After a few months of cool weather during the winter months, springtime in Tallahassee can be a pleasant time to enjoy the outdoors before the hot and humid summer months arrive.

Even the honey bees are starting to enjoy the nice weather as they are starting to pollinate all of the pretty flowers blooming throughout the city. Unfortunately, there is another insect that is also starting to become active in Tallahassee, the Formosan subterranean termite.

In general, many species of subterranean termites are naturally found in the soil of forests where they feed on fallen trees. To these termites, our wooden houses are a buffet of fallen trees ready to be feasted upon. Subterranean termites cause an estimated $5 billion in damages and repair costs each year in the United States.

These insects work together in colonies like honeybees, do but instead of getting nectar and pollen, they feed on wood. Wood seems a lot less appetizing than feeding on nectar and honey. Like honey bees who have a queen bee and workers, termites have a queen that produces all of the babies and workers to take care of the colony. Unlike honeybees, there are also specialized workers called soldiers who defend the colony from intruders.

Formosan subterranean termites are originally from China and were introduced into the United States in the 1960s. They have been established in Florida since the 1980s. Native species of subterranean termites, such as the Eastern subterranean termite, can cause damage to homes, but the Formosan termites can cause damage much more quickly than these native species.

The Formosan termites have larger colonies and are much more aggressive. If these termites are not eradicated from an infested house, they can destroy the entire house. There have been buildings in Tallahassee and in other areas of Florida that have been demolished because of extensive infestations of Formosan subterranean termites.

There are a few different signs of the presence of subterranean termites in a building. One of the signs that a building has an infestation of termites is the presence of mud tubes running along walls or other support structures in a home.

Subterranean termites like to live in moist environments like the soil and will construct mud tubes wherever they go so that they are constantly in a humid environment. Mud tubes can be found in crawl spaces under the home or even in the interior areas throughout the home. Sometimes mud tubes are hidden inside walls where they are not easily visible.

Because mud tubes are not always easily visible, the termite colony is sometimes able to grow to a large enough size before it is detected. The next sign of termite activity in a home happens when a colony has become mature enough to produce special termites with wings that will potentially become new queens and kings. These special winged termites are called alates. When conditions are right, these alates will swarm out of the colony and try to fly to a new area to start another termite colony. If these termites are from a colony that is in a home, they will swarm inside a house.

It can be pretty surprising to wake up one morning to find hundreds of alates flying inside your home. Once these alates mate, they will clip off their wings before trying to make a new colony. Sometimes you might not notice the alates flying around in your home but will find piles of wings by the window or in other areas of the house where the termites were flying.

Different species of subterranean termites swarm at different times of the year. Native species, such as the Eastern subterranean termites, swarm at the beginning of the year, but Formosan termites will start to swarm in mid-April and will stop swarming at some point in July. Formosan termites are unique from native termite species in that they will swarm at dusk and are attracted to lights.

Homeowners will occasionally leave their garage door open with lights on inside and attract these alates into their garages. The presence of Formosan termites in a garage doesnt necessarily mean your house is infested, but that the termites were attracted into your garage from a neighboring area.

If you discover that you have any of these signs of Formosan or other subterranean termites in your house, it is important that you contact a licensed pest control company to get your house treated. As a special note, many pest control companies in the Southeast United States are starting to not do termite treatments on homes that have spray foam insulation. This spray foam insulation can make your home more difficult to inspect for termite activity and the foam can absorb moisture which termites love.

If you would like to prevent your home from future termite invasions, there are a variety of options that a licensed pest control company can offer. Some companies will even offer contracts to pay for any damage termites cause to your home after a treatment has been performed.

Make sure to read all termite treatment contracts carefully so that your expectations are in line with what the pest control company is offering. Not all contracts will cover damages from Formosan termites. Usually native termite species are covered if they cause future damage in homes.

