Pests We Treat : Termites

Termites are dangerous pests that can severely damage the structure of your home or building. Termites' main diet is wood, and because buildings use wood in the structure, they are an excellent place for them to get food. Because of their strong jaws, termites can eat and tunnel through the foundation of your building. If the termite infestation is left untreated, this can result in a collapse.

The elimination techniques will differ depending on the type of termite infestation. That is where My Pest Pros comes to help. Our technicians perform a thorough inspection of your building and quickly work to get rid of them. Contact us today to treat your termite problem.

How to Identify Termites

Termites are similar in appearance to ants. However, unlike ants, they do not have a distinctive head and body area. Instead, the termite is the same width from the top of the head to its bottom.

Worker termites that cause damage to homes and buildings are typically white in color.

Winged termites, which are likely the ones that you will find in your home, are typically red/brown in color, although winged termites can be black. These flying termites, known as termite swarmers, are a sign that a termite colony is growing and reproducing.

Signs you may have a termite infestation include finding the discarded wings of termites, stuck windows/doors, mud tubes on the outside of your home, tiny holes in your wall, and termite droppings. If you have reason to believe that termites are infesting your home, call the team at My Pest Pros to take care of it for you.

  • Get rid of moisture around the foundation and crawlspace of your home.
  • Prevent wood from touching the building.

  • Seal up any cracks in windows and doorframes.

My Pest Pros has provided quality service to us for several years. Each technician, especially Chris, provides excellent service and suggestions for solving any problems we might have. We definitely recommend them.

Anne PriorFairfax, VA

The technician handling our property, Mr. Hargrove, is obviously quite capable. He has, from the first visit, explained what he was doing and fully answered all our questions. The results of his efforts are evident in the fact that the latest visit provided evidence that the infestation was not spreading and also none of the "bait" had been consumed since his last visit. Thank you for providing us with the services of this fine gentleman. We would have no problems recommending him and your firm to friends and neighbors.

Chris came out to my house in a timely manner. He showed me where mice had been eating the bait in one of the traps. I appreciate learning more about rodent control. Chris was informative and polite. Thanks.

The young man that came by my house today to do a treatment was "excellent!" He noticed in my backyard there were ant hills and he immediately sprayed that area. All I can say was keep up the good work Sinjay.
