Termite – Ant Comparison
One common cause for confusion is the visual similarity between Bermuda’s “Flying Ants” that are not a danger to your homes wooden structures, and Termites that do pose a real threat. The fact that they both swarm in the summer months can add to the confusion.
In the case of termites, a swarm locates a point of entry to the building – often a very small spot and proceeds from there to establish one or more colonies that begin the slow inexorable process of turning all of the wooden structures to dust. Since most Bermuda roofs and floors are supported by wooden structures, long term infestation left untreated can have a catastrophic effect on the property

Things to keep in mind
If a solution for termites seems “Too good to be true” then it probably is!
Do not be fooled by “Quick and Easy” treatments that rely on surface application of chemicals. The problem is that termites burrow deeeply into wood structures, into areas that cannot be reached by surface treatments. Our penetrating gas process is the only sure method to prevent a resurgence of the colony.
Termites can be busy doing their destructive work and escape detection for years unless you know the signs to look for. Our trained inspectors can teach you what to look for so that you can spot termite infestations at an early stage before serious damage is done.
