New Canaan Subterranean Termite ControlTermite Subterranean

Your property, whether it be your residence or business, is likely among the most important investments you'll make. Even after purchase, upkeep and maintenance are essential to protect your family or clients. However, some dangers are not always apparent; subterranean termites, for example, present a real threat to buildings.

Signs of Subterranean Termites in New Canaan

Termites are small insects that may upon first glance resemble ants. However, upon closer inspection a few differences are apparent: Usually termites will have a lighter, creamy color as well as a lack of the ants' small “waist”. Like ants and bees, termites are social insects; thus, termite colonies can become quite large. Where you might see just a few, millions more can be hidden out of sight. Subterranean termites in particular are abundant and typically the most destructive. They are often found in areas where dead, rotting or discarded wood is in contact with soil, e.g. dead trees, wood piles or a wooden structure. Consequently it is important to take certain preventative measures to lessen the probability of a termite infestation, such as utilizing termite-resistant woods during construction and keeping wood piles distant from any building. Unfortunately, no method provides a 100% guarantee against termite infestation.

Subterranean termites cause extensive damage to wooden buildings and fixtures, eventually leading loss of structural integrity or even collapse if left untreated. They can even endanger spaces without a base wooden structure. They'll consume anything containing cellulose, including paper, carpets and cloth. If you notice numerous small holes in wooden fixtures, dead termites, discarded termite wings or small earthen or mud tubes around your basement or foundation you may already be a victim of extensive termite damage.
