How can termites enter my home?

Termites can enter homes with just 1/32 of an inch opening. In addition:

  • Termites follow tree roots and construction conduits such as pipes and footers to gain entry into homes.
  • Termites constantly forage and evaluate the size and quality of food resources as they seek out cellulose.
  • The Advance® Termite Bait System can intercept colonies before they reach your home. 

It is recommended that a professional inspect your home to identify the presence of termites.

 

How can you tell if they are present in or near your home?

Unfortunately, there may be no warning signs but look for these:

  • Termites “swarming” during the day and often after rainfall.
  • Termite evidence in or around windows and doorframes.
  • “Mud tunnels” appearing on or around the foundation.
  • Baseboards and floors which may sound hollow.
  • Dead termites or termite wings on window sills or along walls.

Most importantly, call a licensed and trained pest management professional who can inspect your home and assess what level of termite protection is needed.

 

How much damage can termites do to your home?

Termites cause nearly $2 billion in damage annually according to research. Unfortunately, without annual inspections, termites can go unnoticed for years while continuing to damage your home.

In addition:

  • Most homeowner insurance policies do not cover termite damage.
  • Termites cause damage in hidden areas, behind walls, in crawl spaces and basements.
  • Many pest management professionals offer annual inspection services and treatment guarantees.
  • The best solution to potentially avoid termite damage is a professional, thorough annual inspection and a termite bait system to detect termite populations and eliminate them around your home.
