Signs of a Termite Infestation

It can be difficult to determine if you need a termite treatment without the help of a professional pest control expert. However, there are a few signs that may indicate a termite infestation and the need for treatment:

  1. Presence of mud tubes: Termites use mud tubes to travel between their colony and the wood they are feeding on. If you notice mud tubes on the walls or foundation of your home, it may be a sign of a termite infestation.
  2. Wood damage: Termites feed on wood from the inside out, so it can be difficult to spot the damage until it is severe. However, if you notice small holes or tunnels in wood or hollow-sounding wood, it may be a sign of a termite infestation.
  3. Swarmers: Termite swarmers are winged termites that emerge from the colony to mate and start new colonies. If you see swarmers or their shed wings around your home, it may be a sign of a termite infestation.
  4. Frass: Termite droppings, also known as frass, can be found near termite infestations. Frass looks like small piles of wood-colored pellets.

If you notice any of these signs, it is recommended to contact a professional pest control expert to conduct a thorough inspection and determine if a Sentricon termite treatment is necessary.

Eco-Friendly Bait Stations

We are an Authorized Operator of the Sentricon® System in which we place monitoring stations outside the home and use termite baits to eliminate the termites once they enter the stations.

We used to offer two types of termite treatments⁠ — Sentricon and Termidor. Termidor® termiticide/insecticide is a professional termite defense product effective on native subterranean termites, Formosan termites, and drywood termites.

Due to our dedication to going green, we’ve made the executive decision to discontinue our Termidor termite treatment option. Although effective, Termidor uses strong chemicals that can be harmful to plants and animals. Sentricon is just as effective and is considered more environmentally friendly than most conventional methods. We treat termites while remaining eco-friendly.

Termite Damage is No Joke!

Subterranean termites are by far the most destructive termite species. The hard, saw-toothed jaws of termites work like shears and are able to bite off extremely small fragments of wood, one piece at a time. Over time, they can collapse a building entirely, meaning possible financial ruin for a homeowner.

You also need to be on the lookout for drywood termites and large termite colonies. If you suspect a termite infestation, contact a Gunter pest exterminator about a subterranean termite treatment.

Other types of termites that people don’t always know or think about are flying termites, dampwood termites, and worker termites. Our best termite pest control takes care of all of the above.

We provide local and trusted Kansas City termite exterminators & pest control in KCMO, St. Joseph, Missouri, and the Lawrence, Kansas areas. If you want affordable termite treatment or treatment for other pests such as bed bugs, spiders, or rodent control, call us today for an appointment for your home or business.
