Termites In Richmond, VA, Are No Match For Greenshield

Here in the United States, termites are responsible for 2 billion dollars worth of property damage every year. Do you know why this is so high? It’s because if you aren’t actively looking for signs of termites, they could already be causing the damage that will cost you thousands later. What’s worse, the damage they cause can be confused with water damage. If this wasn’t scary enough, termites damage 600,000 houses a year, and a homeowner like you pays an average of $3,000 to repair termite damage. Luckily for you, Greenshield Pest Control is here to help by providing an eco-friendly program that will check for signs of termites, locate their colonies, and eliminate them.

Nick helped take care of an unexpected issue for me that I discovered once I went under the house to repair a pipe - camel crickets and a black snake. I can not stand those spider looking things and I could only locate the snake skin, not the snake. Nick swiftly handled the crickets and located the black snake wedged between the foundation blocks. Awesome service, friendly, great attitude, and very professional. Would recommend Nick to everyone!

I was having issues with my crawl space in regards to humidity and fungus as well as not enough insulation in my attic. Nick came out and took care of the inspection, he was great! He pointed out issues that I had no idea of. That and it was thousands cheaper than other quotes I had recieved. The techs who came out were great, very friendly and professional, and did great work. Thank you Nick and Greenshield for helping me better my home.

Have You Ever Seen The Signs Of A Potential Termite Invasion?

Termite Control Richmond VA

Structural Damage

You will see damage to the window sills, door frames, and other wooden structures around the house. One way to test is to see if they continue to open and close smoothly. If they don’t, there could be hidden damage. Floors can also indicate a termite infestation when they begin to buckle or sag. The damage can sometimes be hard to diagnose since the damage can mimic water damage. 

Bubbling Paint

When termites infest your house’s wood, they like to live just below the surface. The paint bubbling isn’t a direct result of termites, but the moisture they bring in is. Termites love moisture, and the painted surface will react by peeling and bubbling. That doesn’t mean it’s always due to moisture, when the wood behind the moisture is consumed, the thin layer of paint will crack.

Seen here are pin point holes caused by termites. If your home here in Richmond, VA has pin point holds in the wood, you could have a termite infestation.

Pinholes In Wood

Termites leave pinholes in wood because it’s their primary way to exit the drywall and other wooden structures. When you see these holes it’s also a sign the larger infestation will begin since adult termites exit through the holes before the onset of reproduction. These termite pinholes are also where the termites defecate, clamp it together to form crusty caps that cover up the holes.

Other Signs You Have Termites In Your Home

There Are Two Types Of Termites In Central, VA

These termites live, forage, and eat below ground in colonies ranging from 20,000 – 500,000.

Removing Attractions

Termites eat cellulose, which is a component of wood and plants. Termites need to eat 24/7. That’s why they are so voracious when it comes to eating your house. But another thing they want is moisture, their mud tubes contain moisture to keep them protected as they travel from the colony to your house. The first thing we have to do is remove pockets of moisture and access areas around your house. Then any rotted wood and other materials will have to be removed.
