The Pest: Termites
Termites aren’t merely a nuisance; they are flat-out destructive. Responsible for more than $30 billion in property damage every year, this is one insect you can’t afford to have in your home or business. Routine termite inspections and termite control services are a must for every property owner.
Termites live in colonies and are split into three levels of social class: workers, soldiers, and king/queen (also known as swarmers or reproducers).
- Workers are translucent white in color and feed the rest of the colony by chewing through the wood in your home. Their lifespan can last up to five years. They travel through wood or the mud tubes that they create.
- Soldiers stay near the colony to protect the queen from invasion. They are larger than the workers in size with elongated yellow heads.
- Kings/queens are the only termites you typically see. Often confused with flying ants, these termites “swarm” in spring and summer as they search for fresh wood to feast on. They are dark brown to black in color and measure ½” in length with grayish, translucent wings. As they swarm, they shed these wings, leaving behind subtle, yet telltale, signs of their existence. These wings are your first indication that your home is infested.
The Resolution: Termite Control Services
Resolution Pest takes termites very seriously. Property owners and real estate agents should contact us for a Wood Destroying Insect Report (WDIR) before closing any real estate transaction.
We know that the first signs of termites aren’t often obvious at first glance, so it’s important to detect an infestation early before too much damage is done. Because of this, we recommend periodic inspections by a licensed pest expert. But if you see termite evidence or suspect an infestation, call us for an inspection immediately.
We offer a full range of treatment options that include a liquid barrier treatment and a termite baiting system. Both of these offers include an optional damage guarantee. We also provide a monitoring service for those interested in termite prevention. There’s no time for hesitation when it comes to termites.
