Not sure though?

Here’s some tips to spot them into order to get those little insect rascals under control:

Depending on where you live, you will observe termite swarms in the early spring.

They can be confused with flying ants, so you will want to look for other signs:

  • Soft or decaying wood on your house.
  • Tubes of mud near the foundation or interior of your home.
  • Darkening or swelling of your wood structure.

They’ll eat any kind of wood material from a homes foundation to its furniture.

Unfortunately, they sometimes even eat through clothes, so your vintage Channel frock might not be safe.

Termites are a pest that need control – a termite infestation will not just cure itself with time – it only gets worse.

Every year, they attack about four million homes in the United States.

They cost over $5 billion in property damage. Termite damage is more common than damage caused by storms, fire or earthquakes, yet is rarely covered by homeowners insurance.

Big bummer.

But if you stay on top of your game, you can stop the little devilish looking things from destroying what you’ve worked so hard for.

So you ask, “What is my first step for Subterranean Termite control?”
