Termites Damage wood

For generations, Suburban Exterminating has been protecting Nassau and Suffolk County families and businesses from pests like termites. Termites can cause extensive damage to your property and home if they aren’t addressed early. Working with a full-service pest control company before pest problems arise may protect your home from termites and the damage they cause. If you think there could be a termite problem in your home, it is critical that you have a professional termite inspection performed. Suburban Exterminating has experienced technicians you can trust to conduct a thorough termite inspection, and guide you through your options for termite monitoring and elimination

Four Kinds of Termite Inspections:

  • Traditional
  • Real Estate
  • Treatment
  • Re-Inspection


Traditional termite inspections occur when a client has reason to believe there may be termites in their home or business. Our professional team of specialists conduct in-depth investigations to determine the sources of our clients’ issues. We then work with clients to develop a comprehensive treatment plan to address the termites.

Real Estate

Real estate inspections are necessary when buying or selling a home. When it comes to real estate inspections, many people just rely on their general home inspector to check for termites. But, this can be a costly mistake. Having a professional termite inspection for your new home is worth the peace of mind, knowing that this important job is done well, and done right.


If a termite problem is detected, our licensed professionals will take action to address these pests. Treatment of termites requires patience and persistence, so expect a few visits.


Finally, post-treatment termite re-inspections occur after the treatment plan has been completed to be sure that the threat was fully eliminated.

What a Professional Termite Inspector Can Do For You

Termite inspectors don’t just check for termites, they dig into the wettest, smallest crawlspaces of the home to check for termites and other wood-destroying insects (such as carpenter ants, powder post beetles, and carpenter bees). Our inspectors check utility rooms, access panels, foundations, and more. Also, if termites are found, the professional termite inspector will be able to develop a plan to treat and repair the structure.

Conditions That Raise Your Risk of a Termite Problem

Knowing what to look for concerning termites isn’t as cut and dry as many may believe. Professional termite inspectors, like we have at Suburban Exterminating, know to look for evidence of insects, previous treatment, damage, and conducive conditions (conditions that make your property inviting to termites). These conditions include:

  • Wood-Soil Contact
  • Pools of Water
  • Plumbing Leaks
  • Faulty Rain Gutters
  • Rain Water Pooling Against the Building
