Are Houston Termites Eating Your Home Right Now?

Pest Control Houston TX Termite Control

Swarming Termites Houston TX

Winged termites emerge from subterranean nests to mate and start new colonies.

Termites love Houston homes — Are they dining on yours?

Termites are sneaky little pests!  Right under your very nose they will grow their army of insects into the millions waiting for the perfect opportunity to make their way to your home.

Termites can enter a structure through a crack or crevice as small as 1/64th of an inch. Because of their elusive behavior and tiny size, termites will often be able to nibble away at any structure that contains wood (which means all types of structures) without anyone even noticing that they are present.

Pest control companies in Houston say that often by the time a homeowner detects the presence of a termite infestation; termites are typically well-established and have caused harm to the structure that they have infested.

The eastern subterranean termites can be found in the southern states, throughout the eastern parts of the United States, as well as the Midwest.  These formidable pests build their massive nests underground with mud tunnels that connect to above ground food sources.

Termites are responsible for most of the damage to structures throughout Houston, Texas as well as other areas in the nation.

Year around, but especially during spring and summer, Houston pest control experts advise homeowners to keep a watchful eye out for termite swarms and the presence of mud tubes around the home or business.

Ants can sometimes build simular looking tubes up foundations but their tubing on close inspection is grainy as opposed to the termite’s smooth surface. Also, ant tubing often falls apart easily while termite tubing is firm. Breaking the tubing will often reveal some insects.

Ants have defined segmented body parts – head, abdomen and thorax but a termite’s body is cigar shaped without the pinched waist. There are other differences in the antenaes and the winged members of reproductive ants verses termite alates. Termite pros can help with an accurate identification of the insects.

Pest control companies in Houston can help you avoid the wrath of these silent destroyers by providing annual inspections and providing preventive termite treatments to protect your home or business.

Our pest control technicians are well-versed in termite behavior and biology, and detecting termite entry points.  They will be able to properly identify the signs of termite activity and will be able to devise a specific plan for prevention and control.

Don’t let your largest investment be damaged by termites!
