Termites are widespread in throughout the state of Florida.  These silent destroyers will gnaw away at  your home non-stop.  Unfortunately, too often by the time homeowners realize they have them significant damage is underway. 

ALL termites can cause significant damage to the home or business costing thousands of dollars.    As with all pests , prevention is the best measure.  

Subterranean Termites, Drywood Termites and  Dampwood Termites are all common here in Fort Myers.

Subterranean Termites eat wood, wallpaper, plastics and fabric made from plants.

Subterranean termites need contact with the soil to survive. They live in underground colonies or in wet areas aboveground. They build tunnels to reach food and every spring, groups of reproductive termites fly off to start new colonies.


Subterranean termites are the most destructive kind of termite. They can eat a lot of wood and they can cause a lot of expensive damage to a house! They can destroy building foundations, wooden support beams, plastic plumbing pipes, sub-flooring, insulation … even swimming pool liners and filtration systems! Termites can also injure or destroy living trees and shrubs.


Make sure water drains away from your house.

Don’t let water build up around your home's foundation. Termites like that!

Replace any damp or damaged wood on the outside of your home.

Never leave wood scraps in the yard for them to snack on.

Dampwood Termites and  Drywood Termites - Fort Myers.

Dampwood Termites and the Drywood Termites prevalent in Fort Myers.

Dampwood termites like to feed on very moist wood. Because they need lots of moisture, Dampwood Termites usually live in damp, dying wood or in houses with leaking plumbing that keeps the wood wet.
 

Impact: Dampwood termites do not carry disease and don’t usually bother buildings because there is not enough water in the wood.

 

Prevention:  To avoid Dampwood termites, make sure water drains away from your house.

Replace any damp or damaged wood on the outside of your home.

​Drywood termites generally live, feed and nest in undecayed wood which has a very low moisture content. Unlike subterranean termites, they do not require any contact with the soil in order to live. they can seriously damage movable wooden objects such as furniture.

 

Prevention:  To avoid Dampwood termites, make sure water drains away from your house.

Replace any damp or damaged wood on the outside of your home.
