Termites Invading Your Home?

Here in Elk Grove, Sacramento, and Roseville, termites can cause major problems in our residential and commercial properties. Termites are tricky. They feast on your home out of sight, tunneling through wood and destroying the framework of your home. But wood isn’t all they eat. They love cellulose-based materials, including carpet, furniture and paper! They develop colonies, made up of many tens of thousands of termites enjoying the hospitality of your home, costing you a fortune in repairs and dramatically lowering the value of your house. They’re hard to detect until you finally see the evidence of their banquet – tiny holes they’ve burrowed through your wood. By the time you see that, you can be sure they’ve been feasting their way through your house for years. The only way to get rid of termites is hiring an experienced pest control company near you!

Termite Swarms in Sacramento, CA

While some types of termites have wings, most termites live in the wood in order to colonize without having to travel far for food. However, there are times when these winged varieties of termites will fly in a swarm, usually during the reproduction cycle.

Good News: termites that swarm die naturally within a short time period.

Bad News: termite swarms indicate a larger pest problem you can’t see, and evidence of a colony actively munching away at the structure of a building.

Exterminating Termite Swarms

If you see a termite swarm, call us right away, and if possible collect a sample of the swarm. Collecting some of the swarming termites helps your exterminator determine what kind of termite is taking advantage of your hospitality.

Once a swarm is detected, it’s impossible to treat without professional help. Our technicians use their building construction expertise to find points of infestation. Termite treatment may include drilling to reach the area of infestation. Strategic application of termiticide kills termites and prevents future termite family reunions. We use specialized equipment to exterminate a termite colony responsible for or producing the swarm.
