Edwardsville Real Estate Termite Inspection

Do Homes For Sale In Edwardsville Have Termite Problems?
I have heard:
All Homes In Edwardsville Has, Had Or Will Have Termites...

Termites eat wood. In their natural state, they eat fallen logs and stumps off the forest floor. But on your property, they can eat away the equity you have built up in your home and property. Termites infest millions of homes nationwide, causing over $750 million in damage annually, according to the United States Department of Agriculture.

What should I know about a termite colony?

Subterranean termites are native to every state except Alaska. A colony may include up to several million individual termites, living as deep as 20 feet underground. They are dispersed throughout
the soil at feeding sites around your home. Feeding on cellulose-based material, termites find human dwellings offer the ideal combination of warmth, moisture and food.

How can a professional pest control firm help?

Only a trained professional understands the intricacies of how a termite colony behaves.

Using an advanced FMC termiticide, a skilled, professional applicator
can effectively protect your housing investment for years to come.

 

How termites make themselves at home in your home.

Edwardsville Termite

 

A. By building ingenious mud tubes, termites can cross many feet of concrete, brick, cinder block, treated wood, or metal termite shields, making it poosible to reach the upper floors of a structure.

B. Termites eat wood from the inside out, defying detection for years while doing extensive damage.
How do termites get in?

Because termites need moisture and have a low tolerance to moving air currents and light, they live underground, attacking a home from below.

A loose mortar joint, a minute space around a drain pipe, or a settlement crack in the basement is all they need to gain entry.

Aren't new homes and houses with concrete slabs virtually termite-proof?
The experience of homeowners nationwide shows that no home, new or old, is safe from termites. By building mud tubes, termites can cross concrete, brick, cinder block, metal termite shields, pre-treated wood, and non-repellent chemical barriers. Only a professionally-applied repellent termite treatment will prevent termite entry.

If I haven't seen swarming termites, or traces of damage, can my home still be in danger?

Unfortunately, yes. When a colony swarms, the winged termites may be in the air for just a few minutes and you may not see them.

Termites also eat wood from the inside out, making their activity detectable only by professional termite inspection.
