Do You Have Termites?

Termites often leave some evidence of their presence. Look for small holes in wood, crumbling drywall, or sagging doors or floors. Insect wings are another sign, as termites shed their wings when they swarm. If you suspect infestation call SUPERIOR TERMITE & PEST CONTROL for a free inspection!

The purpose of the inspection is to determine where and how termites are entering your home. Every accessibly inch of the house that comes into contact with the ground must be inspected for signs of damaged wood and termite shelter tubes.

If the inspection reveals that you have termites, SUPERIOR TERMITE & PEST CONTROL will recommend a treatment plan that will get rid of the termites and keep them from returning.

The Subterranean Termite Colony

The termites most likely to attack your home are subterranean termites. Although they could number in the millions, you might never see them or any evidence of them--until you discover that they've done serious damage to your home.




King and Queen

At least one king and queen are at the center of every termite colony. The queen's sole purpose is to reproduce. Some live for as long as 30 years.





Eggs

Queens can lay thousands of eggs every year. Eggs hatch into nymphs.





Nymphs

While in the nymph state, termites diverge into different castes: workers, soldiers, reproductives, and supplementary reproductives.





Workers

Workers are blind, wingless termites that maintain the colony, build and repair the nest and tubes, forage for food, and care for the other termites. They are the most numerous cast and the most likely to be found in the infested wood.





Soldiers

Soldiers are sterile, wingless, and blind. Their sole function is to defend the colony.





Winged Reproductives

These termites will eventually leave the colony as adult Swarmers. After swarming, they shed their wings and pair up. Each male-female pair attempts to start a new colony.





Supplementary Reproductives

These termites help increase the population of established colonies and can serve as replacements for the king or queen if they should die.
