TERMITE INSPECTIONS AND TERMITE TREATMENT IN CONNECTICUT

The Eastern Subterranean termite is the most widespread termite species in Connecticut and the United States as a whole. Another major termite found in New England is the Dark Southeastern Subterranean termite. Just like all these types of CT pests, typical signs of termite infestation include wood damage and notice of swarmers which are the winged adults.

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.

  • Workers – fairly small (approximately ⅛”) with soft, wingless and translucent bodies
