Morrisville Termite Control
For homeowners that live in Morrisville North Carolina, the convenience to Raleigh, the airport, Cary, Durham and Chapel Hill is all within a very short drive, which is why Morrisville has enjoyed some incredible growth over the past 10 years. Morrisville is flanked to the west with NC540 and to the east with I40 which provides the residents with quick access to the surrounding area. Home and business developers have recognized that this easy access is highly desirable to commuters who work in the Research Triangle, so much of the wooded areas throughout Morrisville have been cleared to make way for upscale communities that cater to professionals. Although this expansive growth has benefits for increasing profits to local businesses, the displacement of the forests lends to shifting native species of termites from the trees that were once their home to now seeking the new homes as their source of food.
Buying a new home in Morrisville may or may not be built entirely from wood in order to be a haven for termites. Homes constructed using masonry still utilize wood for framing, which is susceptible to termites, so whether or not your home is built from brick or wood shouldn’t keep you from checking to make sure termites haven’t moved into your home and are eating away at your investment. We’ve included some self help solutions list below on how you can check for termites, but the absolute best way is to call EcoTek and get a free termite inspection done. It’s worth the piece of mind you’ll gain if you don’t have termites, and if you do have a termite infestation it can be resolved quickly to avoid further damage.

How to Determine if You Have Termites
Many homeowners just expect they don’t have a termite issue until they locate a colony of termites beneath their house, within a room, or they see termite dirt tubes similar to the picture below. By the time it’s realized there are termites inside your home it’s completely too late, and the termite infestation has by then done thousands of dollars in structural harm to the home or business.
- Discarded Wings
When termites leave their nests to start a new colony they fly only a short distance, and then discard their wings close to an access point because they won’t use them again.
- Mud Tubes
Pencil sized tubes next to building access points. Break them in the middle to see if termites come out.
- Wood Damage
Usually below and behind surfaces . Damage shows up in long grooves.
