The structure itself can be severely damaged by these destructive insects which, in turn, can severely decrease your homes overall value. Termites generally prefer to feed on dead plant material, however, if termites enter your home, they will eat any type of wood, carpet, cloth or paper that the colony comes across.</p> <p>Termites are very small organisms that live underneath the surface of the ground. These subterranean organisms construct small structures that retain enough moisture to allow them to survive. When termites are in soil, they are usually harmless and will not affect your home. However, when they enter your home that is when the problems begin.</p> <p>Appearance wise, Termites are generally lighter in color than a typical house ant but they do share many similarities, though. Both flying ants and termites have wings and they both have distinct midsections, though termite&#8217;s bodies are broader in size. As for their antennae, ant antennae are shaped in an elbow-like bent position, while termite antennae can be curved or straight.</p> <p>Termites are not typically seen while they are infesting your home, but you may see swarms of them outside your home after it rains. This can be an indication of a large termite infestation.</p> <p><strong>Termite Facts</strong></p> <ul> <li>Termites have been around for over 250 million years.</li> <li>There are over 2500 termite species world wide and 50 different species are found in the US.</li> <li>Mature colonies can contain over 60,000 termites.</li> <li>Termites groom by licking each other.</li> <li>The termite Queen has secondary and tertiary reproductive’s to help lay eggs.</li> </ul> <p>Termites damage more homes every year than earthquakes and storms combined. Termites cause more than $5 billion in damage to U.S. homes each year. A small colony of approximately 60,000 termites can eat a linear foot of 2-by-4 in about five months. Subterranean termites are estimated to cause more than 90 percent of all damage in the United States. More than 5 million homes have some type of termite problem each year</p> <p>Termites cause billions of dollars in damage each year. They primarily feed on wood, but can also damage paper, books, insulation, and even swimming pool liners and filtration systems. Termites can injure living trees and shrubs, but more often invade of trees and plants already diseased and dying.</p> <p><strong>Are termites silently feasting on your largest investment? </strong></p> <p>While houses may become infested at any time, termites are of particular importance when buying or selling a home since a termite inspection/infestation report is normally a condition of sale.</p> <p>Your 1-800-PEST-CONTROL technician is a trained professional. Our technicians have the education, expertise and more sophisticated techniques which will assure that your termite problem will be managed in an effective and environmentally friendly manner.</p> <p>During our inspection your home or business will be examined from top to<br /> bottom, including interior, exterior, around windows and plumbing, in the attic,<br /> and in the basement or crawl space.
