Here in Idaho we have a few different species of destructive termites and it is important to have a professional identify the species and create the appropriate termination plan. The three species are the Western Subterranean Termites, Nevada Dampwood Termites and the Arid-land Subterranean Termites. Each specie is very destructive here in Boise Idaho as their common food source is wood or timber and they can have colonies of many thousands of termites and the queens can lay a couple thousand eggs a day, with a lifespan of up to 25 years, wow! The long lifespan and the number of members in a colony make it extremely important to seek professional help in eradicating your termite infestation.
Much like an ant colony there are different roles and specific termites for those roles. We start with the Queen and King who reproduce and keep the colony expanding. There are the Soldiers who are charged with protecting the colony. The workers who build the nest and feed the colony, there are the destructive members. Finally, the winged reproductive (swarmer’s) or young King and Queens. These winged termites will number in the thousands in a mature nest. Usually during the spring months, they will leave the nest in swarms looking for a mate and a new home. If you see winged termites around your property call a Pest Control Professional immediately before they find a nice cozy place to call home.
It is estimated that 1 in 5 homes in Idaho are infested or will be infested with Termites. It may take years for the damage to be noticeable, but it can be very extreme. They are secretive insects and like to find places that are quite with a source of water and food. If you do find a nest in your Boise home, do not disturb it! Call us today! They are known to abandon a disturbed nest and find a better more secluded place within your structure.
You may have seen the termite nests in Australia or Africa above ground in massive mounds. Here in Boise, they are more likely to build a similar nest below ground just above the water table. Their massive colonies can build nests that have tunnels leading more than 100 yards from the central nest. These tunnels are the avenues in which workers build to find food. These tunnels can lead right into your house causing massive amounts of damage.
