Pest Control - Subterranean Termites

While the building substructure is treated to prevent potential routes for termites’ entry, there are other possible means by which termites may enter the premises.
One of these is the importation of termites, usually inadvertently done when homeowners bring infested materials to their premises. It is strongly advised that owners engage professional pest control agents to regularly service/check their premises to prevent such infestation.

Evidence of Termite Infestation

  1. Wood damaged by termites always has remains of mud tubes attached to wood galleries or tunnels in any irregular pattern. In the case of an active colony, termites may be found in infested wood.
  2. The presence of flying winged males and females or their shed wings inside the building may indicate an infestation.
  3. The presence of mud or shelter tubes extending from the ground to the woodwork or the foundation walls may also indicates infestation.
