How Often Should You Inspect for Termites?


Termites are a common problem. That’s why Green Pest Solutions provides a great deal of termite control. In our service areas, which include cities around Pennsylvania, Delaware, and New Jersey, termites are a common problem that creates hundreds of millions of dollars in damage. These states are also very much at risk because of the age of the homes, the moist climate, and the number of termite colonies already in the area.

Before we can treat your home for termites, however, we have to know you have a termite problem, and the only way we can know is if you inspect your home for termites and give us a call. The following is some basic information to help you understand how often you should inspect for termites and what to do if you find any.

Inspecting Your Home for Termites

It’s always a good idea to call a professional exterminator. We can examine your home for all signs of termites and provide you with more extensive feedback based on our experience.

Inspecting your home for termites doesn’t have to be a weekly thing.

  • For older homes, it’s recommended that you get a professional inspection once a year. That is because older homes are more at risk for termites. The older the home, the more it is crucial that you have a professional inspect your property.
  • For newer homes, once a year is still ideal, but you can likely afford to inspect your home once every two years. Consider a professional inspection any time you see any signs of termites in or around your home.
  • For self-inspections, it’s best to inspect twice a year. That’s because a lot of the subtle clues about termites can be easy to miss, so checking a bit more often as a non-professional will help you uncover termite problems.

Termite inspections should always be thorough, whether you do them yourself or have a professional complete them. Termites, for as much damage as they do, can be easy to miss. It’s very important that you have a professional inspect your home, or make sure that you’re giving your home regular inspections and paying attention for any signs that termites may be present. If you want a professional inspection, call Green Pest Solutions today.
