Eastern Subterranean Termites
Termites are social insects that live in large colonies. These insects digest cellulose in wood. Termites, indisputably, are the most destructive of structural pests. The National Pest Management Association estimates that termites cause $1.5 billion in damages to structures annually and that an additional $1.0 billion is spent on treatment alone.If you are visiting this page, you either think that you have termites or are concerned about termites. The first thing you should know is that if you live or work in the Dallas or Tarrant County metro area is that we live in a highly dense termite zone. Even though there are 3 different types of termites in the US there is a roughly 99% chance that if you have termites they are Eastern Subterranean Termites.
“I think I have termites, what now?”

  1. Whether you think you have termites or your neighbor has had them and you just want to check your home, I would start checking these places.
    1. Plumbing penetrations around your home.
    2. The foundation of your home.
    3. Any wood in contact with the soil around your home.
  2. I would suggest that you find and closely examine the pest that you think are termites. Most people only discover that they have Termites after a termite swarm from a fully mature colony has escaped in their home. Once you have the pest make sure that they are not flying ants, most people can not tell, please see our page about Flying ants Vs Termites.
  3. Call a Texas State Licensed exterminator that has been licensed by the TDA for wood destroying insects to properly identify and give an estimate for treatment options.
