Winged Termite or Winged Ant?
When you see "flying ants" and you're not sure whether they are ants or termites, save a specimen and call us.
|Winged termites have a straight thick waist and are well rounded. Their wings extend far beyond the length of the body. All wings are the same length.|
|Winged ants have a thin waist and are wasp-like. Their wings extend only slightly beyond their body and their forewings are larger than their hind wings.|
Termite colonies work 24 hours a day. Worker termites forage for food to bring to the colony through mud tunnels.
Termites can travel 130 feet from their colony in search of food, leaving a trail for others to follow.
Termites only need a crack 1/64" in the slab floor to gain entrance into your home.
Termites eat wood from the inside out, causing the wood to appear normal until it is almost completely destroyed.
Termites and Your Property
Depending on the construction of your home, its geographic location, moisture, heat, and soil conditions, today's termite chemicals typically break down in 3 to 5 years.
Central heating systems make it possible for termites to live in the adjacent soil year-round.
A typical house can have multiple colonies situated under or around it. There can be as many as 2 million subterranean termites per colony causing a real threat to all property.
Typical homeowner's insurance does not cover the threat of termites.
