No one wants to hear the word Termites when it comes to your home or commercial property. Termites can be a serious issue, especially if left unchecked for a long period of time. Unfortunately, termites thrive under homes, and in structural areas of a home where people rarely visit, leaving them to multiply and continue their destructive behavior for sometimes years. Many times homeowners become aware they have a potential termite issue when having an inspection completed on their home, or some other type of contracted work such as crawl space work, or some other structural job.

Termite extermination and removal can be tricky as finding all colonies, correct treatment, and consistent follow-up are essential to ensuring  these wood destroying pests are removed for good.

This page has been compiled to answer these frequent questions so you can be better informed.

Termite Infestation Resources & Information

Common termites here in Seattle and the pacific northwest generally are one of two species–Subterranean Termites or Dampwood Termites. However because these pests have different life stages, appearances between these two species can vary widely. Referencing our Termite Library will help as we’ve provided pictures of common stages homeowners may encounter with these pests.

Seeing flying termites, commonly known as Swarmers, does not mean you have a termite infestation. During termite swarming season, queen termites fly off in search of building a new colony. Swarming is a sign that there’s a mature termite colony somewhere close to your home.
