A termite problem can go undetected for a long time because the damage they cause is usually hidden. If you recognize some winged termites inside your home, there may be a much larger colony nearby. Because termites feed on dead plants, trees and wood, they can cause serious damage to the internal structure of buildings. They often enter a home through the soil before attacking the foundation.


Ants invade your home in search of food and water. They can find the smallest cracks to locate uncovered food, crumbs or spills anywhere in your house. Once inside your home, ants will leave an invisible scent trail for other ants to follow. With large colony sizes, ants can nest in your yard, in the walls of your home or under the foundation.


Identifying a spider problem is fairly easy even though they like to hide in basements, crawl spaces or other dark places. They enter your home through holes or cracks before spinning their webs in dark corners. Because Black Widow and Brown Recluse spiders are dangerous, you should seek a professional pest control company to handle severe situations.

As a family-owned business, we understand how to treat our residential and commercial customers in a flexible and open way. Call Better Termite and Pest Control today for a free quote on your specific pest control needs!
