How To Spot Termite Damage
When it comes to termites, sometimes you can’t see what damage they have done right away. You have to know what to look for to know if you have a termite problem.
There are eight key indicators that you have termites causing damage in your home:
- Blistered/sagging floors
- Cracks in the walls and ceilings.
- Foundation damage
- Sticking windows/doors
- Damaged decking or wooden fence posts
- Hollow-sounding wood
- Mud tubes on exterior walls
- Signs of swarm
Blistered or sagging floors is one of the number one indicators of termites in the house. Many people mistake it for water damage but it may actually be a sign that you need to call McCauley for a free inspection and estimate. Another sign of termites is cracked walls and ceilings. These pests burrow inside the walls and eat away at door frames, walls, flooring, etc. This can eventually cause foundation damage to your home. Those are two words you never want to hear when referring to your beloved home – foundation damage. Sticking windows and doors may be another sign of termites burrowing deep inside the cracks of them. Whenever termites eat away at the cellulose found in timber, the cracks it makes may cause your windows and doors to shift. This is why they stick and why you need to have someone out to inspect it as soon as possible.
Have you been outside, trying to enjoy time with your family this spring, and noticed your decking or wooden fence posts are damaged? It may look as though the wood has taken on a honeycomb-like structure, but there is nothing sweet about this. That means a nest of termites is chewing through your outdoor wood and will surely be making its way inside if they haven’t already. This wood and the wood inside of your house that the termites have nested in will most likely sound hollow. You can test this by knocking on them, gently, and listening to hear if it sounds structurally sound or as though it has been hollowed out.
Another major sign that you have a termite problem is mud tubes on the exterior walls. To protect themselves from high temperatures, termites create little mud tubes that look like straws to travel from one area to another in your home. These are very visible and if you notice them, you need to call McCauley right away.
The last and one of the most obvious signs of a termite infestation is when you can see tiny little wings in areas such as window sills and basement floors. Termites migrate to different areas of the house to reproduce and grow their colonies. Whenever they do this, they twist off their little wings and leave them in piles. They may look like small bugs at first, but take a closer look and you will notice the abundance of wings. You don’t need to wait until you have seen every sign to call for an inspection. It is better to be safe than sorry, so call McCauley today.
Termite Season in Arkansas
When it’s warm outside and you think it’s the perfect season to be relaxing and enjoying time with your family, termites are thinking the same thing. In Arkansas, the most prominent times for termites are the spring and summer months. You need to be on the lookout always, but especially during March, April, July, and August. And then again right around the holidays in November and December. Don’t let termites run your life, call your Bryant McCauley and we will stop termites in their tracks.
How McCauley Keeps Your Home Termite Free
If you’re in the process of building your home, you can get ahead of the game bycalling McCauley for a pretreatment. This service must be done after the building frame is up and the roof is on but before the insulation is installed. Treatment is provided to the wood frame of the structure so it must be completed before insulation is installed. This treatment is an odorless solution that terminates the food source for termites.
If you are already at risk of termites, you need an immediate solution. This is when we come out and use sentricon to treat your home. This is an EPA-registered solution that is safe for you and your family. It’s a bait that termites actually prefer over wood, so they ingest it and begin to die off immediately. Our registered, pest control specialists will come out monthly to check how much bait is left and replace it whenever it is needed. When it comes to pest control, we mean business.
