SOUTHERN PINES Wood Destroying Insects

LESS USUAL SUSPECTS: Wood Eating Ants, Carpenter Bees and More

In Southern Pines, North Carolina, termites often dominate the conversation when it comes to wood destruction.

While their notoriety is well-earned, they’re not the only culprits threatening our homes. Carpenter ants, carpenter bees, and wood boring beetles are lesser-known but equally capable of causing significant damage to your property, leading to expensive repairs.

At Terminix, we specialize in comprehensive wood-destroying insect control. Our approach is tailored to the unique challenges faced by Southern Pines homeowners, ensuring your property remains protected against the full spectrum of wood-damaging pests. We’re not just solving today’s problem; we’re safeguarding your home for the future.


Be your home’s best advocate by learning these tell-tale signs of wood-destroying insects common in Southern Pines. Here are key indicators for homeowners in Southern Pines, NC, to watch for:

  • Hollow-Sounding Wood: Tap on wooden structures; a hollow sound may indicate internal damage from termites or carpenter ants.
  • Discarded Wings: Look for piles of wings near windows, doors, or other entry points, a common sign of termites.
  • Small Holes in Wood: Carpenter bees and wood boring beetles often leave behind small, round holes in wooden surfaces.
  • Visible Damage: Check for cracks, holes, or weakened wood, especially in basements, attics, and crawl spaces.
  • Buzzing Sounds: Listen for buzzing or drilling noises near wood structures, indicating the presence of carpenter bees.
  • Tunnels in Wood: Visible tunnels or galleries inside wood can point to various wood destroying insects.

By staying vigilant and recognizing these signs, you can protect your home from extensive damage.
