Schedule Termite Control Service
Termites are small insects that feed on the wood within buildings. There are roughly 50 different species of termites in North America. Each species boasts unique biological characteristics and requirements for where they can build their colonies. Our team of certified technicians understand termite behavior and how best to keep them under control. We believe the best option for termite control is preventative treatment.

Signs of an Existing Termite Infestation In Your Home
Often times with termite damage, you may notice the warning signs long after extensive damage has been dealt within the walls of your building. Termites chew on wood starting at the inside of a structure and move outward. This is why waiting until you spot termite damage is a bad idea. The best protection from termite damage is preventative termite treatment. However, if you do notice any of the signs below, contact us immediately.
Subterranean termites create mud tubes as a way of traveling around your home. Mud tubes are made from wood particles, soil, termite spit and even their droppings. You likely find mud tubes around exterior concrete walls and near the foundation of buildings, if termites are active at your location.
Swarmers & Discarded Wings
The term “swarmers” refers to winged adult termites. Swarmers are responsible for reproduction and starting new colonies. As swarmers reproduce, their wings fall off of their bodies. If you see discarded wings around your building’s foundation, on window sills, or even in spider webs, there’s likely an active termite infestation nearby.
Structural & Wood Damage
The most common sign of termite damage is damaged and chewed through wood. Termites create long, hollow grooves in wood as they chew. These grooves compromise the structural integrity of a building, and make a hollow sound when knocked on.
