How to Determine if You Have Termites
Unfortunately, termites often cause extensive damage before a homeowner realizes there is a problem. Termites will do their damage in areas of the home that you do not see, but there are signs that you may notice around your property
- Discarded Wings
After termites swarm to start a new colony or build a new nest, they will pull off their wings, and leave them in a pile.
- Mud Tubes
Termites will build mud tubes up the side of your foundation to give them protection as they go into your home. These tubes are about the size of a pencil.
- Wood Damage
Wood damage is another sign—you may first notice this as squeaky floors or damage in long grooves.
It is important to act as soon as you think you may termites on your property. The longer you wait to schedule a termite inspection, the more damage the termites may do to your property. A termite colony can eat up to a pound of wood a day or through an entire home in just two years. The more damage they do, the costlier the repairs. Schedule a free inspection today. If you have termites, our technician will present you with a written estimate and treatment plan along with a list of repairs that need to be completed. EcoTek’s turnkey solution will treat for termite, complete the cleanup and repairs and continue to monitor for any possible activity in the future.
Effective Termite Treatments
EcoTek’s termite treatment is Termidor SC, which is one of the best termite treatments in the business. The liquid termiticide will be applied to the top of the foundation and any termites that try to reach your house will pass through it and take the insecticide back to the colony where it will kill the queen and the rest of the colony.
Chemical Free Monitoring Systems
EcoTek offers chemical free monitoring stations that allow the technicians to tell if there is termite activity on your property. The monitoring stations have a core made of wood, cardboard and cellulose which naturally attract termites, but will not affect any other animals that live on your property. The technician will check it quarterly and can begin treatments if there are signs of termite activity.
