How Many Times Should You Consider House Inspection For Termite Control?

by | Sep 6, 2023 | Pest Control

Many houses don’t have termite problems at all, but some never seem to rid themselves completely of termites. Prevention is the primary way to deal with termites, but it only takes a few to create an entire colony. Unless you’re absolutely sure you don’t have an infestation, it’s best to consider professional termite control on a regular basis.

When/How Often?

The professionals at Pink Pest Services recommend that you get your home inspected for termites once a year. You want to choose a professional that can do the job right the first time. While they all charge a fee to come out and check your house, it’s much better to pay now rather than later.

Termite damage can lead to even higher costs to repair. Likewise, it can cost a fortune to get rid of termites once they’re present on the property or in the building.

Get A Contract

Many companies will offer you a maintenance contract. They can take the money out of your account automatically so that you don’t have to worry about remembering to call them. Likewise, they can call and make arrangements to visit the property on the appointed day.

If you do find yourself infested, they’ll be able to handle it professionally and quickly. Once you’re termite free, they may request that you allow them to inspect the home and property once every three or six months to ensure that there are no new occurrences.


Along with house inspections for termite control, it’s also best to ensure that there is no timber on the ground near your house. Fallen branches and twigs should be removed promptly. Dead trees should also be removed, and you should keep a close eye on patio posts and other wood in the ground near the home.
