Oahu’s Pest Control Experts Explain the Termite Inspection Process, Koolaupoko, Hawaii

If you suspect you have termites infesting your Oahu home, obtain a professional opinion from a seasoned pest management company. Specially trained in termite inspection, AAA Termite & Pest Control in Kaneohe, HI, will search every corner of your home for the signs of termites.

Here’s what you can expect during their visit:

  • Interior Termite Inspection: These thorough inspections search every nook and cranny of your home’s interior, including behind walls, in the attic, basement, and other crawlspaces. Termites may also be present in baseboards, window trim, door frames, or even in your furniture. This termite inspection will also include examining your plumbing, as termites often enter homes through pipes.

  • termite inspectionExterior Termite Inspection: The signs of termite infestation may also be present outside. During this phase of your termite inspection, the technician will check your foundation, driveways, walkways, porches, and other possible points of entry. Wood-to-ground contact, including mulch piles and stacked lumber, are particularly common “gateways” between the outside world and your home.

  • Species Identification: The two main termite varieties that put Hawaiian homes at risk are drywood and subterranean—also called ground—termites. Drywood termites usually nest directly inside wood and tend to infiltrate homes by air, so you’ll likely find them in furniture and crawlspaces. Subterranean termites nest in the ground and invade homes through a network of mud tubes. AAA Termite & Pest Control uses a different treatment method for each species.

For thorough termite inspections and effective treatments, rely on the best pest management company on Oahu. Call AAA Termite & Pest Control at (808) 247-5533 for an estimate, or visit their website for more information.
