There are several factors that might indicate it’s time for a termite inspection and possible fumigation. You might want to have an inspection to ensure your peace of mind if:
Because it is nearly impossible to locate all of the drywood termites in a structure, contact a professional termite inspector to accurately identify if you have a drywood termite infestation in your home. Should you find you have termites, do not treat the problem lightly, as you not only risk damage to your own home but to any nearby structures – the termites could leave your house to establish colonies elsewhere. Whole-structure fumigation with Vikane® gas fumigant rids your home of 100% of the termites – the first time.
Remember, too, that if you are selling or buying a house, termite inspections or documented treatment for termites may be a legal requirement for the completion of the sale.
