Subterranean Termite Protection are the most common in our area, and live in underground colonies up to 100 feet from your house. Subterranean colonies have hundreds of thousands of workers with a sole purpose to find cellulose and water. Cellulose is found in the wood and building products such as wood trim baseboards and even the wood trusses that support your roof. As a constant threat to your home, subterranean termites cause more damage each year than fire, flood and wind in combined.

Termites cause more property damage each year than fires, floods and hurricanes combined. Subterranean Termites are especially active in this region between the months of February and March. They come out to swarm by the hundreds and start new colonies in this area. People often mistake this swarm for flying ants found inside of their home.

If there is a swarm inside of your home termites feeding off of wood in that area for three or more years. They cause the some of the greatest damage to homes because their colonies are so large. A few hundred thousand termites make up one colony, which can eat a door-jambs worth of wood in a week.

Subterranean termites live under the ground and forage up to 100 feet away from where the colony is located. They feed off of different areas including stumps, wooden trusses, trees and anything with a good wood supply. They can cross property lines underground and move to different areas undetected.
