How to Do A Termite Inspection
Your home should be inspected annually for signs of termite infestation. Completing a DIY home inspection can be overwhelming. However, by following some simple tips you can complete a successful termite inspection. Nonetheless, nothing beats the inspection performed by the professionals. You should hire the assistance of the specialist especially if there are wood materials in your house that touched the ground or if there are spaces in your house that seems inaccessible to you.

A Comprehensive Guide on Termite Inspection
Termites can strike fear into the hearts of homeowners due to the damages that they can cause. They can be found in different parts of the US excluding Alaska. However, it will be difficult to detect their presence especially if you lack the experience.

Things You Should Look For
Termite inspection requires a great deal of effort on your part and you should not be afraid to get dirty. We advice homeowners to purchase disposable gloves and coveralls when performing the task. You will also need flashlight for the dim spaces in your house. Having a screw driver will help you probe on the wood materials and find the area that is receiving damage from their infestation. Here are some of the things that you need to look for when doing an inspection.
- Brittle Drywall
- Shed Wings-Termites will shed their wing when they are developing.
- Damaged Wood- Tap on the wood with your screwdriver and you will notice how the sound will differ on hollowed parts.
- Mud Tubes- Subterranean types of termites must be in constant contact with the soil. To connect to the food source, they will construct a path known as mud tubes. This is a clear sign of infestation.

Areas That You Should Check
Some areas of our house will receive an increased level of moisture compared to the others. This means that some place in our house has a higher potential to attract the termites. Here are some of the places that you should check.
- Construction Joint-In case you did not discover any mud tubes in your property, this does not immediately mean that you are free from termites. Sometimes, you will discover soil or mud in the cracks or the construction joints. This can be a sign of termite activity. You may need a flashlight when analyzing the construction joint.
- Woods-You will have to look at the feature of your house and analyze which element can possibly harbor these pesky insects. It can be the wood fence that is placed adjacent of your house. Other possible food sources of the termite include wooden structures, deadwood, firewood, and wood mulch.
- Window Frames and SillIdentifying an active termite infestation will not be that simple since will start eating the interior part of the wood. The damage on the surface will not be that visible. You will only discover them at the advance stage of the infestation. You will find some excavated grooves that are parallel to each other. During this instance, the damage will no longer be repairable.
