Subterranean Termite Behavior
The main species of termite you will encounter in Dunwoody is the Eastern Subterranean Termite. Subterranean termites require moisture to survive. They nest in the ground and once they gain entrance into your home, they remain hidden.
Termite colonies are organized into a caste system of workers, soldiers, and reproductives. A termites every action and instinct is for the protection and propagation of the colony.
The Workers are the termites that leave the nest and find the wood in your home. These are the termites that cause damage. They travel between your home and their underground nest using a vast system of tunnels and shelter or mud tubes. They carry food back to the nest and feed and groom the other termites.
A soldiers primary duty is to defend the underground nest from invading armies of ants.
Alates, or Reproductives, have the primary duty to establish a new colony. When a colony is large enough and mature, swarmers will fly from the nest by the thousands. These termites with reproductive capacity then lose their wings, mate and attempt to start a new colony. The presence of wings from a swarm indicates a mature termite colony is already nearby.
Subterranean Termite Treatment
At Nextgen Pest Solutions, we understand termite biology and behavior. So our treatment methods work using the termites instincts and behavior to their own detriment.
Subterranean termite treatments must access the termites in the soil and kill the entire colony. This is done by “transfer effect.” Whether you choose to install termite bait stations or opt for a soil/barrier treatment, the termites will contact and ingest the termiticide. They will then bring some back to the colony. Since the workers feed and groom the soldiers and reproductives, the insecticide is passed around the colony like a virus, and results in the elimination of the entire colony.
