Signs of Termites
The most common sign of a termite infestation is visible mud tubes leading from the ground to any part of your home. These tubes are roughly the diameter of a pen or pencil, and are used by termites to get from their nest to food sources and back. For the fastest termite infestation treatment, ask about our liquid termite control services.

Appearance: Roughly 1/4 inch long with six legs and straight antennae. They shed their wings seasonally, and are often confused with flying ants.
Habitat and Behavior: For protection, termites don’t typically appear in the open. When they do, it’s often a swarm. Swarmers take flight together when it is time to expand their colony.
Diet: Termites are natural recycling centers amd eat dead plants, dead wood, feces and more. Unfortunately, their diet and the breakdown of cellulous is a major contributor to the greenhouse gas methane.
Control: A combination of preventative termite bait stations and professionally administered liquid termiticides are recommended for the treatment of termites.
