Central Florida Termite Control
Whether you have termites in your house or want to protect your home from these pests. Our integrated A.I.M.® pest protection process works to assess your home, implement solutions, and monitor potential termite problems. We don’t just eliminate termites though! Visit our main page to see all the pests we can remove from your home. Without a thorough inspection of your home, termite activity can remain undetected for years.
Termites can thrive in Central Florida due to the warmer local climate. At Drake Lawn & Pest Control, we handle termite control quickly and effectively to protect your home from significant termite damage. Many homeowners have no idea of a termite infestation until it’s too late. Whether you’re a homeowner worried about termites in your house or a local business owner, you can rely on Drake Lawn & Pest Control to get the job done.
Signs of their activity can show up unexpectedly, while others are discovered by accident or they get noticed during an inspection. Here are some signs you have termites in your house.
Signs of Termite Activity
Termite colonies can mature in 3-5 years and begin to produce swarmers (winged termites). Swarming happens during the day, particularly on warm days after a Florida downpour. Swarmers are usually found near tree stumps and landscape timbers. This doesn’t mean your house is infested, but it serves as a reminder that termites do live around us. When swarming happens inside your home, it typically means you have an infestation somewhere in your house.
Termites can either funnel through the soil, wood, or pencil size “mud tubes” where they build soil. You often find these tubes on foundation walls, floor joists, or other parts of your house. Tubes may also hang from the floor system or be seen protruding from cracks between boards and beams. Termites may also chew through sheetrock on walls or ceilings. If you happen to find an empty mud tube, that doesn’t mean the termites are gone, they may have just left this particular tube.
We tend to think of termites as only eating wood. However, termites feed on about everything that contains cellulose, which is the main ingredient in wood. While termites are foraging and feeding, they may tunnel through non-cellulosic materials; such as plastic and foam board. In reality, the amount of damage that termites can cause depends on various factors. Due to the weather in Florida, termite activity can carry out through the entire year.
