Sleep Tight Termite!
Termites are referred to as "silent destroyers" they do so much damage without home owners even aware of their presence!
The Queen: Giving life to the colony
The function of the Queen and King in the termite colony is to reproduce. Starting out life as an Alate, they leave their parents' colony, drop to the ground and shed their wings to seek out an environment to nest. They care for their young until they are able to take over the duties of the colony.
The Workers: Sustaining Life to the Colony
The workers make up the largest number within a colony. They do all of the work (except defend and reproduce): feeding, grooming, excavating the nest and making tunnels. In doing their jobs, they cause the destruction that effects so many homes.
Soldiers: The colony's defense
Soldiers defend the colony against attack by predatory enemies such as ants, and are equipped with large jaws, sticky fluids or chemical spray to do so.
Swarmers: The future Queens & Kings
Alates are the winged reproductives that swarm out from the nest and establish new colonies. Male and females pair off and look for a suitable environment to mate. They are often confused with ant swarmers.

What to look for
Mud tubes on wall - Subterranean termites build shelter tubes made of mud, dirt and debris in order to travel to and fro the food source without being seen. These tubes are about the size of a coin and are usually found on exterior and interior walls leading up to the entry points of the building.
Sightings of termite swarmers (flying termites) or discarded wings – Usually the first sign of infestation noticed by property owners are the presence of swarmers or alates. Another common indication is the remnants of discarded wings on windowsills and floors. While they may quickly disappear after they found their mating partner, the identical and disembodied wings are sure signs of an indoor termite swarm.
Papery or hollow sounding timber - Termites usually consume woods from the inside out, leaving a thin veneer of timber or paint. So when you knock or tap on an area that has termite damages, it will sound hollow or papery due to parts (or all) of the timber having been eaten away.
Tight fitting door or hard to open window - As termites devour timber, their excrement or ‘mud’ creates a protective environment that traps heat and moisture. This causes timber to swell, making it harder to open or close the infested windows and doors.
Tunnels in the wood - Also known as 'galleries' which are quite difficult to see from the outside.
Termites eat 24-hours-a-day, 7-days-a-week. This means they are constantly consuming wood and damaging it. If left untreated, termites can weaken the wood within your home leading to very expensive damage to the structure.

How subterranean TERMITE Treatment Works?
The VEKCOR PEST SOLUTIONS treatment creates a treated zone around the perimeter of your premises by injecting termicide into the ground to form a barrier between the soil and building structure. This can be applied under a concrete floor or around the foundations of the building both prior to or after construction.
As termites workers tunnel through treated zones in search of food, they are exposed to the terMICIDE. The termicide is not only ingested, but also adheres to their bodies. The affected termites then spread the active ingredient to other termites through physical contact.
