Because we want to eradicate termites and their colonies before they have a chance to become entrenched in your home, we use soil treatments, not bait systems. Soil treatments get rid of these nasty pests ten times more quickly than baiting techniques. And, when it comes to termite infestations, you want safe, fast solutions.
There may be nearly 3,000 different kinds of termites, with almost 200 varieties considered to be pests. A good number of these types reside in Florida, including these three kinds:
Termites live in colonies, with queens continually producing eggs during a lifespan that can be 50 years long. So, if you see a few termites, there are plenty more hovering nearby.
You might see DIY products for sale but it’s not a good ideal to try to exterminate termite infestations yourself. Instead, that’s the time to call in professional pest control technicians who use the most effective products and equipment, applying treatments appropriately.
Fortunately the termite control experts at Turner Pest Control know how to identify the termite infestation types you have. Our trained technicians then use a strategic combination of methods to eradicate them.
There are several species of termites in our area. These small, soft-bodied insects live in large colonies and feed on wood, including timber and the wood in structures. The three major types are subterranean, drywood, and dampwood. As their names imply, subterranean termites usually live in soil; drywood termites prefer very dry wood; and dampwood termites prefer wet wood, such as in forested areas.
Turner does not offer a warranty on drywood termites, but we can spot-treat them. If you have a severe drywood termite problem, we will refer you to drywood termite treatment professionals.
The presence of termites alone is not a definitive indicator of whether damage has been done. Determining if your home has been damaged requires an inspection. If you suspect you have termites, Turner offers a free inspection and estimate.
It’s easy to mistake termites for flying ants. Both have four wings, but termite wings are uniform in size while flying ants have larger wings in the front. Generally, termites range from ¼ to ½ an inch long and are pale in color.
Each species has its own swarming season, but in general, spring is primetime for termites. Formosan subterranean termites, the most destructive type, are seen in spring and swarm at night. Contact us immediately if you notice swarming termites.
Termites do billions of dollars’ worth of damage in the U.S. every year. They eat nonstop, around the clock, so large populations can quickly damage wood and threaten the integrity of your home’s structure. The good news is that our comprehensive Port St. Lucie termite extermination services get rid of existing colonies and prevent their return.
The key to termite prevention is reducing or getting rid of the moisture that termites need. Take steps to reduce the humidity levels in your crawl space and attic; divert water away from your home’s foundations with gutters; and fix leaks coming from pipes, faucets, and your outdoor AC unit. You should also get rid of roots or tree trunks, wood stakes, or old form boards that are close to your home. Regularly inspect your home’s foundations for termite damage signs.
This is one area of pest control that Port St. Lucie homeowners should not attempt on their own. Licensed pest control professionals have the experience, extensive training, technology and products required to effectively control termites populations and protect your home.
We do not do WDOs. These are typically done by home inspectors in the Port St. Lucie area.
