Termites are the bane of most Central Florida home and business owner’s existence. In an established community like the close-knit area of Edgewood, houses can be particularly vulnerable to the ravages of these wood consuming insects. Homes are close to the heart in Edgewood, and any danger to them needs to be met with thorough and professional Edgewood termite control; the very type that Apex has been practicing for nearly 30 years in the local area.

Our termite control services extend behind simple extraction after a problem arises; we want to see the road ahead and stop any possible termite problem before they even exist. We can accomplish this because of the depth of knowledge we have as well as the innovative nature of the termite technology that we deploy.

Beyond the types of treatment, it’s also important to understand the enemy and its habits. Termites are active year round in Central Florida, but certain season’s still see spikes in activity depending on location. Only highly experienced termite experts will have a good handle on just when these potentially dangerous times are.

Not only that, but to treat termites in Edgewood, you need to know the types of the insect that you will commonly face. There are indeed some species distinct to this beautiful community:

  • Eastern Subterranean Termites: One of the more common and frequently treated in the local area, this variety can be difficult to detect because of the way they access your home. Often traveling through mud tubes and underground, they can eat away at your home for a long while before any type of problem is truly recognized.
  • Drywood Termites: Drywood termites tend to be found in older homes and communities: exactly like those located in the city limits of Edgewood. They prefer aged wood and often, because of this very age, can eat through tremendous amounts of wood very quickly.
  • Powderpost Termites: Often found in outdoor structures and places alongside a home, powderpost termites are named for their ability to turn wood to powder. They do so in a variety of seasons and against a large backdrop of different wood types.
  • Formosan Termites: This variety is rather rare in the local area (and is much more commonly found in South Florida) but is not to be overlooked. This is a voracious eater of wood that can form gigantic colonies.
