Don’t Let a Missed Termite Inspection Leave You Vulnerable

Oct 15, 2021

Cliched as it sounds, there is no denying the truth of this statement—an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. That is why you take care of your health by eating right, exercising, and visiting the dentist twice a year. This attitude carries over to your belongings. You spend Saturdays changing your car’s oil, mowing your lawn, and cleaning your home. You may even spend time in the spring airing out your rooms while deep cleaning. Have you stopped to think about what you may have left out? Just like your car needs maintenance, your Pleasanton home benefits from regular termite inspections from a dependable pest control company.

Reasons to Keep Your Fall Termite Inspection on Your Calendar

While you are scheduling your car’s next oil change, why not call your trusted pest control professional as well? They come in, assess the situation, offer solutions, and get on their way with little interruption to your day. Check out these four reasons to keep your regularly scheduled fall inspection:

  1. Termites are hard to distinguish from ants. When you see an ant-like bug flying around, you may decide to dismiss it as a flying ant. Not so fast! Termites look similar to ants, but they cause much more damage, especially if you leave them unchecked. Trained pest control professionals know what they are looking for with better precision than the average homeowner.
  2. What you don’t see CAN hurt your home. These wood-boring pests love to stay out of sight, but they should never be out of your mind. By the time you notice the bubbling paint or hollow-sounding walls, it may be too late. Termites can chew on the insides of your home for years before you experience the results of their nearly 24/7 munching.
  3. Save money and headaches later. Regular inspections are aimed to catch termites before there is extensive damage. The more damage they cause, the higher the bill will be to fix things. Imagine the inconvenience of having contracts around trying to repair the damage that could have been prevented. Keeping your fall and spring inspection appointments can ultimately save you money.
  4. Keep the resale value of your home. You may choose to sell your home. When the buyer arranges for a termite inspection, what will they find? Termites can leave you with little selling leverage and much bigger problems.
