Termite infestations can be perplexing to properly diagnose. It is easy to mistake termites for other insects, such as ants. The most obvious sign is the discovery of a winged termite indoors. You can distinguish a termite from similar insects by its straight antennae, uniformed waists, and wings. It is certainly difficult to differentiate between winged ants and termites. The best course of action in this case is to give Cleargate Pest Defense a call.
Termites are attracted to light. Therefore, most likely you will spot them near windows or doors. You may also see tubes the width of a pencil in/on foundation walls. This is the termite colony’s protection as they travel through tunnels between the inside of your home and underground. It is crucial that you give us a call if you come upon such destructive work.
There are many other pests and wildlife that we treat. This includes beetles, bees and wasps, silverfish, centipedes, crickets, mites, snails and slugs, stink bugs, weevils, snakes, and many more.
