Termites

Termites infest more than 5 million homes in the US each year, causing more than $5 billion in damages. According to the Department of Forestry, the DC region is heavily infested with termites.

They work 24 hours a day, devouring cellulous material found in wood, paper, drywall, and other materials in your home to provide for their colonies. Once termites find a good spot, they share their location with other termites using a sophisticated communication system.

Signs of a termite problem

Termites are usually active in hidden areas behind wall coverings, in crawl spaces, under foundations, and in still plates, making the damage they cause difficult to detect. However, common signs of termite infestation include mud tubes on foundations and other structures, evidence of winged “swarmer termites or their shed wings, and damaged wood, hollowed out along the grain and lined with mud.
