Signs of Termites

If you see any termites on your property, it’s time for an inspection. Termites can also leave behind evidence like mud tubes or wings, and if you see these, it means they’re already present in your home. If you’re not sure but suspicious, Turin Pest Control would be glad to come out and inspect your property as a precautionary measure.

Buying or Selling a Home

If you’re planning to buy or sell a home, you should always have a termite inspection done first. This will give you peace of mind knowing that the house is free of termites and reduce the chances of extra costs later down the road. Scheduling an inspection before selling your home enables you to be fully transparent with the buyer, providing them with a detailed understanding of the purchase.

Recent Renovations

Getting a termite inspection is a good idea if you’ve recently renovated your home. This is because construction activities can disturb the baiting system or any previously applied liquid barriers that keep termites away from the structure, making it more vulnerable to an infestation. Renovations may also void your termite warranty, so it is ALWAYS important to contact your pest control provider to alert them to changes in your home’s structure. 

Living in a High-Risk Area

If you live in an area prone to termites, like Georgia, the proactive approach would be having regular inspections as the seasons change or after significant weather changes. Termite damage is so common in homes around our area that the United States government created a Termite Infestation Probability zones (TIP) map. With the humidity and warmer temperatures in the South East, our homes need extra care to avoid substantial damage to your home.

Termites are some of the most destructive pests to your home and also the hardest to detect. The TPC termite control plan starts with a thorough inspection to detect if there is an active infestation. Depending on our findings, we will present the best treatment plan. This plan includes an annual inside and outside inspection to stay ahead of future termite issues.
