Termites are wood-destroying insects common in most of Oklahoma. They cause millions of dollars in damage annually.The probability that termites will attack wooden structures within 10 to 20 years of being built is greater than 70% in Oklahoma. Termite attacks may begin as early as one year after construction. Let The Bug Guy help you with our professional line of defense. We treat termites where they live using only the industries best product, Termidor, to stop termites dead in their tracks!
Within a termite nest there are members of different castes, each with a different role to perform and all interdependent upon each other for survival of the colony. These include the queen, king, the winged reproductive (young kings and queens), soldier and worker termites.

Termites, sometimes incorrectly called white ants, are a group of social insects usually classified at the taxonomic rank of order Isoptera. Termites mostly feed on dead plant material, generally in the form of wood, leaf litter, or soil, and about 10% of the 4,000 odd species (about 2,600 taxonomically known) are economically significant as pests that can cause serious structural damage to buildings, crops or plantation forests. Termites are major detrivores in Oklahoma homes and dwellings, and their recycling of wood and other plant matter is of considerable ecological importance.
- The main destructive termite species in Oklahoma is the Eastern subterranean termite. It is critical to identify the species of destructive termites in order to formulate an appropriate control program. The Bug Guy will evaluate your termite situation and choose the most effective means of elimination.
- Termites like to live on a place or area with a humid climate - one in which there is sufficient amount of moisture. The soil, is in fact, an ideal place for the subterranean species, precisely because it offers just the right ventilation for air to pass through, at the same time, it holds a certain amount of moisture, which keeps them cool during warm seasons.
- Where moisture regularly collects inside the wall or other cavities of a building, i.e. from faulty plumbing or broken roof tiles, the Eastern subterranean termite can develop a subsidiary colony nest which may not require contact with the ground to ensure it's survival.
The difference between termites and ants:
High Risk Areas
You may find termites in the following areas in and around your home:
- Wooden Posts
- Floor Trim
- Wood Siding
- Window Frames
- Hot Water Pipes
- Tree Stumps
- Fallen Limbs and Branches
- Landscaping Timbers

Eastern subterranean termites have acute survival instincts. If they are shaken up or disturbed, the termites often will abandon the associated area and move on to secretly cause damage in other areas in the building. If you find eastern subterranean termites in or around your property, it is essential that you do NOT disturb them and promptly arrange for our professional termite inspections and applications of Termidor termite treatments guaranteed to work.
