A termite infestation in Dallas can cause great harm and structural damage to your home or property. That's because termites quietly chew through the wood (floors, studs behind the sheetrock, etc), in your home as they look for their main source of food…cellulose. It is for this reason termites can be particularly damaging/costly because they largely go undetected for months.
Types Of Termites
Subterranean termites typically prefer to gnaw on the softest part of the wood located between the grains. This differs from dry wood termites which tend to chew across the grain itself. Additionally, subterranean termites nest in the ground, as opposed to dry wood termites which nest within the wood they infest.
How To Know If You Have Termites?
You can tell if you have subterranean termites when you see vertical "mud tubes" emanating from the foundation of your home. Subterranean termites use these mud tubes to enter your home from the ground around it. Dark brown in color, these mud tubes are made from a combination of soil, saliva, wood, and fecal matter. Subterranean termites use their mud tubes as a means of protection and moisture retention as they move about above ground to forage food.

Termites Found In Dallas, TX
Size: 1/8 ” to 3/8” (workers); 1/2" (swarmers)
Color: cream (workers); dark brown to black (swarmers)
How to Recognize: Are most visible during the swarming season when the swarmers (reproductive) emerge from the colony in a dark cloud to begin the reproductives process. These swarms are often confused with flying ants. Their presence in a structure can go undetected until damage appears unless a colony is discovered during a professional examination.
Habitat: Although subterranean termites live in colonies in the soil, they feed on wood, or other cellulose material such as paper, cardboard, and fiberboard, and cause millions of dollars of damage every year in the U.S.
Behavior: Workers are blind and enter homes through cracks as small as 1/64". They return to the colony.
