Quality Termite Inspections
We will visit your home or apartment building to locate the termite infestation. Our state licensed inspector will look for droppings, small “kick-out” holes in the wood and will also look for mud tubes in your sub-area, which also indicate that there might be a subterranean termite infestation. Afterwards, Elite Bay Area Termite will prepare a report complete with our findings and recommendations for treatment.
How Do I Know I Have Termites?
Only a licensed termite inspection specialist can determine the extent of your termite infestation. However, you can detect the presence of termites quite easily. Look around your home for these tell tale signs of termite activity:
- “Kick-Out” Holes – As termites tunnel through wood, they use “kick out” holes to discard fecal pellets and frass.
- Mud Tubes – Subterranean termites build shelter tubes to gain access to your home.
- Pellets – As termites tunnel through wood, they “kick out” fecal pellets into small mounds.
- “Swarmers” – Winged reproductive termites appear after periods of heavy rain or in late summer & early fall.
- Wood Damage – All termites tunnel through wood, weakening the structure of your home.
Signs of Termite Activity
If you see any of these tell-tale signs of termite activity in your home or office, contact Elite Bay Area Termite Control for a full inspection: 1.888.611.TERMITE.
Kick-Out Holes: Termites bore through wood, leaving holes to “kick-out” waste material.
Mud Tubes: Subterranean termites live in the soil and build tubes through the base of the structure to infest the wood members.
Pellets: As termites eat their way through your structure, they discard their waste via kick-out holes. These pellets can be found in small piles below infested areas.
Swarmers: Reproductive termites leave the nest and fly to new locations to spread the infestation.
