In the United States, termites cause over a billion dollars in damage annually. Undetected and untreated, termites can severely damage and, in time, destroy a home.
Get a professional. Considering what you have invested in your home, there's just too much at stake and too many potential problems to trust the job of termite inspection and treatment to anyone but a trained, experienced professional. The signs of termite infestation are very difficult to detect, and often are in inaccessible places. Inspection must be thorough and painstaking, covering every inch of the building that comes in contact with soil.
