The Rundown on Termites

Every year termites do more damage than all the fires, floods, and hurricanes combined. This is not so surprising when you consider that termites, found in every US state besides Alaska, eat non-stop, 24 hours each day, seven days a week!

Termites cause American homeowners and businesses several billion dollars worth of damages each year, and most homeowners insurance does not cover the cost of termite damage.

Termites and damages done by termites are serious business.

You are in the Termite Zone!
If your home or business is located within the Thompson Brothers service area of South Carolina and North Carolina, then you are at risk of termite infestation. And chances are your home or business is offering termites exactly what they need to survive: food, moisture,
shelter, and optimal temperatures.

Colonies can contain up to 1 million termites, and there could be as many as 14 subterranean termite colonies per acre, which gives you an idea of just how many colonies could possibly be situated under your own home and property. Termites, often referred to as the silent destroyers, can hide and live in basements and yards without any obvious or immediate signs of damage. By the time you notice damage to your home’s wood, the damage is most likely extensive and may already have reached the point where it will be costly to repair.

Warning Signs
So now that you are aware that you may be vulnerable to hosting termites in or around your home or business, you'll want to take note of some of the warning signs of termite infestation.

  • A swarm of long-winged small insects emerging from either inside or outside your home

  • Small piles of wings left behind from swarms of termites

  • Wood damage.

  • Tunnels or bridges leading to and from the colony in the soil and the wood they consume.

  • Termite droppings around your home.


If you notice any of these warning signs, don’t hesitate to contact a licensed, respected pest control services firm for a termite inspection.

Sharon P, Waterproofing & Repair

We had extensive water intrusion that our inspector did not see. Thompson Brothers had to engage in grading, extensive digging, reinstallation of French drains, and install a new drainage field. The work was excellent. All personnel is polite, on time, and very professional. Highly recommend.
