What Are the Signs of a Termite Infestation in a Home or Building?

While termites are often discovered inside the walls of a home, they leave behind numerous signs that can help you detect them and seek treatment. To mitigate the damage that’s done to your home, call Corky’s Pest Control immediately to request our termite control services. The warning signs of a termite infestation include the following:

  • Small holes in your drywall
  • The wood around your home sounds hollow when you tap it
  • Your paint is peeling
  • Squeaky floorboards
  • Loose tiles
  • Buckling floorboards
  • Discolored drywall
  • Damaged wood
  • Termite pellets
  • Mud tubes around your home’s exterior
  • Piles of wings

How Can Homeowners Proactively Prevent Termite Infestations?

The most effective way to prevent termite infestations is to request professional San Diego termite control services. We can help you determine what steps you should take to keep termites away. You can also reduce the likelihood of an infestation by stacking firewood around 20-30 feet away from the interior of your home.

If your yard has a wooden fence, look for infested or rotted materials. When you contact our team of termite control professionals, we’ll apply treatment to make sure these pests stay away. You can also prevent infestations by:

  • Keeping moisture away from your foundation
  • Reducing the number of plants near your home
  • Sealing gaps
  • Removing food sources like tree stumps and newspapers
  • Patching any holes in your window screens
  • Obtaining termite inspections at least once every year

How Long Does It Typically Take to Eliminate a Termite Infestation?

The amount of time it takes to eliminate a termite infestation around your home depends on the treatment that’s used. If we place bait stations around your home, your termite problem can be eliminated in anywhere from several weeks to a few months. In comparison, fumigation exterminates colonies in a matter of days. As for chemical termite treatments, they can take a few days to work as well.

Which Pest Control Is Best for Termites?

The best pest control service for termites typically involves a combination of methods to ensure effective eradication and prevention. For example, soil and barrier treatments effectively eliminate termites and provide a long-lasting barrier that prevents future infestations.

Termite baiting stations allow you to get rid of termites in an Eco-friendly manner. Tented fumigation is highly effective and efficient. However, it’s more expensive than the other solutions.

For best results, contact the experts here at Corky’s Pest Control, we will assess your specific situation and recommend a tailored solution. Our comprehensive termite control services include the latest and most efficient methods.

Is Fumigation the Only Way to Get Rid of Termites?

While fumigation is a very effective form of termite extermination, there are other types of solutions such as chemical solutions used around and installing bait stations. When you schedule termite control for your San Diego home, we’ll inspect the infestation to determine which solution we should use.

What Is the Cost of Termite Treatment in San Diego?

All termite pest control services begin with an inspection. If you schedule your inspection with Corky’s Pest Control, we’ll provide this service for free. You’ll then receive a quote that informs you of the price for termite treatment.

What Factors Contribute to the Cost of Termite Treatment?

Numerous factors contribute to the cost of termite treatment, which include everything from the type of termite to the size of your property. However, the main factor is the severity of the infestation.

If termites have been in and around your home for a long time, they may be embedded into the property, which means that it will take longer to eradicate them. The type of treatment that’s used will also impact the cost. Fumigation is always more expensive than placing bait stations around your home.

What Time of Year Is Best to Treat Termites?

Termites feed all year round. However, termite treatment is usually most effective during the cold winter months. At this time of the year, termite activity is somewhat predictable, which may allow for more effective treatment.

How Long Is Termite Season in Southern California?

The termite season in Southern California usually ranges from June to November. While termites can be active at all times of the year, they usually swarm when the weather is hot and moist. Desert Drywood termites are often present from June to September. Western drywood termites swarm from September to November.

How Often Should Termite Inspections Be Conducted for Optimal Prevention?

If you live in Southern California, termite inspections should be conducted at least once a year. Annual inspections help detect early signs of termite activity and allow for timely intervention before significant damage occurs. In areas with a high risk of termite infestations, we may recommend an inspection more often, such as every six months.

Do Termites Go Away Permanently After Treatment?

The effectiveness of termite control methods depends on the one you use. If you use pressure-treated wood in your home, you may be able to keep termites away for a long time. Termites are less likely to eat wood that has already been treated with various chemicals. Keep in mind, however, that using pressure-treated wood isn’t a permanent solution.

If you place bait stations around your property, they offer long-lasting protection. These stations contain a termiticide treatment that doesn’t become active immediately. Termites are automatically attracted to these stations. They’ll take the termiticide back to their nests to share with other termites in the colony.

While these treatments can take a long time to work, they can keep termites away from your home for years. If you ask us to place bait stations around your property, we’ll monitor them to ensure they remain effective.

As for liquid-soil treatments, they can provide your home with a barrier that lasts for around five years. Before applying the liquid treatment, we’ll dig a trench around your home. Once the trench is filled, termites will travel through the tunnels and take the chemicals back to their nests.

Is Termite Protection Worth It in San Diego?

Termite protection is highly recommended for San Diego residents. You live in a somewhat hot and humid climate, which is the perfect environment for termite infestations to flourish. By obtaining termite protection with our pest control services, you can have peace of mind that your home is free of these pests.
