How to get rid of this?.
To get rid of pest problem under control, inspection is the first and foremost step.
Looking at a single termite, it certainly doesn’t look dangerous or menacing, but a whole colony of them can inflict serious structural damage on a home in a fairly short period of time. Termites are known as “silent destroyers” because of their ability to chew through wood, flooring and even wallpaper undetected. Each year, termites cause about $5 billion in property damage.
As the ground warms across the country, from the South up to the North, termite populations emerge in search of a new structure to invade. They send their explorers, also referred to as swarmers, in search of hospitable habitats such as homes that may have sustained damage during the winter months due to rain or snow. Because swarmers have such a similar appearance to that of a winged or flying ant, many homeowners may dismiss them as such upon finding them inside their home – a big mistake. If swarmers determine your home to be their perfect home, it’s a safe bet the rest of their colony will follow.
Although there are about 2,000 known termite species in the world, the following present the biggest threat to homeowners in the U.S.:
