TERMITES & WOOD INFESTING INSECTS
Most peoples’ reaction to the affirmation that they have a termite infestation at their home or place of business is usually a sense of shock and fear. Rightfully so! Termites cause more damage to homes than fires, hurricanes and floods combined. In Florida, colonies of termites usually start in-ground, with foraging done by way of mud tubes and wood tunneling into structures or other wood sources. Colonies can have hundreds of thousands of termites and several separate colonies(satellite) that may be near to feed on a single home or structure. Swarming termites (alates) which consists of hundreds of alates are usually what the customer first notices as the true sign of an infestation. There are many different types of termites and several of them are found right here in Florida.
