Eastern Subterranean Termite Infestation in Baltimore

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. These pests are common in Pikesville, Towson, Lochearn, and Catonsville, Maryland, various places in 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.

Are There Termite in Your Home?

Eastern subterranean termites (like most termites) eat cellulose that can be found in many items, including mulch, tree stumps, paper, and even insulation in 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.

 How to Prevent Termite Infestation 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. Though you may not see the swarm itself, you may find wings that have been dropped by the reproductive termites. These wings could be in your floor boards, windowsills, or basement.
  • Keep an eye out for mudtubes. Termites build mud tubes to travel between different locations in your home. If you find one, break it and check later to see if it’s been fixed and if termites are active on your property.
  • Check the integrity of your wood. If you suspect you might have termites, check wooden beams and studs that you have access to.  The wood will be hollowed out if termites have gotten to it.

What Do I Do If I Think I Have Termites?

Call our professionals at (443) 379-8857.  Our team of experts will determine for sure if you have a termite problem. After assessing your home, we will develop a comprehensive 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 monitoring that helps ensure your home or commercial property stays protected.

How to Prevent Termites

  • Establish an adequate drainage for rainwater. Termites are attracted to 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 your home.
  • Make sure mulch is never deeper than 3 inches and replace the decaying mulch every year—don’t let it
  • accumulate.
  • Don’t leave tree stumps in the ground after you’ve taken down large trees. The decaying wood is likely to attract termites.
