Signs of a Termite Infestation
Termites are sneaky pests and spend most of their lives hidden out of sight, so it’s unlikely you’ll actually see a termite infestation. That doesn’t mean it isn’t there, however!
To protect your home, keep an eye out for signs of an infestation such as:
- Discarded wings from swarmers.
- Bucking or excessively squeaky floors.
- Mud tubes on the outside of your foundation.
- Peeling paint that resembles water damage.
- A maze-like pattern in furniture or floorboards.
What is Termidor?
Termidor is the number one termite defense product on the market today. Termidor works by creating a “transfer effect” that allows termites that come in contact with the product to spread it to other termites they come in contact with, eventually leading to the entire colony being eliminated.
Anchor Environmental is proud to offer Termidor termite control services in Charleston and the surrounding areas. Our team of certified professionals has the knowledge and experience necessary to properly apply this industry-leading product to your home or business, ensuring that your property is protected from these destructive pests.
Defense Against Subterranean and Drywood Termites
There are two main types of termites found in South Carolina, the subterranean and the drywood termite. While they might seem similar, each species requires its own unique treatment.
What are Subterranean Termites?
Subterranean termites live underground in colonies of about two million. Each colony has a queen that can lay thousands of eggs per day. Worker termites are responsible for finding food, which includes wood and cellulose. To move around safely and without drying out, these termites create mud tubes.
What are Drywood Termites?
Drywood termites live deep inside hardwood, like the lumber found inside the structure of your home. This makes it especially difficult to locate these termites. These colonies have no worker case. Instead, the work is done by immature termites before they reach adulthood. They can easily be spread by moving a piece of infested furniture or even a picture frame.
