Local Pest Control Services
Termites are generally most active during the warmer months, particularly in the early hours. The ‘swarmer’ termites are scouts looking for fresh places to establish new colonies, so it’s crucial to get your home ready by taking preventative measures. Termites’ dish of choice is soft springy wood like Douglas Fir and other timber in your home. An entire termite colony targets the inside of wooden beams and other structures, abandoning a hollow shell behind. This is especially damaging to your home’s structural stability.
Over 1 in 5 homes in highly active regions such as Alexandria, VA have or will be stricken by termites. These pests can be hard to find because they come into buildings using tiny gaps in concrete. Other favorite places for termite colonies include in-fill patios and expansion joints. When you uncover termites on your property, avoid disturbing them. When shaken or disturbed, the colony will leave the spot and relocate deeper into your building to avoid being found again.
