Termite Control in is A Specialty Here at the Wildlife X Team

Besides University entomology departments, we here at the Wildlife X Team are also interested in termite control in Fort Worth. Both university professors and termite control specialists receive numerous calls about the household insect. In fact, most pest control professionals and colleges receive more calls over termites than any other insect.

Termite Damage


We know that termite control in Fort Worth is important as termites cause damage in the billions of dollars annually. The insects not only feed on wood, but also tear up insulation, books, paper, pool liners, and filtration systems. Termites can also cause harm to shrubs and living trees. Woody plants that are in decline are also a food source for these insects’ insatiable appetites. Indeed, termite control in Fort Worthis an activity that has a significant impact on homeowners. Knowing that these winged creatures are feasting on such a large investment is not only financially devastating, but also emotionally trying.

A Sure Sign of Infestation


We at the Wildlife X Teamnormally obtain calls about termite infestations more frequently during the spring, or from March through May. At these times of year, termite control in Fort Worth becomes a priority. Swarmers among the insects frequently appear inside homes to begin colonies. If the winged insects are seen inside a home, then it is a sure sign that the structure is infested.

After their so-called dance, the swarmers drop to the ground and shed their wings. Subterranean termites pair-off to begin colonies in the soil. While swarmers that are seen indoors will not eat wood and seldom survive, they still provide a clue that an infestation has occurred. In fact, discovering any winged termites inside your house is the main way to tell that you are in need of termite control in Fort Worth.

The Differences between Ants and Termites


Interestingly, some people will confuse ants with winged termites. To tell the difference, look at the antennae displayed by each. Termites feature straight antennae, while ants have antennae that are elbow-shaped. Termites display wings of equal size while ants have forewings that are longer than their hind wings.

Mud Tubes


Inside a home, swarmers are usually seen around doors and windows as they are attracted to light. Other signs of an infestation include mud tubes, around the diameter of pencil, that extend over foundations or along the base of a house. These tubes are used as tunnels, and lead to the insects’ colonies underground.

Because they are cryptic creatures, termites can cause a great deal of damage before they are discovered. As a result, any suspicion of a termite infestation should be addressed immediately. We at the Wildlife X Team can alleviate any fears or worries in this respect. Our exterminating techniques ensure a successful outcome in getting rid of the pests.
