Frequently Asked Questions

What are common warning signs of termites?

There are a number of warning signs that termites leave behind in properties they infest. Some of the most common include:

  • Small holes found in hood around the structure
  • Small piles of sawdust-like material (frass) found around the structure
  • Mud tubes running along foundation walls
  • Grooves dug into the wood in your home’s walls or foundations
  • Wood that sounds hollow when knocked on
  • Doors or windows that jam or stick when being opened and closed
  • Small, discarded wings found around the home from termite mating flights
  • Swarms of flying termites near your home

Unfortunately, most of these warning signs might be invisible to the naked eye, or might not even be present at all. Termites are not like other pests: if you wait until the problem becomes apparent to solve it, it is already too late, and you already have a severe and costly infestation on your hands. 

When is the active season for termites?

In the United States, “termite season” is typically considered to begin in the spring and last until the late fall, depending on the part of the country. Termites pass through the colder months by overwintering inside trees, under fallen leaves, inside plant matter on the ground, or inside the buildings they infest. They then re-emerge in the early spring to perform mating swarms, during which reproductive termites sprout wings and pair off, fly off in random directions in order to start new colonies of their own. Each pair will then become the queen and queen of their respective colonies. 

Unfortunately, while they are most visible during this mating period, termites can strike any time of year. In Florida, the mild winters mean that they never go into inactivity, but even in New York and New Jersey, they can stay tunneling all year round under the right conditions. Due to this fact, the only way to keep your property protected from termites long-term is through a lasting protection program from a pest control provider. 

How much damage can termites cause?

The damage a termite infestation leaves behind will vary based on a number of factors, including the size of the infestation, how long the termites have been active inside the structure, and the amount of wood present that they can get into. Certain damage is also more costly than others; for example, damage to the interior floors might not be as damaging as direct damage to the home’s foundations, which can be incredibly damaging to the overall fortitude of the structure.

The only real answer to the question of how much damage termites can cause is “a lot,” and the longer the infestation persists, the worse the damage will be.

How can I tell if I have termites?

Unfortunately, it can be extremely difficult, even impossible, for the average home or business owner to become aware of a termite problem on their property until catastrophic damage has already occurred. However, termite bait systems from a certified termite control provider can be used to accurately assess and monitor termite levels within a home. Contact us today for more details.

How to control termites in the lawn?

If there are termites in your lawn, it's only a matter of time before they enter your house. Now is the time to take action to eliminate them before they get inside. Our termite control treatments don't only eliminate termites in your home, but will also take care of the termites in your lawn.

How to choose a termite control company?

When choosing a company for termite control, you want to look for a fully licensed company that warranties their service and uses the most effective products in the industry. Amco Pest Solutions meets all of these standards.

What is the average cost of termite control?

The cost of termite control can vary from home to home. Pricing will depend in part on the size of your home and whether you have an active infestation or not. When we inspect your house, we'll provide you with a quote for our services before we proceed.

How to control termites in wood?

If termites have gotten into the wood in your house, you need professional termite control. They will not leave on their own, and do-it-yourself treatment methods are not effective at eliminating a termite colony.

How to control termites in soil?

Although termites in your soil are something to be concerned about, it's better to find them there than to find them in your house. However, it's still important to immediately contact us for professional termite control, so they don't have a chance to get into your home.
