Durham Termite Control
Durham North Carolina sites just north of capital city Raleigh, and is part of the three city Research Triangle Park that consists of Raleigh, Durham, and Chapel Hill. The Research Triangle gets it’s name from being an educational hub of three major universities which are Duke University in Durham, NC State University in Raleigh, and the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill. Durham is quickly becoming one of the best areas to purchase a home because of the nightlife and restaurants in the downtown Durham area.
The vast majority of Durham consists of homes that have stood the test of time from an era when most homes were made mostly from wood, and when you take into account all the oaks, holly’s and maple trees throughout the city, it’s a recipe for a termite buffet. A large majority of the termite extermination projects that EcoTek works on are in Durham, and it’s not just houses, but also companies that experience termite infestations. If you live in Durham, you can quickly and easily find out if your home or business has termites by simply calling EcoTek for a free termite inspection that will also offer you a free estimate should it be found that you have termites.

How to Determine if You Have Termites
Quite a few homeowners just suppose they don’t really have a termite problem until they locate a colony of termites under their home, within a closet, or they see termite mud tubes like the picture below. By the time it’s determined there are termites in the house it’s far too late, and the termite infestation has already done thousands of dollars in structural harm 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.
Waiting until you think that you’ve got termites is not recommended, especially when you consider you can get a free of charge termite inspection done right away that offers you a free estimation of costs, and if it’s determined you don’t have termites, then you can have peace of mind that your house is safe. The free estimate we provide will not only cover the cost of exterminating the termites and the damage cleanup, but it will summarize any costs you will need to know for reconstruction repairs.
