The above video shows you three ways to check for termites around your OKC home. Remember, you need to check your house for these signs of termites every few months, especially during the spring and summer months.
With rain and extreme heat and humidity in Oklahoma City, your home could easily become susceptible to termites. We don’t want that to happen. So look for these three things:
- Termite wings – these can be found around the exterior of your home, especially around wood. Look for moist or rotten areas of wood and then search for wings. If you find wings, then you might have termites setting up a new home within your home and then you need to call an OKC pest control professional to help you.
- Mud tunnels – if you see mud tunnels around cracks and grooves within brick, wood or around door and window frames, then you’ve found termites. These mud tunnels are how they’re accessing the interior of your home. These need to be destroyed and the walls of your home checked for an infestation.
- Moist and rotten wood – this is most common way to check for termites, so make sure you search around the exterior of your home for any moist or rotten wood because termites love it. Search for holes or cracks. If you see any serious damage, call a pest control pro today!
So, those are 3 ways to check around your OKC home for signs of termites. As spring time rolls in, make sure you check the exterior of your home. Don’t leave it alone and think everything will be fine. Take 15-30 minutes to look around and double check.
