Termites are a huge risk for homeowners in Massachusetts. These destructive pests cause over $5 billion in damages in the U.S. each year, and many home-insurance policies don’t even cover termite damage repair costs.

Subterranean termites in Massachusetts are very active. The only area that really gets any respite from them is Cape Cod. They may still be found there, but not as often. As for the rest of the state, subterranean termites are a real danger to properties. Termite treatments are of the utmost importance if your property develops an infestation.
Drywood termites are not native to Massachusetts. There’s a small chance they can be transported here in furniture or other wooden objects, but termite infestations in Massachusetts homes are most likely to be subterranean termites.

Subterranean termites live underground. After a rainfall, they’re forced out of the soil and they swarm. During this time, winged termites will mate. They will spread out and find new locations. This swarm is a group of termites looking for a new colony, and the swarm only lasts about a half-hour. They usually fly toward the light, so you might see them near your windows or your glass doors.
Homeowners will often come home from work to find dead swarmers in or around the house, and that’s usually how you know they’ve left one area of your house in search of a new spot. Dead swarmers are sometimes the only time you see termites in the home before you discover any real damage.
Swarmers, though, aren’t the only sign of damage. Cracked paint may also indicate that you have termites. Termites need moisture to survive and, as a result, the galleries they create in the wood have that moisture inside them. The moisture inside the painted wood can sometimes bubble to the surface, causing your paint to bubble as well.
A Wood Destroying Insects inspection, or WDI, simply requires that a home inspection for pests be performed. This type of home inspection won’t be limited to just termites. We also look for other wood destroying insects like carpenter bees, carpenter ants, and powder post beetles.
This is performed because these types of wood destroying insects can go unseen for months or even years, while they are causing structural damage to your home. These pests cause about $2 billion in damage every year.
The longer termites are left unattended in your home, the more damage they can do to its resale value and your sanity. If you need fast relief from termites, Ransford has you covered. When you partner with us for your termite treatment, you can expect the following conveniences:

Many store-bought and DIY termite treatments in Massachusetts don’t get to the root of the problem.
