Termites might not be seen, but it doesn’t mean the insects aren’t there. Homeowners have to be aware of the looming threat.
The University of Florida estimates there’s 3 to 6 colonies on an average acre of ground in Florida. Unfortunately, you can only prevent against subterranean termites, not drywood termites. The damage drywood termites will do over a period of a few years subterranean termites can do in a few months.
There are a couple of ways to treat a home for subterranean termites. There is a liquid spraying option. However, those treatments require more applications. We recommend the HexPro baiting system. It is a preventive measure that inserts a baiting system into the ground that attracts and kills colonies.
