These insects disperse throughout the soil building underground tunnels hundreds of feet to reach feeding sites. The workers, soldiers, and reproductive’s are the three forms found in a termite colony. A colony can contain hundreds of thousands of individual termites. However, the forms are distinct from one another by appearance and their function within the colony. The workers forge for food and water. Also, they construct shelter tubes, care for the eggs and young. The Soldier's primary function is to defend the colony and the reproductive’s produce new offspring. Let us show you how to get rid of termites in your home or business.

These insects can be detected when termites swarm in mud tubes and wood damage. Seeing swarming termites typically means that a large colony is present and the adult reproductives are looking to pair, forming a new colony. These termites construct mud tubes to protect themselves from drying and from enemies, such as ants. They do not create wood particles or powder. To detect an active infestation, mud tubes should be scraped away and then monitored to determine if the tubes are repaired or rebuilt.
To prevent infestation, eliminate moisture and food sources such as wood and paper. Destroy mud tubes to interrupt access to wooden substructures. This is just one method of prevention used in demonstrating how to get rid of termites around your home.
