What You Should Know About Termites
It has been suggested that there are only two types of homes: those that have termites and those that will have termites in the future. Whether you live in the north or south, or have a new or old home, your home is a target for termites. Termites enter your home through tiny cracks in the foundation or slab, through utility entry points, or anywhere that soil contacts wood. If they can’t find an easy entrance point near the ground, they will construct mud tunnels up the side of a structure to access areas above ground. The damage termites cause may not be as dramatic as a fire or a tornado, but eventually it can threaten the structural integrity of your house. Their presence is not readily noticed, and damage often is discovered before the termites are seen.
- Worker termites forage 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. They never sleep.
- Termite queens are believed to live 15 to 25 years and are capable of laying an egg every 15 seconds.
- Termites rarely expose themselves to light and can actually die from direct sunlight exposure.
How Do I Know If I Have Termites?
Subterranean termites are found in 49 of the 50 states and Puerto Rico (everywhere except Alaska).
Termites rarely come to the surface of what they're eating, so most of the time you will never know they have invaded your home until it is too late. If they have, you may see some of these warning signs:
- Swarming or flying termites in the house, especially near sources of light. Termites typically swarm from January to July.
- Small wings near windows, doors or in the garage.
- Mud tunnels along the foundation of your house, inside or outside.
- Small holes in the wood or drywall or buckling paint.
Swarming ants and termites look very similar. Compare the characteristics in the image to the left.
In addition to Using Spectracide Terminate Termite Detection & Killing Stakes2
Eliminate any sources of moisture for termites
Check for leaky water spigots, sump pumps or sprinklers.Look for any areas that stay moist for a long time, such as mulch or under bricks or large rocks and ensure that water flows away from your home. Also check for interior leaks in pipes or from roof drainage. Pay particular attention to areas near kitchens or bathrooms, and attached porches or decks.
Remove potential food sources
These include direct wood-to-soil contact (fences, stairs, trellises), wood piles, stumps or dead bushes and other wood debris.
Apply a pre-treatment
When building a new home, check with your contractor for soil pre-treatments that can be applied by an authorized pest control operator.
Have a regular termite inspection
Certified termite inspectors can point out other areas that attract termites to your home and may recommend other treatments such as mechanical alteration, soil or foundation treatments.
