Termite Control Options for Your Home

Protect your home from termites.

Why is termite control and prevention so important in Florida?

Every year termites cause more property damage in the U.S. than floods, fires, hurricanes and earthquakes, combined. It may also surprise you to know that termite damage is not typically covered by homeowner's insurance.

Your home can easily be protected from costly subterranean termite damage by utilizing the latest in termite baiting technology. Drywood termites on the other hand, can not be prevented, but can be eliminated by fumigating your home.

Are they Subterranean or Drywood Termites?

Understanding the differences between subterranean and drywood termites is the only way to identify and control them. Winged subterranean termites have darker bodies than their drywood counterparts, but since homeowners rarely get the chance to see termites, we'll focus on other features that can help identify them.

Subterranean Termites

Image
  • Swarming Season: Usually springtime, during daylight
  • Indicators: Mud tubes used to travel through exposed terrain (ie. outside on concrete walls, within crawl spaces connecting ground and floor beams)
  • Nests: Located below ground and require contact with soil and plenty of moisture
  • Control method: Baiting with the Sentricon® System with AlwaysActive™️ Technology

Drywood Termites

Image
  • Swarming season: Usually summertime, during the night
  • Indicators: Frass (termite droppings) look tiny wood colored pellets that are left in piles outside their wood tunnels
  • Nests: Located above ground, often in the attic
  • Control method: Spot treatments and Structural Fumigation

Are they Flying Ants or Termites?

Reproductive ants and termites both have wings to fly out in to the world and produce new colonies, so they are often mistaken for one another. Here are some clues to help identify them, but if you find anything that resembles a winged termite or flying ant inside your home, we highly recommend scheduling a free evaluation of your property.
