How to Tell If You Have a Termite Problem

You definitely do not want a termite problem in your Rockland home. These tiny insects can create a huge amount of damage. Since they live on wood and other organic matter, termites can severely weaken the structure of your house. That can mean a very unsafe situation for you, as well as repairs that can cost thousands.

It is always a good idea to take steps to prevent a termite problem. However, if one occurs, you need to be able to spot it immediately. The faster you catch the termites, the faster a professional pest control company like Fox Pest Control can help you get rid of them.

How to Spot Termites

The best way to spot termite is to look for signs of them. The following are the top termite signs that any homeowner can identify.

  • You see termites.
    Seeing termites is never a good sign. If you see a termite in your Rockland home, you definitely have a termite problem. Termites are reclusive and hard to spot. They prefer protected ways of moving around your home. So, a termite in the open means that there is likely a large population living in your house.
  • You see mud tunnels.
    Mud tunnels are the preferred travel method for many termite species. These will look like long, thin tunnels of mud. Mud tunnels will appear on your baseboards, along the bottom of walls, or on other wooden surfaces or areas. The termites use these mud tunnels to get around as they move to and from their colony.
  • You see discarded wings.
    When termites are establish a new colony, they can fly. In Rockland, it is common to see swarms of flying termites in the spring. If a swarm enters your home, you should definitely contact pest control professionals. However, you may not see the swarm. Therefore, if your see discarded termite wings around your Rockland property, your home has likely become infected by a new termite colony.

How to Get Rid of Termites

If you see any of these signs of termites in your Rockland home, you need to act immediately. As mentioned, termites can cause a lot of damage to your home and structures in a short amount of time.

We had a wonderful experience with our technician. Weston was easy to talk to and explained everything well. Josh, who sold us the service, was very kind also. Not pushy at all. And very informative. Thank you. We look forward to working with you in the future.

My experience with Fox Pest Control has been the best experience I had with a pest control company. Technician, Harry, did a good job of going over the process thoroughly, ensure that I understood everything going on. I would recommend them to anyone looking for good, quality, fast, friendly, and affordable pest control services.
