As one of the leading pest control problems in Virginia, termites are more than just a nuisance – they can do a considerable amount of damage to wood in just a short amount of time. At Hall's Pest Control Service, we're termite experts and have seen first-hand what can happen when the invaders are allowed to flourish.
TERMITES live in colonies underground — they actually cannot live above ground for very long. In Spring, swarmers are pushed out to form a new colony. You may see them flying around and any aerosol insecticide will kill them until you can call in a professional to do a complete job.
Termite colonies have several layers to them and each termite has their own role within the colony. Worker termites are the actual wood destroyers — but they only do this to make tunnels for the rest of the colony to travel through.
How to tell a TERMITE from an ANT:
Hall's Termite and Pest Control can help identify and control this unwanted pest. We offer a FREE estimate (identification process) with no obligation.
You may see what you think is ant and but it’s actually a termite. There is a difference but you need to know what you are looking for. Ants have bodies with three segments (two waists) and the antennae are bent or “elbowed”. Termites have a thick or nearly imperceptible waist and their antenna tend to be short and straight.
Termites cause billions of dollars in damage each year. They feed primarily on wood, but have also been known to work their mischief on books, insulation and many other materials containing cellulose, their main food source. Termites seldom attack living trees, preferring to wait until they are dead or dying. You will most often be interested in these pests when buying or selling a home since the termite inspection — or infestation report — is most often a condition of sale.
