ARE TERMITES THAT SERIOUS?
Termites Cause Billions in Damage Each Year
Subterranean Termites are found throughout the state of Georgia and account for more that $5 billion dollars in damage each year. Georgia actually ranks third in the nation for termite activity! Damage caused by termites is rarely covered by homeowners insurance.
Termites Multiply Quickly
A termite colony will eat 24 hours a day. It takes approximately 3 to 5 years for a colony to fully mature
reaching numbers between 60,000 to 1 million workers. One acre can contain 13-14 colonies.
Termites are "Silent Destroyers"
The majority of termite activity occurs underground and often goes unnoticed until mature colonies begin to swarm during warm weather, most notably spring.
TERMITES OR ANTS?
Swarming termites and Flying Ants can look similar at first glance but there are several identifying
factors such as the difference in antennae, waist, and wings as shown in the image.

TREATMENT & PROTECTION
If you are interested in having your property inspected or treated we are here to help. We will begin with a thorough inspection to identify any current or past termite activity.
If you are interested in having your property inspected or treated we are here to help.
Red Hawk offers a FREE termite inspection.
We will identify any current or past termite activity. We will inspect the inside of the property as well as the outside of the property.
Once the inspection is complete we can then make a recommendation for treatment and long term protection for your property.
We inspect for swarmers, mud tubes, mud that has been placed in construction tubes, wood damage, and landscape wood that is in close proximity of the property. Sometimes the signs are more subtle and will present as small exit holes in dry wall or bubbling/peeling on painted walls.
We incorporate high quality products into our plans and offer traditional liquid treatments using Termidor H.E. or Trelona Adavanced Termite Bait Stations.
Here are 10 ways you can help reduce termite activity:
Remove dead or decaying trees from the property.
Keep moisture away from the structure. Redirect downspouts, sprinklers, air conditioner condensation, and any areas of poor drainage away from the foundation.
Check the roof and crawl space for any moisture damage and make repairs if needed.
Keep plants 12 inches away from the foundation.
Choose pine straw or gravel over mulch.
Seal up any gaps or cracks in the structure and around pipes.
Keep wood, cardboard, or lumber away from the foundation.
Store firewood at least 20 feet away from the structure.
During swarm season keep any outside lights off at night, which can attract flying termites.
Regularly inspect any wooden fences and apply termite repellent stains or paint.
