We Exterminate Termites Professionally
When termites get into your home, they can cause significant amounts of damage. They’re known as the silent invaders because when they attack your home, they can go unnoticed until the damage is apparent. Termites are wood destroying insects that cause havoc to your home’s structure. They find their way into your property through small gaps and cracks, and once they get to work, they can cost you thousands in repairs.
Here at Bob Jenkins Pest & Lawn Services, we’ve had years of experience when it comes to exterminating termites from homes in San Antonio and surrounding areas. We understand that a home is a significant investment and the last thing any homeowner wants is for pesky little insects to destroy their property. If you’re worried about termite infestations, get in touch with us for professional advice.
When one of our expert exterminators comes to your home, they’ll thoroughly inspect your property for any signs of termite life. To ensure that we do not miss any signs of their presence, our termite inspection can take up to two hours. We never cut corners when inspecting a customer’s home; we won’t leave the property unless we’re 100% sure of the termite situation.
Our clients can schedule annual termite inspections for their homes to ensure that their properties are termite free. If we do find signs of these insects in the home, we’ll talk to the homeowner about the different treatments we can offer to exterminate the current termites and prevent any future ones.
Signs You Have Termites in Your Home
If you have termites, they can often go unnoticed for extended periods of time. You can catch termites early and before they’ve caused notable amounts of damage, but you need to know what you’re looking for first.
As professionals, know what to look out for, but most homeowners would not be able to identify signs of termite life. When Bob Jenkins Pest & Lawn Services inspect your home, we look for the following signs:
Foundation Damage – If there are any gaps or cracks in the foundations of your property, termites can find a way through and gain access to your home. If your home has a crawl space, it puts it at a higher risk of getting a termite invasion.
Interior Damage – Floors, walls, and ceilings can all show signs of a termite problem, such as having cracks. We can tell if floors have been affected by termites, as they will have a spongy feel.
Exterior Damage – We inspect any form of wood in your yards such as fence posts and decking, as these are often targeted by termites. We also look for damage to trees around your property.
Hollow Wood – When termites eat through the wood in your home, they gnaw from the inside out. A piece of wood may look like it’s in perfect condition, but if we knock on it like we would a front door, we can tell if termites have attacked from the hollow wood sound it makes.
Frass – Termite droppings, known as frass, are a telltale sign that you have termites in your home. It’s easy to identify; we look for small piles of pellets that look like a mixture of sand and instant coffee granules.
