Bigfoot Pest Control

TERMITE PEST CONTROL SCHAUMBURG

Termite Damage

Termites cause millions of dollars of damage to US homes and businesses. Termites tunnel inside wood and out of sight, meaning most property owners will only spot the signs of termite activity after they’ve done significant damage. We can inspect your home for signs of termite damage so you can minimize structural repair costs further down the line.

Termite Inspection

Call us for fast, reliable, thorough, and accurate termite property inspections. We provide Veterans Association termite inspections and wood destroying organism inspection reports. VA and WDI reports are often requirements for home loans. Don’t have your loan approval delayed. Whether you, your realtor or the mortgage company requests the inspection, we respond as quickly as possible and handle the rest of the process. We do VA and WDI reports. We have your Veterans Association and Wood Destroying Insects inspections covered!

 

Indoor Termite Inspection

Once we’ve completed the outdoor termite inspection, we move into the house to inspect the attic, basement and other areas of the home. We use a flashlight to look in dark corners, between studs and around beams. Our termite inspection includes every room and all areas of the house. When we inspect the inside of the home, we are looking for pinholes in drywall, wood, wallpaper and other indications of termites.

Outdoor Termite Inspection

Typically, we start by inspecting the yard, crawl spaces, under the house, garage and any other outdoor structures. We will move leaves and debris around and look for small mounds of sawdust, dead wings or any other evidence of termites. If any mud tubes are spotted, it can mean termites are traveling both underground and above ground.

Comprehensive Termite Reports

After completing the inspection, we document all our findings and prepare a termite report for the homeowner, mortgage company, realtor or whoever requested the inspection. If you’re planning to purchase a home or you think your house is infested with termites, call us today!

Common Signs of Termite Damage

Floor Damage

sometimes termite damage appears similar to water damage. Swollen floors and ceilings, as well as blisters on painted surfaces, may be indicative of termite damage. As termites burrow through your home’s floors, walls and ceiling boards, the appearance and structure of these surfaces changes. We recommend that you take the time to keenly inspect any floor boards that feel springier or spongier than normal. This is also the same for ceilings that appear to be sagging.

Frass

Termites damage wood when they feed. One of the best indicators of substantial termite damage is the presence of frass (termite droppings) within your home. Frass is usually deposited in mounds of tiny pellets that look similar to sawdust.

Hollow Sounding Wood

As the termites feed, they leave empty spaces within the structure of the wood. Damaged wood usually sounds hollow when tapped on lightly. If you hear a hollow sound when you knock on various wooden surfaces in your home, you should schedule an inspection immediately.

Mud Tubes

Mud tubes are built be subterranean termites as a means of protecting themselves against drying out. These termites usually use mud tubes to travel safely to their food, wood. If you spot any mud tubes leading up to your home or within the building, it is likely that the termites have already started feeding on the structure of your home.

Flying Termites & Termite Wings

When conditions are right, termite swarms take to the air to mate and create new, satellite colonies. After mating, reproductive termites shed their wings. Swarming activity is a sure sign of a termite infestation around your home.

Excellent service. I have been a realtor for 20 years, and I needed a termite inspection for a V.A. Loan on a house I had listed. They came out in a timely matter and even handled all the lenders’ questions after the report was submitted. Excellent service and reasonably priced. The owner, Chris, answered the phone when we had questions and also communicated via email. I would highly recommend them.

We were mortified to find a mouse in our finished basement. My wife wanted to do anything we could to address the problem. This was the Friday night after Thanksgiving so I was not optimistic we could get anyone ASAP. My wife left a message with Bigfoot and 8:30am the next morning I got a call from Chris! He went over our whole situation and even offered to come out that morning when he could tell how concerned we were and how we needed someone ASAP. Chris could not have been nicer or more helpful with us. He did a full inspection and offered great detail on what we are dealing with. He answered every single crazy question my wife had and he did it calmly and with reassurance. Chris took care of our situation and put our minds at easy. I cannot thank him enough and recommended Bigfoot enough! Definitely work with someone local before you call some big chain!

First mouse in the house! We had no idea what to do after finding our kitchen tore up from these little guys. I mean full on panic. I am so thankful we didn’t call a chain company that would have most definitely ripped us off! We called Bigfoot and Chris, who I’m pretty sure is the owner, spent time explaining what to expect and what the cost would be. Shocking, I know. A business that is upfront with pricing and processes?! Amazing. It’s obvious these people run an honest business and don’t take advantage of customers desperation. Luis came to the house that same day. He was polite, funny, thorough and KNOWLEDGEABLE. The anxiety I had dealing with this for days had quickly disappeared after he checked every relevant corner of my home for entry points and signs of more critters. I haven’t seen a mouse in days after the service. Bottom line: 1. Check your screen door for holes 2. If you’re unlucky enough to have a pest problem and don’t want to lose your shirt in a pointless contract, CALL BIGFOOT PEST CONTROL! *also, tip your tech 😊 it’s nice to be nice and these guys really go above and beyond. Good luck!

I feel good about my choice of Bigfoot Pest Control! I know if I call back for any additional support, I can count on them. Thank you!

Luis came out to do an inspection and was thorough. He found areas that mice could be getting in that we didn’t think of checking and sure enough found droppings. Luis was very personable and professional and patient with any concerns or questions I had. Also when calling for service Chris was great and very responsive, they are the reason for their high ratings. I called another pest control company prior and never received a call back so I’m glad I went with Bigfoot Pest Control.
