Termite Inspection: What to Expect

Detecting indications of termite damage requires the trained eye of an expert termite inspector. Our professional termite inspectors know just what to search for and where to look when performing a household termite inspection. They will look for signs of both subterranean and drywood termites, high and low. They will carefully examine all potentially infested areas and provide you a detailed summary of where they detected issues, along with suggestions for the best course of action. Depending on the size and conditions, average termite or pest inspections take about 30 to 45 minutes for a comprehensive inspection. That’s the procedure you should expect, whether you plan to DIY your termite inspection or employ a professional pest control company.

They are here to answer your queries and guide you through every phase of the termite inspection in your home or property.

Signs Of A Termite Infestation

Here are some usual signs of a termite infestation that inspectors watch out for:

Heaps of wings around doorways and windows sills

During a termite’s reproductive stage, they use their wings to travel and search for mates. Once fertilization happens, they discard their wings, gathering in areas where they have formed a nest. If you or our technician locates wings, the actual termites are probably not that far. Our termite inspections will be able to resolve this.

Mud tunnels along with foundations and other entry points

Termites are sly insects. If they bump into something they can’t chew through, they will quickly build a bridge like concrete. Mud tunnels are like termite roads that keep them secured and allow them to get in contact with the wood in your home. The tunnels are made from wood, soil and other organic material, giving them a brown color. These will be more evident during the termite inspection. Mud tubes are a clear indicator of subterranean termites, but their absence does not necessarily indicate that you are free of termites.

Mud in cracks and crevices

A humid and warm environment is perfect for termites. They hate getting cold, so they will use mud to fill-in cracks and crevices along construction joints for them to create a more cozy nest. Inspectors will look for any signs of mud build-up in certain areas to see if termites have settled in.

Weak wood and dry rot

Sadly, termite damage can be difficult to detect just by looking at a structure’s surface. Termites devour the inside of the wood, making it tedious to see pathways. The direct connection between the subterranean termites in the soil and the structure is when a trellis or wood fence touches the ground. A professional will be able to pat pieces of wood and listen for a sound that signifies hollow wood. It’s surefire signs of termite activity and infestations if you strike your wood, and it sounds hollow. A well-trained ear can identify damaged wood during a termite inspection.

After Termite Extermination Treatments

Even if your home has already completed a termite treatment, you may need a ongoing termite monitoring plan and round of treatment. To fix areas that pose a risk of infestation, competent pest control companies may help. The weather conditions, the severity of the previous infestation and the skillfulness of your last exterminator can all influence how long your treatment lasts. Your best initiative is to schedule an annual termite inspection with Total Termite & Pest Control. Regularly inspecting your residence and observing for signs of termite damage is the best means for protecting your investment. Arrange routine termite protection and inspection with us today!
