existence today.

Termites live in colonies, where they work and operate in a well-defined system of order. The reproductive termites (known as the “king” and “queen”) maintain the termite population, the workers are those termites which eat wood, and the soldiers keep the colony in order and protect each nest. Both soldiers and workers are blind and sterile and live 2-5 years. The reproductive termites, can survive for as long as 70-years.

Termite Baiting Program

Baiting stations are strategically installed around your property to eliminate termites in the ground before they reach your home. The termites feed on the bait and take it back to the nest where they distribute it throughout the colony causing elimination. However, a new colony may invade and show up long after the initial colony has been eliminated.

That’s why it’s important to have the baiting systems electronically monitored on a regular basis to detect termite activity.

Many homeowners with no known termite problems have our Termite Baiting System installed solely to make sure it stays that way. Your home may have a
security system to alert you to a human break-in. Why not one to alert you to a termite break-in?

Termite Barrier

To help protect businesses from termites, a treatment zone is created at key entry points around and through your foundation. As termites tunnel through treatment zones
they ingest the treated soil, which then spreads to other termites throughout the colony.

Termite Inspection Because termite evidence is often hidden for many years before it is detected, behind insulation, boxes, stored items, vegetation, fixed wall and ceiling areas, and drywall, it sometimes takes a well trained eye from  a 1-800-PEST-CONTROL technician to spot termite activity, we recommend a professional termite inspection at least once a year.

Signs of Termites

Here are some common methods for detecting termites:

Wood Damage The pattern in which subterranean termites feed on a piece of wood is hard to miss. These cellulose-loving insects can leave nothing behind but the wood grain. However, termite damage is usually hidden, due to the insects’ habit of eating the wood from the inside out.

Discarded Wings Even if you miss an exterior termite swarm, it may not be difficult to see that it took place. Soon after swarmers take flight, they shed their wings, leaving small piles of wings behind in spider webs and on surfaces around the home’s foundation.

Termite Swarmers Swarmers from mature colonies typically spread their wings and leave their colonies in the springtime in order to start new colonies. Swarms on the exterior of a home may be missed by homeowners, as they are typically brief events during the morning or afternoon — a time when many of people are not at home. Formosan termites can also swarm at dusk.

Mud Tubes Subterranean termites build mud tubes (also known as shelter tubes) to serve as bridges between their colony and the wood they are feasting on. These tubes are made of tiny pieces of soil, wood and debris, and are used to protect the colony from predators and conserve moisture.

Termite Mounds While termites in the United States cause billions of dollars in damage every year, no North American termite species is known to build mounds. Termites that construct their colonies above ground live primarily in Africa and Australia.

Termite Droppings Because termites don’t have the luxury of indoor plumbing, drywood termites often leave behind frass or droppings. These tiny fecal mounds often mean the wood above is infested with termites.
