Pest & Termite Inspection Services
Damage from wood-destroying insects may go unnoticed for years, which is one of the reasons the North Carolina Department of Agriculture recommends annual evaluations of your home. Don’t take a chance with your Charlotte-area house: Let the experts at Americas Choice Inspections find out for sure. Call us at (704) 504-9798 to schedule a termite inspection.
Our experienced team is made up of trained, licensed, and insured professionals with backgrounds in home construction, nationally certified radon testing, radon mitigation, and pest control. We’ve inspected thousands of homes since 2009 and can identify whether wood-destroying insects have targeted your home.
Inspectors You Can Trust
North Carolina has three classes of pest control professionals: registered technicians, certified applicators, and licensees. Most termite inspectors work under another person’s pest control license because they need treatment experience to receive the top designation. All of our inspectors are experienced in this field, and our team member Bill Scott has had the opportunity to serve on the board for the North Carolina Department of Agriculture Structural Pest Division.
Schedule a Termite Inspection
Our inspectors are associated with Queen City Pest Control, qualifying them to perform wood-destroying insect inspections and issue the state-required forms in both North Carolina and South Carolina.
What We Look for During Termite Inspections
Subterranean termites are the type of insects that usually invade Winston Salem and the Triad area, Asheville, Mooresville, and other areas of North Carolina. NC State University Cooperative Extension outlines the telltale signs to look for:
- Swarming — Mature colonies produce swarmers (winged adults). Swarmers found inside a house often means there is an infestation somewhere in the residence.
- Mud Tubes — The mound dwellers may travel through mud tubes that can be found on walls, floor joists, and floor systems.
- Feeding — Look for wood that sounds hollow when you tap on it with the handle of a screwdriver; wood that is soft and falls apart easily when poked with a tool also signals a problem.
If the Pest Inspection Finds a Problem
If our termite inspectors discover evidence of an infestation, take the time to research and find a reputable, licensed extermination company. We can refer you to a licensed pest control company that can treat your home and put it under a warranty.
