Subterranean Termite Inspection & Control

There are a couple of different reasons why AmeriGuard Pest Defense is called out for a subterranean termite inspection. These reasons are as follows:

  • Termite Evidence
  • Escrow Inspection required by the lender when selling or refinancing real estate

In some cases, a homeowner finds evidence of subterranean termites. Subterranean termites live underground in the soil or in moist secluded areas above-ground. Subterranean termites constructed enclosed tunnels or mud tubes that allow them to travel and find food sources without being exposed to air.

These subterranean termites were using books on an interior bookshelf as a food source. Since books are made out of cellulose material (paper), they fit right in to the subterranean termite diet. The homeowners had no idea that mud tubes existed behind their collection of old library books. Once they moved the books and found termite evidence, they called AmeriGuard Pest Defense for a subterranean termite inspection.

Subterranean termites can lurk in inconspicuous places where you least expect to find them, but as you can see above, this species of termites need moist soil to survive and are usually found in damp conditions near cellulose material, such as the wood members of a structure.

In the below video, subterranean termites were discovered in a shed floor during a termite inspector.
