Termite Inspection For In Hyderabad

For many homeowners here in Northern Virginia, a home is a family’s most significant investment. Protecting your investment involves regularly making sure your home is in good condition and protected from external risks. In Gainesville and the surrounding area, one of the local risks is termites.

Termites can come into homes and other properties where they quickly cause structural and cosmetic damage by eating their way through wood anywhere on the property. Many times, this damage will happen without you being aware of it until months or years later, leaving you with expensive repairs. Homes with termites also lose value on the market, so if you sell your home it may be worth less than it otherwise would have been.

Regular termite inspections in Gainesville, VA by Pest Dial is the best way to protect your property from wood destroying insects. Whether you suspect termites or want to take a proactive approach to termite control with annual inspections, our professional team can identify a termite colony in its initial stages so that we can eliminate it fast.

Benefits of Regular Termite Inspections at Your Home

Although there are dozens of termites throughout the US, the termites found in this area are subterranean termites – typically “Eastern Subterranean Termites.” They build underground nests beneath or nearby their food source, relying on moist soil to keep them hydrated.

Their primary purpose is to break down cellulose, which is why they feed on dead or dying trees. But because most homes are made with these same organic materials – wood, paper, and more – termites often find themselves feeding on houses, spreading out and causing significant damage to wood and other parts of the property.

Subterranean termites do billions of dollars in damage every year, and the average homeowner will spend several thousand repairing their home after an infestation and possibly lose even more during a home sale depending on the extent of the damage. The longer an infestation is able to stay at a home, the more expansive and costly this damage will be.

Getting a professional termite inspection once a year helps to drastically limit the damage termites can do and the cost to treat it. Damage is ongoing with termites. Virginia has warm temperatures all year, so termites never go into hibernation, but instead eat day and night without stopping. This means that every additional day termites spend on your property results in more damage.

Despite how quickly termites destroy a property, the damage will be subtle, especially in the first years, and even though there are ways to identify termites, most homeowners miss the damage for potentially years before it becomes significant enough to be visible. That’s why a professional termite inspection is so valuable.

How Our Termite Inspections Work

We provide one time inspections if you suspect termites. But in our area, we often recommend an affordable annual termite inspection.

An annual termite inspection involves a once a year survey of your property when we look for all potential signs of termite activity. Using both a visual inspection and special equipment, as well as extensive knowledge of local subterranean termites, we search for signs that termites are present or there are elements that may attract them to your property.

Because the inspection happens each year right around the season when termites arrive, termites can never infest a property for more than a few months before we locate and exterminate them. Subterranean termite colonies grow slowly, taking 5 years or more to reach maturity, so these initial months will have the slowest rate of damage and are easiest to treat.

We begin the inspection process by discussing any concerns you have or signs of termites you may have noticed. Then, we proceed with an:

If we detect termites during an inspection, we can quickly move to treatment using a range of solutions that are effective against subterranean termites. We can also apply preventative treatments such as baits or a barrier if we determine there is a significant risk of termites.

Wood Destroying Insect Reports for Real Estate Transactions

When purchasing a home, you want to be certain as the buyer that there is no unseen termite damage that could become an issue. Lenders may also require proof that a home is free of termites and wood destroying insects that could impact the property’s value before they will approve a loan.

Frequently Asked Questions

A termite infestation and damage can be devastating to your home or property. Termites are often called the “silent destroyer” because they may be secretly hiding and thriving in your home or yard without any immediate signs of damage. All termites consume cellulose-based plant materials. Unfortunately, all homes, regardless of their construction type, can provide cellulose food for termite infestation.

Some indications you may have a termite infestation:
  • A temporary swarm of winged insects in your home or from the soil around your home.
  • Any cracked or bubbling paint or frass (termite droppings).
  • Mud tubes on exterior walls, wooden beams or in crawl spaces.
  • Discarded wings from swarmers.
  • Wood that sounds hollow when tapped.

