Orlando Termite Control

Termites cause damage to homes all across the country, and Florida is no exception. Homeowners dread the discovery of termites near or in their homes, and for good reason; the tiny insects can cause mass damage in a limited amount of time. This is why it’s important you contact an expert from Apex Pest Control to perform Orlando termite control at the first sign of a termite problem.

For termites, swarm season comes much earlier in South Florida. North Florida experiences swarm season later than Orlando.

  • Drywood Termites: Formosan termites are not as prevalent in Central Florida as they are in South Florida. However, drywood termites infest older homes in areas like Downtown Orlando and Winter Park. Homes near old oak trees and those that date back to the 20s have major drywood termite issues.

It’s also important that homeowners understand that in Florida, there are three main types of termites: Eastern Subterranean, Drywood, and Formosan, each is different from the others though all are destructive in their own way.

  • Eastern Subterranean termites are pests to watch out for. If disturbed, they will often leave an infestation site and take up residence in a new location, causing more damage to another part of your house. They can create huge nests, containing millions of members. They are also known for chewing through electrical cabling, causing power failures and fire hazards. For these reasons, if you see them, it’s critical that you don’t disturb them. Instead, call the Orlando termite control experts at Apex Pest Control. We’ll send someone out to take care of your termite problem right away.
  • Drywood termites, as their name implies, tend to show up in wood that has been dried, such as timbers or furniture. Since they prefer dried wood, they can be easily transported into homes, and because they stay hidden inside wood, they tend to go undiscovered until they’ve ruined whatever wooden object they’re occupying.
  • Formosan termites are another kind of subterranean termite. These creatures are just as bad as their Eastern-variety cousins. Formosan termites are now the most common kind of termite found in the United States and collectively cause billions of dollars of damage each year.

Fortunately, all it takes for homeowners to spot termite infestations is a little education. Telltale signs of termites include discarded wings, droppings, mud tubes, and weakening or bubbling wood surfaces.

Over-the-counter pest control solutions won’t do anything to deter termites from invading your home. They may kill some of the more obvious insects, but they won’t stop an infestation. Our Orlando termite control professionals have the knowledge and experience to blend pest control treatments that specifically targets your home’s unique needs. We can provide you with safe, effective treatment so you can rest assured that your home and family are protected.
