An Infestation Can Lower Your Home Value
Is your home infested with termites? You’re not alone, as each year – according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture; termites contaminate about 600,000 homes across the country. This not only lowers the home resale value but costs homeowners over billions of dollars in termite inspection and pest control treatment.
Before putting your home up for sale, it’s important to get a termite inspection. This is important as every homeowner needs to know whether there is a termite infestation and ensure the buyer doesn’t feel misled if there is any hidden infestation.Getting an inspection done can prove to the buyer that there have been no recent termite infestations in your home.
However, if you have had an infestation in your home in the past, it is highly recommended for you to disclose that report to the prospective buyer, for the sake of full disclosure. This ensures the sale is ethical, and the honesty can go a long way in earning their trust.
Termites aren't the only organisms that destroy homes. Damage from Wood Destroying Organisms, such as fungi or Carpenter Bees, can be discovered during an inspection.
We look for the tell-tale signs of infestation, such as:
- Piles of Small Wings
- Mud Tubes Built for Traveling Above Ground
- Pinholes in Drywall or Wallpaper
- Damaged or Hollow-Sounding Wood
- Small Piles of Sawdust
- Other Specific Termite Indicators

Prevention is Better than Cure
This old adage is highly relevant when it comes to maintaining your home. By getting the whole house treated for subterranean termites, you not only prevent your home from expensive damage, but also retain its value.
Homes in Central Texas are highly susceptible to termite damage, but by engaging in preventative measures and being proactive, you can keep the value of your home at its peak level. Even if you are not actively looking to sell your home, taking preventive measures will help you keep termites from damaging your walls, furniture, and other structures of your home.
You cannot assume that your home is free from termite just because you’ve never seen them. Termites only swarm once or twice each year, and you might miss it!

Hear from my satisfied customers…
I had Joe drop by to inspect my home before our 10 month warranty inspection. He was the consummate professional. Having conducted home inspections for many, many years, Joe offered insights on ensuring the longevity of our home, as well as tips and techniques for beautification and easy home improvement. Joe provided great service and information, all in a very relaxed, approachable way. For these reasons, Bumblebee Home Inspection garners my highest recommendation!
New Home Inspection
Joe did our home inspection and was very honest knowledgeable and punctual. It is nice to find someone we could trust. I will be recommending him to our neighbors as they will be needing a inspection too. We built a new home last year and needed a professional inspection before we met with our builder at our 1 year meeting. Glad we came upon Joe!
Joe made thorough work of our inspection. We were very happy with his work ethic and his review of the property. Highly recommend.
