Termite Identification & Prevention

Get Started With Quality Pest Control

Termites are one of the most destructive pests to host around your property, so contact Trius Pest Management for removal assistance the moment you see or suspect these insects are present.

What are termites?

Termites are small, soft-bodied insects that are well-known for their behaviors of chewing through wood and creating colonies. Most termites are cream to tan or light brown in color, they have strong jaws, and they grow to a maximum of about half an inch in length. Reproductive termites, also known as swarmers, may grow a little larger and they do have a pair of wings they use to leave their original colonies.Pest Library Termites

In our area, eastern subterranean termites are the most problematic species. Contact Trius Pest Management today for termite identification if you suspect this pest is chewing away at the wood on your property.

Are termites dangerous?

While termites don’t bite humans directly or spread diseases into human structures, they are still an incredibly dangerous pest to host around your property. Termites are constantly tunneling and chewing through wood to create their colonies, and as these pests invade the wooden areas of your structure, they create significant damage.

Signs that termites are ruining the wood in your home include sinking floors and ceilings, tight-fitting doors and windows, wood that appears moisture-damaged, or wood that breaks easily under a slight touch. 

Professional termite control is the only way to eliminate this pest and avoid these dangers.

Why do I have a termite problem?

Your property most likely has a termite problem because it provides easy access to wood and the excess moisture that termites love to pursue. If you notice an increase in termites around your property, you should check for factors that attract these pests; Trius Pest Management can help with this task.

Termites are commonly found underground in their colonies, though these colonies may stretch to your property’s foundation. Termites will then be seen entering properties via mud tubes, and you may find termites inside all of the wooden structures of your property such as support beams, walls, ceilings, attics, and even wooden furniture.

Outdoors, you might notice termites invading fallen trees, piles of debris, or munching their way through stored wood piles.

Termite removal is an extensive process, and only Trius Pest Management can help you get rid of termites for good. With the help of our pest management professionals, you won’t need to worry about finding every termite hiding spot yourself or using less-than-effective DIY termite control solutions to eradicate this pest. Our team will find the root cause of your problem and treat your termite issues so you can reclaim your property.
