Our Termite Control Specialists Are Here to Help

When you need professional termite control, Terminix Canada is here to help. In short, no other pest causes quite as much damage as termites do. In North America, termite infestations cause big problems like damaging the entire structure of your home. Termites eat through your wooden floors, furniture, window frames, doors, and anywhere else in your home where there’s wood. Once termites have gotten into your home, they’re very difficult to get rid of. Preventative measures are key in controlling termites and keeping them out of your home.

Once you’ve discovered you have a termite infestation, it’s very important to call termite control specialists immediately. Terminix Canada’s qualified team will get rid of termites in your home, as well as setting up preventative steps to ensure you don’t face another termite infestation.

Termites In Canada


Size: 6 mm to 20 mm.

Colour: Can vary in colour from light brown to almost black.

Behaviour: Termites live in colonies, sharing a similar social caste to ants except they don’t have a queen. They must live in warm and humid environments, as their colonies are prone to dying out.

Frequently Asked Questions

Termites are more active in temperatures that range from 24°C to 25 °C. In Canada, termites often nest below the frost line and find their way into homes and buildings underground.

If you have a termite infestation, you’ll probably know. They are constantly leaving behind warning signs. Some things to look out for are dry or moist lines of mud anywhere in your home, but especially in the basement or garage. Warped, spotted, discoloured or striped wood may also be a sign of termites. Knocking on wood and hearing a hollow sound can mean you have termite damage.

Termites can cause massive damage to your home as they have a never-ending appetite and constantly feast on wood. They eat your wood from the inside out, making it hard to spot them until the damage has already been done. Some termites shed their wings as they take flight, so if you spot piles of tiny insect wings around your house, you likely have termites.

If your home is climate controlled year-round, like most homes, it creates optimal temperatures for termites to live in. If you have any excess moisture in your home, drainage issues, or condensation around or under your foundation, you run the risk of attracting termites.

Termites are attracted to any and all wood. Therefore, your framing, landscaping and any outdoor firewood are all appealing to them. They can enter your home through the smallest of cracks or openings.

To prevent your home from being invaded by termites, it’s a good idea to alter the areas outside your home to make it less appealing to them. Get rid of any excess wood lying around your home such as firewood. Make sure your plumbing is working properly and get rid of any leaky pipes.
