Termite Control

Does termite damage worry you?

If so, you are not alone. Every year termites cause billions of dollars in structural damage.

Signs of termite activity are typically noticed on the first floor of the structure, signs of termites include:

  • Appearance of swarmers, which closely resemble swarming ants
  • In the case of underground termites, the appearance of mudtubes on foundation walls or other areas (floor joists, roof rafters, support columns, etc.)
  • Damage to wooden portions of the structure, the hollowing out of wood within the structure
  • Potential Harm
  • Extensive structural damage
  • Damage to paper record storage
  • Inspection

When it comes to termites, it can be difficult to know when you’ve got an infestation and what requires professional service. We look for various signs of termite infestations when we conduct our free termite inspections. These signs include discarded wings on floors and window sills. Also, the presence of mud-colored tunnels is evidence that termites have entered the home.
