Signs of an Eastern Subterranean Termite Infestation
Eastern subterranean termites are the most common and destructive type of termites in Arkansas. To minimize the damage you have to deal with in the event that you have an infestation, it is a good idea to become familiar with the signs of an eastern subterranean termite infestation.
These signs include:
- Mud tubes: Because subterranean termites prefer to live in soil, they will construct tubes made of soil up along the foundation of your property to the infested wood. In addition to the foundation, termites might also build their tubes along cracks, underneath flooring, or behind baseboards.
- Wood damage: Since termites really only enter a property to feed on the wood, you will probably notice wood damage. Aside from visible wood damage, you might notice your floors are extra creaky and your doors and windows are extra difficult to shut.
- Winged termites: A surefire way to know if you’ve got a termite infestation is if you spot winged termites around light fixtures, doors, windows, or vents. These insects look like winged ants and will often swarm a home or business, making themselves known.
As soon as you suspect you are dealing with an infestation, McCauley Services is here to help. You can count on our team to locate the colony and implement the best possible solution, flushing termites from your property in no time.
Offering Wood Applied Pretreatments
If you are constructing a new home or business, McCauley Services offers professional wood applied termite pretreatments. Once the wooden frame is up and the roof is installed, our team applies a top-quality, odorless termite pretreatment to the frame. This is completed before the insulation is installed because we want to thoroughly treat the frame.
This preventative service is an easy, effective way to treat the termite’s food source before they arrive. To ensure your property is thoroughly treated, we apply our treatment 24 inches up from the slab and are sure to treat bath traps and crawlspaces as well.
