subterranean termites near hawaii home

Every year, the pest industry takes part in Termite Awareness Week. And nowhere is termite awareness more important right here in our Hawaii service area. The tropical climate gives termites everything they need to thrive. So please consider taking part in Termite Awareness Week, which falls on March 12-18 of 2017.

Termite Facts You Can Share

  • There is nothing quite as heartbreaking as finding out that termites have been feeding on the support structure of your home for years.

  • These silent destroyers are not generally covered by insurance policies, and they are able to damage a home beyond repair.

  • Spring is when termite swarmers are most likely to be seen. If you see swarmers on your exterior walls, it is vital to have a pest professional do a detailed inspection.

  • Termite swarmers are not usually a sign of an impending infestation. Most often, they are a sign of a current infestation that is about to get worse.

  • Formosan subterranean termites are the most destructive termites in the United States. Some have labeled these as super-termites.

  • Hawaii has had Formosan subterranean termites since as early as 1869.

  • Formosan subterranean termites are considered to be the most economically damaging pests in Hawaii, despite their limited distribution.

  • Subterranean termites come up from the ground and feed inside the wood of a structure. For this reason, they can feed for years without being detected.

  • While not as destructive as subterranean termites, drywood termites don't just damage homes, they also damage the belongings inside a home. If you have antique furniture, or some other precious wooden heirloom, termite protection is vital.

  • Termite damage can be prevented. There are many eco-friendly, effective termite solutions that can keep your home and your belongings safe.

  • Termite control can be as simple as treating one piece of furniture, or an entire warehouse structure.

  • Preventative service is better than reactive service. Once termites get into a structure and start to do damage, it can be hard to track that damage down and fix it.

  • Termite swarmers are black with white wings. If you see winged insects with prominent white wings crawling on your interior or exterior walls this spring, call a professional pest control company immediately.
