When you are about to buy a home it might be a good thing to have it inspected for termites. This is one of the most destructive insects known to mankind when it comes to the destruction of your home. The termite will destroy your home from the foundation all the way up. A termite inspector will check the interior and the exterior of your home to make sure that you are termite free.
Every year many people lose their homes to the pesky termite because they did not find out in sufficient time to save their home from their destruction. If you feel that your home might be infected with termites you should have a termite inspection done immediately. You need to act right away in order to save your home from being by the termites. Termites colonize in three castes. There is the reproductive caste that does nothing but lays eggs and keeps reproducing more termites for the colony. Then there is the worker caste that does the work of bringing the food back to the colony. Afterwards there is the soldier caste that goes out and finds the food for the workers and the reproducible caste. The termite inspector will be able to find all three castes in the colony and help you to destroy them.
The destruction of your home can be stopped when the termites are found and treated. The termites are usually stopped by the use of a chemical. The Termite Controller and the Termite Inspector could have been the same person or company. There are many notable companies that offer free termite inspections and then will proceed to sell you the service of getting rid of the termites. Those that work as a Technician know how to place the chemical that will rid you of the termite making sure that everything is safe. In order to rid you of the termites the Technician will put the chemical in a trench that divides the house and the soil.
They usually use wood substitutes as bait for the soldier termite to spot who will then inform the worker caste. The worker caste will come and take the food back to the reproducible caste. That is when the Technician switches the original bait to bait that has the termiticide. This is typically how the Technician can rid you of your termites and keep them away from your home. It is very important that you get a termite inspection as soon as you realize that there is a possibility of a problem.
