Termite Activity Still High in Broken Arrow
It seems that with all the rains we had this summer termite activity is still high in the Broken Arrow metro areas. A number of calls have been coming in for termites this fall when activity for these pests drops in fall. The typical termite season runs from about mid February through July then this tapers off in August as the rains have ended and things dry up. We had one of the wettest August months in many years and this continued into September which means a higher water tables and moist soil.
Termites are nothing new to Broken Arrow as we live in a very high activity zone. These pests are responsible for billions of dollars each year in damages to homes. This is why EnviroTech Exterminating suggests homeowners have yearly termite inspections done. If you have a termite concern please visit Termite Services for more information or call (918) 282-7621 to speak to our representatives about your unique pest termite issue.

Termite Swarmers are Active in Broken Arrow, Oklahoma
The number of calls for Termites has spiked as of this week. We are seeing a number of homes with termite swarmers also called Alates. These termites are reproductive termites and when you have a swarm it’s an indicator that you have termites. If they are found outside It could also mean somebody near you has termites and they have now spread to your home or business.
So what does a termite swarmer or Alate look like? Well, they have white/clear wings that are thin and these wings fall off relatively fast. The termite itself will be darker in color and have a body that is relatively the same width from head to the end of their body.
Termites are sometimes confused for being ants but they are nothing like their ant cousins. Ant’s are more segmented and have a clear break or joint between the head, body and end. Even though we are talking termites here ants can be just as destructive as termites. Carpenter Ants do damage to structures just like termites do. We can assist with both of these pests.
With spring here and more humidity the swarmers are very active. These termite colonies are spreading to start new colonies. Treatment is absolutely necessary and if termite control is what you are needing please call EnviroTech at (918) 282-7621 for a Free Estimate.

With it now almost mid February it’s time to start thinking about termites. Soon with temperatures rising and the humidity rising, termites will begin swarming. A termite swarm happens when a healthy colony of termites have grown to a large enough colony that the termites separate to form additional colonies. They usually don’t make it to far as termites are not the best of flyers and they lose their wings relatively fast.

Termites play a huge part of mother natures natural recycle process. These wood destroying pests eat up wood, rotting wood and any products made of wood to help in cleaning up our planet. These little pests are capable of eating the supports of a house, home, business or any structure if not treated.
When you buy a home most lenders require the home to be inspected for wood destroying organisms. This inspection is called a ODAFF1. The lender doesn’t like to loan money on a home with active termites so they request this inspection. Lenders will happily loan the money on a home that is treated for termites but usually won’t fund the purchase until proof of treatment has been provided. If termites are found and treatment is then provided the lender will require proof and at that time usually fund the purchase pending any other issues.
EnviroTech Exterminating offers wood destroying organism reports or inspections for clients in the process of purchasing a home. If termite activity is found a proposal for treatment can be provided at no additional cost. For those that already own their home EnviroTech does provide services to help protect the home from termite pests. Call (918) 282-7621 today to request an appointment. You can also visit Termite Control for more information about our termite inspection and treatment services.

Termite Treatment and Control in Broken Arrow, OK
Today I got the opportunity to show just how amazing termites really are. To show how they forage, build tubes, tunnels and work. It’s quite amazing how these little insects can be so destructive.
While doing a termite treatment in Broken Arrow, Oklahoma today the customer removed panels from a bathroom tub where a termite swarm recently occurred. While looking the tub over and examining the underneath supports, structure of it, you could see the termite tubes running from the exterior wall along a 2×4 framing board for the tubs support. The termite tube then turned up and along another 2×4 and went the the top of the structure where it then met with a piece of plywood. The termites had eaten away at some of the mid section of the plywood. The termites then moved on and down the other side of the 2×4 down between the outside panel and 2×4 to where it met up with the shower. There was moisture present in this area and reproductive termites were found pouring out of the lower panel that met with the supporting 2×4’s that termite tubes were on.
We provided a Termidor SC Perimeter Treatment to the home and used Termidor Foam in the framing area of the bathroom tub to gain control of the termites as quickly as possible while still allowing the termites time to take the product back with them to the colony.

Are you in the market for a new home? If so then you probably already know that most lenders will require form ODAFF-1 otherwise known as a Wood Infestation Report. This report goes beyond just Termites. Other Wood Infesting Insects such as Wood Boring Beetles, Carpenter Ants and Wood Bee’s can also be part of the inspection.
Other considerations may be for the Moisture Damage, WoodRot Report. If the home is an older home or perhaps has a crawl space then this might be a good addition to your Wood Infestation Report. Termite Insect Damage is different from Moisture Damage.
So what if termite evidence is found during the inspection? A treatment will be called for and once completed another report called an ODAFF-2 will be issued. If termite damage, activity or evidence is found a proper termite treatment quote will be provided.
How long is a ODAFF-1 report good for? 90 days from the date of the inspection is traditionally the time period. The report is good for the purchase of the home inspected.
Is the ODAFF-1 report a warranty? NO, the ODAFF-1 is a report declaring that at the time of inspection no visual evidence of activity was present. It does not mean hidden damage is not present. The inspector does not tear into walls or take apart sections to detect termites. No inspection is 100% fail proof when it comes to termites.
Termites start with a very small colony and can take years to reach detection. Once the first signs of Termites is present usually the colony has grown to thousands if not a hundred thousand or more Termites.
What can be done if Termite activity is found? A Termite Treatment is the only way to protect a home from termites. We offer treatment for any size, type of home.
Why are Termite so prevalent in the Broken Arrow, Bixby and Jenks area? Moderate weather, high humidity, sandy loam soil. There are many factors as to why Oklahoma has so many termites. We are considered a High Activity area.
