Is it time for a termite inspection in Newport OR?

Could there be termites in your home? Even if you think they aren’t something to worry about, it’s possible to have termites right under your nose and not even notice them. This is because some kinds of termites–especially the ones common in the Pacific Northwest–live underground and burrow up from there. So if you do happen to see some, there are likely many more in hiding! But before you get too worried, call The Killers for a termite inspection in Newport OR. We’ll flush termites out of hiding if you have them and make sure they won’t be coming back!

Are there other kinds of termites?

Termites are insects that love wood. And like most kinds of insects, they aren’t limited to just one species; there are over 2500 different species! But at your Newport OR property, you’re likely to find one of two varieties.

Subterranean Termites are the ones that live underground. And they happen to be the ones that love the damp wood that’s prevalent throughout the area. They’re harder to detect because you can have them without even knowing it! This means that you’re far more likely to encounter these than any other type.

It’s possible to find termites that prefer dry wood too, though they aren’t as common here. These Drywood Termites prefer a drier wood. You are very unlikely to find them in newer homes that are built with termites in mind, but they can get in through antique furniture or other old wood.


What are the signs of termites in my house?

Because subterranean termites in particular are difficult to notice directly, you’re more likely to deal with the effects of them instead of finding a nest. Things to watch out for include:

How do you get rid of termites?

Termites are unusual because they aren’t attracted to the usual things that bugs like. But we come prepared and ready to face them. Our special termite baiting techniques are irresistible to the little guys. Termites love wood. But what they love even more is our Sentricon bait, a powerful agent that they bring back to the nest that destroys the entire colony. And if anything remains, our exterminators find and eliminate them in whatever way works best for your specific property.
