Time To Remove The Termites

Termites can eat you out of house and home if they go undetected for long. You may not even know they have moved in until they have caused a substantial amount of damage. This is why you need a termite inspection on a regular basis to keep your home termite-free.


A professional termite inspection is especially important if you don’t see any termites. There are several types of termites, including drywood and subterranean termites, that you could be unknowingly feeding. You may also have several colonies in different places as well as a variety of types of termites. By the time they make an appearance inside or outside your home, they could have already caused structural damage.

When you request a termite inspection, the technician will find any active termite infestations. They may be able to determine if your house has structural damage and how serious it is. A good inspector will also be able to give you recommendations for how to fix the damage.

After the inspection, the technicians will discuss the issues with you, so you can ask questions about treatments. In many cases, the technicians will give you a written report that gives details about your termite infestations and offers several possible solutions.

A good termite-control company will put the safety and health of your home above all else. In many cases, they will give you a free inspection. You may want to ask about the technicians qualifications, and if they have state licenses. They may have passed exams that cover a variety of subjects related to pest control.

It is also important to ask about the products and methods they use to remove the termites. There are several environmentally friendly, non-toxic ways to dispose of the pests that don’t pollute your indoor air or the outdoor soil.
