Termite Control FAQ
How much damage can termites cause?
While there is no damage stats on businesses, it can be safe to say that they cost more in damage compared to a residential home due to a company’s building size. Other factors and such as location and accessibility can raise the costs of treatment. Termites affect about 600,000 homes and about $5 billion total per year. Damage to commercial buildings can be extremely detrimental for a business.
Where do termites live?
There are three main types of termites: subterranean, dampwood, or drywood, each living in different places. Subterranean termites live in mud tubes under the ground. Dampwood termites in moist, wet wood (such as a fallen log), and drywood in decayed or non-decayed wood, meaning that they are especially attracted to attics, wood framing, doors, and furniture.
How do termites get into my building?
Subterranean termites navigate through mud tubes, small tunnels that are used to get from one place to another to find their next wooden meal. Drywood termites involve swarmers, finding new food sources as they look to make a new colony. This is especially apparent in non-screened vents, cracked window frames, and infested wood or furniture taken from the outside and brought inside. Dampwood termites are not as common as they require lots of moisture. However, they can still be present through water leaks or bringing in damp wood or mulch.
