General Information.   There are at least six native subterranean termites in the United States.   The most common and destructive is the Eastern Subterranean termite.   Home owners should look for mud tunnels along the foundation of the structure.   Other signs of these maybe mud on the drywall covering a small pin hole where the termites have eaten through.    These termites are often noticed during the Spring when they swarm.

Treatment Preparations. Prior to a treatment all wood that is against or underneath the structure should be removed.

Dowell Pest Control will utilize a termiticide with the active ingredient of Fipronil to treat the soil around the structure.
