The kids are out for the summer, and the great weather has you in a good mood. Sometimes during this time, we become a little more inattentive. Unfortunately, termites become highly active in the spring and summer time, which is bad news for every homeowner. Now before you go off searching the Internet for DIY ways to get rid of these termites, know that it takes a trained eye and professional for a serious problem like termites.

1. Drop It

Termites aren’t as obvious as one might think. Of course, there is the indication of wood damage but to some, it may not be as clear. For example, a common indicator of termites is a termite dropping, which can be difficult to notice with untrained eyes. A professional will be able to identify these droppings before an average person and will be able to see more telling signs of the problem.

2. Ding Dong, Termites Here!

Termites love eating up wood in dark, moist areas.  Give the suspected area a tap, if the wood sounds hollow, then those termites might have already hit it. But what if you don’t know the first thing about these warning signs? A professional in termite control in Belville, NC will be able to quickly identify whether or not termites have infested your home.
