Wood Destroying Insects & Termite Inspections
Help prevent termite infestations with help from Anchor Home Inspections. We know that termites can cause major structural damage to your home. To prevent this, we inspect properties for termites and other wood-destroying insects.
Most of the time, these insects can only be seen inside a home when an infestation is already deep-rooted. However, termites can also be found outdoors, around rotting boards and dead tree stumps. The presence of droppings on your property is a sign that it may have an infestation. If you suspect that there may be termites in your property, contact us.
When you come to us for termite inspections, we will be extremely thorough. Our team of professionals will leave nothing uninspected. We can quickly identify termites by examining their wings and antennae. You can count on our inspectors to find anything that may be destroying your property.
What Ia A Termite Inspection?
A termite inspection is a visual inspection of the readily accessible areas of a home for evidence of wood-destroying insects (WDI) and wood-destroying organisms (WDO). The inspector will visually inspect the entire interior of a home including attics, basements and crawl spaces and exterior of the property.
How Do You Treat Termites?
There are several methods available to treat termites. A chemical treatment is the most typical treatment available for termites. The goal of a termite chemical treatment is to create a continuous termiticide barrier between the termite colony and wood in a building. This is achieved by placing termiticide in the soil on both sides of all foundation walls to provide a barrier stopping termites from entering the building.
What Can You Do To Prevent Termites?
\The current method of preventing termites on newly constructed homes is to have a pest control company spray a liquid termiticide over the entire foundation area prior to the concrete being poured. Common situations that are provoke termites are: earth to wood contact at support posts; cellulose debris and form boards left in the crawlspace; improper drainage away from the home; and inadequate ventilation in the crawlspace. Correction of these conditions by the homeowner will greatly reduce the likelihood of termites.
