I live on the 17th floor. Is my home safe from Termites?

No home is termite safe. They enter homes from building foundation and hence cause damage to walls and wooden structures. Termites eat furniture, papers, books, and even documents kept in lockers and safe causing colossal damage within few months. Homes with water seepage and dampness are more prone to termite attack. Termite workers storm our property in millions and they work 24 x 7. HICAREs professional termite control will completely kill even the last termite present; within fifteen days your property will be termite-free.

Termites need moisture for their survival, hence damp walls, leakage and water seepage are like an open invitation for them.

Always invest in a preventive termite treatment to protect your valuables, because being safe is always better than being sorry! While shifting into a new house or apartment get a professional termite inspection and invest into a preventive termite control service. While looking for houses on rent ensure to get a termite inspection to safe guard your furniture and other valuables. Old furniture is prone to termite attack so its good to get an expert termite inspection.

Termites feed on cellulose found in wood, paper & cotton in forests.As forests disappear, termites are entering our homes from the soil through walls to eat furniture, structural wood, paper, books, currency notes and even valuable documents kept in safe and lockers.If your society and building does an unprofessional termite control or anti termite treatment at foundation level, chances are you will get termite at home.Homes with water seepage and dampness are more prone to termite attack. Book collections and libraries at homes attract termites. They are so swift and quiet that the damage is done before you even know of their presence.Hence termite inspection should be done every few months. Termites usually build multiple colonies. So even if you have found one and have managed to eradicate it, there is a good chance they are already busy destroying some other part of your home.

Termites feed on the cellulose found in wood, paper, cotton and on trees in the forest. As forests disappear they invade our homes, from the soil through the walls to feast on our books, papers and furniture. Even currency notes and valuable documents in safe are not free from them.

An average 2BHK home will take approximately 2 hours for treatment and home dcor is not affected as we seal the holes perfectly.

What Do Termites Look Like? Signs of Termite Damage

Posted: June 2, 2018 at 8:41 am

Termites have been munching away on wood for more than250 million years, long before people started building their homes from trees. Termites recycle wood products intothe soilby feeding on and breaking down cellulose, the main component of the cell walls in plants. Most of the 2,200 or so species of termites live in the tropics.

Most termite damage is caused by subterranean (underground) termites, members of the family Rhinotermitidae. Subterranean termite nests usually contact the soil, thus the name subterranean. Among these ground-dwelling termites, the most common structural pests are the eastern, western, and Formosan subterranean termites. They will eat your framing starting at the bottom of the house and like softwoods.

Other termites that cause structural damage include thedrywoodtermites (family Kalotermitidae) and thedampwoodtermites (family Termopsidae). Drywood termites enter at the roofline and damp wood termites like basements and bathrooms or where water leaks occur.

If you suspect you have a termite problem, your first step is to confirm that the pests are, indeed, termites. Some people mistake termites for ants.So what do termites look like?

Winged ants look quite similar to termites; as a result, quite a few people confuse the two. This is especially the case when comparing winged ants to termites. Here’s how to tell them apart:

Because termites eat wood from the inside out, you probably won’t find them until your home is infested, and you’re more likely to see signs of damage than the bugs themselves. Look for:

If you find signs of termites, you can treat the infestation yourself or call local pest control professionals.If you choose to do it yourself, you’ll need to first find the location where they have been eating (the “termite gallery”) and attack the site, applying the insecticide. Outside you will place baiting stations or treat soil to kill the remaining insects, as done in the prevention section below.

Methods of prevention include digging a trench and spraying an insecticide into the ground to repel them or a “nonrepellant” barrier that they bring back to their nest to kill the rest. It’s a labor-intensive process but can last for five to 10 years if left undisturbed.

Bait stations aren’t labor intensive but must be checked every few months. They need to be dug down 8 to 10 inches and placed every 8 to 10 feet. First, they’re loaded with “prebait” and then, after the activity is detected, the actual poisonous bait.

If you live in areas where termite infestations are common, it’s important to inspect your home (or have it inspected by a professional) regularly for possible termite infestations. Catching termites early can save you costly home repairs.

