Termite Home Inspection
If you think you might have termites we highly recommend contacting a termite inspector to perform an inspection either of the entire house or of the area of concern.
A specialized termite inspector from Knockout Pest Control and Termite Control comes to your property to conduct a comprehensive termite inspection. The termite home inspection report details the lists of findings from the termite inspection, including locations of subterranean termite activity, dry-rot and fungus damage and other associated termite damage. After identifying the source of termites and the extent of the subterranean termite activity, the report recommends termite control treatments. The termite inspection report then outlines steps for subterranean termite treatment and wood damage repairs.
