Finding out that you may have termites in your home can be a distressing experience, but the first step to getting rid of these pests is to get white ant inspections. Start by getting a referral- talk to at least two different companies so you can compare information and rates and talk to their references before making a final decision. Be sure that whoever you choose is willing to work around your schedule and will be able to contact you during times when you are available to answer questions for them.
Keeping up good communication is an important factor- the more information you provide, the more complete the white ant inspections will be and the better the termite removal process will turn out. Your contractor should also provide good communication and provide information about the different services they can provide and the costs and benefits of each one. Before you begin work, it is imperative that you have the details written down in contract form. This protects both the customer and the contractor and makes sure that all agreed upon work will get finished on time and in full. The paperwork should include the contractors license and bonding information to assure you that you are dealing with a reputable organization that will provide satisfactory work.
Now that you have an idea of how your white ant inspections should be handled, you may be wondering what that inspection should entail. A termite inspection begins with determining where pests are gaining access into your home, and what damage they might have already done. The results of the inspection should tell you whether you have a problem and if you do, what work is needed to address the pests and rid them from your home. For those lucky enough to have no termite issues in their home, a report will give details of how to keep pests out of your home.
On the other hand, if termites have been found in your home as the result of white ant inspections, there are different options that can be used to keep the pests from doing further damage. The most popular and usually most effective method is using a chemical barrier, known as a termiticide, to kill or repel termites before they enter the home. Another method is to use a bait monitoring system which involves placing specific types of bait placed in strategic areas of the home to verify if termites are continuing to gain entry into the home.
The purchase of a new home is an important one, and termites pose a threat to more than just the wooden surfaces of the home. Termites can build huge underground colonies that stretch for large distances, and colony members will travel to find new sources of food, so even if you don’t see a termite colony, there may be one close enough to cause problems. You may be surprised to find out that termites also chew through materials as diverse as paper, fabric, furniture and even shoes, so it is important to protect your entire home from these dangerous pests. The best way to keep your home safe is to invest in regular white an inspections and to follow the recommendations given by the professionals who conduct them. Don’t let termites take a bite out of your home investment!
