BE PROACTIVE WITH TERMITES AND OTHER WOOD-DESTROYING ORGANISMS
Despite their size, wood destroying organisms like termites, ants, and beetles can do serious damage to your property. They infest wood over a long period of time, so it's likely these insects were present even before you moved in. Call immediately if you suspect a problem so that Vantage Property Services can identify the intruders and recommend a professional to remove them!

HOW INSECTS ENTER A HOME
Termites are not (usually) seen by the naked eye because they choose to stay deep inside infested areas for protection. However, if you notice either of the following, you may have a problem:
Noticeable mud-like tunnels
These brown, tunnel-like structures can easily be spotted on walls, either dropping or fully glued. They are typically formed in irregular patterns and are made of mud, wood, insect feces, and saliva.
Not all termite species swarm at the same time, but for a swarm to occur, the weather must be warm. After heavy rains or in springtime, look for swarms in or around your home. Any signs of flying termites in a home indicate the presence of a mature colony.
