Fast, Effective Termite Extermination in Raleigh 

PROTEKT Pest Solutions Can Solve Your Termite Problems Today 

Did you know that termites infest over five million US buildings each year? Consequently, they cause billions of dollars worth of damage. Unfortunately, termites are endemic in the US, with species found in every state. Subterranean termites are particularly problematic, living in large colonies and often going undetected for years. 

So what should you do if you have termites? The answer is two-fold: treat the termites you have and prevent them from coming back. The Raleigh termite control team at PROTEKT Pest Solutions can help. We offer a full range of termite control services, including inspections, treatment, and prevention.

Recognizing the Different Types of Termites

If you have termites, the first step in eradicating them is figuring out which kind of termites you have. Correct identification is important as it affects how the infestation will be treated. It can be difficult for the average person to identify termite species correctly. So we recommend that if you suspect you have termites, schedule an appointment with an experienced termite control specialist, like ours.

There are three main types of termites: 

  • Dampwood termites 
  • Drywood termites 
  • Subterranean termites 

Dampwood termites prefer wet, decaying wood and are more likely to be found in rural areas, old wood piles, or rotting wood. Though there are dampwood termites all over the US, most homeowners have either drywood termites or subterranean termites. Drywood termites, as their name suggests, are drawn to dry wood. You will find damage from drywood termites all over your home, from basements to attics. Meanwhile, though also attracted to dry wood, subterranean termites require contact with the soil. Consequently, subterranean termites access your home from the ground up. 

Signs You Have Subterranean Termites 

One of the most commonly found subterranean termites in the Raleigh and Wake Forest area is the Subterranean termite. These termites were originally native to China, but they are now found throughout the globe. These termites cause a significant amount of damage, in large part because they live in colonies of hundreds of thousands of workers. There have even been reports of subterranean termite colonies numbering in the millions. 

You may have subterranean termites if you notice any of the following symptoms: 

  • Seeing swarming termites 
  • Finding discarded wings from a swarm 
  • Seeing mud tubes going up your foundations, walls, etc. 
  • Paint is peeling, cracking, or bubbling 
  • Wood elements are spongey, hollow-sounding, or show signs of boring 

Subterranean termites can be treated in a couple of different ways. In some cases, the soil surrounding the affecting structure is treated with a termiticide chemical. If the infestation is severe, the pesticide may also be injected directly into the structure. Finally, baiting systems have also been found effective at treating and preventing subterranean termites.
