    Give Rhett a raise he was thorough and didn't try to sell me anything I didn't need. He was there for a termite inspection in a house that I am selling. Buyers attorney took the liberty of saying their was a termite infestation and buyers inspector said their was visible evidence of termite tubes and staining. As I suspected there was nothing.

Before and After
  • Repairing A Termite Damaged Wall in Red Bank, NJ
    Before
    Repairing A Termite Damaged Wall in Red Bank, NJ
    After

    Recently, a two-man home repair crew went out on a service call to a home in Red Bank, NJ, to repair a wall that had been severely damaged from a termite infestation. Although the home was treated after termites were discovered, as often happens, there was already damage from these wood-devouring insects. The drywall around a window in his living room had to be completely removed and replaced. 

    Prior to starting our repair work, we first inspected the entire interior and exterior of the property before beginning my repairs. Even though a termite treatment was recently done, we wanted to be 100% positive that there was no more active termite activity in the home. After ensuring the home was free of termites, we began the repairs.

    First, we needed to remove all of the damaged wood, insulation, and drywall. The good news from all this was that it could have been worse. Fortunately, the termite damage was limited to this one section of his home. Next, after cleaning the area, we and installed all new pressure-treated wood, replaced the insulation, and installed new drywall. Pressure treating is a preservative process that helps wood withstand the elements and ward off termites, microorganisms and fungal decay. As we were replacing the drywall the homeowner told us that he already scheduled an appointment with a professional painting company to paint and spackle the drywall. 

    Now, with the repairs done, the wall was as good as new! As you can see, no one would have the slightest inkling that this home once had termite damage.

Signs of a Termite Infestation:

  • Swarmers (young winged termites), or their discarded wings near windowsills and doors (especially in early springtime).
  • Mud tubes built by subterranean termites between the soil and any wooden part of the structure. Mud tubes are typically found near the home's foundaton.
  • Blistered pieces of wood or wood that sounds hollow when tapped.
  • Uneven or bubbling paint.
  • Wood-colored droppings that look like sawdust.

Answers to Your Termite Questions

  • What do termites look like?

    Closeup of a termite

    Termites are small, soft-bodied, and usually pale-colored. The antennae are relatively short, straight, and thread-like or beadlike. Flying forms have two pairs of wings of equal length. The wings are often much longer than the body; however, short-winged forms also occur. Unlike ants, termites never have a constricted “waist” or elbowed antennae.

    Often, homeowners first encounter termites when the young reproductives swarm from the nest. The first question homeowners want to resolve is what they dealing with – termites or flying ants.

  • What is the difference between a termite and a flying ant?

    Termite versus flying ant

    People often confuse swarming termites with flying ants. There are distinctive differences, however. In order to discern a termite from a winged ant, compare the visual biological differences:

    Ants have a narrow, wasp-like waist (more "cinched" in the middle of the body). Termites do not have a defined waist. Ant wings are about equal to the body size, with the fore and hind wings of unequal length. Termites have four wings of equal length that are nearly twice as long as their bodies. Ant antennae are L-shaped, with a "bend," while termite antennae are straight.

  • How do termites get into your home?

    Because termites need moisture and have a low tolerance to air and light, they live underground, attacking a home from below. Here's how:

    Diagram of termites building mud tubes

    By building ingenious mud tubes, termites can cross many feet of concrete, brick, cinder block, treated wood, or metal termite shields, making it possible to reach the upper floors of a structure.

    Diagram

    Termites eat wood from the inside out, avoiding detection for years while doing extensive damage.

  • What are termites?

    Termite damage

    Termites are social insects that live in organized colonies similar to a beehive. Termite nests are highly-structured communities where termites are split into two major groups according to their reproductive ability. The sterile termites are wingless blind workers and soldiers who stay underground to do the heavy lifting such as foraging and nest-building. Termites are often called "white ants" because of their pale color.

    Termites are grouped according to what they eat: grass-eating, subterranean, soil-feeding, drywood, and dampwood termites. Subterranean and drywood termites cause most of the damage to homes and buildings.
