Termites are considered the “silent destroyer” they do billions of dollars of damage to homes every year. Every home is susceptible to termites.  Protecting your home is as important to us as it is to you. We won’t just check your home for termites, we’ll recommend precautions to avoid termites and educate you about treatment plans to protect your home.

 

 

 

Termites or Ants

  • Winged ants have two pairs of wings with the front pair larger than the hind pair; both pairs of termite wings are 

  • the same shape and size.

  • Ants have elbowed antennae; termites have short, straight beaded antennae.

  • Ants have a distinct constriction between body regions; termites have a gradual constriction.

  • Don’t be fooled by color or size: ants and termites can vary both in size and color based on species.

 


What are the warning signs of an infestation in my home?

 

Unfortunately, there may be few warning signs but you can look for the following:

  • Termites “swarming” during the day or early evening, often after rainfall

  • Termite evidence in or around windows and doorframes

  • Shelter  tubes appearing on or around the foundation

  • Baseboards and floors which may sound hollow

  • Termites or termite wings on window sills or along walls

 

The best way to determine the presence of termites in your home is with a thorough home inspection from a pest management professional.
