Pest Control Irvine, CA
Termite infestations are relatively common in Irvine, CA. Because termites typically remain hidden it can be difficult to know if you have termites, the extent of the infestation, and how much damage they are causing to your home. One way to overcome these problems is with a free inspection from Tanler Termite every one-to-three years.
Signs of a Termite Infestation
Even though termites eat the wood of your home for years without being detected. There are several warning signs that may indicate that you have termites. For example, termite swarmers inside your home or attic are often a clear sign that you have a mature colony of termites living in the wood of your home. Swarmers are termites that grow wings for the purpose of leaving the colony to start new colonies.
Another sign that you may have a termite infestation includes piles of termite pellets that are associated with Drywood Termites. Termite pellets are actually termite feces. They look similar to coarse grains of sand to the naked eye. Under a magnifying glass, you’ll be able to see that the pellets are oblong in shape with ridges on the sides.
Mud tubes are another indication that you may have a termite infestation. Subterranean Termites live underground and build mud tubes for protection as they search for ways to access the wood of your home. If you have a slab foundation, the mud tubes will often be found in cracks in the foundation or openings in the foundation created for plumbing. If you have a raised foundation home, the mud tubes will often be found in the subarea of the home or near an earth-filled porch.
When you call us for a free termite inspection or pest control Irvine, your termite inspector will search all accessible areas of your home looking for this evidence. This includes the accessible attics, foundation, and subareas of your home. The inspector will even probe the eves and other accessible wood on the exterior home looking for hollow pockets in the wood caused by termites and dry rot caused by fungus.
