What Do Termites Look Like?
There are 3,106 known species of termites in the world, and “only” 83 of the species do significant damage to wooden structures. Florida’s warm, humid climate is a termite’s idea of paradise, and termites are certainly not shy about making their presence known in Pompano Beach. However, residents might have trouble telling the species apart. Termites are usually about an inch in length and dark brown in appearance. Dampwood termites love damp, decaying wood in southern Florida and have a dark brown head and lighter body. The more common subterranean termites have a whitish body with brown markings on its head.
Tenting Vs. Chemical Treatments
Regardless of the species, residential termites are usually removed by either tenting or chemical methods. Chemical methods (spotting) are generally used for lighter infestations. Technicians place chemical combinations in termite occupied areas throughout the house. The result is less residential interruption and a more attractive appearance to the home during treatment. Tenting is used for severe infestations, and this process involves covering the entire residence with fabric and applying chemicals to the entire structure beneath. It is not possible for occupants to remain in a home during a tenting procedure.
