Protect your most valuable investments from active termite colonies. Damage from termites in a home is commonly found inside wall studs or in the form of shelter tubes along foundations, windows or walls. Termites often live in trees, soil, lumber, landscape logs, mulch,and wooden structures. Therefore, wooden structures are at high risk of damage caused by termites feeding. Identification of active termites in a home is key to control and stopping further damage or growth of an active termite colony. Here in the Midwest, the type of termite found which feeds on wooden structures is the Eastern Subterranean Termite (Reticulitermes flavipes) and it is the economically most important termite here in the United States as it causes more the $5 billion dollars in damage each year in the USA.
Preliminary Termite Treatment Inspection
Our state certified commercial pest control technicians will perform a preliminary termite inspection to the structure to identify the presence of active termites, termite related damage, old or abandoned termite shelter tubes or staining indicating active termites or previously active termites.
Termite treatment will be recommended based upon findings. If no termites are found it is the perfect opportunity to protect your home or business against costly damages. The Sentricon System is the Stand Alone Solution to eliminate active termites and protect against future termite colony attacks.

Real Estate Termite Inspections
Midway Pest Management will perform a thorough visual inspection of your property. Our highly-skilled pest control technicians will check the outside and inside of your property and can even go through the crawl space if available. We’ll examine your home from top to bottom for any signs of termites and then provide you with a full inspection report.
Suppose we find signs of a termite infestation. In that case, we can provide you with a termite inspection report of the infested areas, the severity of the termite damage, and an estimated quote for our services to treat your infestation. Our services will include an integrated pest management approach, which eliminates termites from your property and consists of our recommendations on repairing vulnerable points and addressing practices that make your property attractive to termites.
Our team also provides preventative measures if there are no signs of a termite infestation. During our inspection, we also watch out for dry rot, water damage, plumbing leaks, and any other factors that can affect your wood and make it susceptible to termite infestations.
We can recommend ways to address these concerns best and reduce the risk of attracting termites until your next termite inspection.
Signs of Termite Infestation
Termites are destructive pests that can cause serious damage to wooden structures. It is essential to detect termite infestation early to prevent costly damage.
There are many signs of termite infestations. These includes:
- Hollowed or damaged wood. Termites eat through the wood from the inside out, leaving the exposed surface intact but hollow. You can check for hollow spots by probing exposed wood with a screwdriver or similar tool. If it sounds hollow or is easily penetrated, there may be an infestation present.
- Soft or damaged wood. Termites can cause wood to become brittle and deteriorate from the inside out, making it soft and discolored. You can test for softness by pressing on it with a knife blade or screwdriver. If it feels spongy or gives way easily under pressure, there may be an infestation present.
- Mud tubes. These are often found on exterior walls and foundations in areas where termites travel from their nests to sources of food. These tubes are usually about the width of a pencil and indicate that there is an active termite infestation in your building.
- Termite swarms. These occur in the spring and fall after rain when groups of winged termites hatch out looking for mates and suitable locations to start new colonies. Seeing a swarm indicates that there is an active infestation at work.
- Termite droppings. These can often be seen within walls as sawdust-like material around exit holes made by termites chewing through wood surfaces. Drywood termites produce frass that takes on the appearance of small pellets that may be found near entry points on wooden structures.
- Stuck windows and doors. These may indicate a problem with your home’s structural integrity due to termite activity damaging surrounding wooden structures making them difficult to operate correctly.
- Clicking sounds coming from walls. These could indicate movement from soldier termites guarding their colony; they have large mandibles which enable them to bite through wooden materials
- Unusual discoloration of paint or wallpaper mimics cracks caused by uneven application but signals potential termite damage below this surface layer.
Early detection is essential for treating termites effectively before they do considerable harm to your property. Don’t wait too long until it’s too late to avoid costly repairs.
