No one wants to hear the word Termites when it comes to your home or commercial property. Termites can be a serious issue, especially if left unchecked for a long period of time. Unfortunately, termites thrive under homes, and in structural areas of a home where people rarely visit, leaving them to multiply and continue their destructive behavior for sometime years. Many times homeowners become aware they have a potential termite issue when having an inspection completed on their home, or some other type of contracted work such as crawl space work, or some other structural job.
Termite extermination can be quite tricky, making sure you find all colonies, provide a corrective treatment, and consistent follow-up — all are essential to ensuring these wood destroying pests are removed for good. When it comes to termite infestations, many property owners will search for answers to common questions around these pests. This page has been compiled to answer these frequently asked questions so you can be better informed.

Common termites here in the Western North Carolina area generally are one of two species, Eastern Subterranean Termites, and West Indian Powderpost Termites. However, because these pests have different life stages, appearances between these two species can vary widely. Referencing our Pest Library will help as we’ve provided pictures of common stages homeowners may encounter with these pests.
Seeing flying termites, commonly known as Swarmers does not mean you have a termite infestation. During termite swarming season, queen termites fly off in search of building a new colony. But swarming is a sign that there’s a mature termite colony somewhere close to your home.
