TERMITE & WOOD DESTROYING PEST CONTROL

Indianapolis Termite Control and Inspection

TERMITES – THE SILENT DESTROYERS

Termites they are known as “silent destroyers” because of their ability to chew through wood, flooring and even wallpaper undetected. Each year, termites cause more than $5 billion in property damage – costs that aren’t covered by homeowners’ insurance policies. This is why being vigilant about termite control and termite extermination is so important.

Swarmers looking to start a new colony are typically the first sign of termite season as these winged-pests show up inside homes in early spring.

HABITS OF TERMITES

Subterranean termites build distinctive tunnels, often referred to as “mud tubes,” to reach food sources and protect themselves from open air. They use their scissor-like jaws to eat wood 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Like other termite species, subterranean termites also feed on products containing cellulose. Subterranean termites swarm in the spring when groups of reproductive termites go off to start new colonies.

TERMITE HABITAT

Subterranean termites live in underground colonies with as many as two million members. They are also found in moist secluded areas above ground.

TERMITE THREATS

Subterranean termites are by far the most destructive termite species. The hard, saw-toothed jaws of termites work like shears and are able to bite off extremely small fragments of wood, one piece at a time. Over time, they can collapse a building entirely, meaning possible financial ruin for a homeowner.
