Termites can cause some serious damage to homes and properties and you may never even know they’re there! Termite damage in not covered by most homeowner’s insurance policies, and the financial damage can be quite severe. It’s a risk you don’t want to take. Did you know that termites were responsible for $5 billion worth of damage each year in the US alone?

Termites will enter a dwelling through cracks and gaps as narrow as 1/32”. Possible entry points include cracks in your foundation, gaps around your plumbing, expansion joints and service entries. It is extremely important to have your property inspected by a professional that can spot signs of activity as well as identify potential entry points. 

Because the signs of termite infestation are often elusive, it is important to have regular termite inspections conducted by a Philadelphia pest control specialist. This is the best way to ensure you home or property remains termite free.

A good Philadelphia exterminator will perform a thorough inspection to access how termites are getting in. They will check for signs of wood damage and termite shelter tubes. Shelter tubes are made from feces, plant matter and soil, which protect termites from ants and other predators. These often run from the ground, up the foundation of a dwelling. This is an obvious sign of intrusion only if you know what to look for.

If an inspection reveals termites, it’s time for your Philadelphia pest control specialist to take action. The first step is to get rid of the termites that are present followed by preventive action to keep them from returning. At Enterprise Exterminating, we are a Termidor certified professional.
