Eastern Subterranean Termites

There are over 4,000 different species of termites in existence. If you live in Baltimore and are dealing with a termite problem, your nemesis is likely the Eastern Subterranean Termites common in Maryland, Virginia and in many other states along the East Coast. These termites cause billions of dollars in home repairs every year, so instead of saving up for another repair bill, call Brody Brothers to evict these pests from your property by our termite control team.

Termites Live Where You do

The Sentricon System begins working as soon as it’s put in the ground. And with ongoing service from a Certified Sentricon Specialist, it keeps protecting your home 24/7/365, year after year.

Are You “Feeding” Your Home to Termites?

Eastern Subterranean Termites (like most termites) eat cellulose that can be found in many items from mulch and tree stumps to paper and even your home’s wooden wall studs. Termites live underground, travel through mud tubes and consume wood from the inside, which makes them hard to detect. You might not know you have termites until it’s too late and the damage is irreparable.

Here Are 3 Ways to Stay Proactive and Check for Termites in Baltimore

  • Look for wings. When termites are ready to start a new colony in Maryland, they come to the surface in large numbers to reproduce. You might not witness the swarm itself, but you may find the wings dropped by the reproductive termites (check your floor boards, windowsills and the basement).
  • Keep an eye out for mud tubes. Termites build mud tubes to create a comfortable way to travel between different locations inside your house. If you find one, break it and then check later to see if it’s been fixed – this means termites are active on your property.
  • Check the integrity of the wood. If you suspect you might have termites, do random checks on wooden beams and studs that you have access to. If termites got to it, the wood will be hollow inside.

I Suspect I Have Termites – What Do I Do?

Don’t panic and call Brody Brothers. We will send out our termite experts to determine for sure if you have a termite problem. After assessing your home, we will develop a comprehensive termite control solution to eliminate the current termite population and prevent any future infestations. Depending on your particular case, we may use a combination of termite control treatments from liquid and foam to bait. With our residential or commercial termite control plan, you also get follow-up inspections and termite monitoring that helps ensure your home or commercial property stays protected.

Tips to Discourage Termites from Nesting on Your Property:

  • Establish an adequate drainage for rainwater. Termites like moisture, so make sure your gutters are not leaking and soil in your yard drains well.
  • Keep wood piles and other wood debris like wood retaining walls away from the home; make sure mulch is never deeper than 3 inches.
  • Replace the decaying mulch every year – don’t let it accumulate.
  • Don’t leave tree stumps in the ground when you take down large trees: the decaying wood is likely to attract termites.
