Frequently Asked Questions:

What attracts termites to my house?

What conditions attract termites? We usually associate termites with wood. But different types of termites are attracted to specific conditions. The three common types of termites are dampwood, drywood, and subterranean.

Dampwood termites

Dampwood termites seek wood that is damp or moist, wood that is water damaged, and wood that rests directly on the ground.

Drywood termites

Drywood termites get the moisture they need from the air, so they do not necessarily need to live in wood that is damp or water damaged.

Subterranean termites

Subterranean termites need moist soil and wood that is in contact with the ground. Creating tunnels through the mud and to the wood, these termites thrive in humid conditions.

While we’re not an extermination company, Crawlspace Medics makes sure that your crawl space or basement is an inhospitable environment for termites and other wood-eating pests.

Using techniques like encapsulating your crawl space, repairing dry rot, and dehumidifying your basement or crawl space, we eliminate the conditions that attract all varieties of termites.

Can termites enter through concrete?

Termites can enter through cracks and gaps in your concrete

In addition to wood under and around your home, termites can enter your home through cracks, gaps, and crevices in your foundation’s concrete. Whether they enter through the crawl space, basement, or even through cracks around your windows and doors, these pests can quickly make themselves at home, causing incredible damage to your home.

How do I know if I have termites in my crawl space?

Because termites cause most of their damage inside the wood, catching termites can sometimes be tricky if you don’t know what to look for.

Keep an eye out for the following signs:

Small holes in the surface of the wood

  • Wood damage that’s been patched with mud
  • Small tunnels in the mud
    Termite wings and dead termites
  • Hollow sound when you tap wooden beams

 

One common misconception about termites is that they leave sawdust. While carpenter ants, carpenter bees, and wood-boring beetles produce sawdust as they chew through wood, termites don’t.

Dampwood and drywood termites, however, do leave behind droppings that can look similar to sawdust. And subterranean termites leave feces that are actually more liquid and are used to build their tunnels through the mud and wood.

How do you repair dry rot?

There are some things you can do yourself to prevent dry rot, but hiring a professional will make sure you are covered. Because most insurance companies do not cover damage from dry rot (unless caused by a storm or flood), you will want to protect your home from damage.
