Termite Control Services
Termites are damaging pests known to consume materials containing cellulose, such as wood, paper, and books. They cause extensive damage to structures, furniture, crops, and other wooden objects, so early detection of their presence is essential. However, since their actions usually go unnoticed, identifying an infestation often happens after significant destruction, necessitating expensive repairs and treatments to eradicate the termites.
Professional help is needed to remove termites from your property. At Tom’s Pest Control, we possess the knowledge, tools, and chemicals to manage and eradicate termite infestations effectively. Moreover, our extensive experience in the field gives us access to advanced pest control techniques, such as bait systems and chemicals that can efficiently remove termites from your home or office.
Types of Termites
Termites that often invade homes include:
Signs of Termite Infestation
Many signs could indicate a termite infestation in your home or office.
- Termites may swarm during certain times of the year, which means that reproductive termites leave their nests to start new colonies. This can be the first visible sign of a termite infestation.
- Termites that live underground construct mud tubes to move back and forth from their dwelling to their food source. These tubes are typically as wide as a pencil and are detectable on the outside walls, bases, or floors. Therefore, spotting these mud tubes can be a sign of termite infestation.
- Termites can potentially cause extensive harm to wooden constructions, causing them to become brittle and vulnerable to collapse. If you tap a wooden surface and hear a hollow sound, it could indicate termite damage.
- Termites usually abandon their wings during the swarming period and leave them behind close to windowsills or door frames.
- Termites leave behind small, rectangular-shaped droppings, which can collect near their colonies or on windowsills and ledges. Drywood termites typically produce these droppings.
In case of a suspected termite invasion, it is advisable to get your property examined by a competent pest control company to validate the presence of termites and identify the most effective treatment options.
