Job Stories From Hightstown, NJ
Termites swarm in Hightstown

I was called upon to treat a termite problem at a house in Hightstown. Termite damage often remains hidden until there is extensive damage to the home. However, there are two important earlier signs of a termite infestation that homeowners should be aware of. One is the mud tubes formed by termites so they can move from the nest to the wood food source without being exposed to the elements. the other sign of termite trouble, and by far, the more visible of the two, is termite swarms. This homeowner went through the frightening experience of witnessing a termite swarm take place inside his own home.

What are swarmers? Swarmers (flying termites), also known as winged reproductives, belong to a termite colony along with the workers and the queen. They emerge during the spring to search for mates in order to start a new colony. As soon as they mate, they break off their wings. Since termites are attracted to light, homeowners may find piles of termite wings on windowsills or on countertops near light sources. When a termite colony swarms, thousands of winged termites are potentially released. They may enter homes from the underground colony through cracks in the slab construction. Even though nearly all swarmers will die if they emerge inside a structure, it’s still important to contact a termite pest control professional immediately. An inside swarm like the one experienced by this homeowner is a sure sign that there is a hidden termite infestation on the property.

As part of my inspection, I had to determine where these invading insects had entered the home, so I could treat the soil where the termite nest had formed. At the base of a wall in the laundry room, I found a plumbing clean-out pipe. These pipes are used to access the home’s sewer line to clear out clogs. Right next to the pipe, I discovered a termite mud (shelter) tube in the wall void. That was how these sneaky wood-devouring insects were finding their way into the home!

Now it was time to get rid of these property-destroying insects. To eradicate the termite colony, I first needed to drill a small hole through the laundry room floor to gain access to the ground area where a termite nest was buried below. I then injected a powerful termiticide into the soil underneath the slab to reach the termites using a slab injector that I locked down on top of the hole. This non-repellant application is carried back to the nest by the workers where it will be transferred like a virus to the other termites. Soon, the entire termite colony will be killed. This home will now be protected against termite damage from this underground nest.

Yesterday afternoon, I heard burrowing noises in my attic. There are a ton of squirrels around outside, so I believe they've gotten in somehow. I heard these sounds last week as well, but was hoping it'd go away. Alas, it has not. I would like them to be humanely removed. Thanks.

I need a preventive termite treatment, because I am selling my condo. The buyers want to make sure there are no termites present.
