Signs You Have Termites
Termites are particularly difficult to eradicate because they often go undetected until the infestation is out of control. However, there are several signs you should be aware of that may indicate you have a termite problem.
You may have termites if you find:
- Discarded wings from swarming termites
- Little piles of dust (frass)
- Hollow-sounding wood, such as window and door frames
- Warped hardwood flooring or windows and doors that stick and/or are hard to open
- Live termites or termite larvae (look like white ants)
If you see any of the following symptoms, you should call our termite control team as soon as possible to schedule a termite inspection.
Signs of Subterranean Termites
A major sign that you have subterranean termites is finding mud tubs running up your home’s foundations, or in some cases, up the walls in your basement or home.
Subterranean termites live underground, and they construct these mud tubes to get around your home. Pay particular attention to areas where your home comes in contact with soil, such as your foundations, decking, stairs, etc.
Homebuyer Inspection Period Termite Inspections
If you are considering purchasing or selling a home, we recommend that you schedule a termite inspection during your inspection period (or before listing your home if you have seen signs of termites in the past).
While termite and other pest inspections are not required as part of the home sale process, these inspections can help alert homeowners and buyers to any major termite issues on the property. If termites are found, the parties involved can work to resolve the issue together, helping ensure a smooth transition of ownership.
Pre-Construction Termite Treatment
Similarly, we recommend scheduling pre-construction termite treatments if you are planning to build a new home or other new construction projects. Pre-treating new home builds for termites is becoming incredibly common as termite issues continue to rise across the country and throughout Texas.
One of the most effective treatments is a soil treatment applied before laying a slab foundation. Pre-construction termite treatments can help ensure that your new home never experiences a termite problem.
How to Prevent Termite Infestations
Preventing termite infestations is the first line of defense in protecting your property.
Here are some tips to help prevent termite infestations:
- Remove any wood debris or dead trees from your property, including keeping firewood away from your home or business
- Fix any leaky pipes or faucets that could attract termites
- Seal any cracks or holes in your foundation or walls to prevent colonies of termites from entering
- Use termite-resistant building materials when constructing new buildings or renovating existing ones
How Often Should You Schedule Termite Services?
Even with preventative measures, termites can still find their way into your property. It is recommended to have a termite inspection at least once a year to detect any termite activity early on.
If termites are found, it is best to schedule termite treatments immediately to prevent further damage to your property. However, the frequency of termite treatments depends on the severity of the infestation and the type of treatment used.
The experienced pest control professionals at Chem-Tech Pest & Grounds Care can recommend the best treatment plan for your specific situation. Protecting your property from termite damage is essential for maintaining its value and structural integrity.
