What Happens During a Termite Inspection?
During a termite inspection, the pest control specialist will come out and survey all of the visible areas of the home for signs of destruction caused by termites. They will look at the crawlspace, basement, interior, and exterior of the home to determine if any signs are present that should alert the homeowner there are termite problems.
The average termite inspection is going to take around thirty to forty-five minutes, depending on the size of the home being inspected. While a termite inspection can reveal termites, it is not a fool-proof method, because the inspector has no way to see within the walls or flooring where termites often create their nests and hide.
How Are Termites Treated?
If an inspection shows there is a termite problem, prompt intervention by the Pest Control company is a must. The sooner intervention is sought, the sooner these pests can be removed from the home, and any damage will be minimized.
There are different methods of treating for termites, depending on the type and the size of the home. The traditional way of getting rid of these insect pests is through tenting. Tenting is simply rodent control that completely enshrouds the home.
Once the home is carefully sealed and all of the occupants are removed, including pets, the pesticides will be pumped inside the home. The gases have the ability to penetrate the walls through nooks and crannies so the termites are destroyed, including the larvae and eggs.
In addition to termite removal, many homeowners also end up needing fungus treatments, especially if they have a moisture problem in their home. With prompt treatments, homeowners can be sure the threat is removed so they will not have to deal with the further destruction of their home.