While all termites play an important role in recycling nutrients of dead trees back into the soil, this natural recycling process isnt welcomed when it also involves our homes. Being proactive in protecting your home from termites can help preserve your home over the course of ownership.

What Do You Do if You See a Termite Swarm?

Posted: at 2:47 pm

Termite Swarms Are a Sign To Get Help

When termites swarm indoors, they will come out of walls or wooden construction (baseboards, door frames, posts, etc.) through small holes. These are called exit holes and were created by worker termites. A termite swarm will last about 30-40 minutes and the swarming termites will fly toward a light source, typically collecting around windows and sliding glass doors. If these termites cannot find soil, they will die in a few hours from dehydration. Often homeowners come home from work to find many dead swarmers (or sometimes just their wings) on window sills, counter tops, around furniture, etc. This is the aftermath of a termite swarm.

Most of the time, a termite swarm is the only time homeowners actually see termites or find out they have termites before damage is discovered. Mature termite colonies will produce winged reproductive termites that will fly off from the colony in great numbers. This is natures way of termites spreading and establishing new colonies. Termite swarms can occur both indoors and outside.

Termites cause an estimated $5 billion in damages in the U.S. every year, according to the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA). For U.S. residences in 2017 alone, termites were responsible for an estimated $1 billion in damage and approximately $30 billion in total damage to U.S. crops and man-made structures. For the average U.S. residence, termite damage could cost you about $3000 or more depending on the amount of inflicted damage and the size of the swarm.

The sunshine states warm, humid climate is the perfect recipe for termite infestations. Understanding the signs of termite activity is critical for home and business owners alike.

Learn the BEST Termite Control Products, Methods …

Posted: at 2:45 pm

Some people prefer to opt for more natural termite control methods when they are viable. Luckily, there are some very effective natural control methods available. One of the more common and popular treatments at the moment is orange oil treatment for termite infestations but it is really only effective for spot treatment of a limited termite infestation.

Termite bait stations are not intended to kill termites immediately. Instead, it is meant to contaminate termites who come in contact with the bait and then rely on the social nature of termites to carry the poison back and spread it to the entire colony. The goal is for it to eventually kill the queen termite since without her the termite colony will perish.

Keep in mind this doesnt happen overnight. It can take up to a year or longer depending on how extensive the infestation is. Another factor that affects the total amount of time from initial contact with the baiting system until the queen termites death is what time of the year the treatment first takes place.

For instance, if the bait system is emplaced in the fall, it will take longer to reach and kill the queen since termites slow down and are less active during winter months. If you emplace the bait systems during the spring, the opposite is true.

Both heat treatment and fumigation are known as whole structure termite treatments and are intended to do as the name implies treat your entire structure!

Whole structure fumigation or heat treatment is usually recommended only after an established drywood termite colony is identified by a professional termite inspection. The other approach besides whole structure termite treatments, would be protective wood treatments, but his is more of a preventative measure than a way to get rid of drywood termites.

Heat treatment, which is sometimes called termite heat fumigation, very similar to fumigation but instead of using fumigant pesticides, it uses heat to kill termites.

Termite specialists set up special heaters to spread hot air through the home, typically between 120 to 140 degrees Fahrenheit. To kill drywood termites, the internal temperature of the wood must reach at least 120 degrees Fahrenheit for at least 35 degrees. This is because drywood termites live and take shelter inside wood. A big benefit of heat treatment over fumigation is that heat treatment usually takes less than a day and avoids the need for using fumigants.

There are some risks to heat treatment:

Posted: at 10:48 am

Termites consume massive amounts of wood in your home, usually in a way that isnt immediately noticed by the homeowner. Termites are more destructive than fire. Periodic inspections are necessary to prevent this pest from destroying your house. Various species can live in ground, cracks in cement, foundations, walls, floors, attics, and even the wood structures of sofas and beds.

Since termite infestation is usually hidden and not easily recognizable to an untrained eye, an effective control program begins with a thorough inspection of the structure by a licensed specialist. An effective control program can be implemented after finding the proper genus of termite and sites of infestation.

