Drywood termites infest wood areas and therefore do not require to be in the soil.
These termites originated from China, and are known to be the most aggressive and deveious species of any other termite species. They are a subterranean species which grow to about half an inch in length.
The termites thrive underground in colonies, where they survive in secluded areas. They can also survive in moist secluded areas above ground, with over 2 million members in the colony. They travel through mud tubes to their food source, also protecting themselves from the open air. These termites have a distinct ranked system, where they are divided into workers, soldiers and reproductives, with each their own characteristics.

These pests feed off the blood of their hosts, which includes humans. Although they can conceal themselves quite well in cracks and crevices, they are often found in bed parts, like mattresses and box springs.
As a part of the Integrated Specialist Pest Control approach that Seminole County mosquito control is implementing, control of immature mosquitoes, larvae, is conducted year spherical. this is one among the most economical and cost effective control measures for mosquitoes out side of eliminating the supply. As larvae, mosquitoes are in focused areas wherever treatment can be centered on the problem. Specialist Pest Control applies pesticides at the suggested application rates for every product it uses. for instance, 5 pounds (or bigger depending upon surround conditions) per acre is our standard application rate for our Bti grain chemical. we have a tendency to additionally perform a large variety of management|internal control} post-checks every season to make sure that our control treatments are effective. Specialist Pest Control owns all the instrumentation (power backpack spreaders, hand-held GPS units, etc.) and has the force needed to provide you with a comprehensive and effective larval police work and control program at a good value.
1. Argentine Ants
Argentine ants could become a large threat, as the colony size can become monumental, sometimes covering entire habitats. Unlike other ant species, the Argentine ant queen also forages for food.
