Termites feed on processed wood, raw timber, paper, sheet rock, decaying trees and lumber, fence posts, old stumps, wood flooring, baseboards, ceilings, staircases, and doors. Just because you’ve built a brand-new house does not exempt you from termites. What was there before that neighborhood appeared? It was undeveloped land where termites roamed freely and had ample enough of food sources. Your new home just became their new food source
They often enter through cracks in foundations, or when the cement pulls away from plumbing areas, creating mud tubes to keep their perfect environment intact with the right amount of moisture and protection from the elements.
Swarming season usually begins around April each year, when we’ve had rain showers coupled with high temperatures. The swarmer termites look like a small black piece of rice with wings twice the size of their bodies.
It is critical to keep shrubs and tree limbs trimmed away from your home to allow sufficient air flow to dry out damp areas more quickly, this note only helps with termites but also carpenter ants.

Termidor® is a liquid treatment using non-repellent or “undetectable” technology. Termites can not see, smell, or taste Termidor, instead they ingest on contact and share with their nestmates. This process is called the transfer effect and is a slow process giving time to spread through the entire colony. Termidor starts working immediately and has provided control of infesting termites in three months or less after treatment.
All-Rid Pest & Termite, Inc. offers multiple treatments:
