Termites are one of the most common pest problems in Lafayette and the surrounding areas including Indianapolis. Our pest control company has found that typically homeowners and business owners have a termite inspection done when they are buying or selling the property.

Beyond that termite inspections are not done on a regular basis in most cases. When routine termite inspections are not carried out on your property then often you do not realize that you have a termite infestation until extensive damage is done.

Termites eat 24 hours a day, 7 days a week which means that they can do extensive damage to the structure of your property in a matter of no time. In fact, the NPMA estimates that termites cause on average $5 billion in property damage each year.

There a key warning signs of a termite infestation that could help you get in front of an infestation before it gets worse. Signs of a termite infestation include:

  • Termite swarms
  • Mud tubes inside the interior
  • Mud tubes inside the exterior
  • Darkening of wood structures
  • Decaying wood
