Termite Control in Fredericksburg, Fairfax, Alexandria, Arlington

Termite Control in Fredericksburg, Fairfax, Alexandria and Arlington, VA

Most of us don't find out we have a termite problem until discovering bits of hollowed-out wood, generally located around the perimeter of the homes and its foundation. Another tell-tale sign of termites is when one taps on wood and it sounds hollow.

Termites are social insects and live in colonies with specific roles. There are workers, soldiers, reproductives and even queens. As a termite colony matures, it may release winged males and females – or “swarmers.” If they survive, swarmers will settle, shed their wings and form a new colony.

Eastern Subterranean Termites typically create their homes in mud and dirt and then use tunnels they create to go above ground for their food sources. Drywood Termites are the common pests that make their way into your home, from the walls to the furnishings. They can gain entry into the home through small openings, during renovation processes, or by bringing in infested furnishings.

Why Should You Address Termite Problems?

It goes without saying that termites cause serious structural damage. Termites can chew through furnishings, wood floors, interior items, and house foundation. Not only does this cause trouble for a home’s residents but may also affect the resale value of your home.

What are Signs of Termites?

These termites create Mud Tunnels to travel to and from their food source, which is unfortunately your home. Their food source is the cellulose from the structural wood of your home. The Eastern Subterranean Termite needs moisture to live so they create these tunnels to travel through that contain moisture and allows them to build their colony further.

Are Termites Dangerous?

Termites are very destructive, especially to woods that homes are commonly built from. All that will be left is a hollowed out structure. Termites alone cause damage of two billion dollars a year.

If you suspect that you may possibly have termites, schedule a termite inspection as soon as possible.  The longer termites are left unattended, the more damage will be done to your home.   Call Summit today to schedule a free estimate for termite control and prevention.

Termite Prevention in Fredericksburg, Fairfax, and Alexandria

Termites are drawn to moisture, so it is important to keep the foundation of the home dry by making sure that the soil stays dry with proper drainage systems or gutters and downspouts. It’s also important to fill cracks and openings in the foundation or other areas where the termites might be getting in. Leaks should be fixed immediately and vents need to be cleared of any type of blockages. Firewood and wood debris needs to be kept away from the home and trees and shrubs should be trimmed.
