Termite Control


A colony of termites can cause costly, structural damage, to your business or home in as little as three months. These relentless insects’ tunnel into and eat wood, leaving nothing but paper-thin layers where strong supports once were, cleverly disguising the damage. That is what makes them so scary to business and homeowners.

Spidermen Services dedicated exterminators will perform a full termite inspection on your business or home and get rid of any termites, without delay.

Understanding the Threat of Termites

Termites are often called ‘silent destroyers’ because of their ability to chew through wood, flooring, and even wallpaper undetected. There are about 2,000 known species of termites around the world. In the United States alone, termite infestations cause more than $5 billion in property damage each year—an expense not typically covered by homeowners’ insurance. This makes understanding termites and the importance of termite control crucial for property owners.

What Are Termites?

Termites are small, pale soft-bodied insects that live in large colonies with several different castes—workers, soldiers, and reproductive individuals of both sexes, sometimes including a king and queen. The workers provide the food, soldiers defend the nest, and the reproductives breed the colony. Termites feed primarily on wood, but also damage paper, books, insulation, and even swimming pool liners and filtration systems.

Termites can enter your home through cracks in the foundation, tiny gaps around doors and near utility pipes. The different types of termites include drywood, dampwood, and subterranean termites, each with unique behaviors and preferences for different types of wood and environments.

The Importance of Termite Treatment

Early detection and continuous termite management are crucial. Without it, termites can go unnoticed for years, and by the time damage is found, it is often severe. Over time, termite damage can compromise the structural stability of a home, leading to costly repairs and significant loss in property value.

Why Termite Control is Essential

1. Preventing Structural Damage:
Termites primarily feed on wood, so they can compromise the strength and safety of an infested structure. Long-term infestations can lead to weakening of the wooden structures within a building, making them unsafe.

2. Maintaining Property Value:
If left unchecked, termite damage can significantly depreciate the value of a property. Regular inspections and treatments are important when selling or buying a home.

3. Avoiding Costly Repairs:
The cost of fixing termite damage can be substantial. In contrast, investing in regular inspections and treatment is cost-effective, ensuring small problems don’t become big ones.

Termite Inspections

Signs of Termite Infestation

Identifying a termite infestation early can limit the amount of damage and the costs of repairs. Here are some signs that your property might have termites:

  • Mud tubes on exterior walls: Subterranean termites build mud tubes, which are used to protect their colony from predators and conserve moisture.
  • Wood that sounds hollow when tapped: Termites often consume wood from the inside out, leaving a thin veneer of timber or paint. When you tap it, it sounds hollow.
  • Cracked or bubbling paint: These can be signs of moisture and termite entry points.
  • Frass: Drywood termites produce wood-colored droppings as they eat through infested wood.
