How to Determine if You Have Termites
One of the main issues with termites is that they often cause thousands of dollars in damage before homeowners realize that there is a problem. There are a few sings you can watch for so that you can stop the infestation before it causes to much damage.
- Discarded Wings
After the termites move to a new colony, they will pull off their wings. If you see piles of discarded wings, you may have a new termite colony.
- Mud Tubes
If you see thing mud tubes on your foundation, you should break them open. You may see termites inside. The termites build these tubes to protect themselves as they crawl up into your home.
- Wood Damage
Termite damage will appear as long grooves in the wood.
It is important to be proactive when it comes to termites. Scheduling a termite inspection each year is just one way to do that. At EcoTek, we offer free termite inspections.

Effective Termite Treatments
At EcoTek we use Termidor SC, which is the top ranked liquid termite treatment on the market. It is applied directly to the top of your foundation and will work to kill the current colony and prevent future infestations. The termites will get the insecticide on them and carry it back to the colony where it will kill the queen and the rest of the colony.
