Termite FAQ

Are Termites Dangerous?

While termites are notorious for wreaking havoc on homes and other structures, the majority of termites pose little direct danger to humans. Although some termites may bite or sting if agitated, this is rare. However, their destruction of plant matter and wood that make up people's homes and businesses can have costly consequences. So, while the infestation itself may not be as hazardous to your health as another pest may be, it can be dangerous to the structural integrity of your property if left untreated.  

What Do Termites Eat?

Termites pose a threat to the structure of your home, as their main diet is wood and other cellulose based materials, including plants, paper products, cotton, some fabrics, and cardboard, as well as dead plant material. There are a few different types of termites, though the most common termites in Rhode Island and Massachusetts make their nests in the soil around your home.

What are the Most Common Types of Termites in Rhode Island?

Subterranean termites are common throughout Rhode Island and Massachusetts. These termites build their colonies in the soil near your home but feed on nearby wood and plant materials on the ground. Other kinds of termites, like dampwood or drywood termites, nest in wood as well as feast on it. 

Our team will help you identify exactly what kind of termite you are facing and provide solutions that work for you and your situation. Depending on what kind of termite you are dealing with, our Providence termite removal team will deploy certain techniques to treat your infestation. 

How Do I Know if I Have Termites?

It can be difficult to identify a termite infestation on your own. However, there are some signs that you can keep an eye out for. The signs listed below are a good indication that termites are lurking somewhere in or around your home. If you are seeing damage in your Providence home, give us a call right away! 

Signs of Termites:

  • A swarm of winged insects in your home or yard
  • Cracked or bubbling paint in your home
  • Discarded wings from swarming insects
  • Mud tubes on walls or in crawl spaces
  • Wooden structures that sound hollow 

Termite damage can be much more severe than it may appear to the naked eye. Our pest control experts will conduct a thorough assessment of your home to locate the source of the infestation before we provide options to treat your termite problems. 

How to Prevent a Termite Infestation

Termites, though small, can wreak havoc on your home if left unchecked. These silent destroyers can cause extensive damage to wooden structures, leading to costly repairs. Prevention is key to avoiding a termite infestation and safeguarding your property. By taking proactive measures, you can significantly reduce the risk of these pests infiltrating your home. 

Here are some effective strategies to prevent a termite infestation:

  • Schedule regular inspections: Arrange for professional termite inspections at least once a year to detect any signs of infestation early on.
  • Maintain proper ventilation: Ensure adequate ventilation in crawl spaces and attics to reduce moisture buildup, as termites thrive in damp environments.
  • Keep wood away from the house: Store firewood, lumber, and other wooden materials at least 20 feet away from your home's foundation.
  • Seal cracks and crevices: Seal any cracks or openings in your home's exterior to prevent termites from gaining access.
  • Trim vegetation: Trim bushes, shrubs, and trees away from the house to eliminate potential pathways for termites to enter.
  • Monitor moisture levels: Repair leaky pipes, faucets, and HVAC units promptly to prevent excess moisture, which attracts termites.
  • Use termite-resistant materials: Consider using termite-resistant materials such as pressure-treated wood or composite materials for construction projects.
