Understanding Your Termite Infestation Risk

Many property owners are unaware that Tulsa, Oklahoma is categorized as moderate-to-heavy subterranean termite activity, according to the Termite Infestation Probability Map created by the International Residential Code, which means the potential for termite damage is considered significant.

Swarming
  • Once a colony has reached a certain size, they will swarm. However, since this growth process can take longer than 5 years and during this time they could do considerable damage to your home or property, we recommend also looking for some of the other common signs of infestation.

Termite Wings
  • Termite wings resemble tiny fish scales and can be found shredded near an entry point to your building.

Termite Droppings
  • Termite droppings look like small, ridged, wood-colored pellets. 

Mud Tubes
  • Look for mud tubes on exterior surfaces (see two mud tube pictures above) 

Live Termites
  • Live termites in and around your property (see first termite picture above)

Termite Damage
  • Termite damage in and around your property (see termite damage picture above) 

Exit Holes
  • Pin to nail-sized holes found in sheetrock, trim boards, and other building materials

  • We visually inspect the interior and exterior of your property, including any accessible crawl spaces. We look for any signs of termite activity, (see above termite warning signs list). We also look for conditions conducive to termites, including wood to ground contact, remaining form boards, and wood debris in the crawl space or around the structure.
     

  • Inspections typically last 30 minutes or longer.
     

  • Upon completion of a complimentary termite estimate, we will review findings with you and recommend treatment.
     

  • Upon completion of an official termite inspection (esp. for a real estate transaction) we will provide a detailed termite inspection report. This will include treatment recommendations if applicable.
