Home Termite Inspections

There are few pests that can cause as much financial and structural damage as termites. Here in Virginia Beach, Chesapeake, Newport News and surrounding cities termites can be a major problem for homeowners. Equally troubling, because much of their activity begins in hidden areas such as walls, floors and even your furniture. In many cases, their presence isn’t evident until after considerable damage has taken place.


Should You be concerned about Termites?

You can’t assume your home is termite-free just because you’ve never seen them – they only swarm once or twice a year, and you might miss it! We thoroughly inspect your home or business, looking for the telltale signs of termite infestation.

Why Have a Termite Inspection?

Termites have been around for thousands of years. They serve an important purpose by returning dead wood and debris back into the soil. Termites are also extremely beneficial in that they help to convert plant cellulose into substances that can be recycled into the ecosystem to support new growth.
While termites may be beneficial in many ways they can cross over into the human world and cause thousands of dollars in damage. Termites cannot tell the difference between a dead tree and a very nice house overlooking the Chesapeake Bay.
This is where Universal Pest & Termite comes in. Universal has been protecting homes from termite damage for over 22 years. Protection begins with a simple inspection. Most termite damage claims could have been avoided by having a termite inspection by a seasoned expert. Our inspectors have many years of experience in detecting termite activity.

Frequently Asked Questions

There is a wide range of damage that termites can cause. Termites like to eat wood, and they often create a network of tunnels beneath your floors. They also hunt for food in dryer vents and in electrical equipment. Remember to inspect for any signs of termite activity if you come across some wood rot you think looks damaged.
Home termite treatment is the process of controlling ants, roaches, spiders and other insects that live in a home or buildings. Ants, roaches, and spiders can transmit diseases like salmonella, hepatitis B and staphylococcus Aureus which are very problematic for people to become infected with. Our pest control team offers safe solutions for these issues including preventing infestations before they happen.
Termites are attracted to any rotting wood and the following may be signs of infestation: the presence of swarming termites, a drop in moisture level, an unreasonable amount of dry wood, a mound or a swarm pattern, unusually dark droppings and they often feed on plants such as grass.
Termite treatments need to be done more often in the hotter areas of the country, but if you notice any termites coming into your home then it is necessary that you get termite treatment.
Termites are a type of pest that needs to be taken care of regularly. If you have other pest control systems in the home for ants or wasps, termites can still spread to these areas and cause further damage. For this reason, it's recommended to make a new appointment every three months.
Termites can enter your home in a lot of different ways. For the best protection, they recommend using the services of a professional. Twenty minutes of treatment can lead to years of termite-free living. Contact your local termite treatment company for more information.
