Casselberry Termite Control
Reliable Pest Elimination & Extermination
Did you know that subterranean termites cause an estimated $5 billion dollars in damage each year? Termites are a huge threat to your biggest investment: your home. They are subtle and oftentimes go unnoticed until it is too late! These stealthy creatures find moist wood in your home and then go to town, munching away on the frame of your home like a buffet.
So what can you do to prevent these destructive invaders from eating your home? Termites are looking for a water source. When they enter your home it is usually because there is some sort of a leak which is causing wood in your home to become moist and a perfect food source. This could be a leak in your roof, window frame, shower, kitchen, and the list goes on! Locating and stopping these leaks is essential to making sure your home doesn't become the next meal!
Most Common Types Of Termites
Wings, little black bugs all over your floor, or how about these same bugs flying around your home like a scene out of a horror film! Subterranean Termites can cause quite a commotion, or they can be as subtle as a pinhole leak. They will seek out wood in your home that is affected by moisture which could be because of a roof leak, leaky pipe, water damage from rain, etc…
These destructive termites will find this damp wood and go to town, eating away at the frame of your house. If you wait too long, you could be looking at a pretty hefty repair bill!
Replacement of studs, window frames, baseboards and roof decking are just a few of the line items that will be on your bill. Subterranean termites travel to their food sources (YOUR HOME!) through mud tubes which they create to protect themselves. When they find what they are looking for they will set up shop and start tearing away at your biggest investment.
In the spring, the colony in your home will produce swarmers. These termites are the ones who are responsible for starting new colonies. When a colony has been building up for several years and has reached maturity it is time for them to find other homes to infest. Termite swarmers will emerge from other colonies using cracks, crevices, holes, and gaps in your home and attempt to fly out and mate with a new queen, forming a new Subterranean Termite colony.
Unfortunately, most of these swarmers will get stuck in your house. This causes mayhem when you go to your bathroom in the morning and hundreds of swarmers all over the surfaces; crawling and flying, trying to find their way out. This is when it is time to call a professional!
In conclusion, subterranean termites are the most destructive type of termite you can have. When you see the swarmers, it is too late.
The damage has been done. The only thing you can do now is call your local pest control professionals and have them perform a thorough and proper inspection. Once the inspection is complete you can then figure out what the scope of damage is, schedule your subterranean termite treatment to eradicate the current colony living in your home, and prevent any further damage. After your home has been treated you will not need another treatment for up to 10 years.

Though not as destructive but still quite an invasive pest, drywood termites can pack quite a punch! These termites will slowly eat your home inside out!
Drywood termites are found all across Central Florida. From Old Sanford to Old Downtown Orlando, then all the way up to East Orlando you will find this pest tearing up attics, window frames, door frames, and any other wood around your home.
Spotting these termites can be really simple. Usually you will find a pile of frass (termite droppings) around the areas they are infesting. This could be your kitchen cabinets or even your ceiling. A customer of ours kept finding little piles of what they thought were just wood shavings on their bed every day. Come to find out, the drywood termites had worked a hole through the ceiling above the bed and were living in the attic beams above!
Treatment for drywood termites consists of spot treating areas of infestation, preventative treatment of your attic, and in severe cases you could be looking at a full tent fumigation of your home.
