Can Termites Bite Humans?

Do Termites Bite People?

 

If you have never dealt with termites before and are worried about a pest in your home that’s biting you, you might wonder if a termite could be the culprit. One of the most common questions we get from customers is: do termites bite people? The answer is usually no, but there is an exception to that rule.

Soldier termites are members of the colony that have the mission of protecting their Queen and fellow termites. While most termites will not bite, these guys are the exception to the rule. Soldier termites have a larger head and bigger jaws than the rest of the colony, which makes it easier for them to bite in the event you cross paths with one. If you do get bitten by a termite, it will probably resemble a mosquito bite in size, itchiness, and redness. There have been no instances of termites spreading disease, so a hydrocortisone cream should do the trick for treating a bite should one occur.

We get many questions regarding termites, and our team is here to answer them all for you. However, if you think you may have a termite infestation, act quickly and call us at 888-MRCLEGG to schedule a FREE initial pest inspection. Don’t wait and let the damage costs build up – we can help provide a solution today!

 

Do Termites Bite Pets?

 

If your dog or cat enjoys spending time outside, there’s really no need to worry about protecting them against termite bites. Since these insects like to hide out in dark and damp spaces, it’s highly unlikely that your pet will come into contact with them. Should they get a bite, just make sure they don’t aggravate the area with excessive itching.

 

What Insect is Biting Me?

 

If you or someone in your home is being bitten by an unwelcome guest, it probably is not a termite. Fleas, bed bugs, mites, and other pests could be responsible for the itchy red welts. A pest control professional like us will be able to correctly identify the problem and give you a custom solution to give you back your home or office!

How Will I Know if I Have Termites?

 

Be on the lookout for hollow sounding wood, stuck doors or windows, mud tubes along your baseboards, a quiet clicking from within the walls, or droppings that resemble small wood pellets.