Dewey termite specialists have the training, field experience and tools necessary to diagnose a problem. They will recommend the proper termite control treatment that will protect your investment by keeping the property termite free.

No matter how old your home is, where it is located, or how it is constructed, it is susceptible to being attacked by all types of termites. Every year, they cause billions of dollars in damage in the United States alone. Chances are youll never even see any evidence of termite or termite damage until its too late.

Mike as the inspector came in for inspection. He is very knowledgeable and very patient to explain the process. End up my house was in good condition and only one spot found in the attic. same day I got the quote from them.After about a month and have been thru different quotes from another companies. They still have the best price. I explained my concern about planning fix the minor spot my own to Mike, He called me and taught me how to DIY in my attic step by step. He spent almost half hour over the phone spell out the name of the product I should get. He is very helpful and patient.I feel bad that end up I didn’t do business with them.But I sure whenever I encounter whoever need termite service. Termite Biz is always the only one that I will recommend to you.No wondering they are have 5 stars review!Thank you again!

These guys were great. Did a good job with the initial report – easy to schedule a time, on time for the appointment, got initial report back to me very quickly (couple days, I think). Found a plumbing leak and told me about it, recommended I get that fixed before doing the termite work, which I did. Did the termite work months later and remembered who I was (always a good sign). Showed up on time and communicated with me throughout the process. No surprises, no drama, and followed up with a summary report showing the work done and what was left to do…just in case I hadn’t gone back through the detailed termite report to see what was left, which, of course, I hadn’t!I liked them, they were nice, professional, and, though I haven’t had to, I feel like if I have any questions or follow-up work to do, they’ll be easy to work with.

Marvin is very honest and quick responsive regarding all my questions. I would recommend him to my friend and family! Very professional and hard worker!

Mike was our inspector. He did a very thorough inspection and was very prompt and professional throughout the entire process.

I’d like to personally write about how pleasant of an experience it was working with Marvin, Mike and his team! They were efficient, open, straightforward, and informative about the entire process. I can’t express how good I feel about having done business with their company and for our future relationship as well.

Complete 5-star service! Marvin & team are the best. Very responsive, professional, high quality work. We have used Termite Biz twice – once 4+ years ago and again this past month. Still the same top-notch customer service. Very impressed and highly recommend for your termite needs!!

This place is 100Communication was very good. Asked for a free estimate & Marvin responded very quickly with their next available date. I asked if any of the workers were fluent in Vietnamese as my mom was the one requesting the service & I wanted her to be able to talk to the inspector just in case. Marvin was very accommodating & switched my scheduled inspector with someone who did speak Vietnamese.Day of the inspection, Mike our inspector had contacted me saying he was in the area & could come sooner if we wanted which we did. Mike was very polite, knowledgable, hardworking & talkative. Inspection was about an hour & Mike was very thorough. We had just moved in & Mike pointed out some non-termite problems he noticed like our water heater was leaking which was very nice of him. Mike explained everything he did, went over everything he found in detail, gave honest suggestions & had no problem repeating everything in english for me & Vietnamese for my mom. Mike explained that Tenting was not necessary & explained our options to us and never tried to convince us to buy services we didn’t need. My mom insisted on getting the Tenting though.Our family was on a time crunch & my mom was having second thoughts on Tenting or just the Basic Spraying and I had mentioned that to Mike. Marvin called & gave me his honest opinion along with the differences with going with Tenting or the Basic Spraying service & answered any questions I had. I ended up going with the Basic Spraying.The rate for the service was reasonable & came with a warranty & a free follow-up inspection at the end of the warranty with a free service if anything was wrong.The day of the Spray Service, Mike returned with 2 coworkers Nick & Jerry. The team was very nice & hard working. Took about 1-2 hours because I do have a rather big house. They sprayed areas that were directly infected, my attics & outside my house. I was doing some tree work & Mike voluntarly asked if I wanted the tree sprayed as well which was above & beyond!To sum everything up, Termite Biz was great through out the entire process. The communication was great, they are all very hardworkers at what they do & they seem to very much care about customer satisfaction. Thank you Termite Biz!

