Over 25 Years of Experience of Providing Professional Termite Extermination | Serving Delaware, Maryland & Pennsylvania
Termites cause more than a billion dollars in damage to American homes every year.
A full blown colony of termites can eat several pounds of wood in your home every week. Most people don't know they have termites until extensive damage is done.
Termites can cause extreme damage to the structure of a building if it is not inspected, managed or treated by qualified termite control professionals.
How Do I Know if I’m Dealing with a Termite Infestation?
Common signs of termite activity:
- Mud tubes are small tunnels created by termites that allow them to travel safely between food sources. They are brown and about the size of a drinking straw.
- Certain types of termites will grow wings that are later shed. Discarded wings are a telltale sign of a termite infestation.
- Blistering wood floors or discolored wood sections can indicate that there are termites feeding below.
- Wood that sounds hollow when tapped is a signal that the inside has been hollowed out by termites.
Termites divide their work among specialized members. Worker termites do most of the damage, but chances are you will never see a worker termite. You may however see a "swarmer" or "alate". These termites travel and start new colonies.

Most People Don’t Notice a Termite Infestation Until Extensive Damage Has Already Been Done
Annual termite inspections are essential so that we are able to detect the early signs of termite activity. This will help prevent potential large-scale termite damage and expensive repairs. Termites are attracted to moisture, so it is best to keep gutters clean and divert water away from your foundation with downspouts. Termites tunnel through soil and leave a chemical trail for more termites to follow. They feed 24 hours a day, and can consume startling amounts of your home in no time!
