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.
What you need to know about termites in your home.
Most termite reproductives or “swarmers” begin swarming in early spring to establish new satellite colonies.
These to be “kings” and “queens” of the new colony are commonly identified incorrectly as “flying ants” and unsuspecting homeowners think the problem is resolved when they stop coming out.
Subterranean termites have several feeding sites within a 300 ft radius of the nest and use phero
mone trails to communicate to other termites where food and water 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 to ground contact with the soil.
