In the United States alone, termites cause homeowners a staggering $5 billion in damage costs every year. This is because termites hide out in the wood and foundation of your home often only becoming noticeable once a great deal of damage has already been done. Being that your home is most likely your largest investment, wouldn’t it make sense to do everything you can to protect it properly? Call now for a free evaluation of your home!
Drywood Termite Removal
One of the most common types of termites is the Drywood Termite. Drywood termites make their colonies within the wood on which they feed. As they consume wood, they burrow mazes of tunnels and chambers within walls and furniture. These termites leave small piles of feces that resemble sawdust where they have eaten or nested. These insects can cause severe damage such as sagging in floors, walls and ceilings and may leave behind areas which appear to be water-damaged. After the termites swarm and begin new colonies these termites lose their wings and can be found in small piles throughout an infested home. These wings resemble fish scales.
Subterranean Termite Removal
Subterranean termites build their colonies underground and can travel above ground to access sources of food. They enter homes through cracked or unsealed foundations, as well as through tunnels constructed from mud, feces and saliva. These tunnels are brown, dry and cylindrical in appearance. The presence of these tunnels near the foundation of your home is a sure sign of subterranean termite infestation.
