Termites

Termite Identification Guide Across the Mid West and East Coast

What are Termites?

Most species of subterranean termites are native to North America and are the most widespread of the species living across the United States. Each year subterranean termites are responsible for much of the termite damage caused. Termites feed on cellulose in wood and other plant materials.

An infestation of these wood-eating pests is hard to identify. Termites nest under the ground and spend their time in the wood they are feeding on. Termites can feed on and cause damage to a home or other structure for months or years without notice.

Termites feed on cellulose in wood and other plant matter, preferring decaying or water-damaged wood. The members of a subterranean termite colony divide their members into different groups or “castes.” Workers, soldiers, and reproductives (kings and queens) make up a termite colony, and all work together to ensure its success.

Are Termites Dangerous?

The damage termites can cause, and the cost of those repairs makes termites dangerous pests. Most home and business insurance policies don’t cover termite damage, so repairing the damage is completely left up to the home or business owner.

While termites damage our structures, when living outside in forested areas they are an important part of the Eco-system. Termites help break down decaying trees and plant matter, putting nutrients back into the earth, encouraging new plant growth.

Where Will I Find Termites in AL, GA, FL, KY, MA, TN, or TX?

Once termites move inside a home, they typically travel through the concrete foundation and into wood floor joists, eventually making their way into structural wood located behind walls and under floors. Termites also invade wood framing around windows and doors. As an infestation develops, termites move up the walls and eventually begin feeding on beams located above ceilings. Termites are most attracted to wood damaged by water.

Termites can also cause damage to wooden structures located outside in our yards as well. Wooden play structures, wooden furniture, wood fences, and trees are potential feeding grounds for termites.
