What to do if you spot a termite in your home

You definitely do not want termites in your Dover, Middletown, or Milford home. They are not just pests, they can be a health risk as well. Because all termites eat wood, they can significantly damage the structure of your home. This results in hundreds or even thousands of dollars of damage. Or, at the worst, it could cause your structures to collapse.

Termites are never a good pest to have around. Keep a vigilant eye out for their signs. If you think you have termites call a pest control specialist, like JEM Pest Solutions immediately.

Signs of termites

The best way to deal with termites is to prevent them or at least stop them early. You can do the latter by looking for their signs. Termites signs are not hard to spot, here are a few of the most common ways to tell you to have an infestation.

  1. You see a termite. This one is unlikely, although it can happen. Termites typically use mud tunnels to move from their nest to their feeding site. This protects them from predators, including you. However, if you see a small, ant-like, pale pest near wood, it is likely a termite.
  2. Seeing the mud tunnels is a great way to tell you have a termite problem. Mud tunnels are made by some termite species. They are long thin tunnels made from dirt and mud that protect termites as they go to and from their nest. You will most often see mud tunnels on baseboards and support beams.
  3. If you see wood shavings around your basement or near baseboards, you may have a termite problem. Carpenter ants and carpenter bees also produce wood shavings. But, you don’t want those pests either. So, no matter what, if you see wood shavings that you didn’t cause, call a pest control specialist right away.

What to do if you spot a termite

As we mentioned in the beginning, the best way to solve a termite problem is to prevent it. Termites work very fast, so keeping them out of your home or other buildings is essential. Here are a few ways to prevent termites from entering your Dover, Middletown, and Milford home.

  1. Don’t put any wood near or against your home. Termites live in wood, but they will happily move into your house if you make it easy for them. Wood piles leaning against a building is like asking the termites to move in.
  2. Keep your leaks fixed. This is a good upkeep rule for your home anyway. However, termites are attracted to water sources. If you have a leaky pipe or basement, they will definitely be interested in your home. Prevent them by keeping everything snug and dry.
  3. Contact JEM Pest Solutions. Even if you just suspect a termite outbreak, you need to call a professional pest exterminator. JEM Pest Solutions is the company to call in the Dover, Middletown, and Milford areas. We know that termites are a serious situation. That is why we guarantee service within four hours if you call before 2 p.m. Let our technicians make your home termite-free for good. Contact JEM Pest Solutions today.
