Types of Termites

Termites range in size from 1/8 to 3/8 inches and light to dark brown in color. These pests swarm in the spring and tunnel into the wood, which causes structural damage. The most common termites in Ohio are subterranean termites, though dry wood termites may travel into the state in furniture or other wooden objects and establish colonies. Dry wood termites eat and live in wood, swarm annually, and may also eat paper, furniture, wall-boards, and cloth.

Subterranean termites:

  • Live underground
  • Enjoy warmth
  • Make mud tunnels to travel from the soil to your property
  • Can get inside a building through cracks as small as 1/64 of an inch

Termites can feed on any structure that contains wood, including homes, commercial properties, sheds, and other wood structures. They can enter through tiny cracks and cause extensive structural damage before you realize they have invaded your home. Carothers Pest Control offers effective termite control to help you with a current infestation and make sure termites do not invade in the future..

Warning Signs of Termite Infestations

According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, termites cause more than $5 billion in damage annually, and property insurance generally does not cover damage caused by termites. Since you can’t see or hear termites, identifying them without a professional inspection is extremely difficult. However, there are some warning signs that can indicate a termite problem.

Look for signs of termites such as:

  • Mud tubes that are about the size of a pencil running from the soil to your building
  • Small papery wings on your windowsill in the late spring
  • Bubbles or distorted areas in wooden surfaces
  • Sagging wood

While these signs can indicate a termite problem, a professional inspection is needed to confirm their presence. Our termite control specialists are trained and equipped to perform a thorough inspection of your property. When a problem is found, we can recommend a custom treatment plan to control your current termite problem and prevent future infestations.
