Your home is likely one of your largest investments and protecting it against termites is a top priority! So, what should you do if you have termites? We recommend following these four tips:
1. Take Note of the Termite Signs You’re Seeing
It’s not every day that you’re faced with signs of a termite infestation… at least we hope not! If you notice any of the following signs, write down what you’re seeing and where they are so you can tell your termite exterminator once he arrives.
- Damaged wallpaper
- Discarded wings
- Mud tunnels
- Peeling paint
- Stuck door and/or windows
- Termite droppings
- Termite swarms
2. Confirm Your Suspicions
Ask a termite professional to take a look at your home and inform him of the signs you’ve noticed. Termite professionals know exactly where to look and how to diagnose the signs of a termite infestation.
For example, the signs you’re seeing may be from a decade-old termite infestation that has since been treated. That’s great news! Or, if you’re not so lucky, the signs you’re seeing may be from an active infestation. Our team can be at your home quickly to determine activity or inactivity. Call us: 478-245-4072
3. Hire a Termite Exterminator
As long as termites are active, your home is compromised. Once your termite professional confirms your suspicions, we recommend discussing treatment options and preparing a plan of action. Termites must be dealt with immediately to stop the damage. Don’t hesitate to ask a National Exterminating termite professional any question you have about the process.
4. Keep a Termite-Free Zone
Whether your termite policy lapsed or you inherited this termite problem, it’s vital to keep a termite-free zone now and in the future. Our team has extensive knowledge and experience implementing termite treatments such as Sentricon and Termidor.
