What you need to know about Subterranean Termites

Widespread problem?

Subterranean Termites don’t travel in pairs or even families.  They swarm from location to location as an entire colony.  A small colony may only have a few thousand termites where as a large colony may have millions.

What exactly are the eating?

Wood is the obvious answer.  But let’s break that down a little and add to it.  They of course eat trees and their roots.  They also eat wood derivatives like cardboard and paper and of course the wood support frame of your home.   What you may not have guessed is that they eat cotton as well.

Termite or Ant?

Well there are multiple differences. Probably the easiest to note is that the wings are longer than the body in a termite.  However, it’s only the swarmer stage that looks like a flying ant.  See the video to see how they appear while they’re eating away at your walls.

What to do?

First things first. Get a certified termite inspection.  Magic Pest Control actually offers free termite inspection.  If there is no subterranean termite population, that clean bill of health will soothe your troubled mind.

If they find subterranean termites, they’ll be able to treat your unwelcome guests to a scientifically formulated termiticide.  Magic Pest Control uses Termidor, the leader in termiticides to treat subterranean termites.
