  • Is the termite infestation in my home active?
  • What kinds of products and materials will be used in your home
  • What signs to look for when termites begin invading your home
  • What other kinds of pests you need to be aware of

Is the Termite Infestation in My Home Active?

Homeowners should find out specifics about the location and current activity of the termite infestation. As you are going through the initial inspection of your home, it’s important to identify the areas that have been infested and damaged by termites and determine if the termites are active. If active termites are found during inspection, then a treatment is needed as soon as possible, before additional damage occurs. Depending on how extensive the damage was and the location of most of the damage, you may be in need of some home repairs. 

What Products and Materials Will You Be Using?

You should also ask for further information on the products and materials that will be applied in and around your home. It’s important for you to know exactly the products being used in order to ensure everything being used has been approved and to make sure the pest control company is using the most modern and effective products available that will help solve the termite problem.

Signs and Symptoms of Termite Infestation

If you see discarded wings or termite swarmers that look like ants with wings, it is recommended to get a free inspection to determine whether or not your home may be infested by termites. In fact, the University of Florida and FDACS recommend an annual termite inspection to make sure your home is not infested. You may also see mud tubes, moisture stains, paint bubbling, or coffee ground-like frass, which could all indicate a termite infestation. If you see these signs, you should call a professional pest and termite control company immediately.

What Other Pests Should I Watch Out for Around My Home?

Homeowners shouldn’t hesitate to question their pest control operators (PCOs) about other pests or related pest information. PCOs are well-trained, educated, and capable of discussing pests and pest-related public health and property threats. As you become increasingly aware of and worried about the recent influx of pest-related public health threats, you should feel free to contact National Pest Management Association or your local PCO to address any issues.