Marvin and Nick were great to work with. Quick, efficient, thorough. They made a miserable process as easy it can possibly be, and we couldn’t have asked for better. Highly recommend.

Very professional service and reasonable price. They took care of the drywood termite, and also the subterranean termite which was not reported on my previous inspection report from another company with no extra charge.

Excellent service and very professional. Prices are reasonable and they perform a thorough job – inspection and treatment. Highly recommend!

Just wanted to thank you and your company for the excellent work in handling our serious termite issue. We appreciate that Nick (and the other 2 workers) took care of things in a professional and timely manner while being kind and careful to cover and protect items in our stores. Thanks again Marvin for everything! It has been a pleasure working with you. We truly appreciate your knowledge and kind help as well as your prompt, professional and friendly service. You have an excellent company and we will be glad to recommend others to you.

Marvin from Termite Biz was very responsive from start to finish and offered the best price of all the companies I reached out to. Even though I never met him in person since we were using an existing inspection report from a different company, the team showed up right on schedule, tented the home, and everything was finished in a timely manner. Marvin gave me step by step instructions on how to prep for the fumigation and followed up with me after. Great company and I will recommend to others in the future!

Super friendly, very respectful of our home, super fast response, scheduling and extermination. They took the time to do a through full inspection and explain to me the problems and how the treatment would go. They were in and out quickly and I am 100% satisfied.

Great Fumigation and Preventive Treatment ServiceJust bought a house and the termite report recommended to do a fumigation. We contacted a handful termite treatment companies for quote. Marvin from Termite Biz provided the most competitive price, and he was the only one to point out that my house roof is made of tiles, which might be damaged during the fumigation as a man with 80lb tent will be on the roof. He answered all my questions patiently and layed out possible solutions and costs.We finally chose fumigation and preventive treatment service for our house.The fumigation was subcontracted to a local fumigation company. They did a great job! 3 guys came to my house on time and worked non-stop for about 3 hours. The house is artistically wrapped. My house is about 3 stories with balconies and stairs. They did a wonderful job. They let me know how many tiles were broken before and did not damage any tile for the process. After the fumigation was done, Mike and another term member came over for the preventive treatment. It took them about 1 hour to finish the work. Mike explained the process and answered all my questions. He also mentioned that some signs for subterranean termites which was not in the report!This is a very smooth and pleased service! and every task was completed with a very high standard.I Highly recommended Termite Biz for fumigation and termite treatment.

We had a major infestation of subterranean termites in our basement and crawlspace. Based on reviews, we called Termite Biz and scheduled an appointment with Nick. Nick arrived on time. I walked him through the problem areas in our basement, and discussed what I knew about the condition of the wood and the history of infestations. After that Nick did a compete inspection of the rest of the house, every square inch inside and outside, including in the attic. He found other problems that I hadn’t noticed: drywood termites in our stoop and in the clapboard siding.We discussed several options. I was more interested in long-term prevention, so Nick recommended treating the wood in the basement and attic with Bora Care. It remains in the wood forever. In addition they would spray along the exterior perimeter to discourage new colonies of subterranean termites.The pricing was competitive, I liked working with Nick, and I wanted to go with a local company, so we decided to schedule the work.At the same time we were under contract to do repair in the basement, pouring new concrete and putting up shear paneling along our 4′ cripple wall. We needed the termite work to be done after the cement was poured and cured, but before the shear wall was installed. That left just one or two days. Nick was fine with that, and scheduled the work when it was convenient for us.Nick and his partner arrived at the schedule time, suited up, and went to work. I was unable to remove some of the shelving that would have been in their way, they were happy to help me with that before getting started.Bora Care was sprayed directly onto all exposed wood surfaces; in areas where the studs were covered, they made small holes, injected foaming Bora Care, and then patched the holes.All in all a great experience, and very much worth the peace of mind knowing that we have greatly reduced our vulnerability to termites.I highly recommend Termite Biz!

