While most Texans love spring for its beautiful blooms and warm weather, there is one major downfall to spring in Houston: termite swarms! The high humidity and heavy rains create ideal conditions for termite mating and swarming. At Green Team Pest, we have been protecting homes from these destructive pests since 2005. For termite control near Houston, look no further than the experts at Green Team Pest.
Types of Termites
Texas is home to two major groups of termites: native subterranean termites and Formosan termites. Both of these thrive in moist conditions, and feed on wood and other cellulose material. Native subterranean termites swarm in the spring and enter buildings through wood that is in direct contact with soil or through cracks in the foundation. Formosan termites swarm in the summer and inflict damage at a much faster pace.
Signs of Termites
Oftentimes, termites are present in a home before the homeowner ever notices a problem. While it is rare for a homeowner to find an actual swarm in their home, signs of an infestation include: mud tubes, hollowed out wood, visible wood damage, and piles of termite wings.
What to Do
If you’ve noticed signs of termites, don’t panic. Your first plan of action should be to call Green Team Pest. Our inspectors will perform a detailed and thorough termite and WDI inspection to determine whether termites are present. We will also detail any conditions of the property that may be conducive to attracting termites in the future.
If our inspectors determine that your home is or was affected by termites, we will create a customized treatment plan based on your family’s needs. Our goal is to create a plan of action that utilizes the most effective termite treatment methods while minimizing the impact on your family and the environment. Additionally, we will educate you on recognizing and removing conditions that invite pest activity so your home will stay termite-free for years to come.
