Addressing Termite Damage After Dealing With An Infestation In Baldwyn

Termites crawling on the ground

Baldwyn is a wonderful place to live and raise a family; it is our little corner of heaven. We at McCary Pest Control want you to stay happy with your home and not be bothered by nasty termites. Termites have been around since the time of the dinosaurs, and they eat non-stop: 24 hours a day, seven days a week. If you suspect that there may be some in your home or you know that you have them, we can offer suggestions to address the issue and stop it from recurring.

Signs Of Termite Damage You Should Look Out For

No one wants termites in the home you love - it is your biggest investment. If you think you may have termites, call us today. Evidence of termite damage may include: 

  • Cracked or bubbling paint
  • Termite droppings 
  • Wood that sounds hollow 
  • Discarded wings from swarmers
  • Sunken tunnels underneath wallpaper or drywall
  • Mud tubes on the foundation or exterior walls

If avoiding termite damage feels like too huge of a job for you to take on, let McCary Pest Control technicians come and take care of the problem for you. We want your home to be as safe and pleasant as our own. 

Termites cause millions of dollars in damage in this country each year. Damage can go on for years without detection as it becomes more and more advanced and what's worse is that most homeowner insurance policies do not cover it. We at McCary Pest Control want to help you avoid this damage and the costs that come with it.

Just A Few Termites Or An Infestation? 

Goodness knows you do not want to come upon a swarm of termites, but you also want to know the extent of the problem. If you find dead swarmers on the windowsill, it is a sure sign that you have termites. Mud tubes on the outside of the house underneath the siding are also a tell-tale clue. These tubes look like an old dead worm stuck to the side of the house. If you see these tubes or other signs of termites on your property, call us. If an infestation is caught early we may not even need to treat the inside of your home, but even if we do our pest control products are eco-friendly safe for you, your family, and your pets.

Repairing Termite Damage 

Termite tunnels in drywalls of your home are alarming enough, but there are ways to repair any destruction they may cause. Depending upon your handiness with tools, you may be able to tackle some of this yourself. You should be sure to seal gaps, introduce grading and drainage to prevent moisture from gathering around your foundation, fix leaky pipes, keep vents clear, and replace damaged wood. In warmer climes like Baldwyn, it is best to replace any wood that has been damaged rather than use a wood hardener. Regular termite treatments will also help protect your investment whether you hire out for repairs or do it yourself.
