TERMITES IN COLORADO
If you never realized that there are termites in Colorado, you’re not alone. Because we live at a high altitude and in a dry climate, many people, including builders, assume that termites are a nonissue in our region. Yet, the reality is most parts of Colorado are located in a zone where the potential for damage from termites is possible. It is a growing problem in Colorado urban areas.
Colorado has three main types of termites, but the most common is the Eastern Subterranean Termite. As the name suggests, termite colonies are formed underground. The worker termites leave the nest to feed on wood, stored books, and other materials. Termites gain access to your home or other structure through direct wood to soil contact. Soil contact with another material such as hollow masonry can also provide an entry point.
Termites are often confused with carpenter ants so it’s important to have a professional inspection in order to accurately detect the presence of termites. However, here are a few signs to look for:
- Small, softbodied winged insects in the spring or fall
- 1/4 to 1/2″ mud tubes from the soil and along foundations, wood supports, or masonry
- Wood compacted with a hard earthen substance
If you do find evidence of a termite presence, DO NOT DISTURB them. Your best course of action is to contact us for an inspection. We will confirm the presence of termites and the type. Each type of termite requires a different management tactic.
The good news is, termite colonies build slowly. We will assess the entire situation, close up entry points, and dispose of the current infestation. Additionally, we’ll offer up a plan of action to prevent future infestations.
Removing termites colonies and preventing a return requires treatment from experienced, knowledgable and reliable professionals. Chaney Pest Elimination has the experience and knowledge to do the best job.
