Just Because Summer Is Leaving, Doesn’t Mean The Termites Do

Termites are often seen in the reproductive (Swarming Termite) form. These typically have black bodies and milky white wings and are mistaken for a flying ant.  The member of the termite colony that can cause thousands of dollars of damage to homes is called the worker termite. Worker termites are white with no wings and can be found inside wood or within termite tubes.

No termites? Being in a high-risk area for termite infestation it may be only a matter of time. Here are a few ways to slow or stop that infestation. Remove firewood from up against your home. Control moisture around your foundation by installing gutters. Control moisture under your home (ask us how!). Remove any wooden debris from under your home. Have your home inspected at least one time per year.
