WHAT TO EXPECT WITH BREDA
SELLING A HOME?
Termites live in shelter tubes. These tunnels help regulate the termites body temperature. The first three images above show three different tunneling patterns. But, all three had live termite activity. Keep in mind that the termites are blind and are looking for anything cellulose, soft, and palatable.
We've all seen damage like this image, around an exterior window. Is it termite damage or just wood-rot? With our technology, we were able to show the homeowner there were no active termites. The Termatrac detected no movement, the moisture meter findings were positive, and the infrared showed the homeowner exactly how much wood was damaged.
Termites will swarm in the Spring, but termites are active 24/7/365. The ideal conditions for termites to swarm would be having the ground temperature at 70 degrees and a warm, sunny day following a heavy rain. Termites can swarm as early as February and as late as July, here in Georgia. It takes an average termite colony five years before reproducers develop. If you are seeing swarming termites in or around your home, you have a very mature, large termite colony nearby and you need to have the home inspected thoroughly. Most homeowners will come home to find the flying bugs inside their home.
The termites swarm to light and sometimes they do swarm inside. Keep in mind, the reproducers do not do any damage. If you see swarming termites, call us, we'll show you with our technology where those hidden termites are located. No more guessing.
