Why Termites Pose a Serious Threat in the Carolinas


Termites wreak havoc on homes and businesses across the Carolinas, causing extensive damage to properties in North Carolina, South Carolina, and beyond. With their insatiable appetites, termites target a wide range of materials, relentlessly devouring until either their food source (AKA your property) or the colony is eliminated. Safeguarding your home or business in NC, SC, or neighboring areas from these destructive pests requires understanding their behavior, implementing preventive measures, and exploring effective termite treatment options for potential infestations.


Sentricon Termite Bait Stations from Clark’s Pest Control


Termite Treatment - Sentricon Termite Bait System

In the battle against termites, not all methods are created equal. At Clark’s Pest Control in the Carolinas, our utilize Sentricon termite bait stations, providing a powerful solution without harming your property or the surrounding environment.

We begin with a thorough property inspection, followed by the strategic installation of Sentricon bait stations underground around your residence.

Next sees termites eagerly consume the irresistible bait, sharing it with their colony. The active ingredient prevents them from reaching maturity.

Step Three leads to the eradication of termites. Unable to molt properly, the termites will die out. As the colony succumbs, the queen follows suit, ensuring lasting protection.

Once the colony is annihilated the Sentricon bait stations will prevent the recurrence of termite issues.


Understanding the Origins of Termites in the Carolinas


Termite control specialists at Clark’s Pest Control explain that termites typically emerge from the ground, nearby trees, or shrubs. Many species reside underground, tunneling until they find a suitable food source. To effectively eliminate termites on your property, it’s crucial to target not only the home but also areas around the lawn and landscaping exhibiting signs of termite activity.


Recognizing Signs of a Termite Infestation


Termites make their presence known in distinctive ways. According to Clark’s Pest Control, soldier termites communicate danger through audible head-banging, sometimes resonating within walls. Their noisy feasting on cellulose may also be audible behind sheetrock or within beams.

Hollow or paper-like textured wood is a common indicator of termite infestation. Termites consume wood from the inside, leaving the outer surface intact. A hollow sound when tapping the area suggests termites may be burrowing inside.

Termites leave behind frass, or droppings, as a telltale sign. Drywood termites expel feces through small holes near nest entrances, leaving small black marks in the vicinity.


Potential Dangers of Termites in the Carolinas

Termite Treatments

Termites thrive in the warm and humid climate of the Carolinas. Once these pests enter your home, they quickly multiply and can cause thousands of dollars of damage all over your home. When an infestation is discovered no one should delay getting a termite treatment. 


Termites feed mainly on wood, but can also damage metal and plaster, leaving no area of your home safe from them. Some prime target spots are the foundation, ceilings, and drywall.


Signs of Termite Damage


The most common termites found in the Carolinas are Eastern Subterranean, Drywood, and Formosan termites.


Eastern Subterranean termites live underground and often cause damage that manifests similarly to water damage, like swelling of ceilings and floors and buckling wood. They also cause a mildew or mold scent. You may notice damaged cabinets and furniture, visible mazes within the furniture or your walls, or mud tunnels near your home’s foundation. Other signs that may indicate the presence of termites include:

  • Small holes in drywall

  • Gaps in floorings

  • Peeling paint

  • Clicking noises from termite jaws eating through wood and other materials

Drywood termites live within wooden structures, such as furniture and inside walls. They chew through wooden structures and create tunnels and chambers that weaken the piece. Cracks and visible mazes often become apparent only after the colony is well-established. Drywood termites can find their way indoors via furniture or firewood. They target wood pieces such as:

  • Porches and decks

  • Roof sheathing

  • Door and window frames

  • Rafters

  • Attic beams

  • Siding

  • Walls

  • Floors and subfloors

  • Wood trim

  • Furniture

One of the signs that you have drywood termites, other than wood damage, is tiny holes called kick holes in your floors or drywall. Termites use these holes to dispose of feces, called frass. These types of termites can cause serious structural damage that makes a building unstable and weak over time. Drywood termites typically work more slowly, causing considerable damage over five to eight years. Subterranean termites generally live in larger communities and can destroy your home’s structure in as little as one to three years.


Another type of termite, called the Formosan, or “super” termite is generally found in coastal areas. These termites are the most aggressive species. They live in large colonies and consume wood at incredible speeds three times faster than subterranean species. Formosan termites also chew through asphalt, plaster, vinyl, and even underground cables.


Termite damage is more than an eyesore. Many of these signs indicate a severe problem that threatens the safety of your home. It’s often difficult for homeowners to identify termite infestations before they cause significant damage. By the time you notice it, you could have widespread damage. It’s best to call in the experts as soon as possible to inspect your home, evaluate the scope of the damage, and find the source of the problem and increase the effectiveness of termite treatments.


Preventing Termite Damage


You can take action to minimize the risk of a termite infection in your home by doing the following:

  • Reinforce the structure during construction.

  • Use concrete, metal, or plastic barriers to reinforce the foundation.

  • Remove tree stumps, roots, and wood debris.

  • Keep water drained away from buildings.

  • Stack firewood off the ground and away from the home.

  • Plant trees at least 20 feet away from your home.

  • Invest in preventative termite treatments.

Despite your effects to deter termites, they are good at hiding their presence until the damage they cause is already serious. The best strategy to protect your home is through professional termite control.


Clark’s Pest Termite Control Solutions


Termite damage often goes unnoticed until the damage becomes severe. At Clark’s Termite & Pest Control, we work to prevent issues before they begin by offering termite prevention and eradication services.


Our services begin with a home termite inspection to identify areas of damage and current termite activity and problem areas that could draw termites to your home. Next, we place Sentricon termite bait stations in the soil surrounding your home. The Sentricon system bait is 10 times more appealing to termites than wood. It is effective at eliminating subterranean termites and keeping them away in the future. Termites eat the bait and return to spread it to the colony. The ingredient noviflumuron prevents the maturation process by stopping molting, which causes the entire colony, including the queen, to die. We don’t stop at bait stations. Part of the Clark promise is ensuring customer satisfaction. Our technicians continue to monitor the Sentricon bait stations to replenish them as needed to give you continued protection.
