How dangerous can a bug really be? This question is asked when an owner is faced with the problem of termites, and the answer is they can be very dangerous. Drywood termites are primarily found in coastal areas and can spread very quickly throughout the many rooms and floors of a structure. Failure to contain and eradicate them with the help of a Termite Exterminator will result in severe damage to a structure. Trying to determine if there are active termites in a home should be left up to an experienced exterminator who will thoroughly inspect a home or business.
Signs Of Drywood Termites
A clear sign of drywood termite infestations is piles of dropping pellets on places like windowsills. Drywood termites will eat wood against or with the grain. Wood that is eaten against the grain is usually an indication that termites are present and a Termite Exterminator should be contacted. Signs of swarmers or worker termites can help an exterminator determine how severe an infestation is and the best way to stop it.
Signs Of Subterranean Termites
Subterranean termites require contact with the soil for their survival. This type of termite is the most aggressive termite and can travel quickly while remaining undetected in their mud tubes. Swarms of flying termites and mud tubes are signs there’s a problem, but only an experienced exterminator can look for other entry points and signs of activity in and around a home or business.
Best Way To Exterminate Termites?
Tent fumigation is the most reliable way to remove termites in a building because the treatment reaches every level. Sealing the entire structure can provide complete eradication in one application and prevent re-infestation that can happen when a spot treatment is performed. An extermination company can safely seal an entire home with a tent, and gas will remain within the tent for two to 72 hours until the termites are gone.
