What Does a Termite Inspection Entail in South Jersey?

Posted on

Window frame termite damageBenjamin Franklin once said – “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.”

Termites quietly cause billions of dollars in property damages every year!

A few minutes of your time, once a year with a certified inspector can save you hundreds of dollars in treatment and/or damage repair costs!

 A Termite Inspection should be completed by a New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection Agency Certified Inspector.

A qualified inspector will perform a thorough and meticulous inspection of your home and property – all readily accessible, visible areas will be inspected, reporting any evidence of termite infestation.

What the inspector is looking for – Areas Conducive to Termite Infestation:

  •      Crawl ventilation poor/marginal
  •      Soil in crawl space is moist/wet
  •      Fill under foundation settling
  •      Paper collars around pipes
  •      Inaccessible crawl area
  •      Wooden forms around drains/plumbing
  •      Cracks in concrete foundation
  •      Dirt filled porches inaccessible
  •      Stucco/brick/siding below grade
  •      Wood to ground contact
  •      Shrubs/plants adjacent to structure
  •      Patio/walkway adjacent to structure
  •      Irrigation adjacent to structure
  •      Flower boxes adjacent/attached to structure
  •      Landscape timbers termite infested
  •      Mulch termite infested
  •      Trees/shrubs termite infested
  •      Air conditioning drain close to structure

testimonial we recently received from the Messineo’s in Cinnaminson, NJ:

“We have been customers of AB-Con Termite and Pest Control since we purchased our Cinnaminson home in 2001. Our home was already covered under warranty by the previous homeowners and the termite warranty was transferred into our name by a phone call. Since then, AB-Con comes out each year to re-inspect our home for live termite activity – and there has been none! We have also used them successfully for some pest issues we have had over the years. We would recommend AB-Con to anyone – and we have!”
