Termites are of significant concern to all homeowners in Texas because they are such destructive pests. Often referred to as “silent destroyers,” termites can be present for years, eating away at a structure unseen by homeowners; they typically live underground as they are subterranean pests. Termites establish colonies near food sources; they zero in on wooden structures and buildings, with other accessible construction materials that appeal to them.

 

Termites become more active when the weather warms up in Texas, since colder temperatures usually drive them underground or to other places where they can stay warm; their activity becomes less evident and the damage they cause is temporarily slowed until they emerge again on warmer days. They are one of the worst kinds of pests that can infest your property. Termite colonies have groups of worker, soldier, and reproductive termites. You might see some of them coming out of the woodwork in the spring, during the height of the termite swarming season. Some of them grow wings and begin to swarm when a colony is ready to expand, usually once each year. Once the winged termites determine a location for a new colony, they drop their wings and start to mature and mate to create a new colony.

 

Termites are sometimes confused with ants, but if you suspect your home has a termite colony nearby and that you have a possible infestation, you need to have a professional termite inspection done. In order to address termite issues effectively, professional assessment and treatment are recommended so pest experts can handle the problem immediately; the professionals have tested solutions for termite infestations. As a homeowner in Texas, you should work with a trusted pest control company to create a plan for extermination and future prevention; a tailored treatment plan will be focused on your specific termite control needs.
