Termites, termites everywhere! Living in NC puts you at Risk!

Termites are a huge problem in North Carolina. When home owners purchase a home, a termite inspection is usually one of the first inspections ordered. Many loan companies require that this inspection is done and will often times ask to see its findings in writing. But, what most people forget is that after being in the home for one year, their home is at risk.

 

In North Carolina, the eastern subterranean termite is the most destructive termite. The swarming times in North Carolina are mostly in the spring or summer but they can be active anytime the soil is a balmy seventy degrees. Think back to our weather this year. How many times has the temperature outside been above seventy degrees?

 

According to the website: www.Termite.com, the areas of High Risk in North Carolina are as follows:

Albemarle, Apex, Asheboro, Asheville, Boone, Burlington, Carrboro, Cary, Chapel Hill, Charlotte, Clayton, Clemmons Village, Concord, Cornelius, Durham, Eden, Elizabeth City, Fayetteville, Garner Gastonia, Goldsboro, Graham, Greensboro, Greenville, Havelock, Henderson, Hendersonville, Hickory, High Point, Holly Springs, Hope Mills, Huntersville, Indian Trail, Jacksonville, Kannapolis, Kernersville, Kings Mountain, Kinston, Laurinburg, Morganton, New Bern, Newton, Pinehurst, Raleigh, Reidsville, Roanoke Rapids, Rocky Mount, Salisbury, Sanford, Shelby, Smithfield, Southern Pines, Statesville, Tarboro, Thomasville, Wake Forest, Wilmington, Wilson and Winston-Salem.

 

If you are unsure of your last termite treatment, please call a termite company and get an inspection and treatment. Most inspections are under one hundred dollars. This money will be well spent.

 

Last week, we discovered termites in one of my listings from one of my investor clients. The owners then decided to inspect their own house and found they had termites there too.

 

Protect yourself from the High Risk of termites by having a termite treatment done every year.

Termites are relentless when it comes to a home. A treatment or two will be necessary.

There is a saying that in North Carolina it's "not a question of if you have termites, but when." Now that being said, in 18 years of selling real estate here, I can think of only maybe half a dozen homes that showed evidence of termites in all these years. And many homes, like mine, also have termite bonds and ongoing treatments to avoid the problem in the first place.
