Why do I have them?

In soil, termites will forage for cellulose material found in plants. Typically you can unearth termites in the mulch surrounding your home or in a nearby wood pile. When soil conditions and temperatures are good for termite activity, colonies can develop near the foundation of your home. As termites forage for food in the soil, they often enter homes through small cracks (1/16 inch wide or less). Once inside they will continue for forage for food and inside the home, the food will typically be wood. This wood can be any structural timber around the foundation, behind walls, in ceilings and in many areas that may go unnoticed for months or years.

General Facts:

In Utah we have the subterraneantermites. They live in large social colonies of 60,000 to 250,000 members and feed on the cellulose debris found in leaf litter, wood, and in dung. While termites and not directly harmful to humans their ability to consume wood can cause massive amounts of damage to buildings and structures if left untreated.

The three most recognizable forms (castes) of the eastern subterranean termite are the swarmer’s (winged reproductive), soldiers and workers. The swarmer’s are about 3/8 inch long including wings, dark brown to almost black and have 2 pairs of translucent (slightly milky to slightly smoky) wings. The front and hind wings are of equal size. Soldiers are about 1/4 inch long and have an elongated, amber-colored head armed with long jaws. The body is translucent white and the legs are rather short. Workers are 3/16 to 1/4 inch long, translucent white with a nearly round amber head and have rather short legs.

How do I get rid of Termites?

Getting rid of termites is not easy because of the size and location of the underground colonies. Termites can forage far below the soil for food and will create underground colonies with a series of tunnels and passageways. The termites will mark food sources with a pheromone trail so the other members of the colony can follow a path. The most effective termite control solution is based on careful inspection, observation, and follows up. The final treatment needs to successfully eradicate the entire colony, stopping termite foraging at its source.

Prevention Tips: Although it is impossible to completely prevent termites from entering the typical home, the following steps will help in preventing future infestations:

All wood-to-soil contact must be eliminated

Maintain proper drainage around your property, as moist soil will attract termites

Keep wood structures, fence posts, wooden sheds, decks, play sets, firewood piles, and other wood sources at least 10 to 15 feet from the home.

Termites will be attracted decaying mulch, if possible remove mulch annually and replace it with new mulch.
