Termites are wood-destroying insects that invade and feed on the cellulose found in wooden structures and plant matter. The most common termite species living in our area and all across the country is the subterranean termite. In wooded and forested areas, termites are beneficial insects, helping to break-down decaying matter. However, subterranean termites living near homes and other structures quickly become more harmful than helpful. Every year, termites cause billions of dollars in repair costs for homes and businesses across the United States. Subterranean termites live together in large colonies and divide labor into three different groups or castes—workers, soldiers, and reproductives (males and queens). Small, soft-bodied, and blind worker termites are responsible for the structural damage that occurs inside of homes and other buildings.
Rodents like mice and rats tend to be very agile and gain access to homes by diving down chimneys, climbing up walls, balancing across utility wires, running across tree branches, and squeezing through small openings in exterior walls and foundations. Rodents find their way into our homes after being attracted to our properties while foraging for food; gardens, compost bins, trash cans, outdoor eating areas, and bird feeders can all attract mice and rats to your yard. Relentless in their search for food and shelter, rodents will make themselves at home in any home or yard where food, water, and safe nesting spots are present.
Termites have probably become a problem in your home because it's provided them with everything they need to be comfortable—a temperature-controlled environment and plenty of cellulose-rich material to feed on. Termites are attracted to moist soil and water damaged wood which can result from leaky pipes and clogged gutters causing water to seep into the walls of a home and creating moisture problems.
Subterranean termites usually get into homes and other structures through door frames, deck posts, wood shingles, porch steps and supports, and other wooden objects that make direct contact with the ground. These destructive insects can also find their way inside through cracks in foundations while out foraging for food.
Even if you have a full-blown termite infestation, it’s unlikely that you will see one of these destructive pests. Subterranean termites nest in underground colonies, traveling to and from their food source through the soil or inside mud tubes. When feeding on a structure, these wood-destroying insects remain out of sight within the voids of your home are extremely discreet, not raising warning signs until extensive damage has already been done. Termites that have found their way inside a home, business, or other structure typically feed on wood located in hard-to-reach areas such as above ceilings, below floors, and behind walls.
However, you may see reproductives when they swarm from a mature colony to mate. If you witness a termite swarm, it means that termites are most likely nesting nearby
