• Termite Inspections

  • Termite Inspections Are Critical!

    Termites and other Wood-Destroying Organisms may be small critters, but the damage they can do to a home’s structural integrity can be extensive! By getting an Orlando Termite inspection you’re ensuring that you minimize termite damage and other WDO damage, or maybe avoiding it entirely. Like so many other tourists, Orlando is a favorite hangout to several species of Termite and other Wood-Destroying Organisms. In Orlando, there are four primary species of Termite, the Eastern Subterranean termite, Powder post Dry-Wood Termite, Formosan Subterranean termite, and the Florida Damp-wood Termite.   The most common of these species is the Eastern Subterranean Termite, which can be found all over the Eastern and Midwest United States.

    An Orlando Termite Inspection will Identify Infestation

    Because they are so common, if you do have an infestation, you’re most likely to have an Eastern Subterranean Termite problem. This species is extremely destructive to many types of timber. Of note, Douglas Fir is a favorite meal of theirs. They will often eat the spring Wood, and forego eating the Summer wood of Douglas Fir, which is tougher. The Eastern Subterranean Termite is a serious economic threat in the Eastern US, causing millions of dollars in damage each year. In areas where the species has high activity, it’s estimated that they infest as many as 1 in 5 homes. If you are unsure of your areas activity, or if your home has fallen victim, it’s recommended that you get an Orlando Termite Inspection.

    An Orlando Termite Inspection will Confirm or Refute Infestation

    If you suspect that you’re in a high activity Termite area, or you’ve noticed some damage to your home you suspect could be termite related, an Orlando Termite inspection will clear the air and get you the answers you need. Even if you’re certain you have termites, it’s advised to have an inspection done to see how large the infestation is, or if they’ve spread to other areas of the home. If you’re certain you’ve found a termite infestation, (don’t bother the termites = Bold.
