In fact, the National Pest Management Association estimates that termites cause over $1.5 billion in damages annually.

Fortunately, the vast majority of termite damage can be avoided with the right preventative measures. If you are concerned about termites, the best thing you can do is work with an experienced pest control company to develop a comprehensive termite control plan.

Common Types of Termites in Tomball

There are many different types of termites in the U.S., but in Texas, the most common type of termite is the subterranean termite. As their name suggests, subterranean termites live in the soil and build their nests underground. These termites are responsible for the vast majority of termite damage in the U.S.

Subterranean termites live in large colonies that can contain hundreds of thousands or even millions of individual termites. These colonies are divided into different castes, including workers, soldiers, and reproductives. The workers are responsible for foraging for food and building and maintaining the nest, while the soldiers are responsible for defending the colony. The reproductives, also known as swarmers, are responsible for creating new colonies.

Unlike other types of termites, subterranean termites cannot survive for long periods of time outside of their nest. Instead, they must maintain a connection to the soil in order to survive. To create this connection, subterranean termites build mud tubes, which are small tunnels made out of soil, wood, and other materials. These tubes can be found on the exterior of a home, on the foundation, or even on interior walls.

It is important to note that subterranean termites are not the only type of termite that can cause damage to your home. In Texas, there are also several species of drywood termites and dampwood termites that can infest homes and other structures. However, these termites are much less common than subterranean termites, and they tend to be more of a problem in coastal areas.

How to Prevent Termites in Tomball

Preventing termites can be a challenge, especially in Texas where the warm, humid climate is ideal for termite activity. However, there are a number of steps you can take to reduce your risk of a termite infestation.

Some of the most effective ways to prevent termites include:

  • Eliminating sources of moisture around your home – Termites need water to survive, so it is important to eliminate sources of moisture around your home. Fix any leaky pipes or faucets, make sure your gutters are clean and free of debris, and use dehumidifiers in areas that tend to be damp, such as basements and crawl spaces.
  • Keeping your home well-ventilated – Termites are attracted to areas that are dark and humid, so it is important to keep your home well-ventilated. Make sure that your attic, basement, and crawl spaces are properly ventilated, and use fans to circulate the air in areas that tend to be damp.
  • Storing firewood and other wood products away from your home – Termites are attracted to wood, so it is important to store firewood and other wood products away from your home. If possible, keep firewood at least 20 feet away from your home, and make sure that it is stored off the ground and covered with a tarp.
  • Sealing cracks and gaps in your home’s exterior – Termites can gain access to your home through even the smallest cracks and gaps in the foundation, walls, and roof. To keep termites out, it is important to seal any cracks and gaps in your home’s exterior. Use caulk to seal cracks in the foundation and walls, and use weatherstripping to seal gaps around windows and doors. You should also make sure that your roof is in good repair and that there are no missing or damaged shingles.
  • Keeping your yard well-maintained – Termites are attracted to areas that are dark and moist, so it is important to keep your yard well-maintained. Trim back any trees or shrubs that are touching your home, and make sure that your yard is free of debris, such as leaves and branches. You should also make sure that your sprinkler system is not spraying water onto your home’s exterior.
  • Having regular termite inspections – The best way to prevent termites is to have regular termite inspections. A professional termite inspection can help you detect termites before they have a chance to cause serious damage to your home, and it can also help you identify conditions around your home that may be attracting termites.

What to Do if You Have a Termite Infestation

If you suspect that you have a termite infestation, it is important to act quickly. The longer you wait to treat a termite infestation, the more damage they will cause to your home. At the first sign of a termite infestation, you should contact a professional pest control company to schedule a termite inspection.

If the termite inspection confirms that you have a termite infestation, your pest control technician will work with you to develop a customized termite treatment plan. The right termite treatment plan for your home will depend on a number of factors, including the size and location of the infestation, the species of termite, and the construction of your home.

At Preventive Pest Control, we offer a variety of termite control services in Tomball, including liquid treatments, baiting systems, and more. Our team will work with you to determine the best treatment plan for your home and budget, and we will provide you with the information you need to make an informed decision about your termite treatment.

    "I'm giving this five stars, for two reasons; 1. The staff you speak to on the phone are incredibly polite! If you have a problem, they will listen and do their 100% best to solve it. 2. When I had my initial service done, I felt, at the time, that it was not to my expectations. Immediately I called the customer service folks. The very next day they sent out a manager to come fix any concerns I had. I recommend this company because their prices are low and their service is excellent."

    "I absolutely love this company. As a new member & proud subscriber, I was very impressed. Mr. Cordell & the sweet staff ladies (I can’t remember their names), were so nice to me. I will continue getting their services. They made my new home much safer for me & my daughter to treat the pest. Again thank you all so much for all you do."

    Tiara H.

    "We have been faithful customer's for many years in 2 different homes in The Woodlands.  The guys were always professional and left service cards at the door.  When we moved to the last home in 2014, we had a major cutter ant issue!!  They appeared out of nowhere and were destroying everything in sight!  I called the office in a panic and the gal got someone out the very next day.  He not only took care of all the beds, he followed the ant trail all the way to the back of the preserve and knocked those suckers out! We now live in Denver, Colorado. I was so pleased to find a locally owned Preventative Pest control - they are awesome too. When we move back to TW, I'll just pick right back up with you guys!"

Lol Thanks for helping our family keep the raccoons from causing anymore destruction."
