Termite control in Salisbury, NC is important. Termites serve an important function in nature by converting dead trees into organic matter. Unfortunately, the wood and wood products in buildings is equally appetizing to termites and they can cause serious damage.

The most common termite in North Carolina is the Eastern Subterranean Termite. These live in underground colonies and feed exclusively on wood and wood products containing cellulose. Termites often infest buildings and damage lumber, paneling, flooring, sheetrock, wallpaper, paper products and natural fabrics when they travel above ground. The most serious damage is the loss of a building’s structural strength.

Evidence of Termite Infestations:

  • Wood damaged by termites always has remains of mud tubes (approximately the diameter of a pencil) attached to wood galleries or tunnels in an irregular pattern. In the case of an active colony, white termites may be found in infested wood.
  • The presence of flying males, females or their shed wings inside the building indicates an infestation.

 

Termite activity could be undetected for years without periodic inspections. Typically, termites have reduced feeding activity in colder weather but a mild winter allows them to feed throughout the year.

Unless it is a spot treatment, it is usually beyond the ability of an untrained person to attempt an effective termite treatment. There are products for surface treatments of infested wood but that does not protect the interior parts of infested wood nor does it prevent further infestations. Only a thorough inspection by a trained professional can show where termites are and effectively eradicate them.
