Know the enemy: Termites
These home invaders actually serve a purpose in nature. They digest wood and other cellulose material, breaking down dead trees and vegetation.
That’s great – until the cellulose they try to break down is part of your home. Then it’s time for action.
Types of Termites
There are three termite types to worry about in the United States. Knowing the types helps you know where to watch out for termite invaders.
This type builds its colonies underground. They need contact with soil to maintain their moisture levels. A regular source of moisture is critical to a subterranean colonys survival.
This type colonizes in wood above ground. Unlike subterranean termites, they Â dont need contact with soil to survive.
This type typically lives in damp and decaying wood. They require regular contact with water as well as a high humidity level to survive. Dampwood termites are the largest in size of the three types.
How termites spread
Termites are social insects and live in colonies with specific roles. There are workers, soldiers, reproductives and even queens.
As a colony matures, it may release winged males and females or swarmers. If they survive, swarmers will settle, shed their wings and form a new colony.
Swarming season occurs in late spring through fall depending on the species and geographic location.
Termites Can Destroy Your Home
More than 600,000 U.S. homes will suffer major termite damage this year because proper termite control was overlooked.
Termites Can Destroy Your Home
Within the Residential sector alone, termite damage will cost home owners over $1.5 billion dollars per year. These figures do not include commercial structures like condominiums, apartment houses or office buildings. These figures also do not include minor damage or termite treatments for infestations that have not yet caused major damage.
HOW TO IDENTIFY termites?
Termites can cause major structural damage to homes and other buildings as well as wooden furniture. People usually only see termites inside when an infestation is already well established, though you may also find termites outside around dead tree stumps, rotting boards or other detritus. Termite colonies are divided into different classes, and most termites only come out in the dark. The most common class that you will see outside of the colony is the alate class, or winged termites.
Some indications you may have a termite infestation:
- (1.) A temporary swarm of winged insects in your home or from the soil around your home.
- (2.) Any cracked or bubbling paint or frass (termite droppings).
- (3.) Wood that sounds hollow when tapped.
- (4.) Mud tubes on exterior walls, wooden beams or in crawl spaces.
