Types of Termites in Flowery Branch
There are 3 types of termites found in Flowery Branch, Eastern Subterranean Termites, Formossan Termites, and Drywood Termites. Each species of termite raises unique concerns, has different characteristics, and different treatment methods. A termite inspection is the cornerstone of any successful termite outcome. When you call Nextgen Pest Solutions, a well-trained and experienced termite professional will thoroughly inspect your home, identify the species of termite, and educate you with your treatment options.
Eastern Subterranean Termite
Subterranean termites are naturally occurring in soil and assist in the normal decomposition process. In the Southeast United States, every yard likely has a termite colony eating stumps, fallen wood, garden stakes, or a fence post. Subterranean Termites must have contact with the moisture to survive, therefore, they make their nests in the ground. Subterranean Termite colonies can be very large, but generally contain between 60,000 and 1 million termites.
Termites are eusocial insects, they have a caste system creating a division of labor, multiple generations live together in the nest, and they work together to care for their young. Understanding termites’ social structure has enabled us to more effectively eradicate them from homes and businesses.
- Workers build shelter/mud tubes to travel above ground for food, gather the food, bring it back to the colony and feed and groom the others.
- Soldiers main responsibility is defending the colony from invading armies of ants.
- Alates, or reproductives, ensure the growth and propagation of the colony. When a colony is large and mature, thousands of alates “swarmers” will fly from the nest within minutes. These termites fly a short distance, lose their wings, and mate. If they are successful, they will start a new colony.
Thousands of wings from a swarm are often your first indication of a termite infestation. In Flowery Branch, this swarm generally happens between February and May following mild temperature and a rain. If you experience a swarm in your home or business, do not delay. That termite colony is mature and looking to expand. They have likely already caused damage.
Formossan Subterranean Termite
The Formossan Termite is an invasive species of termite that is characterized by the rapid growth of their colonies. They are aggressive eaters and each colony can have millions of termites. However, they are still rare in Georgia; it is believed they come in on railroad ties. The University of Georgia is monitoring the spread and severity of this invasive species and any samples should be sent to the Entomologist at the University. Should your home be unfortunate enough to have a Formossan Termite infestation, our experienced termite professionals can eradicate the colony.
Drywood Termites are not naturally content in Flowery Branch’s climate. However, they are known as the furniture termite. Drywood Termites do not need access to the soil and can live exclusively in the china cabinet in the dining room of your well heated and cooled home. Drywood Termites kick out their fecal matter from the colony. If you see a pile under a table or chair that looks like sawdust or coffee grounds, that piece of furniture may have drywood termites. Depending on the value (including sentimental value) and functionality of the furniture, you may choose to have it treated by our experienced termite specialists.
