San Antonio Pest Removal Tip:

How Fast Termite Spread
Just like any living creatures, termites need food to survive. They need to feed on materials that contain cellulose such as wood, cardboards, furnitures, and books. The termites will feed incessantly and can spread up to 150ft from their colony. It will not take too long for the termites to establish their nest in your property that will then be followed by an infestation. Some of the signs of their infestation include mud tubes, termite dust, and hollowed woods.

Ways on How Termites Move Around Your House
Termite workers are always in pursuit for a new source of food. As we mentioned above, they can move at about 150ft away from their colony. Discovering them inside our house can be a frustrating situation. By understanding how these tiny creatures move around your house, you increase the success of eliminating them from your house.

Using Mud Tubes
This is one of the most common ways that they will spread around the house. Mud tubes are an indication of an active infestation of subterranean termite. The tunnels of these termites are made using grass, wood, and soil. They will be sticking this on trees and walls and any place that the termites need to go. The temperature and humidity inside the tube is maintained that allows them to move comfortably. It also keeps them safe from the elements outside.

Moving Through Galleries
Termites can also spread using galleries. This is a sign of a drywood termite infestation. Instead of using mud tubes, they will be moving inside the wood. They will be chewing the wood grain to make galleries. The termites will be spreading on the other wood when the infested wood is connected with other wooden material inside the house. The drywood termite will remain hidden that will make it difficult to determine their presence. You will only notice them once the infested wood has degraded.

Through Cracks
The termites will not be able to chew concrete materials. However, they can still squeeze their body through tiny gaps. They can even build their mud tubes inside the crack that will make it more difficult to spot their presence. Filling up the crack with the appropriate material will prevent the termites from concealing their presence.

Soil and Wood Contact
If the wood is always in contact with the ground, this will make the place hospitable to the termites. The workers that are tasked to forage foods can easily find this. In order to avoid this situation, we advice using treated lumber on the parts of the house that touches the ground constantly.

These are just some of the ways that the termites will spread all over your house. Therefore, they have multiple options on how they can enter your house. Fortunately, you can eliminate these elements by using the right treatment and preventative measures. You should also seek the assistance of the termite controls professionals and listen to their recommended solution. Using untreated wood in your house can increase the probability of infestation.
