Signs You Have a Termite Infestation
The best way to avoid a termite problem is to schedule an annual termite inspection that will give you peace of mind and ensure that you neither have an infestation nor are prone to one. It’s also a good idea as a homeowner to keep an eye on your house and property and call us about a residential termite treatment at the first signs of trouble. May and June mark the height of termite activity in the region, but you should start looking for signs in February and keep looking until summer draws to a close. You may actually see swarmers active near your home. Discarded wings are a telltale sign, and you may notice mud tubes or frass, which is the technical term for termite droppings. You should also be mindful that termite damage can often seem like wear and tear, such as stuck windows and doors and paint or wallpaper that is discolored, bubbling, peeling, sunken in, or marked by pinholes or winding lines.
The Damages Termites Can Cause
As mentioned earlier, the initial stages of termite damage can look a lot like the wear and tear that occurs to homes over time. It’s also important to note that termites not only eat wood but any cellulose-based material and can thus infest carpeting, old newspapers, and the like. As termite damage progresses, the structural wood in your home may weaken, and you’ll be able to hear a hollow sound when you tap on it. Termite damage can look a lot like rotten wood at times. It can also allow moisture intrusion, which leads to mold and fungal growth and makes the issues difficult to distinguish from water damage.
Homeowner insurance policies rarely extend to termite damage, which is why we offer and recommend termite warranties. A common option is a retreatment termite warranty. This protects you in the event of a reemergence as we’ll perform a subsequent residential termite treatment at no cost to you. If your home has ever had termite damage or is prone to it, you may also want to consider a damage termite warranty. This coverage pays for the remediation of wood damage and other destruction.
Our services at Ledford’s aren’t limited to residential termite treatment. We also provide a full range of commercial pest control services and have been serving businesses and other organizations in this region for decades. Businesses often require pest control that is tailored to their specific options, and we do that for all types of companies, including restaurants, bars, retail shops, medicinal facilities, and so forth.
