Coral Springs Termite Prevention
The southern United States experiences heavy termite activity. The region’s climate is the perfect environment for termite colonies. Activity is particularly high in areas near the coast, like Coral Springs, Florida. The city of 130,059 people is only a few miles inland from the Atlantic coast, which makes it prime termite territory. For area residents, Coral Springs termite prevention is always a priority.
At Apex, we’ve been serving Florida from coast to coast since 1985. We use the most advanced pest control methods and top-of-the-line equipment to help homeowners prevent termite infestations. Our highly experienced technicians can help prevent any type of Florida termite.
- Subterranean Termites: As their name suggests, these termites live in underground colonies. Since colonies can have millions of individuals, it’s no surprise that subterranean termites are the most destructive type of termite. Eastern subterranean termites and Cuban subterranean termites are native to the area. Invasive varieties of subterranean termites (Formosan, Asian, and West Indian) are also present.
- Drywood Termites: Unlike subterranean termites, the drywood variety doesn’t need contact with soil. They like to live in dry wood and can be found infesting picture frames, furniture, and doors.
- Dampwood Termites: Water-damaged wood is a favorite home of dampwood termites. Leaky pipes or damaged roofs can create ideal conditions for these pests. That’s why it’s so important to repair water damage right away.
- Conehead Termites: These invasive termites first arrived in the United States in 2001. They’ve been spotted in Broward County, so Coral Springs residents must be on high alert. With cream bodies and dark-brown, cone-shaped heads, these pests are easy to identify. If you see them, contact Apex right away to help control their spread.
Each type of termite is attracted to different conditions. To prevent infestations of each type, we use the skills and experience we’ve amassed over the past three decades. We have what it takes to keep your home free of damaging termites. Keeping termites away should never be a do-it-yourself venture due to the complexity involved.
