Termite Proofing Treatment

Termite Proofing Treatment.

What is termite ?

Subterranean termites are insects that feed on wood, frequently becoming pests of homes. There are two types of termites commonly encountered by homeowners: the worker and the swarmer. Worker termites are creamy colored, 3-4 mm long, and typically only seen when a mud foraging tube is broken, or infested wood is broken open. Swarmers are the reproductive cast of the termite colony. They are approximately 4 mm long and dark brown or black in color. They may or may not have wings, as the swarmers lose their wings shortly after emergence.

Subterranean termite workers can be found year-round, though swarmers are usually encountered between the months of March through April in Texas. Swarming flights of the most common Texas species, the eastern subterranean termite, usually take place during daylight hours.

Damage 

As termite workers consume wood, they create honey combed galleries which run parallel to the grain of the wood. There is often more damage than at first thought due to their secretive lifestyle and consumption of wood from the inside out.

People often confuse termites with winged ants, especially when they swarm. Key differences include:

The bodies of ants have a narrow constriction or waist, termites do not. Termite wings are of equal length, ants have a long pair of wings and a short pair of wings. All ants have elbowed antennae and termites have straight antennae.

Karachi Pest Control uses and advanced technique to protect homes from subterranean termite infestation by creating a treated zone around the perimeter and sub-floor of a premise. As termites tunnel through the treated zones in search of food, they are exposed to a very effective termiticide. This insecticide is not only ingested, but also adheres to the termites’ bodies. The affected termites then spread the chemical to other termites through physical contact. Within a few weeks, the entire termite colony is destroyed.
