What do Termites look like?

 

Whether you’re buying a home or property or are interested in keeping your home or business safe from termites, one thing’s for sure. It pays to know what these pests look like!

 

Identifying Termites

 

There are two types of termites here in North Carolina: the Subterranean and Drywood termite. The main difference between the two is where they make their home. The Subterranean termites build their nests underground, while the Drywood termites nest inside wood at any location and height.

Termites usually measure between a quarter and a half inch in length and are white or light brown in color. You’ll notice long wings and straight antennae on these critters if you happen to spot one. Drywood termites are generally larger than there subterranean cousins.

What Damage Do Termites Cause?

 

Both drywood and subterranean termites will eat through the cellulose found in wood, causing damage to not only the structure of your home, but any furniture or wood piles as well. Due to their quiet nature and hidden territories, they are often the reason many home or business owners end up with thousands of dollars in repairs. It’s important to have a regular inspection and be on the lookout for any signs of termite damage.

What are the Signs of Termite Damage?

 

If you notice sagging floors, wood that appears to be water damaged, hollow sounding wood, or stuck windows or doors, that could be an indication there is termite damage. Other clues include seeing mud tubes around your baseboards and hearing a low clicking noise from within the walls.

 

How Do I Get Rid of Termites?

 

The best way to eliminate a termite problem is to start with proactive measures from our team to keep them out. However, if you are currently playing host to these quiet wood-eating insects, a trained and licensed pest control expert like us can help you by treating the problem with safe and effective termite solutions.
