A+ Pest Control knows that termites are a serious problem. We offer preventive treatments that protect your home from termite infestation or we can rid your home of a current one. A current termite infestation may need attention right away. They can cause home damage, sometimes in a relatively short amount of time. Unfortunately, with termites, “out of sight” should not mean “out of mind.” Termites are difficult to find if you don’t know what to look for, and even then, can be difficult to spot. A+ Pest Control has professional technicians trained to spot infestations of termites in and around your home. If you think you may have termites, give us a call to schedule a free termite inspection.

where we look
We will inspect many aspects of your home looking for signs of termites or termite damage. We usually start our termite inspection by looking for mud tubes around your home. As we inspect the exterior of your home will look at wood piles and debris near the foundation, including tree stumps and other potential food sources. Then we inspect common termite ‘hot spots’ such as where the garage and home connect, where the front porch and home meet, or other areas concrete meets wood. Subterranean termites will usually enter your home from wooden elements of construction that are underground, so we will inspect crawl spaces or basements especially closely. As we inspect window sills and frames, support posts, sub floors, supporting piers, joists, and wooden decks or porches you may notice us tapping different areas with a knife or screwdriver. Wood that is damaged has a different sound or will be soft and can alert us to areas that need closer inspection.
Termites can remain hidden for years within walls and floors in your home. If you see signs of termite activity or are worried about an infestation, call us today for a free termite inspection or a protection plan. Regular termite inspections can find infestations before serious damage is caused. Our local company will take a personal approach to protecting your home from pest invaders.
