How to Determine if You Have Termites
Termites cause damage to your home, often without you noticing that you have an infestation. Since termites spend their time inside of your walls, it can be difficult to find them. Here are three signs of termites.
- Mud Tubes: These narrow tubes are about the width of ta pencil. Termites build them to have shelter as they crawl up your foundation into your home. If you break them open you can see termites in them.
- Discarded Wings: Termites have wings when they swarm to a new home. They will pull them off when they start building a new colony. If you find piles of discarded wings around your property, you likely have termites.
- Wood Damage: You may find wood that is damaged in long grooves. It can be weak or sound hollow when you knock on it.
If you think you have termites, you should act quickly. Termites can eat through an entire home in just two years. The sooner you call, the sooner you can stop the damage that they are doing to your home. Contact EcoTek for a free inspection. Each inspection will include a report of any termite activity and if termites are found it will include a written estimate for a treatment plan.
Powerful Termite Treatments
At EcoTek, we user Termidor SC, which is a very effective termiticide. This liquid treatment will be applied along the top of your foundation to stop termites from coming into your home. The treatment works because the termites will pass through it and carry it back into the colony where it will kill the queen and eliminate the entire colony. It also works to prevent future infestations.
