How To Identify Termites

  • Termites in South Carolina are often subterranean, meaning they build their colonies underground.
  • They are small, about a quarter-inch long, pale in color, often mistaken for ants.
  • Look for mud tubes on exterior walls, a sign of termites moving between their colony and food source.
  • Damaged wood that sounds hollow when tapped and may have a honeycomb interior is a common indicator.
  • Swarmers (winged termites) are often seen during swarming season, typically in the spring.

Termites Habits

  • Termites feed primarily on wood, causing significant damage to the structure of buildings.
  • They maintain a hidden presence, often undetected until damage is severe.
  • Subterranean termites require moist environments and often create mud tubes for protection and moisture while traveling.
  • They live in large colonies with a caste system including workers, soldiers, and reproductive termites.
  • Swarmers emerge to mate and start new colonies, often a sign of a mature colony nearby.

How To Prevent Termites

  • Eliminate sources of moisture in and around your home, as termites are attracted to damp conditions.
  • Keep wood, such as firewood or lumber, away from your home's foundation.
  • Regularly inspect your home for signs of termites, especially mud tubes and damaged wood.
  • Ensure your home's foundation is properly ventilated and that there is adequate drainage around your property.
  • If you suspect a termite infestation, immediately contact Marett Pest Control for a professional termite inspection and treatment plan.
