New Bern Termite and Pest Control Companies

As you can see from the map below termites are found in New Bern NC as well as most of the southern states. Is this something to be concerned about? Well, it is certainly something to be aware about. It is important to have your home inspected by a licensed professional pest control agent on an annual basis. Termites work rather slowly and will not do any significant damage in less than a years time. If you will do this you will not likely have any damage from termites.

When you are looking to buy a house it is a good idea to see if the house is currently under a termite bond, and if so is the contract transferable. If it is, great. If not, it could be expensive, $1000-$2000, to do the necessary treatments required to put it under bond. Your real estate agent, hopefully me, should be able to help you with this.

Termite damage in a home in New bern

The biggest problem with termites is that the damage that cause is usually hidden until it gets totally out of control. Termites can work an area over for years and you might never know they are there.

Termites often work in wall cavities that are hidden by drywall and exterior siding. They totally destroy the structure of the wood from the inside. Sometime you cannot even tell the wood has been damaged until you touch it and it literally crumbles in your hand.

Termites swarming.

You often see winged termites swarming in the warm months as some of the colony members will fly off to start another colony.

Once they reach their destination they then drop to the ground, shed their wings, pair off with a mate, and attempt to begin new colonies in the soil. Few swarmers emerging outdoors survive to start new colonies. Swarmers emerging indoors are incapable of eating wood, seldom survive, and are best removed with a vacuum. They do, however, indicate that an infestation is present.
