How to Determine if You Have Termites
One of the frustrating things about termites is that many people do not realize that they have termites until the damage has already been done. Termites work inside of your walls where they are hard to detect. However, there are some signs of a termite infestation including:
- Discarded Wings
Termites will shed their wings when they move to a new place to establish a new colony.
- Mud Tubes
Termites will build pencil sized tubes along your foundation. If you open them up, you will find termites.
- Wood Damage
Termite damage can be seen in long narrow grooves in the wood.
You should not wait until you find termites in your home to take action. You should get a termite inspection annually. EcoTek offers free termite inspections.

Frequently Asked Questions
Are the treatments safe?
We use Termidor SC, which is one of the safest termite treatments on the market. The treatment is applied directly to the foundation and it will not be used inside of your home. Your family will be safe during and after the treatment.
Do termites cause significant damage in a short period of time?
Termites can eat about a pound of wood a day. Overtime this can add up. Termites can eat through an entire home in just two years. Many homes will have more than one colony in it, which means the damage will happen more quickly.
How do the monitoring stations work?
The stations are made out of a core that contains wood, cardboard and cellulose. These naturally attract termites that are already on your property. It allows our technicians to quickly check for activity so that treatment can begin before they reach your home.
How long should I plan for a termite inspection?
The amount of time that an inspection takes is dependent on the size of your home. Most inspections will take between 30 to 60 minutes. After the inspection, you will receive a report about the condition of your home. If termites are found, you will receive a written estimate, and a treatment plan as well as a list of repairs that need to be done.
Can I be gone during an inspection?
