Common Signs of a Termite Infestation

Catching a termite infestation is crucial for limiting the damage these pests can do. This is why you should look out for any signs of an infestation. 

These include the following:

  • Buckling or blistering in wood flooring: This sign often resembles water damage. It is best to call for an inspection to determine the source of the issue. 
  • Termite swarmers: These winged termites emerge in large numbers on warmer, humid days. You may see them near windows and sources of light.  
  • Discolored or drooping drywall and peeling paint: These can also resemble water damage. Additionally, hollow-sounding wood may indicate internal termite damage.
  • Mud tubes: You will find these pencil-sized tunnels made of soil and termite saliva on your foundation, on walls, or in crawl spaces. Termites use them to travel to food sources. 
  • Frass (termite droppings): Frass resembles sawdust and is a byproduct of termite activity. You will likely find it near infested areas or other areas where termites are active.  
  • Discarded wings: After a termite swarm, you might find wings near the areas where the termites get inside. 

Sentricon® Termite Control 

We frequently utilize the advanced Sentricon® system for termite control. It works by way of strategically placed bait stations, which termites will feed on and share with others in the colony. According to Corteva Agriscience, the company that produces Sentricon®, termites prefer the system’s bait far more than wood

The active ingredient in the bait, noviflumuron, prevents termites from maturing, eventually leading to their death. Over time, the Sentricon® system completely wipes out termite populations, including the queen. 

We are proud to offer the Sentricon® system because we know it works and can protect homeowners in Newport News and the surrounding areas. If you have additional questions about Sentricon® and our termite control services, reach out.

Start with us by calling or getting in touch online. We can schedule same-day appointments in emergencies.

Why Get a Termite Inspection & How Often?

Termite inspections are essential for homeowners and prospective home buyers alike. If you are purchasing a home, your mortgage company may require you to get an inspection proving the property is free of termites and other insects and rodents. You likely also want to get an inspection so you know pests will not compromise your investment in a new home.

As for homeowners, routine inspections can help you get ahead of an infestation. Termites live in places you generally will not see, making it hard to tell they are present before the damage is already done. This is why you should consider scheduling inspections annually, especially in Newport News, where the climate is hot and wet. 

At Universal Pest & Termite, we offer convenient termite inspections that provide peace of mind. Our termite inspections also come with a moisture, plumbing, and insulation inspection. Our team will make certain you understand what you need to do to eliminate a termite population and control various risk factors.
