What Do Termites Look Like?
Most termites affecting homes in Broward County are quite similar in appearance. There is a possibility you may already be living with these pests and not even realize it. Most termites in this area are dark brown in color and approximately one inch in length. Dampwood termites, which are common in Florida and other humid parts of the country, typically have a dark brown head with a lighter brown body. There is also a species of subterranean termites with an off-white body and a head marked by dark brown accents.
Tenting vs. Chemical Treatments
Chemical treatments and tenting are the most common remedies for treating a termite infestation. Chemical treatments, referred to as spot treatments, involve one of our trained exterminators placing chemicals at various locations inside your home. The chemical treatment is designed to both kill termites that come into contact with it and to repel by making the home less appealing to the insects. A serious infestation that fails to respond to chemical treatments may require tenting. This process requires sealing and spraying every inch of your home. It is necessary for you to find an alternative place to stay during this process.
