Are termites infesting your home? Get the facts.

“Do I have termites?”

We get this question a lot. Spring just passed, so termites have started new colonies. One of their colonies could be in your yard or home. Here are some ways to tell if your residence or office may have been infested:

  • If you have found winged termites near or around your home; this means they have found their way into your house.
  • If you find mud “tubes” around the foundation of your house; termites use these “tubes” to safely travel to and from the structure and their colonies.

During a professional termite inspection, your technician will be able to provide you with more evidence of termites. Be warned, many of the treatments sold in stores will not take care of the long-term problem!

How do I get rid of them?

If it turns out that you do have termites, ensure they are exterminated by following these steps:

  • Don’t panic! While termites cause $2 billion in damage each year, keep your head straight.
  • Call a professional. They can decide which treatment is best for your situation, which could either be exterior perimeter treatment or interior spot treatment.
  • After the treatment, be sure to have regular inspections to make sure the termites do not return.

Termite presence can remain undetected for many years. To confirm whether or not you are dealing with termites, you should hire an expert to inspect your home.
