SUBTERRANEAN TERMITES AND HOW TO TREAT

Each species of termites have a different way of entering your home so different methods will be used for keeping them out, or getting rid of them once they’ve arrived. Subterranean termites are the most common which will require good treatment provider who can help with intervention and to get rid of them by keeping your house safe and secure.
Underground colonies is where Subterranean termites reside. They search for food to sustain the colony by spreading out into a tunnel system. They can enter a person’s home or other wooden structures on their property when the tunnels reach above ground. When the weather turns warm and there is heavy rainfall is when Subterranean termites often begin their infestation by sending out a swarm of winged termites. Termites with wings are reproductive. They can go out and produce new termites forming a new colony. They shed their wings and return to build new underground tunnels after they mate. Discovering “flying ants” with piles of wings on your windowsill with be a huge indication that there is an infestation that will require treatment.
There is an inground system that people rely on in order to get rid of Subterranean termites. It repels the termites before they arrive or lures the termites to poison which they take back to their colony before they can do any damage.
