Termite Identification & Prevention

What are termites?

Due to our warm and humid weather here, termites are a common problem for homeowners. The most common species are subterranean termites, which require a lot of moisture to survive. Subterranean termites are attracted to water-damaged or decaying wood, only feeding on the soft parts of the wood.

Instead of living inside the wood they eat, subterranean termites live underground in the soil and build pathways above the ground to get to a food source using dirt, waste, and saliva. These pathways are called mud tubes and are often one of the first signs of termites in your home.

Are termites dangerous?

Termites are dangerous due to the damage they create, not because of diseases or biting or stinging. Depending on how long termites have been present on a property, they can cause costly and structurally dangerous damage. Catching termite infestations as early as possible is essential in order to prevent them from doing severe damage.

Why do I have a termite problem?

As mentioned above, subterranean termites gravitate to wood damaged by water or decaying. Moisture issues are not always apparent in a home, so you may not realize you have this underlying problem that can attract termites. For example, your home might have poor ventilation, which allows moisture to build up, affecting the home's structure. You may have also had flooding or leaks that weren't adequately repaired or dried out.