I found them on Nextdoor when looking for recommendation. I’m very happy with the experience. I want to give a shoutout to Michael. He showed up on time, very friendly and professional. He explained everything along the way and answered all the questions I had. I like that he’s also very respectful of my home by having his shoe cover on when inside my house. He was very thorough with inspection checking every corner. I like that he didn’t pressure me into buying anything, and honest enough to say the inspection is clean and I’m good for now.

Marvin and his team did a great job. The job took about 3 hours and was done correctly! They treated for subterranean termites and dry wood termites. The warranty is great for this company and am looking forward to recommending them to anyone that has termites. Heads up, marvin gives a cash discount for those that are looking for an awesome deal with quality work for a reasonable and affordable price. Very happy with their service.

From the first phone call, susequent emails and completing today’s termite work Termite Biz has been outstanding. Termite Biz was prompt in getting back to me to answer some initial questions about their company, techniques and warranties. After having responded respectfully to all my questions I scheduled an inspection. Arranging for an inspection was quick and simple. Nick came out and did a thorough inspection, even crawling into the attic with his special suit and air mask. He took about 45 minutes walking around our place identifying areas where termites were (ones I didn’t even notice). Later that day after the inspection Nick emailed a detailed quote about the work that would be entailed and the cost. After that initial inspection I had many questions about the procedure and peppered Marvin (the owner) and Nick with. Each time Marvin was prompt at replying to all my emails and proved very helpful. Today I had Termite Biz scheduled to come to the house to do the work. Nick was running behind scheduled and called us letting us know he might be a little late. He wound up only being 7 minutes late. This impresses me that promptness and keeping customers informed is a hallmark of their business. Nick and Darryl spent about 3 hours at our home treating all the areas and did a thorough job. They were quiet, respectful and efficient. They warranty their work for two (2) years and have been very, very impressed with their business ethics, conscientiousness and high level of service. Time will tell on the termites, but up to this point I’m been extremely satisfied with their service. They are a family business (everyone seems to be related) and I would highly recommend them.

Agree with all the other 5 star comments! On time arrival, thorough inspection and treatment, friendly and knowledgeable (thanks Daryl and Mike!).This is the second time my house needed termite treatment in the past year. I didn’t contact the first company again even though the warranty is still in effect because I was not confident they will eliminate the problem at its root (main reason is because the inspector only looked at areas I pointed out and I am not the expert here). I decided to find another company and a friend recommended Termite Biz. Getting an appointment was easy, all done via email and quickly. Observing how Daryl and Mike did their inspection vs. the other company, I now know the first inspection missed a lot! Not only did they checked the entire house Daryl even went up to the roof, which is difficult to access, to complete the inspection. Every infested area found this second time should have been discovered the first time as the infestation was in the same area (entire back of the house). Mike educated me on how to spot problems as he was doing his inspection. You just have to ask.At the very least Daryl and Mike gave me confidence that I won’t be dealing with termite problems for long. Termite Biz also has a 2 year warranty but what stood out to me is they will do another inspection at the end of the 2 year period, which was not offered by the other company. So not only do I appreciate their work ethics and professionalism, I like the follow up, too. One less thing to worry about!

Termite Biz was our second opinion for my elder parents house, so glad we call them not only did we save money but also learned there’s a different option to treat termites.Mike was very thorough doing the inspection and explaining every detail and most of all he was respectful to their home and to my elder parents.Mike and his team showed up on time and finished the job on time. Mike, Thank you so much for your service and your kindness.I highly recommend them. I would give them more stars.Marvin is fabulous too.
