Termite Frass – A Sign Of Termites Anyone Can Identify

Posted: October 16, 2018 at 9:48 am

This offers them some natural concealment and protection from animals that would eat them up if found in plain sight. All of this makes it quite difficult to spot termites unless you really know what you are looking for.

Thankfully termites like good housekeeping within their colonies. Why is this good news to us? Well, they will sometimes eat a hole through the outside of the wood to push out their pile of fecal pellets which is often the only visual sign that you may lead you to notice their presence.

If you find anything that resembles pellets of wood-like material you should compare it to the photos and videos in this article. Termite frass is usually a sign of drywood termite infestation.

If they are pooping then they are eating and you should either do an initial inspection yourself or hire a professional to assess how far they have gone, what damage has been done, and what next steps should be taken in terms of treatment. And dont worry, most pest control professionals will perform an inspection for free with no strings attached. If you find one that does not offer a free termite inspection I would steer clear of them.

Here are some additional signs of termites that you should look out for. If you find two or more signs then the chances that you have an infestation are much greater. Discarded termite wings are another often overlooked clue of termite presence. When termites reach an adult stage they grow wings and eventually shed them. When the termites are in their flying stage of adulthood they are often referred to as swarmers. After the swarmers land in their intended destination, they shed their wings. If their intended destination was somewhere within your home or structure then those wings should be visible somewhere.

Of course, these wings are small but if you know what you are looking for it is possible to detect them. They will be found in pairs of identical wings. Check on wooden floors, window sills, and spider webs in your house. If you have found frass and wings in an area you can do a quick test with a screwdriver to get a general idea if you have a problem area.

Take the end of the screwdriver (Phillips or standard) and tap along the wood around the area the wings or dropping were found. If the termites are inside the wood and have been eating away the cellulose for a considerable amount of time there will be a hollow type of noise when you tap over the previously infested areas.

This sound will sound different from the sound of solid wood being tapped on. Again this is only a quick field test but when accompanied with other signs of termites, it is probably time to get a professional inspection done to assess the damage and then recommend treatment options.

Subterranean termites invade homes from soil around and beneath structures. When structural wood is in contact with soil and termites detect this wood, they begin to feed. Cracks and seams in foundations and siding, hollow blocks, masonry, and rock foundations also allow access points to subterranean termites. These termites must maintain contact with soil in order to retain enough moisture to remain alive. They bring a feces/soil mixture into their wood burrows to keep the moisture where they feed, and the colonies exist in the soil.

Subterranean termites can be difficult to detect, because they will stay in infested wood as they avoid outside contact. They feed very slowly and it can take several months and even years for damage to become significant. It can be difficult to detect subterranean termite damage, because from the outside, damaged wood can look perfectly intact. They prefer soft grain of the wood and in severe infestations only the hard grain may remain. Here are some ways to check for subterranean termite infestations and some telltale signs:

The best defense against termites is to treat the soil and foundation during construction of a new home. However, many of us arent thinking of termites when building, so treating existing homes is usually the case. Subterranean termite treatment cost can be very high if you hire a professional company, and choosing to treat them yourself can save you money and stress. If you choose to treat your termite infestation yourself, there are two options: soil and foundation treatments and baiting treatments. After reading the following information, please refer to our termite treatment guide, which can help you learn how to get rid of subterranean termites. Treatment for subterranean termites and Formosan termites is the same.

Soil treatments eliminate current infestations and prevent new ones. Treating the soil near probable access points exposes termites traveling from soil to toxin, which spreads to nest mates. The great thing about these liquid termicide treatments is the long lasting nature of the chemicals. Under normal conditions these treatments can last from 5 to 8 years. However, using this kind of treatment can be labor intensive and you must be prepared to start and finish the treatment. Our experts recommend:

Bait treatments can be very effective but are a little slower to go into effect. The traps are full of a toxic food source, so these bait traps only affect the termites that eat this bait and whatever termites they share the food with. It can take a while for the termites to notice and start feeding on the baits, and the bait toxin is slower acting than liquid soil treatments and there is no residual protection once the traps are gone. However, these baits eliminate the need for drilling holes into your foundation, use less insecticides than liquid treatments, and allow the occupants to stay home during the application, and is easier for a home-owner to implement.

