No pest is quite as infamous as the termite. Capable of destroying the very structure of homes if left untreated, termites can cause a lot of damage that is costly to repair. In fact, termites cause U.S. homeowners nearly $5 billion in damages each year. Even worse—homeowner’s insurance doesn’t cover the costs! Regular inspections are the key to preventing termites, saving yourself from the costs and frustrations of an infestation. Springer Professional Home Services is committed to protecting you from termites year-round.
When to call a termite exterminator
Inspecting your home for termites
If you’re buying or selling a home, it’s important to call a professional to inspect the property for signs of termites. When we inspect your home, we will visually examine the inside and outside of your building for evidence, including the bugs themselves, exit holes, conducive conditions, wings, and damage. Seeing termite damage is difficult without the help of a trained professional, which is why Springer provides regular termite inspection services.
Common signs of a termite infestation
While termites are notoriously hard to spot, it’s important to know the signs that may help you stop an infestation in the early stages:
- Mud tubes outside your home.
- Piles of termite feces, or frass, underneath entrances into the wood
- Hollow-sounding wood
- Piles of wings shed by swarmer termites
