Termites can quickly destroy your home by eating through the wood beams in your foundation, your ceilings, floors and even your wooden furniture. To stop the damage to your home, you should immediately call an experienced company that provides Termite Inspection in Tulsa OK. After the inspection of your home, the inspector will recommend a treatment plan to get rid of the termites in your house. Below are some common questions about termite inspections.

Q.) In what areas of my home will the inspector look for signs of termites?

A.) The termite inspector will thoroughly inspect your home and look for the presence of termites in your crawl space or basement and attic. The inspector will also look outside around the perimeter of your foundation.

Q.) What signs will alert the inspector that there are termites in my home?

A.) In and around your home, the inspector will look for cylindrical shaped mud tubes, termite droppings that look like sawdust and the presence of termites. Termites often build mud tubes on the outside of the house foundation. This serves as a passageway from the outside to the inside of your home. If termites have invaded the inside walls of your home or your furniture, the inspector may see termite droppings, called frass, in piles on your floors. Termites have wings, so it’s possible that the inspector may even see these tiny insects flying around inside your home.

Q.) How can I keep from getting termites in my home?

A.) In addition to a regular Termite Inspection in Tulsa OK and the recommended treatment, you can help to prevent additional termite infestations. Don’t place any type of wood, such as firewood, close to your foundation. Termites often attack old wood and tree stumps, so you don’t want these items anywhere near your house. If you have an old tree or stump in your yard, get rid of it as soon as possible. Refrain from placing mulch close to your house as it’s not uncommon for termites to invade a pile of mulch.
