Termite Control FAQ
How do I know if I have termite damage?
Most victims of termite infestations do not know until they can visibly see deformities in certain parts of their home or building. In most cases, there is damage to the walls, ceilings, insulation, drywall in the form of scarring, jeopardizing the building’s structural integrity.
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 home?
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 attics or 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.
Mice, rats, and other rodents can be hazardous to your health through their droppings and catching these pests is frustrating or potentially harmful. Our professional exterminators use the best methods that determine what type of rodent you have. From there, our experts lure them away from hard to reach places and utilize traps and poisons that remove them for good. Save your family the headache and let us take care of your rodent problem!
