As their name suggests, the Western Subterranean Termite is the most common termite for the western part of the United States. This means they can be found in our area at times. However, Richardson Pest Control technicians maintain knowledge of this creature throughout the United States. This allows them to be prepared when/if a foreign pest is introduced to the Richardson, Texas area.
Pest Control & Exterminator: Western Subterranean Termites
This species usually builds its colony underground just below the frost line yet still above the water table.
Western Subterranean Termites enter homes by squeezing through the cracks found in foundations or other building materials. They can squeeze through cracks as small 1/16 of an inch wide.
Their food of choice is the cellulose part of the wood which is found in walls, floors, dressers, tables, etc. Their damage is normally found on the first floor of the home and in the basement. One can find evidence of them in their tunnels and their swarming behavior.
