Subterranean Termites: What You’re Up Against & What to Look For
The winged reproductive versions of these termites are shiny black, and the usually have a pair of equally sized long wings that are attached to the last two thoracic segments. The soldiers are wingless with white bodies, they have rectangular yellow-brown heads that are twice as long as their width, and they have large mandibles that lack teeth. The workers are smaller and are also white-bodied.
Colonies are usually located in the soil, and from there the workers construct mud tubes to reach the structural wood where then can feed. Colonies are always connected to the soil and/or close to a moisture source. Termite workers prefer to feed on hard woods and sap woods, so they can be found in Douglas fir flooring as well as oak hard wood flooring. They are usually detected in crawl spaces, where mud tubes become visible as they move out of the soil and up into the mud seal and floor joists. These mud tubes and other signs can also be detected in garages, adjacent hot water heaters, heating units, and the cold joint where concrete floors meet the concrete stem wall of the foundation.

More About Our Termite Extermination Treatment
No other termite control system has ever achieved such a high level of effectiveness as the one that we use. It is quite simply the most effective and the fastest treatment for completely eliminating termite populations. It is made from a revolutionary new non-repellent, or “undetectable” chemical technology treatment. That means termites cannot see, smell, taste, or avoid it. Instead, they contact, ingest, and share it with their nest mates. This is in sharp contrast to older liquid termite controls, which rely on repellent barriers that termites can find breaks in or avoid completely.
Better Than Bait & Without the Wait
The product’s transfer effect is unique because termites not directly exposed to the treated area will be controlled as they come into contact with affected termites. This means you’ll see its effects on termites in one to three days, with most species being controlled within the first week after the treatment, and 100% of them will be eliminated within three months.
Bait can take years to control a termite colony. The products we use begin working immediately to wipe out termites inside of and immediately surrounding your home. It is the most effective and the fastest at completely eliminating termite populations, up to six times faster than bait systems.

“Over the years I’ve used this service repeatedly for pest control services. They usually send a text informing me the day before of a pest service, but I always call them directly to schedule a specific time so I can have my garage and shed open, and ensure that my home’s crawl space is also inspected. My rodent problem is resolved and I encourage others to use Pest Stop as this company provides exceptional service at a reasonable price.”Eddie M.
