How to Know if You Have Termite Infestation Must Be Taken Care Of!
Did you see something fly by? Are you seeing small wood-like small pellets in a small bundle? Well you might have termites especially if you haven’t had your property tent fumigated for quite some time. Here are some important things to understand before contacting a professional termite inspector.
Where they normally hide in your Lake Forest Home
Here is the thing, the weather in Orange County is quite hot and dry for termites. Termites do not like to come out “until” there is a shift in weather from hot to cold/damp. If it just rained, and you are in termite swarming season, and the sun is breaking through, you may see swarms of termites flying. They are looking to enter into dark areas like your attics and your walls.
Why Do I see Swarms of What Looks Like Termites?
If its the right temperature, Optimum temperatures for termites range from 75°F to 95°F (24°C to 35°C). At temperatures above 100°F or below 25°F, termites may die in a matter of minutes. If the temperature is right, termites will go into flight to find new places to create colonies. (It’s all about breeding)
Why don’t I see Termite Damage? I hear they destroy billions of dollars of homes per year?
Here is the issue, they eat inside the walls, inside your attics, as well as your outside trimming but “under” the paint. So, if you want, you can poke around where termites normally live. If you make a dent into the wood, you have termites.
What does a Termite Inspector do to determine if I have termite infestation in my Lake Forest home?
A professional licensed termite inspector will walk around the perimeter of your home while using a poking stick to see if they can make a dent in the fascia boards. Once completed, they will have to enter the home and enter the attic area and again poke around and look for wood pellet droppings.
Can Termites enter into my furniture?
The simple answer is Yes. Make a solution of borax powder and water and spray it on the affected areas. Our recommendation is to call one of our professional and licensed termite inspectors (1-888-838-3764) and with a Free inspection, they will complete an inspection.
