Termite Control Cary
Located just west of Raleigh and east of Apex: Cary, North Carolina has long been a major area of growth due to the convenience it has to the Research Triangle, RDU, and both businesses and shopping in Raleigh. Cary has several upscale neighborhoods where million dollar homes are not uncommon, such as MacGregor Downs, Preston, and Lochmere. Although quite a few homes in Cary are built using brick, the vast majority of the older homes in Cary were built using timber with wooden foundations. What most people don’t know is that even brick homes are susceptible to termites.
Many Cary homeowners that own brick homes or concrete homes automatically assume their house is impervious to termites since the exterior is not made of wood, but since the interior and framework is made of wood, once termites have accessed the home, then damage can occur that can run into thousands of dollars of repair costs. Wherever wood exists in a home, termites will eventually find it since it’s their primary source of food. There are however some precautions you can take to first see if your home already has termites, and how you can get rid of them if they have infested your home. The Cary EcoTek termite control team will not only exterminate the termites, but they can also clean up all their debris and repair termite damage done to your home.

How to Determine if You Have Termites
Quite a few homeowners simply expect they don’t have a termite issue until they discover a colony of termites under their house, within a room, or they see termite mud tubes similar to the image below. By the time it’s noticed there are termites in the house it’s far too late, and the termite infestation has already done thousands of dollars in structural damage to the house 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.

Frequently Asked Questions
I have a new home. Do I need to worry about termite inspections?
We recommend having termite inspection every year. This will allow you to catch any termite infestations more quickly. Termites do not care about the age of your home. The spring is a good time to schedule an inspection.
Will my home value drop if we find termites?
Your home’s value will drop if you have an active termite infestation and damage from termites. You will not be able to sell your home until you address the issue and the sooner termite damage is found, the less you will need to pay in repairs. After the repairs are completed, your home’s value should return to what it was before.
I’m worried about children’s safety. Can they be home during treatment?
It is safe for your children to be home during a treatment. Our safety is important to you, which is why we chose Termidor SC, which is not only effective, but also very safe. Our technicians are trained on the proper way to complete the treatment to keep your family safe.
Should I plan on being home during an inspection?
You will need to be home during each treatment. The treatments will take between 30 to 60 minutes. You need to be home to be sure that the technician has access to your attic, crawlspace and other areas of your home that may show termite activity.
Is my home still safe after termites have done damage?
Termites can make your home unsafe, but it will depend on where the damage was done. For example, termites can seriously weaken the floor joists or they can chew through the casing around your wiring which is unsafe. A thorough inspection can determine how safe your home is.