Eastern Subterranean Termites

The termites pictured here are soldiers of the native eastern subterranean termites. Swarmers of this species are about 3/8 inch long. Notice their rectangular-shaped heads, which can help you distinguish this species from other termites. Eastern subterranean termite soldiers also have powerful mandibles (the brown jaws protruding from their heads) with which they defend their colony.

Eastern subterranean termites live in moist, dark places. They feed on structural wood, eating out the middle of beams and leaving thin shells behind. As a result, it can be hard to see these termites; by the time many homeownersnotice an infestation, the damage has been done.

This Formosan subterranean termite soldier measures about 1/2 inch long. Itshead is darker and oval in shape; it has a rounded abdomen, a thick waist, straight antennae, and no eyes. Like the eastern subterranean soldiers, Formosan soldiers have powerful jaws to defend their colonies.

As one of the most destructive termite species in the United States, Formosan termites are a major concern. They can multiply and destroy wood structures faster than other native subterranean species. This is the case not because they actually eat faster than other termites, but because their nests are so big. In fact, Formosan termite nests can actually contain millions of termites.

Formosan termites were spread by marine commerceand now cause millions of dollars of structural damage in the southeastern United States, California, and Hawaii each year.

Drywood termites live in smaller colonies than their subterranean cousins. They nest and feed in dry, sound wood, making them a significant pest of wood-frame homes. Many species of drywoodtermites live in the southern half of the United States, with a range extending from California to North Carolina and southward. Most are 1/4 to 3/8 inches long.

One way to distinguish drywood termites from subterranean termites is to examine their waste. Drywood termites produce dry fecal pellets which they expel from their nests through small holes in the wood. Look for accumulations of these dry fecal pellets. Subterranean termite feces is a liquid, by comparison.

Like most termites, drywood termites eat structural wood from the inside out, leaving a brittle shell. Unlike some other types of termites, however, they don’t need access to damp conditions.

The reproductive termites, called alates, look quite different from workers or soldiers. Reproductives have one pair of wings of almost equal length, which lie flat against the termite’s back when it is at rest. Their bodies are darker in color than soldiers or workers, and alates do have functional compound eyes.

You can still distinguish reproductive termites from reproductive ants, which also have wings, by looking at their bodies. The termite alates still have the characteristic straight antennae, rounded abdomens, and thick waists. Ants, in contrast, have markedly elbowed antennae, prominent waists, and slightly pointed abdomens.

Eastern subterranean termites usually swarm during the daytime, between February and April. Winged queens and kings emerge en masse, ready to mate and start new colonies. Their bodies are dark brown or black. If you find groups of winged termites inside your home, you probably already have a termite infestation.

Formosian Winged Termites

Unlike native subterranean termites, which swarm during the day, Formosan termites typically swarm from dusk until midnight. They also swarm later in the season than most other termites, usually between April and June.

If you compare these Formosan alates to the eastern subterranean reproductives on the previous image, you’ll notice the Formosan termites are lighter in color. Their bodies are a yellowish-brown, and their wings have a smoky color to them. Formosan termites are also noticeably larger than our native termites.

The termite queen looks quite different from the workers or soldiers. She barely resembles an insect at all, with her expansive stomach full of eggs. Termite queens have a physogastric stomach, with a membrane that expands as her egg-laying capacity increases with age. Depending on the species of termite, the queen may lay hundreds or sometimes thousands of eggs per day. Termite queens live extraordinarily long lives; a lifespan of 15 to 30 years or more is not uncommon.

Termites can do extensive damage inside walls and floors without detection. It’s clear that termites have been feeding on this wall for quite some time. If you see sawdust at the base of a wall, it’s time to look inside.

Termites are known as “silent destroyers” because of their ability to chew through wood, flooring and even wallpaper undetected. There are about 2,000 known termite species in the world. Each year, termites cause more than $5 billion in property damage.

Find information ontermite controlat the official NPMA website.

Dampwood termites are normally larger in size than other termite species. Like drywood termites, dampwoodcoloniesdont have workers. Younger termites called “false workers” do all the work for the colony.

