Termites are a serious threat to homes, especially in the southeast. Queens can produce thousands of termite eggs per day, and termites have a relentless appetite for the structural wood in your home. Unfortunately, termite damage is typically not covered by homeowners insurance — so you’ll want to stay two steps ahead of termite invasions. The termite experts at Arrow Exterminators can help you do just that.
Homes are at risk from multiple types of termites:
Subterranean termites live underground and infiltrate homes through a series of tunnels. They feed on the cellulose components of your home, which are primarily wood and by-products of wood. Subterranean termites are very common in southern states and have a proclivity toward warmer climates, but they have been found in every state except Alaska.
Drywood termites do not need contact with the soil like subterranean termites. Drywood termites build colonies in structural wood; control of drywoods can be more challenging because their colonies are not confined to the soil.
Formosan termites are sometimes referred to as “super termites” because of their size, destructive habits and size of the colonies. Colonies can number over 1 million!
Termites cause substantial interior damage to your home. They feed on a variety of wood, including structural timbers, furniture and hardwood flooring. Termites usually work from the inside out. Staying ahead of termites is paramount, because as soon as a homeowner starts to notice minor damage, considerable damage has most likely already occurred.
Our professionals inspect homes to discover potential termite entry points, typically in foundation cracks, roof vents or areas of your home with inadequate ground clearance. Once termites enter, they don’t just visit. They make your home their own.
