Americans spend an estimated $5 billion a year on termite damage repair and control, and in North Carolina, subterranean termites are the main perpetrators of this costly damage.
Termites are small insects that like to stay hidden in your walls, floors, and foundation. While they do occasionally make themselves visible through swarming, by the time a colony is large and established enough to exhibit swarming behavior, they’ve likely already done a significant amount of damage.
The earlier you spot a termite infestation, the easier it is to exterminate it and the less damage you’ll have to deal with. Learn to spot the more subtle signs that a termite colony has made itself at home, and call our team right away to evict them ASAP.
Watch out for warning signs like these:
- Small holes in drywall
- Discolored, drooping walls or peeling wallpaper
- Loose tiles
- Crumbling or visibly damaged wood structures
- Wood structures that sound hollow when tapped or knocked on
- Uneven or bubbling paint
- Strange, maze-like patterns carved into your furniture, floorboards, or walls
- Squeakier-than-usual floorboards
- Mounds of what looks like salt or pepper, but are actually termite pellets
- Shed wings that resemble fish scales
- Mud tubes in your foundation
What Do Termites Look Like?
- White, dark brown, or black in color
- Workers and soldiers are between ⅛ and ⅜ of an inch in length
- Thick waist with a straight antenna
- Sometimes winged
Damage Termites Cause
Subterranean termite colonies can eat up to five grams of wood each day, which is equal to around 2.5 feet of wood each year. Over a period of years, this can lead to serious structural damage and even collapse, and due to termites' unfortunate ability to destroy wood quietly, infestations can go on for years without being noticed.
How You Could Be Attracting Termites
- Moisture and humidity are caused by poor drainage, leaky pipes, or lack of airflow.
- Wood- such as bushes, firewood, or mulch is too close to home foundations.
- Cracks in house foundations, windows, or doors that act as an easy entry-point for termites.
What to Do If You Have Termites
Termites are not the sort of problem that you can take care of on your own. Proper treatment requires the handling and placement of baits and insecticides that are best left to our Charlotte termite control professionals.
With City Wide Exterminating, you have access to the two highest quality products on the market:
- Termidor (liquid)
- Sentricon (bait)
Less than 10% of pest control companies are certified to offer both liquid and bait products. City Wide is one of them. Our specialists will assess which treatment best suits your environment.
We guarantee to protect your home from termites, and are so confident in our services that should termites come back, we'll return to re-treat and repair any damage caused with our optional $1,000,000 damage guarantee.
It’s common knowledge that termites destroy your floors, walls, foundation, and furniture, but that’s not the only thing you have to worry about. Like other pests, termites can carry diseases into your home, and certain species can even bite or sting your loved ones.
Additionally, termite activity can increase the amount of moisture within your home and cause water damage, a complication that most people don’t expect.
Dangers associated with termite infestations include:
- Painful bites and stings
- Allergens like dust and wood pollen produced by their feeding habits and nests
- Increased risk of mold infestation
- Damage to floors, furniture, and doorframes
- Foundation damage
- Structural instability
- Water damage from increased moisture levels termites bring with them
