4 Things To Expect From Your Termite Inspection


Hiring a professional pest control company for a termite inspection is a must if you notice any signs of termites. These signs include wood shavings, the termites coming out themselves or termite shelter tunnels, which are noticeable around the foundation of the home since they bulge from the surface. Here are four things you can expect once the professionals show up for inspection:

  1. Look for More Than Termites: First off, many of the signs of termites could actually be the cause from some other type of wood eating pest. The professionals are going to look into this to ensure that they are utilizing the right treatment for your home in getting rid of these pests. On top of this, many times when you have termites, there is also something else since termites can easily pave the way for other pests to enter the home.
  2. Look for the Source: Next, the professionals are going to determine why termites have invaded your home in the first place. This way, these things can be addressed to ensure that once you have the termites treated, they are much less likely to return. For example, many professionals upon inspection find that the reason the termites are probably present is because of firewood stacked against the side of the house, holes or cracks in the foundation. The professionals will ensure that you know what to do to fix these issues. 
  3. Look Around the Property: On top of looking around the foundation of the home for issues, the professionals will also inspect your property since another reason termites are present is because of dead trees. First the termites invade the dead trees and then they make their way to the home. If this is the case, you will need to have the tree removed from your property by tree removing professionals. 
  4. Look for Other Pests: Finally, the professionals are going to look for other pests including bats, rats, and mice. This way, treatment can be used at the same time for these pests, which is more cost effective. This then ensures that once you hire the pest control company for termite treatment, they are leaving your home completely pest free. 

Now that you know what you can expect from a termite inspection, you can see why it's important to have this done as soon as you notice any sign of termites. At this point, your home is going to be completely pest free in no time.
