Termites

Call Now! (518) 374-6558
Termites are small insects that pack a giant punch. Their tiny mouths lined with saw-like teeth can inflict major damage on buildings and structures. They feed on wood and products containing cellulose nearly non-stop. If not properly treated and controlled, termites can cause entire structures to collapse.

Identifying Termites

Subterranean termites make up about 90% of termite infestations in the U.S. Termites are often confused with carpenter ants due to similarities in appearances.

Subterranean Termite

    • 1/8 inch long
    • Creamy white to dark black or brown
    • Six legs and antennae
    • Long, narrow, oval bodies
    • Live in underground colonies
    • Build distinctive tunnels called “mud tubes” to reach food sources

Detecting Termites

How do you know if termites are invading? There are a few signs to be aware of:

  1. Flying Termites: The presence of flying termites or swarmers is one of the first signs of a termite problem.
  2. Head Banging: Quiet clicking sounds coming from the walls—the head banging of solider termites—can indicate an infestation.
  3. White Ants: Termites are light in color, usually white or creamy. They may look like ants, but ants are darker—black, brown, and red.

Treat – Protect – Control

Successful prevention includes limiting water accumulation near a building’s foundation. Reducing humidity, diverting water away through functioning downspouts, and eliminating wood contact with the soil are all crucial factors to termite control.

If you suspect a termite infestation, don’t delay.
