Termite Exterminator

Termite Control

A termite infestation could cause severe structural damage and destruction to your property or home. This is because termites silently chew through wood in your home (floors, behind the sheetrock, etc.) as they search for cellulose, their main food source. It’s because termites are often not detected for several months that they can be very destructive and costly. 

Types of Termites in Northern NJ

The most common type of termites found in Northern NJ is the subterranean termites. Subterranean termites prefer to chew on the wood between the grains. This is in contrast to dry wood termites, which prefer to chew on the grain. Subterranean termites nest in ground rather than dry wood termites, which nest within the wood.

How to tell if you have termites

Subterranean termites can be identified by vertical “mud tubes”, which are visible from the foundation of your house. These mud tubes are used by subterranean termites to reach your home from the ground. These mud tubes, which are dark brown in color, are made of soil, saliva and wood. As they forage above ground, subterranean termites use mud tubes to protect and retain moisture.

Termiticides are used to kill termites. In order to eradicate termites, exterminators may need to inject hundreds of gallons worth of termiticide into nests to kill them. An alternative strategy is to apply an insecticide all around the house and at any entry points.

The job is usually completed in one day by a professional exterminator. Although most products will protect you from re-infestation for as much as 5 years, it’s a good idea not to wait until they return.

Wooden houses and buildings can become unsafe if termites have caused significant damage to the foundations, beams and other support structures. This is a major safety concern because a wood structure becomes weaker and more brittle.

Termites are attracted to wood within the home as well as moisture and wood in contact of house foundations. Different combinations can attract different species. Geographic location also plays a part in how likely homeowners will be to combat infestations.

There are two options: liquid termite pesticides (termiticides), which can be used for soil treatment and barrier. Or, you can use termite lures. Some people choose to go with both.
