Termites

Often people mistake a termite for a flying ant!

 

The Ant has:

- Elbowed antennae

- Fore wings larger than hind wings

- Constricted waist
 

The Termite has:

 - Beaded antennae

 - Fore and hind wings of equal size

 - Broad waist

 

This is Florida. There are two kinds of homes here: those that have had termites and those that will get them. It’s important to protect the biggest investment you’ll ever make.

Termites are soft-bodied insects with hard jaws used to bite off small fragments of wood. As termites feed on wood, they can cause serious damage to unprotected buildings and other wooden structures. Once termites have entered a building, they do not limit themselves to wood; they also damage paper, cloth, carpets, and other cellulosic materials. No one can see through walls or through wood beams therefore their habit of remaining concealed behind walls and under floors often results in their presence being undetected until there is severe damaged and surface changes occur. 

Custom Pest Solutions will inspect you home to make sure there is no active infestation. We can offer you several protection plans that give you 100% guaranteed coverage from any future termite infestation or damage.

If you have an active infestation, we’ll show you where the termites are destroying wood. We can recommend the most effective type of treatment which will depend on the type of termite, the severity of the infestation, and the location and construction of your home.
