We specialize in termite removal, including the elimination of subterranean termites.
Although the presence of termites in your home is always cause for concern, it’s helpful to understand the different types of termites and the habits of each. One of the most common types of termites is the subterranean termite, which falls into the family Rhinotermitidae in the classification system. Subterranean termites are found in every state in the continental US. Those living in and around Fort Lauderdale, Florida and nearly every other state in the nation have to worry about the presence of these damaging insects.
The subterranean termite has saw-tooth jaws that it uses to bite off small wood fragments, piece by piece. These insects form colonies and can reproduce very quickly, leading to a serious infestation in a short period of time. Subterranean termites build unique tunnels, often referred to as mud tubes, to get to and from the colony. They set up camp wherever they have direct access to wood, and a wood-framed house is an ideal place for them. Over time, a colony of subterranean termites can cause serious damage to a structure framed with wood, potentially leading to its complete collapse.
