Termite issues are able to be dealt with by your Broken Arrow pest control company. Termites are a wood destroying insect that feed upon the wood that makes up our home. These insects are very dangerous because they could damage the structural integrity of your home or business. They remain underground, hidden from our sight until we start to see the results of their work. It’s important to make sure that you’re protecting your home from these insects because that is your greatest investment. So in this article, let us take a good hard look at termites, their life cycle, and what you and your Tulsa pest-control company can do to protect yourself and your home from these insects.


Because these insects are subterranean, they must stay underground in order to survive. They’re very susceptible to drying out and if they’re above ground for too long, they will do that. Normally in order to come above ground for food they’ll build mud tubes, caring the humid air up above ground. These mud tubes can be seen on the outside of buildings and on the sides of trees as a telltale signs that you have an issue with termites. If you seen mud tubes anywhere in and around your home then its time to call your Broken Arrow pest control company for help.

Sometimes termites will come up inside a wall. When this happens, you can’t see them, but you can still find signs that they’ve been there. These insects will start to feed upon the drywall from the inside out. The paper and the gypsum in the middle are full of cellulose that they love to eat. As they eat away at the Dry Wall, it will eventually make soft spots in the drywall that you can feel with your hand. In addition, you can also see spots where they break through the outside layer of paper. When they do this, they have to fill it with a mud to protect the humid air that they are bringing up from underground. So spots of mud on your wall can be another sign that you have termites inside the walls. Check out our reviews!


There are essentially two ways that we normally control termites. We do a liquid treatment or a bait station treatment. A liquid treatment is an attempt to create a barrier all the way around the outside of the house by digging a trench, and filling it with pesticide. This pesticide will drain down through the dirt, creating a kind of curtain of pesticide treated dirt in the ground. Then the trench is filled in with the pesticide treated dirt. The termites must go through this dirt, and then carry it back to their colony, if they’re going to go inside the house. Bait stations work much the same. They are placed all the way around the house and the termites take the bait from the station to take it back to the colony. Contact your Broken Arrow pest control company for more information.
