Termite Control

Just like snowbirds who move down here for the great weather, termites of all species have found Florida to be an ideal place to live. Here, termites can breed and thrive year-round without the cold weather to slow them down. Most termites can fall into one of two categories: subterranean or drywood. Both can cause a lot of damage.

Subterranean Termites

Subterranean termites require lots of moisture to survive which is why they prefer to live and make their nests underground or in dead trees. However, if there is plenty of moisture available, they can build nests above ground, namely your house.

Subterranean termites construct mud tubes to move above ground to forage for food. The tubes both protect them from being seen by predators and retain the moisture they need to survive. These tubes can be constructed along the sides of buildings until the termites find a point of entry into your home.

If your roof or basement leaks, is very damp or there are cracks in the walls/foundation you could find yourself the host of a termite infestation. Always keep your attics and basements dry to deter subterranean termites and keep firewood at least 20 feet away from your home.

Drywood Termites

Drywood termites infest both hard and softwoods, including lumber and furniture. These are the most common type of termite in the US and usually the kind that comes to mind when we think of termites. These pests can live in any wooden structure of your house and can cause considerable structural and foundational damage to homes and buildings.

Signs of Termites

  • Mud tubes (used by subterranean termites to gain entry) on the exterior of buildings
  • Softwood in the home that sounds hollow when tapped
  • Darkening or blistering of wood structures
  • Small piles of frass (feces) that resemble sawdust
  • Discarded wings near doors or on windowsills
