Termite Control in Charlotte & Sarasota Counties

About Subterranean Termites

termite subterraneanSubterranean termites are very common in Florida. Different varieties of these termites all cause significant damage to homes and office buildings each year. It is estimated that termites are responsible for $5 billion in damage across the U.S. annually. 

Termites chew through wood in order to find a place to make a nest. Nesting termites breed until infestation levels are reached. Termites eating wood inside of the structure of a building cause weaknesses and severe damage. People who do not detect termite activity until extensive damage has been done often pay thousands of dollars to repair termite damage.

Detecting Termites

The extensive damage that can be done by termites means that it is important to detect them before an infestation gets out of control. Signs of termite activity include:

  • Small, pellet-like fecal matter on the floor or ground
  • Sagging floors
  • Wings that have been left behind after a swarm sheds their wings to nest
  • Damage done to walls or wallpaper that may be mistaken for water damage
  • Shelter mud tubes along foundation walls

Anyone who notices these signs or has any reason to suspect that termites are present in a home or structure should contact Venice Pest Control immediately.