1) If you hear noises in the roof, do not delay investigating. Rats do like to gnaw on electrical wires and have being known to cause fires. If you wash your house with a light solution of Chlorine it will remove the pheromone tracks from the rats making it less likely for a rat re-infestation.

4) If you go on holiday, please check your hotel room for bed bugs before you stay in the room. If found ask to move to another room if not change hotels. Unpack your luggage outside when you arrive home and never store your luggage in the bedroom.

5) If you haven’t had a termite inspection for a while, it is strongly recommended to get one at least once a year.

Run down to Bunnings and pick up a couple of bags of the smelliest dynamic lifter you can find and spread it evenly over your lawn and gardens and sometimes if you are lucky the smell sends them next door. They all have very sensitive noses. Rake up all the leaves starting July to November so the male bush turkey has nothing to make nest.

7) If you find termites in the garden or house, ring a termite control expert promptly. Termites cause considerable damage and too serious. Do not spray termites leave them alone until a professional can evaluate them otherwise it might take a lot longer to exterminate them and cost you considerably more.

8) If you find bees or wasps in the garden or house, don’t delay ring Micropest promptly. Bees and wasps are dangerous and should be treated by trained professionals.

Micropest provides the following services with an approximate price. For all domestic and commercial pest control, please don’t hesitate to ring because we do have specials from time to time and we are flexible.

The head technician for Micropest is Gerard; he has over thirty two years in the pest industry. Ten years in South Australia and twenty two in Sydney.

A very important and significant difference between the licensing today and licensing thirty two years ago is that to get a full pest licence it used to take three years to complete. Today you can buy a franchise and a trainer can give you a licence within seven days.

When I started, I had to study at TAFE and spend the allocated time being trained by someone with a full licence which was three years. I was very fortunate as the person who trained me was in his late sixties and had been in the industry for over forty years. He was the number one trouble shooter for Flick Adelaide for ten years. I learnt a lot more than most, but he did treat me like an apprentice and a general dogs body.

When you first start with the pest industry, you go through the motions. You don’t think too much about what you are doing. But like a fine wine a good pest controller after five or so years starts to think about why and where they are spraying. After spending ten years in the pest industry you’re expert, and you can do it in your sleep. Thirty one years in the industry, and you’re at the top of the food chain.

It is very rare to have a pest tech come to your house, with over thirty two years of experience. When you telephone Micropest pest control Sydney, you will get an operator who has been in the industry for over thirty one years carry out your pest control service.

In a nut shell the main fundamental difference between pest control in the past and current pest control methods is all about repellent and non repellent chemicals. When I first started in the industry thirty two years ago all the pest treatments we used were very cheap, toxic, environmentally unfriendly, smelly, messy, repellent and just outright dangerous. Some even believed to be carcinogenic. The attitude was stronger the chemical and the more chemical applied the better. Customers used to complain if there was not enough toxic smell or swimming pools of chemical left on the floors.

The current modern quality pest control treatments are little or low odour, non repellent, low toxicity, expensive, stainless and most environmentally friendly. Environmentally friendly in the sense that they don’t stay in the environment for a long period of time. Unfortunately the majority of effective pest control treatments have an element of toxicity but in increments relative to the target pest and not to baby’s and pets. Treatments are applied more strategically reducing the amount of volume. Today if the pest treatment applied smells the customer complains. But be warned there are many cowboys out there that will use highly toxic cheap chemical, just to save a few dollars.

Pest Control Sydney company Micropest Pty Ltd will endeavour to assist you in the best and most helpful way and will always treat the customer with respect honestly and ethically.

Life With No Males? These Termites Show That Its Possible …

Posted: October 5, 2018 at 4:44 am

Termites are often dismissed as nothing but home-destroying pests, less charismatic than bees, ants or even spiders.

In fact, termites have been doing incredible things since the time of dinosaurs, maintaining complex societies with divisions of labor, farming fungus and building cathedrals that circulate air the way human lungs do.

Now, add overthrowing the patriarchy to that list.

In a study published this week in BMC Biology, scientists reported the first discovery of all-female termite societies. Among more than 4,200 termites collected from coastal sites in southern Japan, the researchers did not find a single male.

