Subterranean termites are the most damaging insects of wood, and also the most common type of termites in Kansas and Missouri. Their presence is hard to notice, and damage usually is found before they are seen.
Termites and other wood-destroying insects such as carpenter ants and carpenter bees, can cause serious damage to your home. Termites will swarm in the late spring through the fall. They are capable of finding the smallest opening in your home to enter and start building their colony. They only need a space 1/32” wide to enter, so even the smallest crack in a foundation, plumbing entrance, electrical entrance, or even behind your vinyl siding can be an issue. A common theme regarding termites is that it’s not a matter of IF a home will ever have termites, it’s a matter of WHEN!
The NPMA, (National Pest Management Association) recommends that homeowners have their homes inspected for termites by a Certified Licensed Applicator once a year.
