What’s Included in a Termite Inspection?

If you are purchasing a new home, you likely have considered getting a termite inspection to make sure that you are making a wise investment. Perhaps you already own a home but you are concerned about unexplained damages that are starting to appear. No matter what your reasons are, getting a termite inspection for your home is a wise decision. If you have a termite inspection annually, you can preemptively spot a termite infestation and deal with it before they can cause too much damage.

During a termite inspection, your pest control technician will search around your home for the presence of termites. While you may think that potential damages that termites may have caused are the only sign of their presence, there are many tale-tell signs that they have made their way inside of your structure. Some of these potential signs include:

  • Termite Tubes – Because Oklahoma has high populations of subterranean termites, one of the most common signs of their presence is termite tubes. These dirt tunnels will often be found along construction joints that lead from the soil to the foundation of your home.
  • Landscaping Issues – While it may not mean termites are already in your home, there are certain landscaping issues that can cause problems in the future. For instance, if you have woodpiles, excessive mulch or wood fencing that attaches to your home, there’s a good chance they will find them.
  • Wood Damage – If termites have established themselves inside of your home, there will likely be minor to extensive wood damage inside of your structure. Your termite inspector will utilize state-of-the-art technology and industry-standard techniques to check the wood around your home for the presence of termites.
