TYPES OF TERMITES IN LITTLE ROCK AND HOT SPRINGS, AR
Protection from termites, from the ground up
Termites are a significant problem in the southern United States, and in Arkansas, subterranean termites are the most common type found. These pests live in colonies that are typically found underground, often near a tree, stump, wood pile, or other sources of food.
Each colony has a king and queen, soldiers, and workers. The queen can lay thousands of eggs each year, and the colony can grow to contain 200,000 to 2,000,000 workers. It is important to note that termites can forage across a large area and travel over 200 feet from their nest, so a mature colony can potentially infest multiple properties. The cost of controlling or preventing termite infestations in the U.S. is estimated to be over $2 billion annually.
Contact the professionals at Adams Pest Control to conduct inspections and provide treatment options to protect your home, business, and property from termite damage.
IDENTIFYING A TERMITE INFESTATION IN YOUR HOME
What to look for at your home or business
Termites are a common problem in many homes, as they can cause significant damage to wood structures if left unchecked. There are several ways to identify a termite infestation at your home. Look for visible signs of termites, such as discarded wings, which are often found near windows or doors. Look for small holes or tunnels in wood surfaces, which can be a sign that termites are present. You may also notice signs of termite damage, such as sagging or buckling wood, or the presence of termite droppings, which look like small, black pellets.
For subterranean termites, look for dirt tubes along the outside of a home or building. Knock on areas of the walls where there should be solid wood. If it sounds hollow instead, this may be a sign that termites are chewing wood from the backside of the wall.
If you suspect that you have a termite infestation at your home, contact Adams Pest Control as soon as possible to assess the situation.
