Like all wood-destroying insects, the Eastern Subterranean termite can cause significant damage to your home or business if left untreated, especially structural damage. With colonies able to grow into the tens of thousands, or even millions of bugs, it’s important to take the right measures to prevent termite infestations before they become unmanageable. If you notice aspects such as wood damage throughout your home or business as well as evidence of swarmers, call your pest exterminators of Richland Pest & Bee.

Soldiers - flat bodies and orange-colored, rectangular armored heads with pincers; most often the first of a colony to be sighted
Swarmers - approximately ⅜” long with large wings and dark brown bodies
Workers - fairly small (approximately ⅛”) with soft, wingless and translucent bodies
Eastern Subterranean termite nests are most often found in the ground (they require a dark, damp environment to survive), but mud tubes and hollowed out wood in or around the home tend to be the most visible signs of a termite infestation.
Don’t let the cold winters of Connecticut fool you, pests and termites can be problems all year long. Although you may not see any swarmers during the cold months in CT, if they are already in your home, they can still create wood damage and wood tubes and will certainly cause a pest problem for you come Spring time.