Dampwood termites like to feed on very moist wood.

Because they need lots of moisture, dampwood termites usually live in damp, dying wood or in houses with leaking plumbing that keeps the wood wet.

Dampwood termites do not carry disease and dont usually bother buildings because there is not enough water in the wood.

Drywood termites formcoloniesof up to 2,500 members. Drywood termite colonies dont have workers. Younger termites, called “false workers”, do all the work for the colony.

Drywood termites eat wood, wallpaper, plastics and fabric made from plants.

Drywood termite colonies are usually found in dry wood and they do not require moisture or contact with the soil.

Drywood termites can build nests and dig tunnels in buildings. These tunnels cause major damage because the wooden support beams can become weak and make the building lean or fall down.

Formosan termitecoloniescan be up to 300 feet long and there can be tens of thousands of termites in a single colony. Formosan termite colonies are divided into three groups: workers, soldiers andreproductives. They are the largest and most destructive kind of termite.

Formosan termites eat wood and fabric made from plants. When they eat dead trees, these termites help the environment and make space for new plant life.

Formosans live in huge underground colonies, and build mud nests inside the walls of a building. They can also live in boats and buildings.

Formosan termites eat a lot of wood and can damage your house.

Subterranean termitecoloniescan have up to 2 million members! Their colonies are divided into three groups: workers, soldiers andreproductives.

Termites eat wood, wallpaper, plastics and fabric made from plants.

Subterranean termites need contact with the soil to survive. They live in underground colonies or in wet areas aboveground. They build tunnels to reach food and every spring, groups of reproductive termites fly off to start new colonies.

Subterranean termites are the most destructive kind of termite. They can eat a lot of wood and they can cause a lot of expensive damage to a house! They can destroy building foundations, wooden support beams, plastic plumbing pipes, sub-flooring, insulation even swimming pool liners and filtration systems! Termites can also injure or destroy living trees and shrubs.

Slowing tax refunds aimed at cutting fraud :: WRAL.com

Posted: May 21, 2018 at 3:43 pm

Raleigh, N.C. Millions of people depend on their tax refund checks for everything from paying household bills to taking a vacation, but the federal government is putting a hold on some refunds this year in an effort to fight tax fraud.

The Internal Revenue Service is delaying tax refunds for more than 40 million low-income families who claim the Earned Income Tax Credit and the Additional Child Tax Credit. These tax breaks are geared to benefit the working poor, and many families claim both.

The tax filing season starts Jan. 23, but a new law requires the IRS to delay tax refunds for people claiming those two credits until Feb. 15 so the agency has more time to screen the returns. Early tax refunds often go out before they can be verified.

The IRS reports $15.6 billion in improper tax refunds in 2015 alone, and the two tax credits have long been known as targets for fraud.

Rocky Mount businessman Larry Hill, who billed himself as “The People’s Champ,” for example, made millions manipulating the Earned Income Tax Credit for filers by falsely reporting interest income, withholdings and dependents.

WRAL Investigates also reported on a Charlotte-based ring that used fake documents and tax IDs to obtain millions of dollars in bogus refunds, many of which were delivered long before the government could verify names or employers.

“They want to hand out these refunds so fast. Stop and investigate before you hand it out,” Nancy Dawkins, a local CPA, said in 2012.

Tax Guide

In addition to slowing refunds, the IRS will do more to share and compare taxpayer data with states and tax preparers. A new verification code will accompany millions of W2 forms.

Alexandra Sirota, director of the left-leaning North Carolina Budget and Tax Center, said that, although she supports efforts to reduce fraud and improper refund payments, the delays will hurt legitimate tax filers who count on their refunds.

“This is a huge impact on household budgets,” Sirota said. “It’s really the chance one chance in a year for low-income working families to catch up on bills, to make payments on things they need for their household, fixing the car, replacing a broken washer and dryer.”

Tax fraud prevention efforts are working for the IRS. Last year, new verification requirements helped reduce identity fraud cases by 50 percent.

Sirota said she worries many low-income tax filers will turn to costly bridge loans because of the refund delays.
