Termites: The Hidden Home Destroyers
They are small, they are virtually unnoticeable, and they may be eating you out of house and home…literally. In fact, you may not even know you have termites until it’s too late. Termites cost billions of dollars in property damages each year and even more to pick up after. Sure, you can spend your hard-earned money on DIY tools and sprays. But, those will never solve the problem long term! Protect your family and home by taking action before termites become an issue with a solution that is proven to last all year long! At Priority Pest & Mosquito Solutions, we offer a FREE home consultation, for preventative termite treatment or to fix a current problem! We keep the termites out of sight and out of mind.

How to Detect If My Home Is Infested With Termites
Detecting Termites can be difficult. Oftentimes you won’t notice them until they have caused damage and that damage can cost you big bucks! Here in Oklahoma termites are extremely active and found all over the state. Signs of termites include piles of sawdust near cracks and holes in your home’s exterior walls, wood that sounds hollow and can be breached with pressure from a knife or screwdriver, seeing droppings that looks similar to sawdust, discarded termite wings littering your home, and sighting swarms of termites around your property. Seeing the signs can be harrowing, but don’t panic, give Priority Pest and Mosquito Solutions a call! We will talk to you directly to find the best treatment options for you and your home. Once you’ve decided on an action plan we will begin treatment! We will also offer to make yearly stops to ensure the problem hasn’t resurfaced.
The Subterranean Termites of Oklahoma
The Worker Class makes up the largest portion of a termite colony’s population. They can be defined by their milky-white appearance. Workers repair the nest and tunnels connecting the colony to its food supply. They also groom and take care of nesting mates within the breeding class. They are responsible for much of the damage associated with termites.
The Soldier Class are defined by their massive armored heads, enlarged pincers and orangish colored body. As you may guess, Soldier Termites defend the colony from attack. Natural predators include ants, small bird types, bats and other termites.
The Swarmer Class, also known as the reproductive class, are defined by a pair of transparent wings and generally dark brown torso. Swarmers generally appear late in the evening during summertime. During this time, Swarmers mate and often leave to begin their own colonies. If you see a large swarm of termites, it is generally a sign a large colony is nearby.
Forget DIY, Turn to the Professionals
Do It Yourself Prevention and treatment can only go so far. At Priority Pest and Mosquito Solutions, we offer two types of Termite treatments. We offer Bait Treatment and Liquid Treatment. Both are proven to be effective in creating protection for your home.
Bait Treatment is, as the name suggests, used to trap termites before they enter your home and lure colonies out. This is done by placing underground traps, filled with desirable woods types and deadly bait, around the home effectively luring the foraging termites. The Bait Treatment System is proven to kill off entire colonies and remain effective long term.
Liquid Treatment is completed by digging a small trench around your home and filling it with Termiticide. This is the most common type of termite control. Much like Bait Treatment, it serves to protect your home from termites. These small trenches are virtually unnoticeable and can also remain effective for many years.
