What are Termites?

Termites are small, winged insects that live in colonies underground or build nests in wood that they hollow out. Termites eat cellulose, the main component of wood, paper, cardboard, and other plant-based materials, making them extremely destructive to homes.

Why Are Termites a Problem?

Why are Termites a Problem?

Eastern subterranean termites eat the soft inner wood of the timber in your house, creating honeycomb-like hollows and leaving only the basic outline of a board. This severely weakens the structural integrity and requires costly repair service. These pests only need as little as six months to cause major damage. Regular inspections and preventative measures can save you money in the long run. Contact us to learn more about our services.

Why Are Termites Hard to Spot?

Why are Termites hard to spot?

Termites live underground and shy away from light, which, in addition to their size, makes it hard to see them. Swarms of termites can also be confused as swarms of ants in the spring and summer.

Termite Control FAQs

How Can You Tell If You Have Termites?

A temporary swarm of insects in or around your house may be termites. Other signs of these pests include mud tunnels near walls, foundations, wood beams, door frames, siding or crawl spaces, cracked or bubbling paint inside your house, wood that sounds hollow when you tap on it, and discarded wings from swarmers. Contact Champion to learn more and request service if you notice any of these signs.

What Attracts Termites to My House?

Termites are attracted to moist areas, like soil near the foundation or a crawl space, and untreated wood. Termites may enter your house by eating through exposed wood where your house meets the ground, through cracks in the floors, or even when you bring firewood inside.

How Fast Can Termites Destroy a House?

The eastern subterranean termite in Ohio can cause major damage in as little as six months. The size of the termite colony in your house as well as the number of colonies affect how much damage is done, and how quickly. Contact Champion to learn more and request service if you notice termites.

Can You Do Termite Control Yourself?

Attempting a do-it-yourself termite treatment can cause termites to scatter throughout your walls, where they’ll expand their colonies, build new nests and cause more damage. A pest and termite control company has the proper tools and services for exterminating termites, so it’s best to leave the work to professionals.
