HERE'S WHAT TO LOOK FOR:

 

Swarming termites (with wings) in your home or in the soil around your home.

 

Cracked or bubbling paint may indicate the presence of mud tubes. Since termites are subterranean  creatures they do not do well when exposed to light. They build mud tubes as a way to travel from one place to another while remaining shielded from the light.

 

Mud tubes on outside walls, wooden beams,in basements or in crawl spaces.

 

Wood that sounds hollow when tapped.

 

HOW TO TELL A SWARMING TERMITE  FROM A FLYING ANT

 Here in South Jersey termites may start swarming in March

and can continue any time up through June. Generally
ants will swarm later than termites beginning in late May
and continuing through out the summer. If you have swarmers
you can tell weather they are ants or termites with a quick and 
easy examination. Take note to see if the wings are detached
from the body. A termite will shed his wings where as the ant
will not. Also examine the body parts. An ant will have three 

distinct parts, the head, thorax and abdomen, the thorax of

a termite is hard to tell from the abdomen so it appears to 

have only two.

 

 

 

An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of termite treatment!

There is a lot that you can do to decrease the chances that your home will be infested by termites.Termites like all living creatures are attracted to food and water sources. Start by eliminating moisture  around your home and by removing potential food sources.

 

ELIMINATE MOISTURE

Repair leaks in faucets, pipes, and a/c units

Divert water away from foundations
Keep gutters and down-spouts clean
Get rid of standing water on your property
Keep all vents clear and open
Seal entry points around water and utility lines or pipes

REMOVE POTENTIAL FOOD SOURCES

Keep firewood,lumber,and paper away from your home's foundation
Get rid of stumps and dead wood on your property
Place screens on outside vents
Check decks and wooden fences for damage and rot
Keep an 18 inch barrier between your home and landscaping

Do not mulch up against your home's foundation
