- Keep tree limbs cut back away from structures.
- Keep stored firewood away from the foundation walls.
- These guidelines will help keep your home or business ant-free!
- Outside Treatment: The entire foundation, completely around the perimeter of the building, will be treated, from the ground level up approximately four feet. Any trees in the immediate area of the building will be treated around their trunks. Railroad tie walls, prime nesting areas for ants, under decking’s, corner boards, and chimney areas will also be treated.
- Inside Treatment: Our technician will inspect and treat with colorless, odorless, water based chemicals and/or baits along the perimeters of each and every room of the building - including the basement and potential areas where ant nests may occur. The bathrooms, kitchen, under sink areas, inside wall voids, plumbing, and pipe openings will be crack and crevice treated. The application will dry clear, and doesn't stain.

Eastern Subterranean Termite
Scientific Name: Reticulitermes flavipes
The eastern subterranean termite is part of the Rhinotermitidae family, along with other subterranean and some dampwood termites.
Distribution in the U.S.
The eastern subterranean termite is found in three-quarters of the continental United States. It can be found from Maine to Florida.
Eastern subterranean termites live in colonies that range from 60,000 to more than 1 million termites. These termites attack dead wood and occasionally infest living trees or shrubs, though this behavior is more common in Canada than in the U.S.
Do Eastern Subterranean Termites Damage Homes?
This eastern termite can attack man-made structures. Because it is the most widely distributed termite in the U.S., it is likely responsible for the greatest amount of damage to homes and businesses.
Because this termite is subterranean in nature, a home is most vulnerable where there is direct wood-to-ground contact (a common entry point) or where moisture problems exist.
What Do Eastern Subterranean Termites Look Like?
Eastern subterranean termite alates measure 3/8 inch and are dark brown or black. Their wings are lighter colored and somewhat translucent.
Soldiers also are 3/8-inch long and have dark brown, rectangular-shaped heads with dark brown thoraxes.
Eastern Subterranean Termites: soldiers are the ones with the dark heads, workers have white heads.
When Do Eastern Subterranean Termites Swarm?
Eastern subterranean termites typically swarm from February to May, with the earlier swarms taking place in the warmer southern states. In Florida, this termite is known to swarm between October and February. Winter termite swarms also have been found in heated buildings in other regions.
Eastern subterranean termites swarm during the day, often on a warm day following a rain shower.
