Termites. Just the mention of the word makes most homeowners shudder. That’s because they have a reputation for causing some serious damage. It is estimated that 600,000 homes in the United States fall victim to these small, wood-destroying pests each year. At Accuracy Plus Termite Control, we are committed to lowering that number one home at a time, and we’re starting here, in Los Angeles.
Know your enemy
Let’s face it, termites are extremely good at what they do. Subterranean termite colonies have a highly organized system and work together to find food, water, and shelter. In general, they organize themselves into three separate teams to get the job done.
- Workers – worker termites are the ones that do the damage. They build termite tubes for the colony and feed on cellulose found in wood. They tend to be white in color, soft-bodied, wingless.
- Soldiers – soldier termites defend the colony against ants and other species of termites. They look similar to worker termites, but are distinguishable by their brownish-colored head and jaws.
- Reproduction – reproduction termites, also known as swarmer termites or swarmers, are winged adult termites that are dark in color.
