We Take Termites Seriously

Subterranean termites have a colony within the soil. From their underground colony there are tunnels that radiate out in all directions, through which these termites forage for sources of wood. Many of these termites are pale or whitish in color, possibly a form of adaptation in living underground with no light.


They may seem harmless but they will take a toll on your property insidiously. Book our termite control services today at D2B Pest Control of Southern Indiana, LLC in Washington, Indiana!


After a thorough inspection, we provide you with treatment options for your commercial or residential property. One option would be to provide you with a liquid barrier contained in the soil against your foundation that will kill them off as they go back and forth. Another option would be the can-type baiting system.

What Are Subterranean Termites?

It is a common trait of subterranean termites to build shelter tubes when they have to go to overexposed areas. In heavy infestations, these “mud tubes” are very noticeable. These tubes allow the termites to cross exposed surfaces without getting seen, and they serve as protection from dessication.


Due to their underground habits, many species have evolved to have pale color, leading people to refer to them as “white ants”. It is worth noting that there are some areas in a house or building that subterranean termites use frequently to gain entry. Examples are:

  • Along electrical conduits built into the wall
  • Along water pipes (especially those built into walls bases of doorframes)
  • Basements
  • Stairways
  • Crevices, gaps, and cracks in wall and foundation masonry
