Termite Control for Homes & Businesses
When it comes to termites, you could potentially be looking at serious damage to any wooden structures. Often going unnoticed until significant structural damage has been done, it is crucial to find any termite nesting sites as soon as you see any telltale signs of a termite infestation. We want to ensure that your home or business remains free of any termites, as well as that the structural integrity of the structure itself is safe.
That’s why Superkiller have created termite treatment services specifically designed to protect you against future termite infestations. Whether they’ve invaded your home or your business, we have the skills, equipment, and experience to effectively treat and remedy any termite problems you may be experiencing, no matter how big or small.
Signs of a Termite Infestation
A house with a termite problem will show some telltale signs if you know what to look for.
- The clearest sign of a termite infestation is seeing a swarm of winged termites around your window and door frames. Flying termites are essentially the reconnaissance team swarming on behalf of their colony in search of a viable new location. Unfortunately, termite swarmers may be easily mistaken for flying ants, but fortunately there are more clues that termites are in or near your home.
- Look for small piles of “sawdust”, which are actually termite droppings, and shed wings.
- Tiny holes in your wood are used by termites to deposit their droppings outside of the nest.
- You may also notice “bubbles” on your wood from termites building tunnels close to the surface and mud-like tubes running from one piece of wood to another.
- Termite mud tubes are moisture-rich passageways termites used to safely travel without drying out. Damaged wood and imperfections in the sheetrock are also signs that you may have a termite problem.
- Damaged trees on your property may be a sign of an imminent problem. Termite activity in trees near your home may not present an immediate danger, but that colony will produce swarmers soon enough and when they do, your home may be at risk. Your strongest measure of termite prevention is to proactively eliminate these tree-based infestations.
Termite Damage & Repair
Termites are silent attackers, concealing their colonies behind walls, siding or wood trim. Homeowners often don’t notice they have termites until they are renovating or selling their home. Termites build networks of tunnels and chambers by chewing along the wood grain, digesting the cellulose found in the wood and depositing anything left over in a pellet.
Over time, termite damage can destroy the wood in your home and attract other pests like rodents, carpenter ants and silverfish. Even worse, this damaged wood can lead to structural problems that can make your home unsafe. Termites have been known to demolish sill plates, joists and studs.
Not only can we provide termite removal and monitor colonies in and around your home, but we also provide termite damage repair for damage already done to your home. We’ll replace all damaged wood with a treated support system to ensure the problem doesn’t return.
