Subterranean termites can cause significant damage to homes and structures if not properly prevented. These insects create colonies beneath the soil and can go undetected for years, silently eating away at the wooden frames of your home or building — this is why thorough prevention is key, and we can make that happen.
HomeTeam Pest Defense offers professional termite control services to help protect your space from subterranean termite infestations. We offer installation of Sentricon® Systems with Always Active™ technology for existing homes and newly constructed structures to secure your protection against subterranean termites.
We also recommend our Borate termite wood treatment for homes that are still under construction to achieve another layer of protection against subterranean termites and other wood-damaging insects, such as wood boring beetles and carpenter ants.
Subterranean termites are small, pale insects ranging from 1/8 to 1 inch in size. They have straight antennae, short legs, and a wide waist, distinguishing them from other termite species. These termites live in underground colonies, and they require moisture to survive. Subterranean termites construct mud tubes, which they use to travel above ground and protect themselves from dehydration.
If not dealt with promptly, subterranean termites have the potential to cause extensive damage to homes and structures. Their diet consists of cellulose, which is present in wood, paper, and other organic materials. As they feed, the wooden systems of a building can weaken over time, resulting in expensive repairs and potential safety risks.
Subterranean termites are known to be silent destroyers, as they can cause significant damage to a home or building without showing signs of their presence.
However, there are certain signs that homeowners can look out for to detect the presence of a subterranean termite infestation:
Aside from these tell-tale signs, homeowners should also be aware of the conditions that attract subterranean termites, such as wood debris and excessive moisture, around the foundation of their homes. Subterranean termites are attracted to moist environments, so check for any areas of moisture in and around the home. These can include leaky pipes, damp basements or crawl spaces, or areas where water tends to pool.
Annual termite inspections by a professional termite control company, such as HomeTeam Pest Defense, can help identify any signs of termite activity and prevent further damage to your home or structure. Early detection and treatment are crucial to eliminate termite infestations and protect the property from costly repairs and potential safety hazards.
If you notice any signs of subterranean termite activity, contact us at HomeTeam Pest Defense right away for an inspection.
In addition to structural damage, subterranean termite infestations can negatively impact a property’s value. Homebuyers are often hesitant to purchase a home with a history of termite damage or active infestations, making it harder to sell the property.
Furthermore, termite infestations can be costly to treat and repair. The longer an infestation goes undetected, the more damage it can cause, resulting in even higher repair costs.
If you suspect a subterranean termite infestation or any active termite activity in your vicinity, take preventative measures and seek professional termite treatment services as soon as possible to eliminate or prevent any infestation from worsening.

Subterranean termites can enter homes and structures through cracks in the foundation, gaps in windows and doors, and even through plumbing and electrical entry points.

Subterranean termites can cause significant damage to homes and structures if left untreated.
