Termite Control Problems | Universal Pest & Termite
Termite infestations happen in the blink of an eye, so it is important to be able to identify termite swarms quickly and correctly. The swarming stage is when many termites are ready to establish a new colony and reproduce to fill that colony. In many ways, termite swarmers resemble flying ants. Termite colonies begin forming immediately after swarmers hit the ground in a suitable spot. T
The purpose of swarming is for termites to reproduce and create new colonies near food sources. Like ants, termites are very social creatures that thrive in a colony. Young termites develop wings in the springtime in order to disperse from their parent colonies in swarms.
Termite Damage | Termite Mud Tubes Subterranean termites begin their feeding process (damage) from the ground up and typically enter a building through the sub-structure. Homes with crawl spaces are at great risk. It is here you should look for evidence of damaged wood and mud tubes. Wood damaged by this particular species develops “galleries” (hollow tunnels), which run along the grain of the wood.
