The Severity of a Termite Infestation 

Termites are one of the most detrimental pests that can infest your home or business. While they don’t spread disease, bite, nor contaminate your food supply like other pests, they can jeopardize your building’s structural integrity as they eat away at the wood. 

They live in large groups and can quickly destroy furniture, flooring, and the wooden frames of your building. Despite how disruptive they can be, termites are not easy to detect. Many homeowners and business owners do not notice the presence of termites until it’s too late. 

Structural damage can cost hundreds, if not thousands, of dollars to repair, so don’t risk it! Call us for an inspection the moment you suspect that you have a termite problem.

Identifying Your Termite Problem 

The best way to avoid excessive termite damage is to know the signs of a termite infestation. If you notice any of the following issues, be sure to get in touch with our exterminators. 

  • Hollowed out or damaged wood
  • Discarded termite wings or droppings
  • Blisters in your wood flooring
  • Mud tubes

If you see any signs of termites, the problem could be bad already. As much as we hate breaking the news to clients that their home is in disrepair, it is a real possibility. Call us as soon as you see the signs of a termite infestation because the implications of such an infestation can be very dangerous.

If you’re not sure, give us a call, and we’ll be there to help you out as soon as we can.

Walking You Through Our Termite Inspection Process

A proper termite inspection from Mecaf Termite and Pest Control can determine the extent of your infestation very quickly. Many long beach homes are prone to termites. If you are not sure whether your home has a termite problem, if your home has had termite issues in the past, or if you’ve recently purchased your home and want to make sure – hiring us to help you with your termite needs will save you from many future headaches.

If we think it necessary, we will get you to sign a termite bond that ensures proper termite inspections from us every year, or however frequently our pros decide you need inspections.

When looking for termites, there is a lot to look out for, however, the process is very logical. Here’s a look at our inspection process:

  • Exterior Inspection: Termites come in from the outside so we need to inspect all the usual places termites enter. We will be able to tell whether your home’s ever had proper termite treatment before. There are certain things we look out for, like drilled holes in your concrete slab next to your foundation where termite chemical was injected by a previous professional.
  • Checking Your Siding: There is a little void between the exterior siding or brick and the interior drywall. That void must be filled with termite eradicating chemicals if your home is prone to termites.
  • Treating Your Soil: Termites like to hang out in soil. If you have gardens or other dirt wrapped around your home, we will make sure your soil has been adequately treated with termite chemicals. Gardens around your home tend to raise the dirt level above ground level which allows for easier termite access. Between the dirt and the walls of your home, we will create a termite chemical moat that protects your home from termite access. With the chemical moat, we create a sufficient termite barrier.
  • Checking Every Crevice, Surface, and Beam in Your Home: Termites tunnel up from the ground into homes. Common places they appear are in corners. This is because termites follow the wood structure and eat up through it. Luckily, we know exactly how to spot termite tunnels. If one is not careful in getting yearly termite inspections or has had poor inspections in the past, termites will get ahold of your home’s structural wood and slowly destroy it.
  • Checking Your Drywall and Finish Carpentry: If there are enough termites, they will make it from your beams to your drywall without much trouble. Checking your drywall and baseboards, etc., is a great way to spot termite tunnels. Termites splatter mud everywhere they go, making it easy for us to spot their tunnels. To complete a thorough inspection, we must take off your baseboards and check behind them to see if termites have descended upon them. Finish carpentry is usually made of softer woods that termites like.
  • Sheetrock Inspection: By simply knocking on your drywall and listening for dirt falling behind, we can tell if you have termites. Another simple method is one where we shine a flashlight at your drywall at a steep angle to look for disfigurements in the flat surface highlighted by the flashlight. This can indicate mud tubes. This method is most useful on walls with wallpaper.

Book a Termite Inspection

At the first sign of termite activity, get on the phone with Mecaf Termite & Pest Control’s experts. We will discuss the issues you’ve been facing and investigate your property to locate the termite issue and understand the extent of the damage at hand. 

The cost of termite removal and repair services will depend on the severity of the infestation, but our experts are happy to help you crunch these numbers, so you know what you’re dealing with right off the bat.

Reliable Termite Treatment 

With years of experience working in the industry, our specialists know how to treat termites and avoid them in the future. The most effective form of extermination is termite fumigation. 

The termite fumigation process involves enclosing your structure with a tent and releasing a special gas into your home or business. This gas will penetrate deep into your building’s structure and kill off termites. Once the fumigation is complete, your property will be aerated so that it will be safe for you to return. 

Termite Prevention and Follow-Up

Once you’ve invested in termite removal, you want to ensure that you don’t face a similar problem in the future. At Mecaf Termite & Pest Control, we believe in educating our clients and providing them with the knowledge and tools they need to protect their properties. 

A few days after the extermination, we will follow up with you, ensure you are satisfied with our services, and discuss how to prevent termites in the future.
