How to Determine if You Have Termites
The biggest issue with termites is that most homeowners do not realize there is a problem until serious damage has been done. There are signs that you can watch for to protect your home.
- Discarded Wings
Termites wills warm in the spring and then discard the wings once they set up their new colony. If you see piles of discarded wings, you likely have an issue with termites.
- Mud Tubes
Termites build pencil sized mud tubes up the sides of your foundation to create a safe path into your home.
- Wood Damage
Termites will cause damage in long narrow grooves under the surface of the wood.

Powerful Termite Treatments

Frequently Asked Questions
Can I be gone during an inspection?
You do need to be home during an initial termite inspection. The technician will need to examine areas of your home like your attic and crawlspace and you need to be home to be sure he can access all areas of your home.
How do the monitoring stations work?
The monitoring stations are chemical free. They are placed around your yard. The bait stations consist of materials that naturally attract termites already in your yard. They allow our technicians to quickly check for activity. If activity is found, we can begin treatment.
Is the treatment safe for my family?
The treatment is safe for your family. We use one of the safest products on the market. It is also applied to the exterior of your home, which gives you an added protection for your family.
How can I tell if I have termites or ants?
Ants look different from termites. The ants have smaller waists. They will leave sawdust piles around your house. Termites have wider bodies and wings that are the same size. They eat the wood, so you will not see sawdust piles.
