Flying Termites

Flying termite "swarmers", are young newly hatched insects that usualy appear after the last freeze of the year. This is when they start to mate and form new colonies. If you spot swarmers or their discarded wings around windows, doors, or other openings in your home, it is important that you call us for a free quote. Swarming happens when a termite colony has matured enough to leave the colony and needs to expand it. Termites usually swarm mid-morning on warm days after heavy rains.

Termite Mud Tubes

Termite mud tubes are usually found near a home’s foundation, in walls, attics or soffits of a home. They are normally found inside the home first near windows and doors or in drywall or wooden trim boards. Subterranean termites build these tubes to provide a source of moisture for them when they travel between a food source and their colony.

Termite Colonies

Eastern Subterranean Termite colonies can range from 55,000 to 5 million termites per colony, with the average colony size being 300,000. In the Lebanon, Murfreesboro region, you can usually find 15 to 20 termite colonies per acre, so chances are pretty high that your home could have a termite colony living near you. With some 300,000 hungry subterranean termites looking for food around you, it pays to defend your property with our professional termite control systems.

Preventing the Need for Termite Control

To reduce the likelihood of a termite problem, take the following preventive measures:

  • Elevate wooden floorboards during construction
  • Install dehumidifiers in crawl spaces or wooden areas under decks
  • Use gravel or rocks instead of mulch, and keep mulch away from your home
  • Quickly address slab leaks or any moisture around your foundation

How our Trelona Termite System Works

The Trelona® termite system takes advantage of termites' instincts to eliminate colonies from the inside out. Unlike liquid protection systems, the Trelona system is cost-effective, easy to install, and provides long-lasting results. The system includes stakes filled with termite bait, which is more attractive to termites than actual wood. The bait contains an undetectable poison that spreads throughout the colony, eventually killing all workers and the colony's food source. With the food source gone, the colony dies out.

This efficient process, along with the continuous monitoring and replenishing of bait, ensures complete termite elimination.
