Pest Control Advice When Buying a New Home

Pest Control Advice When Buying a New Home

It is important to take into account any problems you may experience that may not be visible to the naked eye. One such problem that can occur could be termite infestation.

 

Termites are known for their ability to chew through wood, flooring, and even wallpaper, and can cause more than $5 billion in property damage each year. Before buying a home, potential buyers should request a termite inspection by a licensed pest control professional.

 

A termite new home inspection focuses on the telltale signs of termite damage or infestations such as cracks, crevices, and moisture. Once completed, the pest control professional will issue a new home report and then recommend a course of action.

 

Here are signs that could validate a termite infestation:

  1. Mud tubes
  2. Soft wood in the home that sounds hollow when tapped
  3. Darkening or blistering of wood structures
  4. Small piles of feces that resemble sawdust near a termite nest
  5. Discarded wings near doors or on windowsills
