Indianapolis Termite Control
Trio Pest Control Helps You Prevent Termite-Related Property Damage
Termites are one of the most destructive household pests that we have to contend with. Part of this is because termites, generally speaking, remain hidden, and we often don't realize we have a problem until they have already wrought extensive damage to our homes. However, there is hope. Our Greenwood termite control specialists can help you eradicate them from your property. Trio Pest Control is committed to our customers, and we are not happy until you are. We offer effective, affordable termite control services and a 90-day guarantee.
Signs of Termites
Typically, you will not see termites unless they are swarming. During this time, flying termites emerge looking for mates. Because of their size and shape, many people mistake these swarming termites for flying ants. However, if you see something like this, or if you see what looks like white ants (termites are light in color), you should contact Trio Pest Control right away as you likely have termites.
Signs of a termite infestation include:
Seeing mud tubes (how subterranean termites get around) -
Termites build subterranean tunnels called, "Mud tubes". These serve as bridges for the colonies to transport the wood they find. If you find one of these mud tubes, chances are you have termites.
Wood features and structures sound hollow when you tap on them -
Termites will usually consume wood from the inside out. When you tap on a wall and you hear a hollow noise or it even sounds papery this is a sign that termites have been actively eating the wood from the inside of the wall.
Discarded Wings -
Termite infestations can take place either inside or outside of the home. After the swarmers take flight, they quickly shed their wings. If you notice piles of these wings on window sills or around your home foundation, this is an indicator that you may have termites.
The most common and the most destructive kind of termite is the subterranean termite. This is the termite that you are most likely to encounter in your home. They live in vast colonies, some of which can reach up to one million members. As their name implies, they build their colonies underground in the soil, and they typically gain access to your home through your home’s foundations.
Termite Treatment Methods
There are several methods of termite extermination treatments. It is common to treat the soil around your home, especially if you are dealing with subterranean termites. Similarly, specific areas of wood can also be treated with termiticide. Your termite control technician may place bait traps to lure termites away from your home.
