Are They Termites or Something Else? Our Experts Know!
Metro Pest Control uses liquid termite barriers, in-ground termite baits, foam applications and structural modifications to eliminate termites and prevent future infestations. Several factors, such as soil conditions and the type of construction determine which methods of treatment are best.
There are 4,000 species of termites. They are economically significant, as they cause structural damage to buildings. Termites live in social communities.
Termites are small insects with straight, beadlike antennas. They have two pairs of long wings, which are held flat against their bodies and which can break easily.
How they spread
Termites can spread quickly. A queen can produce roughly 1,000 eggs per day by her fourth year of life. Termites enter buildings through cracks, mud tubes, or spaces around plumbing and electrical openings.
