Termites, after they have made a nest can be hard to find. Some termites have wings and fly. Some people like to call them "swarmers", because they fly together in a big swarm. These little critters eat up wood and other types of surfaces causing a lot of damages to homes. The thing is, they usually start their job out in places where they are very difficult to spot. Unless of course you are like us and you know exactly where to look! What allows these pests to cause a lot of damages to homes is the fact that people have no idea that the damage is being done until they can feel it or see it. What can be done to make sure that this doesn’t happen? We are so glad you asked!
We say time and time again that pest control is not a one-time thing it is an ongoing process. Almost like watching your weight.

The same thing happens with pest control. We can take care of a full-on invasion of termites, but if you don’t keep checking up on your home termites may come back.

We can apply treatments to your home periodically to make sure that we can fight off termites before they start invading certain areas of your home.

How To Spot Termites
Termites are about the same size as a carpenter ant, so the chances of spotting a single termite are pretty low. The thing is they usually show up in bunches. If you spot a lot of little critters gathered up around a wooden area chances are that you’ve found them. They can easily be confused with carpenter ants. Either way, there is an issue if you see a lot of these critters. If you see any signs, give us a call right away!
