Subterranean termites are the most destructive kind of termite and Maitland is INVADED
Termites are a pest that can wreak havoc on your home. They’re destructive, costly to treat and require expensive repairs if you ever have an infestation! Termite flight requires just the right exterior humidity and temperature so they find their nest sites in order for them to create new colonies – these critters will fly long distances away from where they live to begin a new nest- including your home!
They will crawl into any structure through cracks, pipes, and the tiniest gaps in concrete slabs where they start their tyrannical attack on your home.
The most noticeable features of a subterranean termite infestation are the sudden mud tunnels they create to access your home.
