Be on the Lookout for These Wood-Destroying Insects

Here are the wood-destroying pests you need to watch for.

Termites

Almost everyone has heard of termites. These insects cause billions of dollars in damage and can literally make your home fall apart if left unchecked. And a scary fact is that they feed on a 5-acre pattern. That means that if one home is infected, the rest of the neighborhood is at risk.

Termites have wings twice the length of their body and only have a head and abdomen (they are often confused with ants). Signs of termites include tapping in your floors, piles of discarded wings, sagging floors, or hollow wood.

Carpenter Ants

Carpenter ants only are an issue when you have standing water somewhere on your property. They always have colonies, with 2–10 being the average number of ants per colony. Carpenter ants can have wings and are of various sizes.

Powder Post Beetles

These nasty critters are especially dangerous because they can survive in and damage wood for up to 11 years. The number-one sign of powder post beetles is small holes in your basement wood.

Carpenter Bees

Carpenter bees can hide anywhere, from decks to porches and eaves. One telltale sign of carpenter bees is a ½-inch entrance hole in your wood.

If you suspect you have any of these pests in your home, call Fox Valley Environmental Pest Control immediately. Only pest control professionals can treat these pests.
