About this pest

Short Description of Termites and Their Behavior:

Termites are social insects that thrive in colonies and are known for their destructive ability to feed on wood. They silently consume cellulose-based materials, including wooden structures, furniture, and books, often causing significant structural damage before being detected. The two most common types are subterranean termites, which build mud tubes to access food sources, and drywood termites, which live entirely within the wood.

Why You Might Be Seeing Termites in Your Home:

  • Moisture Issues: Leaky pipes, poor drainage, and high humidity create the ideal environment for termites.

  • Wood-to-Ground Contact: Wooden structures that touch the ground can serve as easy access points for termites.

  • Cracks and Crevices: Termites can enter through small cracks in foundations, walls, or utility lines.

  • Mulch and Wood Debris: Mulch beds, firewood piles, and wooden debris attract termites seeking cellulose.

  • Neighboring Infestations: Termites can spread from nearby infested homes or outdoor colonies.
