At RN Exterminating we offer Chemical and Baiting Termite Control Services with ongoing support and monitering to protect your home from Termites
In the United States, termites cause more damage to homes than storms and fire combined. Often, you won’t actually see termites or a termite swarm, which lasts less than an hour. More likely, you’ll see the evidence of swarming—a sudden appearance of winged termites; piles of small, lacey wings; or the appearance of the mud tunnels that termites build.
A trained pest control technician should be called in to eliminate the colony with pesticides and prevent further damage to your property. At RN Exterminating, we offer a two-year guarantee on all termite treatment jobs throughout Brooklyn, New York, and the surrounding areas, with the option to renew after the guarantee has expired for the current rate.

The Habits of Subterranean Termites
Termites have been around for more than 250 million years, since the dinosaurs, when all they did was devour trees in forests. A queen termite can live up to 25 years, laying up to 60,000 eggs in her lifetime. Termites will travel up to 250 feet from their nests, and research shows that termites work 24 hours per day.
Subterranean termites constantly tunnel from their home in the soil in search of wood to eat. However, they can’t tell the difference between a dead tree and your home. Today, termites eat away at more than 600,000 homes throughout the United States causing more than $5 billion per year in property damage.
All they need is an opening 1/32 inch wide to squeeze inside. If they come across the foundation of your house while foraging, they’ll follow any cracks or crevices to get into your home. Termites may even enter through wood in contact with the soil or by building pencil-sized mud tunnels from ground level to where the house’s wood frame begins. Termites can also enter your home through expansion joints and utility and plumbing openings in the foundation.
Under ideal conditions, a typical termite colony with 250,000 workers can eat about 20 feet of a 2 x 4 board per year—and big colonies can contain up to 1,000,000 members. If you discover evidence of a termite infestation, there’s no need to panic. It’s unlikely the damage will get much worse from the time you first discover termites to the time that your home is treated. Still, stopping the destruction sooner rather than later is important to avoid costly damage and repairs.
