Find Out If Your Home Has Termites

Your home is ten times more likely to be damaged by termites than by fire! Every year, America spends five billion dollars exterminating termites and repairing damage the damage they cause. Only a licensed termite inspector can determine the extent of your termite infestation. However, you can detect the presence of termites quite easily. Look around your home for these tell-tale signs of termite activity:

  • Mud Tubes - Subterranean termites build shelter tubes to gain access to your home.
  • Kick-Out Holes - As termites tunnel through wood, they use kick out holes to discard fecal pellets and frass.
  • Pellets - As termites tunnel through wood, they push fecal pellets into small mounds.
  • Wood Damage - All termites tunnel through wood, weakening the structure of your home.
  • Swarmers - Winged reproductive termites appear after periods of heavy rain or in late summer / early fall.
  • Wings - After reproductive termites mate, they shed their wings typically around doors, windows or attic spaces.

Termite Treatment Options

Fumigation Eliminates Every Termite

Fumigation fully eradicates Drywood termites. Vikane rapidly penetrates through wood members of the structure to kill termites by suffocation. After fumigation, Vikane leaves no residues behind, a common concern with fumigants.

Local Treatments - Isolated Termite Infestations

Depending on accessibility, secondary termite treatments can also be utilized to eradicate small isolated infestations of termites. These treatments vary based on location and species of termites found within the structure.

After your home is free of termites, we can also repair any damaged left behind. We are licensed by the Contractors State License Board to perform quality structural repairs. Our in-house construction department is staffed with specialists who can restore the integrity and appearance of your home.
