Termites in Wood

Dependable Colony Elimination for Avoiding Termite Infestation

Honest Pest Control Inc in Loves Park, Illinois, understands that termite infestations cause billions of dollars' worth of property damage each year and they need to be controlled when they invade man-made structures by a colony elimination process. These pests can attack a home whether it is new or old and it does not matter how it is constructed or where
it is located.

Household Moisture

All termites require specific environmental conditions to survive, and available moisture source is critical to termites. Termites construct tubes (mud tunnels) that pass over exposed areas, and these tubes serve to conceal the termites and provide a moist environment and protect them from their enemies.
Hidden Evidence
Sometimes an active infestation is obvious and other times may be difficult to spot. You’re more likely to discover you have a termite problem by revealing the evidence they leave behind rather than the actual termites themselves.

Insect Comparison
Swarming termites are often confused with flying or swarmer ants but there are three ways to separate a termite from an ant:

First: Termites are broad wasted as opposed to ants that have a very thin waist between the thorax
and the abdomen.

Second: Termite wings are all the same shape and size, with ants the fore-wings are larger, longer
and of different shape than the hind wings.

Third: Termite antennae are straight and the ant antennae are elbowed.
