Termite Facts, Identification & Prevention

Termites, a word that sends absolute dread through every home and property owner alike.  Termites can cause intense levels of damage to structures. Due to the intensity of their damage, it is important to treat the problem as soon as you become aware. Treating termites before severe damage can save you thousands of dollars.

The longer termites have to feed on your property, the more costly the repairs become. So, how can you identify and treat for termites?

Identification and Infestation

Though there are a variety of termite species, we only have the damp wood termite and the subterranean termite in Washington.

Dampwood termites are only associated with wet rotting wood. And because they live in the wood that they are working on, the colony can be removed by simply performing repairs and eliminating the source of the moisture.

Sub termites, however, live in the ground and come up from the colonies through protective mud tubs to feed on the wood in your home. Finding these mud tubes on foundation walls or cracks in the slab can indicate the presence of sub termites. These termites are usually found during the course of repairs or through a quality home inspection.
