Getting Rid of a Termite Infestation
No one wants to hear the word Termites when it comes to your home or commercial property. Termites can be a serious issue, especially if left unchecked for a long period of time. Unfortunately, termites thrive under homes, and in structural areas of a home where people rarely visit, leaving them to multiply and continue their destructive behavior for sometimes years. Many times homeowners become aware they have a potential termite issue when having an inspection completed on their home, or some other type of contracted work such as crawl space work, or some other structural job. Termite extermination and removal can be tricky as finding all colonies, correct treatment, and consistent follow-up are essential to ensuring these wood-destroying pests are removed for good. When it comes to termite infestations, many property owners will search for answers to common questions around these pests.

However because these pests have different life stages, appearances between these two species can vary widely.

During termite swarming season, queen termites fly off in search of building a new colony. Swarming is a sign that there’s a mature termite colony somewhere close to your home.
