Termite and Pest Inspections

Protect Your Investment from Destructive Termites and Other Pests

A pest inspection is an inspection of the exterior of your home for signs of an infestation and conditions, paths and sources that could lead to an infestation. This will include a thorough inspection of all exterior walls and eaves of the home and a close examination of the foundation. The inspector will look for visible signs of droppings, broken wings, mud tubes, and damaged wood. 


There is no government department or scientific agency that monitors termite data but it is estimated that Americans spend $5 billion annual on termite damage and repairs. Included in that estimation, are homeowners who spend roughly $3,000 to repair termite damage.


The Following Things Can Be Done to Prevent Future Infestation:

  • Get Rid of Excess Moisture

    Repair leaky faucets and don’t let water gather near your foundation. Keep gutters clear and use downspouts to divert water away from the house. Make sure the grade on your yard diverts water away from the home.

  • Keep Landscaping Clean

    Don’t let wood debris, mulch, or firewood come into contact with your home’s exterior surfaces. That includes trimming trees and shrubbery so that they don’t touch wood surfaces on the house.

  • Repair Your Roof and Attic

    Broken roof tiles and attic entrances can expose wooden beams in the attic and provide easy access for termites.
