Termite/Wood Destroying Insect Inspections

Wood destroying insects include: termites, carpenter ants, carpenter bees, and wood boring beetles.

The inspector does not have to see live insects to call a structure infested based upon visible evidence. Based upon the education and experience of an inspector, evidence of termite / WDI activity goes beyond seeing live insects. Termite mud / shelter tubes that are undisturbed and wings without any sign of treatment are just two of the signs which may lead an inspector to consider a structure infested.

You may find termite mud / shelter tubes along your foundation, near your pipes, in your crawlspace, in your attic or around other access points to your home. Also called shelter tubes, mud tubes are like covered highways termites use to traverse open, exposed spaces like concrete footers. They can’t go through these obstacles, so they build highways over or around them.

Mud tubes are made of soil, wood cellulose and other particulate matter. Termites dehydrate quickly, so they need the protection of an enclosed environment to maintain the humidity levels they need to survive. The tubes also protect them from predators. Mud tubes are about the thickness of a drinking straw or pencil and look like encrusted, dried dirt.

Termites in Mulch
There is no question that termites in mulch are a common occurrence. Mulch is a product of wood and the cellulose is excellent food for termites. Hardwood bark seems to be less attractive than softer woods such as pine nuggets. The moisture, food source, and protection of the mulch make ideal conditions for the survival of termites.
