Termites in Iowa - Don't mistake a termite issue for a carpenter ant issue. The treatment for the two insects are very different. If you treat for carpenter ants and you actually have a termite problem, it could allow the termites to continue to do their damage without being bothered and you would also lose money spent on a carpenter ant treatment.
You should always hire a qualified pest inspector to evaluate your entire home. But if you ever find yourself in the circumstance, use the chart below to help you identify the termite/carpenter ant in their winged stage. Questions? Contact us!
