Cary Termite Control
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.

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.

EcoTek offers free termite inspections. If you are termite free, you can rest easy. If you are not, EcoTek can offer treatment plans to help you deal with the infestations and prevent new ones from returning.
How will termites affect my property value?
Termites can cause your property’s value to decrease due to the damages that they cause. It can be expensive to complete the repairs, but once you do, you should see the value of your home return to normal. Many homes in the area deal with termites and continuing treatment and showing that you have completed the repairs make it possible for you to sell your home at current market rates.
