Few pests can cause expansive damage to a home or structure like termites. In North Carolina, they emerge from their subterranean nests every spring, taking flight in vast swarms to create new colonies. Where they land, they burrow into the earth, building mud tubes to protect them from the elements and allowing them to make their way in where there are plentiful sources of food, including cellulose insulation and wood floor joists, framing, and eaves. Before most homeowners even realize there home has termites, the insects have caused thousands of dollars in damage.
Instead of waiting for signs of damage, contact our termite and pest control company in Durham. We will provide a comprehensive, free termite inspection and, if we find signs of an infestation, we will treat as needed to effectively exterminate them. We can also make sure they stay gone when you sign up for an affordable pest control package.
What Are Termites?
Termites are small insects, measuring 1/2″ long and range in off-white and brown in color who feed on cellulose-based material, like dead leaves, paper, and wood. While termites can be active in the winter months, most species found in North Carolina are subterranean, meaning they dig deep into the ground, protected by warmer, moist soil.
In the spring, they emerge from underground to mate and create a new colony. You may even see swarms of them flying, thinking they’re gnats, but it’s actually hundreds or thousands of termites. Once they land, they begin seeking a food source, making their way into homes within the walls, basements, and attics where wood is plentiful and there’s little chance of being disturbed. Unless they are removed fast, the colony grows rapidly eating their way to thousands of dollars in structural damage to your home.
