Termites are wood destroying insects and the most common species in our area are subterranean termites. Subterranean termites cause 95% of the estimated $2 billion of damage caused by termites in the United States on an annual basis. Every termite colony is made up of following:
The Queen - The primary reproducer. The queen is the largest, measuring at about 4” in length. She can live up to 10 years and produce an estimated 30,000 eggs per day.
The King - Helps create the colony and mates throughout his life to help grow the colony.
Worker Termites - The workers are soft bodied with no wings and are only about the size of a grain of rice. Their duties include caring for the eggs, building tunnels, foraging for food and feeding other members of the colony.
Soldier Termites - The soldiers are also soft bodied and wingless, but have two large and powerful jaws used as a defend against predators and invaders such as ants.
Winged Reproducers - These termites develop wings and leave the colony in swarms to mate and start a new colony.
Once a termite infestation develops, these insects can be very difficult to get rid of and can cause extensive and very expensive damage before being discovered. It is extremely important to watch for signs of termite activity around your Kentwood home to be able to locate the problem before the infestation becomes too large. Several signs of termite activity can include:
Small mud tubes along foundation
Damage to any wooden surfaces
Shed termite wings
Sagging windows or door frames
Soft spots in floors or ceilings
If you have noticed any of these signs of termite activity around your Kentwood home or business, it is crucial to contact Rose Pest Solutions immediately. Taking swift action can prevent much more costly damage down the road.
Termites are very difficult to eliminate because their underground colonies are compiled of tunnels that can stretch up to 300 feet. Also, if the entire colony is not eliminated the remaining termites will often return and rebuild. At Rose Pest Solutions, we offer the Sentricon® Termite Colony Elimination System. The Sentricon System is environmentally friendly and is proven to eliminate the entire colony and provide 24/7 protection if service is continued. The Sentricon plan consists of a three step process, including:
Detection of termites
Elimination of the entire colony
Continuous monitoring to prevent another infestation
