Do You Know What's Under Your Home?

We Control and Eliminate Termite Infestations in The Carolinas

Whether you like them or not, termites are amazing creatures. In the forest, they aerate the soil and live a symbiotic life with the microorganisms residing in their guts. The insects communicate through chemical cues most of the time, but when there’s a threat to the colony, the soldiers use their heads to send warning signals to the rest of the group. No matter how amazing the creatures are, they become a real nuisance when these wood-destroying insects invade your home. Termite Control in The Carolinas begins with understanding the characteristics of Eastern Subterranean and Formosan Termites. Nelon-Cole Termite & Pest Control handles the extermination and removal of the insects, protecting homes against damage.


Real Estate Reports

Wood Destroying Insect Reports and CL-100 The WDIR and CL-100 is issued for informational purposes and is required to reveal information concerning evidence of wood-destroying insects only. The inspector must report all visible evidence of wood-destroying insects and any conditions conducive to subterranean termites. The WDIR is not a warranty as to the absence of wood-destroying insects; it is a report of the visible presence or absence of wood-destroying insects at the time of the inspection.
Though sometimes referred to as a clearance letter or a termite letter, it is not a "clearance letter," in that it does not necessarily clear a structure; and it is not a "termite letter," in that it addresses more than just termites. Insects commonly noted on the WDIR include subterranean termites, powder post beetles, old house borers, carpenter ants and sometimes carpenter bees. Other, less common insects may also be reported. "Conditions conducive to subterranean termites" must also be reported. At a minimum, wood making direct soil contacts, cellulose debris under a structure and excessively wet wood (wood moisture content of 20% or greater than) in the crawl space or other areas of the structure must be reported as conditions conducive to subterranean termites. The presence of wood-decay fungi may be listed as a condition conducive to subterranean termites. Other conditions that may be conducive to termites include insufficient clearance between wood members and the soil, excessive moisture in the crawl space, construction flaws or improper grading. The inspector must evaluate these and other conditions individually for each property inspected. Termites are very capable of finding the only possible entry point into a structure. They need only a 1/32 of an inch crack in a mortar joint or concrete expansion joint to enter a structure. They build earthen shelter tubes to reach the wood from the ground where they live. Termites can infest finished floors covered by vinyl flooring or carpeting, interior walls, and other areas that cannot be seen during an inspection. Furthermore, research has shown that termites can build tubes at the rate of approximately two and one-half inches per hour. Therefore, it is possible for termites to show up shortly after the structure has been inspected. This is also true when talking about old house borers. An inspection of the structure may not show evidence at the time of the inspection. However, depending on the age of structure they can become active after an inspection was performed.
