What Kind Of Damage Do Termites Do?

Termites infest all areas of a house that are made of wood. This includes floors, ceilings, roof, support beams, siding, eaves.

We carefully inspect your house for termite evidence and recommend a course of action to eliminate them.


Can A Homeowner Prevent Termite Invasion?


The first and best way to keep termites from invading is to take care of your house. Avoid their access through broken or missing roof tiles or siding. Keeping an eye out for these pests includes seeing piles of insect wings, noticing hollow wood, seeing sagging floorboards. Termites create “mud tubes” to keep their environment moist. These are usually found where the outside ground meets the edge of a wall. Termite droppings, or “frass” look like sawdust. If you see what you think is evidence of termites call a home inspector and they will determine the extent of the invasion. Although you probably cannot completely prevent termites from invading, you can keep your house in the best possible condition, especially its wood construction.