Toshihisa Yashiro, a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Sydney and lead author of the paper, said in an email that he was utterly surprised by the discovery: I got a headache, because we believed that having both males and females is the rule in termite societies.

The complete loss of males is rare across the animal kingdom, especially in animals with advanced societies. All-female lineages have previously been documented in a few ant and honey bee species, but their colonies are already dominated by queens and female workers.

[Like the Science Times page on Facebook. | Sign up for the Science Times newsletter.]

Termites, in contrast, are known for having colonies in which males and females both participate in social activities. Dr. Yashiros research is the first, in other words, to demonstrate that males can be discarded from advanced societies in which they once played an active role.

His team collected 74 mature colonies of Glyptotermes nakajimai, a termite that nests in drywood, from 15 sites in Japan. Thirty-seven of the colonies were asexual and exclusively female, while the rest were mixed-sex. Egg-laying queens in asexual colonies stored no sperm in their reproductive organs and laid unfertilized eggs.

Genetic analyses suggested that the asexual termites evolved from ancestors that split from other G. nakajimai around 14 million years ago. The asexual termites have an extra chromosome compared with the sexual ones, suggesting the two groups may now be diverging into different species, said Nathan Lo, an evolutionary biology professor also at the University of Sydney.

Tanya Dapkey, an entomologist at the University of Pennsylvania, said that there was much to learn from successful societies in nature run without any input from males.

Edward Vargo, an entomology professor at Texas A&M University who was not involved in the study, added that determining how and why certain colonies evolved asexuality might yield insight on the big question of what is the purpose of sex and sexual reproduction.

Dr. Yashiro has a few hypotheses. To start, sexual populations of G. nakajimai do occasionally produce offspring from unfertilized eggs, which perhaps pre-adapted them to get along fine without males, he said.

Also, sexual reproduction introduces new genetic variation within a species. But the asexual termites, which are found in remote, coastal areas, might not have needed that trait to fight off parasites and pathogens. And asexuality would have been an efficient way to expand asexual populations are known to grow at twice the rate of sexual ones.

Crucial to this transition may have been a willingness, by termite queens, to cooperate when establishing colonies. In most asexual colonies the researchers studied, multiple queens, as many as 25, were found.

Furthermore, the scientists noticed that asexual colonies had fewer soldiers than sexual ones. The all-female soldiers in asexual colonies were more uniform in the size of their heads, which they use to block enemies from invading their nests. Its possible that asexual soldiers are more efficient at defense, Dr. Yashiro said.

At the end of our interview, I asked Dr. Yashiro if he had last thoughts to share. He declared, simply: For asexual Glyptotermes nakajimai, the future is female!

Termite Exterminator- Termite Inspections & Removal

Termite Exterminator

Termites are among the most destructive pests that can affect your home. They consume massive amounts of wood, and most of the time, you wont notice the damage until very costly repairs are needed. Termite infestation is usually hidden and not easily recognized. This is why its crucial that you contact a termite inspector and exterminator right away to start a control program.

Professional inspectors will conduct a thorough inspection and identify the exact species of termite present. Termite exterminators have the necessary equipment, training, and experience to deal with termites much better than you would do yourself. A good termite exterminator recommends a control method to keep termites away from your property and to prevent any further damage.

Warning Signs of a Termite Infestation

It is not easy to detect a termite infestation early. However, these are some signs to look out for:

Mud Tubes: Termite mud tubes are made of soil and constructed on wood. These mud tubes connect termite nests and with their food sources. Look for mud tubes on the ceiling, the base of the stairs, tree trunks, and the porch.

Cracks in Wood: Cracks in wood may be a sign of termite infestation. While not all cracks on wooden structures and objects indicate termite infestation, they are a possible sign of an infestation that can quickly damage your home.

Termite Droppings: Look out for termite droppings, which look similar to sawdust, that might be collecting on the floor.

Holes and Hollow Wood: Termites drill nail-sized holes through wood. When you tap on the wood, do you hear a hollow sound? This indicates termite damage inside the wood.

Discarded Wings: Wings from swarming insects and other signs of winged insects in the area can be a warning sign of termite infestation.

