Termites will leave the colony and forage in every direction including up. Mature colony's s will often produce swarmers, winged termites that look like flying ants. This usually happens in March or April. These swarms may involve hundreds or even thousands of insects. If you witness a swarm you definitely have termites. But, if you don't see a swarm that does not mean you doesn't have termites. Colonies don't swarm every year, and young colonies don't swarm at all.
We Offer Treatment, Pre-Treatment, and Repairs
Pre Construction Termite Treatment
Treating termites while your new home is being built can help you defend against possible problems in the future. Some new construction specifications require protection for termite.
This treatment typically involves digging a trench around the perimeter of the foundation and then applying a chemical to the soil in the trench as it is back filled. This creates a powerful chemical barrier to keep subterranean termites from getting to the house from under the soil.
Post Construction Termite Treatment
