Grant Exterminating Offers Affordable Termite Inspection, Treatment & Prevention Programs Designed to Protect Your Property
The key to termite prevention is to have a Termite Protection Treatment and a regular pest inspection performed by Grant Exterminating. Our professional exterminators know the most common locations where termites attack and cause damage to your home. This allows them to quickly determine if termites are already infesting your home. Termites can cause significant damage to a property in a short period of time, so it’s important to have an annual pest inspection performed every year.
Do You Have a Termite Infestation? Know the Warning Signs!
Termites are frequently called the ‘silent hidden invaders,’ and for good reason. They can be extremely difficult to detect without professional training. Here are a few signs you may be dealing with an infestation of termites:
- Knock On Wood: Severely damaged wood that has been snacked on by termites will sound hollow when you tap or knock on it. If you suspect that your wood has been damaged by termites, use a small screwdriver or knife to probe the surface of the wood and determine if the inside has been eaten.
- Wings on Window Sills: Swarming termites have wings and “swarm” at certain times of the year to start new colonies. They are commonly attracted to the light, and head straight for the window. If they are unable to escape, they may die and leave their wings behind on the window sill. Keep your eye out for this telltale sign.
- Mud Tubes and Tunnels: Termite colonies will create what are called ‘mud tubes.’ These mud tubes act as protective tunnels that allow the termites to travel around your property safely, and are often located over concrete, around window frames, under porches and inside walls.
