When it comes to types of termites, there are two that are commonly found in South Carolina – Eastern Subterranean termites and Formosan termites. Our pest control professionals can eliminate both types using the same treatment process. However, getting rid of Formosan termites may be more costly because of the liability in damages that these termites can cause. Our professionals may have to renew the area that was damaged.

More Information about Formosan Termites

Formosan termites are most commonly found in the Charleston area between April and July. Their main source of food is wood, but they also feed on cellulose-rich items like cardboard, rope, paper, and some types of furniture. They can also eat through copper, asphalt, and some plastics, which is why they tend to be so destructive.

If you discover bulges in your paint or wallpaper, carton nests, mud shelter tubes, or wings in lighted areas (such as near windows), call our Charleston pest control services as soon as possible so that one of our experts can evaluate your home or business.
