Termites in Tangipahoa Parish

Termites can cause serious damage to your property if they are left untreated. What makes pests even more difficult is that they remain hidden. Their presence often remains unnoticed until you see visible signs of damage in your home during the later stages of infestation.

These pesky bugs are the reason behind a considerable amount of property damage in the Gulf Coast region. If you have an unprotected wooden structure, then a termite infestation is inevitable. As a home or property owner, it is important for you to become familiar with how this tiny bug can bring damage to your property, and arm yourself with the knowledge on how to prevent and control it.

The most common termites in the Gulf Coast region are the subterranean termites, drywood termites, and Formosan termites. Knowing a little bit about these termite species helps you identify the type that is invading your home.

Subterranean Termites

Subterranean termites need to have moisture in order to survive. This is why they live in the soil or in damp wooden places. Signs of infestation are elaborate tunnels called mud tubes which they use to access their above-ground food source.

Drywood Termites

Drywood termites are prevalent in the Gulf Coast. Unlike their subterranean counterparts, they do not need a lot of moisture in order to survive. They live inside the wood they are infesting. Signs of infestation are sand-like fecal droppings.

Formosan Termites

Formosan termites are a type of subterranean termite. They are an imported species native to China and are a lot less common in the US, but can be found in Louisiana and Mississippi.

The Termite Life Cycle

Termites are social creatures that live in a colony. The life cycle of a termite begins during a swarming season, where termites choose to leave their established colonies to mate with each other. After mating, the termites lose their wings and form new colonies, where they take on different roles.

The workers build mud tunnels and feed other members of the colony, while the soldiers defend the colony from intruders. Since the soldiers cannot feed themselves, they are fed by the workers. The reproducers are called alates, and have wings. When the right time comes, they leave the colony in order to look for a partner and mate.
