• Termites are among the worst pest problems, most people think termites can’t harm them and their home, but in-fact termites are called the “silent destroyer” because they are not visible and have no immediate sign of damage. Termite control is necessary, and you know termites can literally eat up the equity in your home. According to research made by the National Pest Management Association, termites have a cost of $5 billion each year in damages to the living people of United States. Termite infestation is more common in wood houses, because they provide cellulose base plant material that’s almost present in every home regardless of its construction type, termite control can save you from spending a lot of money. Termites are detritivore’s or often called detritus feeders.

    Some types of Termite:

    Dry Wood Termites:

    On rare occasion dry wood termites may be found in northern states. Dry wood termites chew tiny holes in the surface of the wood and fecal pellets are pushed through these holes.

    Native Subterranean Termites:

    Native subterranean termites will almost always be found under conditions where they have direct contact with soil. In making a general treatment it is not necessary to treat all wood in the structure. The objective is to create a “barrier of treated wood” one to two feet wide between the soil and the base of the structure.

    Non-Native Subterranean Termites:

    Coptotermes species (Formosans and others) are restricted to the southern U.S. in the north would likely be transported inside wood.

    Damp Wood Termite:

    Damp wood is different from other termites they don’t have contact with the soil. They don’t make tunnels like the other types. Wood usually looks clean and smooth eaten by the dampwood termites, because they often eat across the grain, especially in the wood that is decayed.

    Conehead Termite:

    Conehead termite is a drywood termite species with native distribution in the Caribbean and Central American tropical countries. Newly established conehead termite colony remains hidden for several years after their birth and become visible when colony ages and matures their nests can be found above the ground. The nests above ground can be found in trees, shrubs or on buildings.