Termite Inspection and Removal

Homes located in moist climates, particularly those in snowy places, are prone to termite infestation. Once termites invade your property, they can inflict a lot of damage. The National Pest Management Association encourages prospective home buyers to learn more about termite infestation before buying a home.

Termites are a major threat and can cause extensive damage to your home if not detected early. If they infest your home for a long time without being noticed, the damage can be irreparable. One particular species, Sarmons termites, may be especially difficult to detect due to their size and ability to hide in wood.

Contact a termite exterminator to inspect your property for possible infestation. Professionals are trained to detect both past and present infestations. They evaluate all possible conditions that may attract future infestation and advise you accordingly.

Liquid treatment, known as termiticide, is most commonly used for termite removal. It is poured under the foundation and around infested areas to kill termites.

Another method is eco-friendly bait treatment, which is more environmentally friendly than termiticide. Wood stakes are placed around your property to attract termites to the poisonous chemical. Because the poison is slow acting, the termites carry it back to their colonies. Finally, borate wood treatment can be used as a preventive measure for controlling termites.

Termite Exterminator Termite Inspections & Removal

Termites are extremely destructive insects. They chew through wood, cardboard, furniture, and anything made from wood or paper material. The presence of these colony-dwelling insects can really give you some sleepless nights. Whether your home is infested with dry-wood termites or subterranean termites, you need a termite exterminator to detect and remove the pests right away.

Termite Exterminator

You might be tempted to try using chemicals and natural remedies to remove the pests on your own, but special training and use of equipment are necessary to fully remove them. Unlike other pests that can be exterminated using easily available chemicals or natural products, termites require a trained and experienced termite exterminator for removal.

A professional termite technician performs a thorough, expert termite inspection to determine the best termite removal method for your particular infestation. Be careful when finding a termite exterminator, as youll come across many individuals and companies advertising their services and not all of them provide the highest quality work.

Ask for valid certifications and licenses to evaluate a technicians expertise. Good referrals from your family and friends can help you find trustworthy and experienced pest control professionals.

5 Warning Signs of a Termite Infestation

Termite infestations can go unnoticed until well established. Pest control professionals are trained to detect the early stages of an infestation. It is, therefore, imperative to get a termite inspection done on your home both before purchasing and on a regular schedule after. You should also regularly inspect your home to look out for signs of the presence of a termite colony. These signs include:

Visible Termite Tubes or Subterranean Tunnels Termites build soil tubes at night to protect themselves from dehydrating or predator attacks. If you spot these tubes on walls and foundations, seek termite removal services.

Blowholes in Plants Are there visible holes on your plants, especially trees? Termites, especially the subterranean type, form colonies on trees. A hollow sounding stud in wood is also a warning sign for the need of termite inspection and removal.

Accumulated Earthen Packing Earthen packing on foundations, surfaces, walls or near joints indicate your home could be under termite attack. Call for an immediate pest inspection, as termites can destroy your home with alarming speed.

Audible Termite Noises Termites make noises as they excavate wooden materials. These noises indicate an already well-established infestation and the need to take action.

Presence of Termite Wings Termite wings easily detach from their bodies. If you spot wings on basements, along foundations, or near your furniture, thats a sign of termite infestation, which calls for immediate inspection and treatment.

Termite Inspection & Removal

In order to fully rid your home of termites, you need the services of a pest control company specializing in termite removal. A termite technician can inspect the situation to figure out the kind of termite on your premises. Inspection results determine the kind of treatment most effective for removal of termites in your home.

Depending on the kind of termite and extent of attack, a pest control professional can choose any of the following removal techniques to eliminate termites from your home:

Liquid Treatment Liquid containing a chemical poison is applied to termite infested areas to kill them. It might also be spread around the area surrounding your home to prevent future attacks.

Bait Treatment This is the best method to use for eliminating an entire termite colony. The bait is in the form of wood and acts to attract termites to a slow-killing chemical. The termites carry the poison back to the nest, killing the entire colony.

Termites are extremely destructive, which means you must take preventive measures to protect your home from attack. Keep your home dry, and store wood on raised ground away from your house.

