Termite inspection and remediation services are important in Virginia!

Most insects are merely a nuisance by their presence but termites can be destructive to your home, causing thousands of dollars in damage and, in most cases, the infestations go unnoticed until the termite damage is severe. 

Here in Central Virginia, we are in a moderate to heavy risk area for termites (or sometimes referred to as “wood destroying insects” or “WDI”). They destroy our homes by eating the wood that supports them and their colonies can number in the tens of thousands. 

The type of termites that we find in the Greater Richmond area; including Midlothian, Chester, Chesterfield, Mechanicsville, Glen Allen, Henrico, and Tri-cities, are subterranean termites. They live below ground and can access structures through cracks as small as 1/64 of an inch wide, making them very difficult to detect.


What to look for around your home

Most home and business owners are unsure of what to look for when it comes to termite infestations. Wood rot often gets mistaken for termite damage. Dirt found in the wood or protruding from cracks in the wood is often an indication of the presence of termites, and cream-colored insects inside of the wood are a clear indication of active infestations. 

Another sign of active termite infestations is swarming reproductives. These occur in the springtime, usually after a warm rain. They are small, black insects with wings that fall off shortly after they swarm. They can number in the hundreds and are usually found around the windows as they become attracted to the light and try to get outside. Because they look different from the workers and soldiers they are often confused with winged ants. 

If you think you have an infestation, or if you just haven’t had an inspection in a while, contact the professionals at Lewis Pest Control!  We understand that your home is one of the biggest investments you have. That’s why we only use the best termiticide on the market.
