Are you looking for professional, reliable termite removal in Dallas? We can help.
Termites are a common pest in the Dallas area, and while they don’t bite, they do strike fear for another reason: property damage. These wood-destroying pests can cause unseen structural damage that costs thousands of dollars to repair.
Whether you have an active infestation or want to stop one before it starts, the professionals at Moxie Pest Control can help.
Termite activity can be hard to spot since these pests often begin their damage at ground level underneath homes. As they feed, they create sawdust-like droppings, called frass, which can be seen by the naked eye. They also create visible mud tubes, mud-covered tunnels on surfaces so they can travel between food sources. You may also notice small piles of wings or even termites themselves (often looking like a winged ant) when termites swarm.
If you spot any of these signs of termite activity around your home or business, contact a pest professional for assistance.
Termites, like all pests, are constantly in search of food, water, and shelter. The more you can do to prevent access to these items on your property, the less likely you are to encounter these pests.
Termites often look for damp areas when building their colonies, making water-damaged or moist wood ideal food sources. Remove or replace water-damaged wood around your home and repair leaks. Regularly inspect attics, basements, garages, decks, and other parts of your home for rotten wood or unseen moisture leaks and drips. Ensuring proper drainage and ventilation can also help prevent termites from building underground nests on damp soil.
Termites feast on wood, and they’re not picky where that wood comes from. Branches, wood logs, architectural salvage, and construction debris can all attract these wood-destroying insects. Promptly remove these items from your property and dispose of them properly to avoid attracting termites.
The closer a wood structure is to the soil, the higher the chances of a termite infestation. Keep that in mind when building exterior sheds, doghouses, swing sets, and other wooden structures. Raising wooden structures above the ground can help deter termites, so consider using stones or a concrete pad as a foundation for your builds.

Our climate here in Dallas is the main reason why termite activity is so pronounced. Texas has a humid subtropical climate with hot summers and mild winters, leading to prolific termite breeding and high activity.
Termites are generally most active in the spring through the fall. Additionally, they’re more likely to swarm after a rainfall on a warm day. However, due to our mild climate, termites can even be active in the winter in heated buildings.
Maintain your peace of mind with Moxie Pest Control’s reliable, year-round termite service. Our termite bait stations blend seamlessly with landscaping and provide 24/7 proven termite protection.