Treat wood with an anti-termite chemical to protect your home from these destructive insects. Insurance companies do not cover termite damage. Therefore, you should conduct regular termite inspection tests and budget for termite inspection and removal services prior to buying a home.

Termite Exterminator- Termite Inspections & Removal

Termite Exterminator

The havoc and damage termites can wreak on your property can be tremendous. A single termite colony might have over 2 million active insects. Recent research findings indicate that termites cause $5 million in property damage in the US every year. Alarmingly, termite activity and damage can continue for years without detection, as the visible wood remains intact while the inside is being destroyed.

Hire a professional termite exterminator to regularly inspect your property to guard against these pests. Termite exterminators specialize in dealing with termites. After inspecting your property to assess any recent or past infestation, they track the termites to their source, pinpointing the colony, then get rid of them for good. They can also offer repair services for damage caused by a termite infestations.

Warning Signs of a Termite Infestation

Termites can cause a lot of damage that is expensive to repair. Therefore, it is important to be proactive in looking out for signs of infestation. Periodic professional termite inspection is highly recommended. Here are the signs to look out for:

Hollow Wood: Check your walls and floor for wood damage. Termites feed on wood, leaving behind long grooves as they search for cellulose. Over time, the wood undergoes structural damage, resulting in fine debris on the floor or walls.

Tap on the wood in your house to identify hollow wood. If its hollow, youll hear a sound like an empty cup or pitcher.

Pencil-Sized Mud Tubes: Mud tubes can be found around trees, sheds, or where the ground meets your structure. Subterranean termites that nest underground and move upwards for food sources are often responsible for making mud tubes.

The tubes maintain the temperature termites need to survive, blocking cool or dry air to provide the necessary environment for termites to thrive.

Wood Flooring Blisters: Subterranean termites can feed on your wood flooring. If you notice what looks like water damage on your wood flooring, it might be the work of termites that have infested your home.

Termite Exterminator Termite Inspections and Removal

When it comes to commercial property or homes, no one wants to hear of termite infestation. If left untreated, the pests become a serious issue. The pests cause costly damage to properties, averaging over $5 billion worth a year. Homeowners insurance usually doesnt cover termite infestations. Since the magnitude of damage termites cause cannot be determined immediately, it is important to put measures in place at each stage of homeownership.

Termites are attracted to wooden structures and other wooden objects. Although different types of termites exist, the most common is the subterranean species. Each species consists of a hierarchy that includes worker termites, soldier termites, and swarmer termites.

Termite Exterminator

Termite prevention and elimination is not easy. If termites infest your home, you will need termite exterminator services to get rid of them. A professional termite removal technician is required to go through an annual training certification for continued advancement, and an intensive monthly training then occurs every month. Before you engage a professional technician to work in your home, request a professional background screen.

Warning Signs of Termite Infestation

Termites are hard to detect, meaning they can go unnoticed for a long time and cause a ton of damage. It is often hard to see or hear them. Therefore, it requires someone trained in pest control to look for signs of an infestation. The following are some warning signs of termite infestation:

If you spot a temporary swam of winged insects flying around your property or emerging from the soil, you could have an infestation. Other signs include wood that gives a hollow sound when tapped and discarded wings from swarmers.

Termite mud tubes are thin tunnels found around a termite nest. Termites build them from pieces of wood and soil to form long mounds. If you want to know whether the termites are still in the tube, break it open. Termites are bound to pass through the tunnel if they are still in your home.

An increasing presence of termite frass (wood shavings or droppings) could indicate the presence of an infestation. Termites ruin wood, leaving it looking like it is water damaged. Wood might appear rippled, buckled, and swollen. You might also see mazes visible throughout the wood, another sign you have a termite infestation.

Termite Inspection and removal

Termites first target moisture-damaged homes, especially those experiencing ice, snow, and rain during the winter. Home buyers are encouraged to get a termite inspection when they are going through the home buying process. It should then be done every 1 to 3 years.

Termite inspectors are trained and skilled in recognizing signs of current or past infestation. They also check for conditions in your home that might attract termites in the future.

If termites are found, professionals perform a complete termite removal. Termite removal specialists get rid of termites using the Integrated Pest Management (IPM) approach, a method using monitoring and bait stations, soil treatments, and barrier protection.
