Subterranean Termites

termite removal company boston area

Subterranean termites typically nest underground or near the soil to maintain some connection with the soil through a series of mud tubes. Termite damage normally starts in the main structural wooden supports in the basement.

Most termite reproductives or “swarmers” begin swarming in early spring to establish new satellite colonies. Subterranean termites have several feeding sites within a 300 ft radius of the nest and use pheromone trails to communicate to other termites where these food sources are located.

Termites can be identified by finding mud tubes, termite swarmers, damaged wood or live workers. Typical conditions that are conducive to termites are moisture-related issues and wood in contact with the soil.
