SIGNS OF TERMITE INFESTATION


  • Swarming Termites either inside your home or outside.
  • Damaged paint, droppings, or dropped wings from swarmers.
  • Mud tubes, especially near cracks or openings where the termites can enter the home.
  • Hollow sounding wood.
  • Damage coming thru wood or wall surface.

 


SUBTERRANEAN TERMITES


 

Eastern Subterranean Termites
Eastern Subterranean termites live in the soil and build large nests. They connect to food sources by building mud tubes, which protect them from the air. They feed on wood and other cellulose material. Eastern Subterranean termites are extremely destructive, with colonies numbering up to two million members.

 

Formosan Termites
Formosan termites also live in the soil although they do not require direct contact with the soil. They can also live in “carton” nests that they make from chewed wood, saliva, and fecal matter.  This carton helps retain moisture in the nest. Formosan termite colonies are much larger than Eastern Subterranean colonies and can cause damage at a much faster rate.

 

 


DRYWOOD TERMITES


 

Drywood termites live inside of wood instead of the ground. Their colonies are smaller than the Eastern Subterranean termite colonies and are typically confined to a small area. One of the most tell-tale signs of a Drywood termite infestation is the presence of “frass”, which is their fecal matter.  It is in the form of a hexagonal shaped pellet about 1 millimeter long. They push the pellets through small kick-out holes.

BugPro Can Help with our Termite Control Services


If you are in need of a termite treatment, we offer a Bait System, Liquid Treatment, or a service of both. The Bait System is the most effective and ECO friendly, but at times a Liquid treatment is necessary.  

Termite Liquid Treat – A liquid chemical barrier is applied around your home, giving you peace of mind that those pesky termites will be exterminated.

Termite Bait Stations – Termite detection stations are placed around your home that detect termite activity. Once detected, a bait is introduced, exterminating those wood destroying termites. This is the least evasive, eco-friendly termite treatment. A liquid termite treatment is available with this service also.

Termite Pretreats – This treatment is required prior to construction of a new home.

Termite Inspections – A thorough inspection of your current or prospective home is provided to you and your lending institution.

Foam Injection – Injection of Foam Termiticide into infested areas inside wall voids.

Wood Borate Treatments is an alternative for fumigation. Termite Fumigation is usually very expensive and you must evacuate your home for treatment. Not to mention the Fumigant is deadly to humans.
