Termite Control in Utah

Are Termites Terminable?

Termites can be disastrous for the infrastructure of your property, though termites may not seem like a big deal at first, their eating habits and how they work could cause serious structural issues for your property. They’re experts in stealthily chewing through anything that’s made of wood – from drywall to structural beams. Several subterranean species are native to Utah, but their biology and activity are essentially the same.

Because termite damage accrues slowly, and because other pests can appear to present a more urgent and immediate threat to a home or building, many people fail to detect and eliminate termites early on —sometimes costing themselves thousands of dollars of internal damage.

Does a Brick House Need Termite Protection?

Termite damage isn’t exclusive to homes made of wood. Even brick houses are built using wood and other cellulose-based materials throughout the structure.
Because of this, a property built primarily from brick or stone is just as susceptible to a debilitating termite infestation, and it may be even more difficult to notice the termite problem before they’ve had time to whittle away at your home’s structural integrity.
The reality is that your home’s foundation, building materials, and home construction methods make very little difference to a swarm of termites that invade your home and make it their feeding ground.

How Can I Fight a Termite Infestation?

The first step is identifying the location and severity of the termite problem. If you suspect an infestation, get one of our skilled termite control specialist onsite to see for themselves and recommend the best course of action and treatment.

How Can I Know if I Have Termites?

For all their cumulative damage over time, early signs of termite infestations can be inordinately difficult to recognize. Identifying their presence requires examination from a trained termite expert who knows exactly what to look for.

But identification is critical. Termites frequently tunnel hundreds of feet to reach a desired feeding spot. Because they feed on the wood and cellulose-based elements in your home or building, their presence can seriously weaken and erode these materials.

What Is the Structure of a Termite Colony?

The most damaging variety of termites, subterranean termites, are the termites we have in Utah. Subterranean termites live in colonies that form within a particular section of soil.
Each colony is built around a king and queen whose sole purpose is reproduction. Most of the termites that comprise the colony are worker termites who ultimately cause all the damage. Worker termites search for food sources and share their findings with the colony— working 24/7.

What’s the Worst-Case Scenario? How Bad Can Termite Damage Get?

In severe cases over a long period of time, untreated termites can actually transform your home into a structurally unstable piece of real estate.
It is estimated that termites cause more than $5 billion of annual damage in buildings across the United States–more than tornadoes, hurricanes, and fires combined.

Does Utah’s Colder Climate Protect Against Termites?

Termites can infest your home no matter where you live, but their favorite place to call home is the warmth inside. Termites are present in all areas of the United States and as far north as Canada. Unfortunately, cold weather won’t keep them at bay and actually spurs them to burrow deeper into the warmth of your home.