Termites invade homes by crossing from their colonies in yards to foundations. Cracks or gaps around pipes and wires give the pests access inside. Homeowners can also get termites from:
  • Wooden structures, like porches and decks, in direct contact with the ground
  • Stacks of firewood that lean against the house
  • Damp soil near foundations from leaking faucets, gutters, or downspouts
  • Trees and shrubs planted close to the building.
Above ground locations in the house that remain damp enough to support termites without them needing to return to the moist conditions found in the soil.

Commonly, termites live in wooden structures, decayed trees, fallen timber, and soil. Habitats vary among species as some termites require different amounts of moisture. The pests are found in greater numbers in tropical regions where living conditions for termites is optimal.

Subterranean termites are the most abundant variety and can be found throughout the United States. Both dampwood and drywood species are generally more localized in the Southern states.

Subterranean termite homes are usually formed in soil. Within these mounds, termites build elaborate tunnel systems and mud tunnels through which they access above-ground food sources.

Drywood termites live within the wood they consume and oftentimes infest walls and furniture.

When a colony has matured, winged, swarming termites can be seen around windows and doors. Winged termites are highly attracted to sources of light and are most active in springtime. After mating, these termites locate a new breeding site and create another colony, spreading infestations throughout multiple locations in the case of drywood termites.

Workers and soldiers live approximately one to two years. Queen termites may survive for over a decae under optimal climate conditions.

Workers are responsible for gathering and feeding the colony members, maintaining the nest, and caring for young. Soldiers protect the termite colony using their large mandibles to fend off predators. Reproductives are the only sexually mature members of the colony, aside from queens and kings.

Mating Flight

The life cycle of the termite begins with a mating flight, wherein swarming winged reproductive males and females leave established colonies and procreate. After fertilization, winged termites land and shed their wings, going on to form new colonies. These insects then become the king or queen termites of their newly established colonies. The queen and king termites are at the center of the termite life cycle and are responsible for reproduction.


After the fertilized queen lays her eggs, they hatch into pale white larvae.


Eggs hatch into larvae and molt (shed their exoskeletons) to develop into workers, soldiers, primary reproductives and secondary reproductives. A nymph is a young termite that is going through molts to become a reproductive.

The termite growth process begins with a process called molting. First, a termite develops a soft exoskeleton under its current, hard exoskeleton. Then, once the termite has reached maturity, its outermost skeleton splits open, and the new exoskeleton enlarges and hardens. This molting process continues throughout a termite’s life cycle based on the colony’s needs.


Over the course of several molts, these larvae grow to assume a role in one of the three termite colony castes: workers, soldiers and reproductive termites, also known as alates.

Since termites are a constant threat to your home, here are some things you can do during the year to help maintain the effectiveness of Orkin’s termite treatment plan. Small steps make a big difference in termite prevention and sustaining an effective termite treatment plan. Start by eliminating moisture conditions and termite food around your home. These simple steps make your home a less attractive target, helping deter termites.

Eliminate Moisture Problems
  • Repair leaking faucets, water pipes, and A/C units
  • Divert water from foundation
  • Keep gutters and downspouts clean
  • Remove excessive plant cover and wood mulch
Remove Termite Food Sources
  • Keep firewood, lumber or paper away from foundation or crawl space
  • Get rid of stumps and debris near house
  • Place screens on outside vents

Termites are detritivores, or detritus feeders. They feed on dead plants and trees. Termites get nutrients from cellulose, an organic fiber found in wood and plant matter. Wood makes up the majority of the pests’ diet, although termites also eat other materials such as paper, plastic, and drywall. Most species prefer dead wood, but some termites feed on living trees.

Each type of termite has its own dietary preferences.
  • Subterranean termites prefer softwoods, but may invade most species of wood.
  • Dampwood termites generally stay close to the ground, but will choose moist, decaying wood anywhere it is found.
  • Drywood termites are often found in and require little moisture in the wood they eat.

Drywood termites are often found in and require little moisture in the wood they eat.
