Types of Termites in Alabama

There are 2,000 different species of termites in the world. Luckily, there are only two types that are common here in Alabama, which are Eastern subterranean and Formosan termites. Each species is different and we tailor treatment depending on what kind we find in your home.

Eastern Subterranean Termites

Eastern subterranean termite colonies are located underground and can have hundreds of thousands of members. These termites have to stay moist, otherwise their bodies will dry out and they’ll die. If they go above ground, subterranean termites create mud tubes to protect themselves from the open air. They also never sleep, allowing them to constantly eat away at your home.

Formosan Termites

Formosan termites are a type of subterranean termite and considered to be the most destructive and aggressive species. Their colonies are substantially larger, averaging several million termites, which lets them destroy structures much faster than other species. Formosan termites build their colonies both above and below ground, making them especially difficult to eliminate without professional help.

Signs of a Termite Infestation

Termite infestations are so devastating because they are difficult to identify, which means most people don’t realize they have a problem until it’s too late. To help protect your home from costly termite damage, look out for these warning signs:

  • Discarded wings: After a swarm of termites lands, they’ll lose their wings. This results in piles of them, often near windows and doors.
  • Hollow-sounding wood: Termites chew through the middle of wooden structures, sometimes leaving behind a shell that looks untouched but sounds hollow.
  • Buckling floors: Damage to the subfloor and structural supports can cause buckling, uneven, and squeaky floors.
  • Peeling paint: Termites introduce excess moisture into your home which results in peeling paint that looks similar to water damage.
  • Mud tubes: These thin, cylindrical tubes protect termites as they travel from the ground to your home. They’re often found outside on the foundation.

If any of these sound familiar, call us at 205-506-3500 right away to schedule a termite inspection. One of our highly trained exterminators will inspect your home to confirm it’s termites, then create a custom treatment plan to fully eradicate them.
