We may use one or more termite control methods to address your subterranean termite infestation and give you the peace of mind your home is protected.

There can be many signs of an active termite infestation, so be on the lookout for any of the following:

Flying Termites or Discarded Wings

Flying termites, also known as swarmers, are young insects emerging after the last freeze to mate and start a new colony. Finding swarmers or their discarded wings at your windows and doors is a typical first sign of a problem. Termites swarm when the colony has matured and needs to expand. Termites normally swarm on warm days after a heavy rain sometime between 9am and 1pm.

Mud Tubes

You can find mud tubes near your home’s foundation, in your walls, and in your attic or soffits of your home. Mud tubes are normally found inside the home first near windows or doors in the drywall and wood trim. Subterranean termites build these tubes between their food source (your home) and their colony to provide moisture while they travel.

Wood Damage

Termites typically eat wood from the inside out, giving wood a hollow sound when you tap on it. If you notice this or blistering paint on wood, it often signifies a subterranean infestation. Termites can cause structural damage to homes and buildings resulting in thousands of dollars in repair and treatment costs that will not be covered by your homeowner's insurance policy. Let your home town experts at 901 Pest Control inspect your home for visible signs of termite activity and provide you with a free estimate on how to protect your home against the damage these termites can do!

Bubbling or Uneven Paint

Moisture buildup causes paint to bubble or look uneven, which is indicative of two possible problems: termite damage or water damage. Termite damage can be found below and behind surfaces like walls, floors and more. This can be caused by termites chewing through wood in search of cellulose, leaving behind long grooves. A characteristic of termites is dirt/mud inside these chambers. Over time, these grooves weaken the wood and create structural damage. Hollowed wood usually has a honeycomb interior and an empty sound.

Termite Colonies

An Eastern Subterranean Termite colony can range in size from 55,000 to 5 million termites. The average size is 300,000. In our region of the country, there is an average of 15 to 20 termite colonies per acre of land. In other words, chances are high that your home has a termite colony living beneath it with up to 1 million subterranean termites foraging for food (cellulose / wood).
