Understanding the Dangers of Termite Damage 

These menacing pests are known for their destructive behavior, consuming wood from the inside out and compromising the structural integrity of your property. If left unchecked, these pesky creatures can cause considerable damage, leading to substantial repair costs that are often not covered by insurance policies.

Beyond the financial implications, there are other risks associated with untreated termite infestations: 

  • The structural damage caused by these pests can lead to unsafe living and working conditions. For instance, termite damage can cause floors to buckle, walls to bulge, and ceilings to collapse, potentially putting occupants at physical risk.
  • Termite infestations can negatively impact your property's market value. A history of termite infestations can deter potential buyers, making it difficult to sell property at a desirable price.
  • The presence of termites can also lead to the growth of mold, as they create moisture while eating and living in wood. Mold not only further damages wood but can also pose health hazards, including respiratory problems and allergic reactions. 

Our Termite Control Solutions

PestBear uses both a non-repellant liquid and a monitoring system to detect, pinpoint, and kill not only the termites present in your home, but also termites at the main colony. In addition, a complete termite baiting system will be installed every 15–20 feet around your home, which will be checked every 90 days upon your quarterly termite services.

PestBear Offers the Following Termite Removal Methods:

  • We have wood diffusion technology that is unique to the termite services industry. By using non-repellent liquid and borates, we are able to permanently diffuse a product into your current wooden structure. The process does not require you to move out of your home or cause damage like existing tent fumigation methods. Best of all, there is a residue left behind in the wood that will stop any possible termite re-infestation for years to come.
  • We also offer a borate filled, energy-efficient Pest Control Insulation. The insulation not only creates a highly-effective barrier to insects, but also keeps your home cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter while keeping the energy bill down. 

Let our specialist come inspect your home to determine which treatment will be the most powerful for your needs.

Types of Termites in Tampa

Drywood Termites

Drywood termites are typically more active during the warmer months, but they remain a threat year-round in Tampa's warm climate. If left untreated, drywood termite infestations can lead to severe property damage as these pests consume wood from the inside out, compromising the structural integrity of your property in the process.

Several key signs may indicate a drywood termite infestation, including:

  • Frass: Frass, also known as termite droppings or debris, frass serves as a telltale sign of their wood consumption. Drywood termite frass typically appears as small, hexagonal pellets.
  • Hollow-sounding wood: Drywood termites consume wood from the inside out, often leaving behind only a thin layer of wood or paint. If wood sounds hollow when tapped, it's a likely indicator of a termite infestation.
  • Shed wings: After termites swarm and find a place to start a new colony, they shed their wings. If you notice tiny, discarded wings around your property, you have termites in your home or on your property.
  • Cracked or distorted paint on wood surfaces: As termites burrow beneath a painted surface, it can cause bubbling or distortion to occur on the surface. This, too, can indicate a termite infestation.
  • Visible termites: Lastly, if you see termites in and around your property, it's a sure sign that you have an infestation.

Early detection and treatment are crucial to preventing extensive damage to your property. If you notice any of the signs we mentioned above, contact our team immediately.

Subterranean Termites

Subterranean termites are active throughout the year, making them a perennial concern. They prefer moist environments and are often found in areas where water tends to collect. If overlooked, subterranean termite infestations can escalate quickly, leading to substantial structural damage and costly repairs.

Subterranean termites, like their drywood counterparts, present a variety of signs that indicate an infestation. 

Here are some common indicators that subterranean termites may have infested your property:

  • Mud tubes: Subterranean termites are particularly known for creating mud tubes, which they use as tunnels from their underground colonies to their food source. These tubes are often found near a property's foundation and are a definitive sign of a termite infestation.
  • Damage to wood in contact with the ground: Subterranean termites prefer to inhabit damp soil and wood that is in contact with the ground. Thus, any damage or decay in such areas is a strong indicator of their presence.
  • Swarmers or discarded wings: Like drywood termites, subterranean termites also swarm, especially in warm weather, and discard their wings near windows or doors.
  • Earthen packing: Unlike drywood termites, subterranean termites may leave behind earthen packing— a form of soil or dirt— around the areas they are infesting.

Just like with drywood termites, immediate action is necessary if you notice any of these signs on your property.
