Termites love Florida’s warm weather just as much as humans do. They can survive year-round because of the climate and can cause expensive damage before you become aware of their presence.

It is crucial to take preventative measures to protect your house and family before it is too late. If you are searching for a termite exterminator in Tampa, look no further than the experts at Nvirotect Pest Control Services.

As the industry leader in termite treatment, Nvirotect Pest Control Services’ green pest control in Tampa is the best choice for your home or business.

Subterranean Termites

Subterranean termites are extremely prevalent in Florida and build their colonies deep underground. They are dependent on eating wood and, or, cellulose-containing materials and can cause dangerous structural damage within the wood of your home. Even though they can burrow deep underground, there are signs to look out for if you want to protect your home from termites. Some key signs of termites include mud tubes, droppings that look like tiny wood shavings or sawdust, termite swarms, and broken-off wings.

When treating subterranean termites, our team of expert Service Technicians deploys Sentricon Always Active Subterranean Termite Baiting stations. Nvirotect Pest Control Services’ green pest control in Tampa for subterranean termites also includes baiting stations that can be put in the ground. These little stations have preventative and corrective products inside. This innovative product will only attract and affect the subterranean termites in your home and is the best solution for subterranean termite control in Tampa.

Alternatively, another solution for subterranean termites is to trench and treat your home. At 18 inches deep, we fill it with a liquid barrier that gets spread by termites that walk around the perimeter of your home. This is an extremely effective solution for more severe cases of live termite activity in your structure.

These continuous termite protection solutions may eliminate subterranean termites before you even notice them. Trust the experts at Nvirotect Pest Control Services to guide you for all of your Tampa termite control needs.

Eastern Subterranean

Eastern subterranean termites are the most common in Florida. Their colonies are the most organized of the subterranean termites and are highly functional and destructive. These termites have dark brown to black bodies with white translucent wings.

One way to identify Eastern subterranean termites is with mud tubes built from the ground into building sidings or foundation cracks, sometimes reaching up many stories high. They can go virtually unseen until it is too late. Nvirotect Pest Control Services can provide solutions that take proactive measures against these termites.

Formosan Subterranean

Formosan subterranean termites are one of the most aggressive of all termites. They are always working and consequently consume the greatest amount of wood per month. They are also the only subterranean termites that can build a surviving colony above the ground.

These termites can be identified by their yellowish-brown color, as well as their size of ½ inch. Because they can relocate and live above ground, their nests can sometimes be found in affected buildings, often in attics. Once established, the colony grows rapidly.

Asian Subterranean

Asian subterranean termites are fairly new to Florida and can be found between South Florida to the Florida Keys. They are highly destructive and have an insatiable appetite. Asian subterranean termites feed on wood and, or, cellulose-containing material, and can even destroy trees.

Asian subterranean termites can be a caramel to brownish yellow color, with the top of their bodies marked with a dark brown to black color.

Drywood Termites

Drywood termites are very prevalent in South Tampa. Drywood termites live and feed on dry wood sources above the ground, as opposed to subterranean termites that seek out dark, moist places. In the spring, they will grow wings and relocate from holes in walls in the house, flying to find another place to live and start a second colony, usually also in the same house.

Drywood termites vary in color but have a thick waist, short legs, and straight antennae. They can be identified by their hexagonal feces, often confused for sawdust, with wings in it.

Preventative measures are especially important for this type of termite because you typically do not see them outside of the springtime and often can only see the signs once they swarm. For treating drywood termites, Nvirotect Pest Control Services offers spot treatments. Our termite exterminators in Tampa and control experts will find specific parts of your structure that the termites feed on. They will then use this centralized location to inject a safe and highly-effective product into the wood to treat the drywood termites.
