Not Sure If You Have Termites? Why You Need An Inspection And What Signs You Should Watch Out For

Termites are a nasty pest to have invade your home. These pests will chew and eat through the wood in your home, which is usually damaged already, but the damage that they can cause can be catastrophic. The damage caused by termites can leave you with a number of repair bills and could also leave you without your home while repairs are being made and the termites are being exterminated. If you suspect that you have termites, you should have your home inspected. Read on for reasons why you should have your home inspected and signs you need to be aware of that may indicate a termite problem.

Why Have An Inspection?

A termite inspection is something all homeowners should have done to their homes at some point in time. Older homes that have had water damage in the past should have their homes inspected to be sure there aren't any termite problems. Homes with issues with moisture should also be inspected regularly to be sure these pests have not invaded their homes. You should also have your homes inspected if you are going to be buying or selling your home. If you are buying a home, you should have it inspected to have the repairs made by the seller so you don't have to, and if you're selling, you should have an inspection performed on your home, so you don't have to pay for any repair costs later down the road from the new owners. An inspection is not that costly, and it can save you thousands of dollars.

What Are The Signs Of A Termite Infestation?

Termites are easily looked over, as they travel mostly underground. These subterranean pests will build mud tunnels in which to travel to and from your home to their colony. Termites can also fly, and you may be mistaking them for other pests such as flying ants, which do appear to be very similar to a termite. These pests leave behind signs, such as sawdust piles, termite wings, and hollowed-out wood — you may also see their mud tunnels or even deceased termites. If you spot any of the signs of termite damage or the signs of the termites themselves, you should call a professional exterminator for help.

If you have an issue with termites, or you suspect that you have them, hire a pest and termite control company to have your home inspected and prevent costly repairs to your home.
