You want to ensure your home remains a place free of pests. It becomes even more important if you plan on selling your home in the near future. Here are the signs to watch out for that termites have invaded your house.
As you are doing remodeling, you may come across wooden structures throughout your home. By giving these pieces a little tap, you should be able to hear if they are sturdy or hollow. Since termites eat wood from the inside out, hollow wooden pieces may indicate termites are around. Unless you see termites for yourself, you will need to hire a professional to locate them for you.
You may not actually see the termite population with your own two eyes, but you might see what the pests leave behind. If termites have been in your house for a while, then they may leave behind wings and other body parts here and there. Capture a few of these parts to show an exterminator. This will allow a professional to determine if you have termites or some other bug.
The only way to be sure you are rid of termites is to have a professional spray your house. Call Nelon-Cole Termite & Pest Control at 704-487-4155 to find a professional pest control service that can make your home livable again.
