How do Termites Invade?

Termites live underground in massive subterranean habitats that are always expanding. The worker termites search for food, usually in the form of wood, and bring it back to the colony. When termites find a steady source of food (your home), they’re going to want to stay a while. They’ll construct tubes that are resistant to air and moisture and use them as highways from their colonies to your sources of wood. Even if you don’t have wood siding, they’ll find any wood products, such as floors, furniture, or even books to feed on.

What can I do to prevent termites from attacking my home?

  • Make sure to renew your annual termite service contract with Bayou Cajun Pest.
  • If your roof is leaking, have it repaired immediately. Make sure your roof remains in good shape.
  • Make sure gutters and downspouts drain at least 1.5 to 2 feet away from the foundation of your home.
  • Do not run a sprinkler system or other type of irrigation near the siding or foundation of your home.
  • Make sure any drainage from your AC unit is channeled away from your house.
  • Keep mulch and landscaping away from the siding and foundation of your home.
  • Keep firewood and other wood away from the house and garage.

How can I differentiate between a termite and a winged ant?

Termite vs. Winged Ant

There are 3 simple ways to tell these pests apart:

Antennae shape
A flying ant has elbowed antennae, as you can see from the image from the right. Termites have straight, bead-like antennae.

Body shape
A termite’s body is streamlined with no waist definition. A winged ant has a pronounced pinched waist that differentiated it from termites.

Wing size
The wings of a flying ant, or winged ant, are usually uneven in length, with the front wings being slightly longer than the back wings. On the other hand, a termite’s wings are usually equal in length.

My home is made of brick. Do I still need to worry about termites?

No matter what your home is made of—brick, concrete blocks, stucco, vinyl, wood, etc.—termites can find their way in. Even if your home is built on a concrete slab with no wood touching the ground, you still need protection from Subterranean termites. All it takes is one small crack in the material, and they will get in your home, ready to search for wood. Now, your furniture, books, floors, and the framework of your house are in danger of becoming the termites’ next feast. Once these termites are inside, they are difficult to detect until significant damage has already occurred.

But we have good news. With our termite treatments and annual maintenance services, we can prevent all of that from happening. We’ll kill them at the source, stopping them before they ever enter your home.

Will termites go away on their own after termite season passes?

No. During termite swarm season, you will see these pests flying through the air in swarms. But this isn’t the only time they are around. Termites are present year-round. The only difference is whether or not you can see them. Even when they are not visually present, Subterranean termites are tunneling under the ground or creating long mud tunnels undetected by most.

Fortunately, our expert termite exterminators know the signs and can track down these pests and kill them before they even have the chance to enter your home.

Is it possible that there are termites on my property right now headed for my house?

Yes, termites are always on the search for food, and when their current food source runs out, they begin searching for a new source. With an average of 3-4 termite colonies under the soil of an average size lot, your home will eventually become very attractive to these hungry pests.

Protection is possible with Bayou Cajun Pest Control. We’ll bring you peace of mind by creating a barrier to guard your home against termites. We even offer annual maintenance services to make sure the termites STAY away.

What is a termite swarm, and what should I do if I experience one?

When the weather is warm and moist, termites emerge from their underground colonies to disperse themselves and begin building new colonies. They may emerge from their colonies either indoors or outdoors. The reason these termites are seeking new colonies is because their current colony has grown too large. Therefore, if you do see a termite swarm, it usually indicates an infestation and warrants immediate action. At Bayou Cajun Pest Control, we are experts at exterminating termites at their source and keeping your home protected.
