Where does termite damage start when termite inspection or termite control not done on time?
Termite species damage different areas of a property. The most common variety of termite encountered in the Northwest are subterranean. These pests live underground, and many homeowners do not realize they have a problem until termites take flight during mating season.
Subterranean termites target damp wood. They work their way upwards and travel through walls. That means you may encounter damage to floors, walls, and ceilings. Termite damaged areas look similar to those damaged by water. This includes buckling and swollen ceilings and floors.
Drywood termites target dry wood. Look for a crackling veneer in antiques. This is how dry wood termites typically enter the home. They aren’t common in new homes, but if you do have an infestation, then any visible damage will likely occur in the finish or paint of your walls.
When should you get a termite inspection?
There are many reasons a termite pest control inspection can be useful. Some of these include:
- If you identify any signs of a termite infestation or have concerns regarding termites.
- Before you sell your home to make sure it won’t come up during the inspection.
- When buying a home to make sure you don’t move in with unwelcome guests.
