How to eliminate termites?
Termites are insects of the Isoptera family, whose main food is cellulose present in wood, paper, cardboard or materials such as MDF (Medium Density Fibreboard). They can create large termite mounds of thousands to millions of individuals, which move through the interior of wooden furniture, doors, beams or ceilings, feeding on it and causing a weakening of its structure. At this point it will be necessary to address a company specialized in termite pest control that eradicates these insects.
This type of isopter is characterized by creating tunnels or channels of progression, through which it moves, protecting itself from light and air currents until it reaches the pieces of wood, from whose cellulose it feeds. In order to digest cellulose, Termites resort to microorganisms (protozoa) that degrade it and make it a perfect food for them.
Termite pests dwell in colonies generally located underground, which can number up to 5 million individuals. They are social insects and are divided into different castes. Depending on their activity in the termite mound, we can find the primary reproducers (the king and the queen), soldiers, workers, winged termites (future primary reproducers) and secondary or reproducers.
Its presence can be devastating for wooden elements such as beams, cornices, doors, furniture or ceilings, or any other object made of wood, especially if it is very old, it has not been properly treated to avoid pests, or if it is found in a humid environment.
ERADICATE TERMITE PESTS
To eradicate termite pests, we use baits containing an inhibitor of chitin synthesis. The use of this technique is based on the termite feeding method, called Trofalaxia. This type of mechanism, common in social insects such as bees or ants, consists of the transfer of food, pheromones and protozoa from some individuals to others, “from mouth to mouth” or from “anus to mouth”. This transmission of cellulose by the worker termites towards the other members of the termite mound is used to distribute the biocidal product to all the members of the colony, since some of them never go outside to feed.
What damage can termites cause?
A termite infestation can cause severe structural and aesthetic damage to wood. Therefore, if you notice the presence of these insects, it is best to contact us to offer you our wood pest control service.
Damages in wooden furniture
When feeding themselves on wooden beams, doors, furniture, floors or ceilings among others, termites damage their structure until it becomes a useless element, which must be replaced by another piece due to the great damage caused by this insect.
When a wood pest is detected at some point in a building, it is very important to check all the other areas , to rule out the presence of more affected areas.
Signs of a termite infestation
There are certain signs to detect a termite infestation, and at Ecoplagas, as experts in wood pest control, we want to explain what you should look for if in your business, home or workplace there are furniture or pieces of wood that could be infected by termites.
Damage in the wood
Un claro indicador de la presencia de termitas, consiste en la aparición en la madera de desperfectos como resquebrajamientos o zonas más oscuras y que al tacto dan la sensación de estar huecas.
A clear evidence of the presence of termites is the appearance in the wood of cracks or darker areas that give the feeling of a hollow surface to the touch.
Sand near the wooden furniture
The appearance of piles of small balls (faecal balls), or remains of greyish sand, which can be confused with sawdust, near or under wooden surfaces, is a possible indicator of the presence of termites inside the wood.
The presence of tunnels or “mud” paths (progression channels) is an unmistakable hint of the presence of these insects, since they use these “chimneys” to move around in search of food.
