Termite Control in San Antonio
Call Air Care for Effective Termite Pest Control
Although termites cause widespread damage, the presence of these pests may go undetected for quite some time. Termite infestation can cause thousands of dollars of damage to your home and your home insurance may not cover the cost of remediation.
Termites spread because they live in colonies that release winged males and females every year. These released swarmers settle, shed their wings, and start a new colony. You can have dozens of colonies causing damage throughout your home.
Signs that you may have termites in your home include:
- Droppings that resemble sawdust or coffee grounds
- Discarded wings, which are evidence of swarmers in your home
- Hollowed or damaged wood
- Dirt tubes that termites use for travel
- Blisters in wood flooring

Types of Termites
Three types of termites are prevalent in the United States. They all focus on eating cellulose-based materials, such as wood, paper, cloth, cardboard, carpet, and more.
Subterranean termites live in colonies underground and are the most common type of termite in the United States. There are many species of this kind of pest, and they must have a moist environment to thrive.
Drywood termites create colonies in wood above ground. They don’t need contact with soil but still need a damp environment to thrive.
Dampwood termites make their homes in damp, decaying wood. To survive, these bugs need the highest humidity levels of all types of termites.
