The Subterranean Termite(Reticulitermes flavipes)
Subterranean termites are the most destructive insect pests in the United States. They cause financial and emotional damage when they demolish one of your most valuable possessions your home.
This destruction crew lives up to ten feet underground in a colony, where they number in the hundreds of thousands. One colony can forage for food in an area the size of a football field! Their primary food source includes dead trees and brush, but once they find your home, they notify the whole clan that theyve discovered fresh timber, making your home or business the perfect meal for a horde of termites.
Detecting an infestation of termites can be very apparent or a little tricky. If you have noticed dead termites or wing fragments in your home then you may have a problem. You also may have experienced a springtime swarm, where thousands of flying termites escape from your wall to produce another colony. Soon after they swarm, termites lose their wings and begin to mate. Further evidence to support your suspicions includes visible mud tubes or damaged wood inside or around your home. If you consistently find a little dirt or debris by a baseboard that somehow manages to reappear shortly after it is cleaned, then you could be dealing with a termite problem.
Any segment of wood that comes into contact with the soil is at high risk for termite entry. Damaged wood will produce a dull sound when gently tapped with a screwdriver or hammer. Dont storm around your property banging holes in the walls looking for an infestation. Instead, call your local Apex technician. Well discover the problem without damaging to your home.
We have the most advanced tools at our disposal. Not only do we know what to look for, but well do an thorough inspection by looking in your attic, under the crawl space of your house, and areas that are conducive to termite activity. We use moisture meters to detect unusual moisture in walls, Borescopes to look inside walls, and even FLIR-infrared cameras to see through your walls if necessary.
Apex takes expert care to unearth these subterranean pests. With one of our free same-day inspections, we will identify the problem and formulate a treatment plan, using state-of-the-art equipment, to permanently eradicate this horde of home wreckers.
The Drywood Termite(Cryptotermes cavifrons)
Unlike their subterranean cousins, drywood termites prefer to build their colonies in sound, dry wood above ground level. They are very secretive and prefer to remain hidden, except during periods when they swarm, generally in late August and early September, or when their nests are damaged due to structural repair work. Drywood termites enjoy intimate colonies of fewer than 1,000, and their colonies can be widely dispersed.
You may first detect the presence of drywood termites by noticing a strange amount of small termite carcasses littering your lighting fixtures, cobwebs or windowsills, or from the fecal pellets left near infested wood. The fecal pellet of a drywood termite is characteristicof this species. The pellets are the same color as the ingested wood and are generally 1/32 inch long. The pellets can be dislodged from the infested wood with a gentle tap.
Inspection of your wood structure will also identify an infestation. However, proper inspection requires experience and do-it-yourself treatments are not recommended. If you suspect you may have a drywood termite infestation, contact atechnician from Apex Pest today. We have the knowledge and experience to efficiently clear your house of drywood termites.
The Powderpost Beetle(family Bostrichidae, subfamily Lyctinae)
Termites arent the only wood-eating pests in town; powderpost beetles are also more than happy to destroy your home. Depending on the species, the powderpost beetle can attack hardwoods such as flooring and trim or softwoods like wall framing. Either way, they are not a welcome visitor. These invasive beetles may not be readily apparent, but if you start to see small holes in your wood, it may be time to have an inspection done.
For a thorough inspection of your wooden structures, contact Apex Pest Control today for a free same-day inspection. Our expertly trained technicians have the knowledge and experience to identify the problem and formulate the most efficient plan to guarantee a solution.
Formosan Termites(Coptotermes formosanus Shiraki)
The Formosan termite, so named because of its origins in Taiwan, is among the most widespread termite species in the United States, as well as one of the most economically critical ones. These destructive pests take up residence across more than one dozen southern states, with some of their heaviest concentrations in Florida. Formosan termites cost homeowners across the United States over $1 billion in treatment and repairs each year, making them some of the most devastating pests to have near your home.
An individual colony of Formosan termites can contain several millions of the insects spread across a wide area of property and burrowing up to 300 feet deep in the soil. When you consider that a colony of native subterranean termites can contain hundreds of thousands of insects, you may understand why they pose such a threat to Florida homeowners. The majority of the members of Formosan colonies are classified as workers, whose duty it is to obtain nutrients, often in the form of your homes foundation, and deliver them to colony mates. If they invade a home above the grounds surface, they can leave foraging tubes ranging from 0.25 inch to 0.5 inch in diameter, effectively destroying the structure from the inside out.
To determine if you have a Formosan termite infestation in your home, tap wood structures with a hard object. Doing so should produce a hollowed-out sound, rather than a thick, solid one. Other signs of a Formosan infestation include excrement nests, visible burrowing tunnels, and peeling, blistered wood surfaces.
