Pest and termite inspections are a key part to ensuring the health and longevity of your property. If you’ve noticed piles of wood shavings, termite wings, or even active termites in or near your home, chances are you have a termite infestation. Determining the full scope of a termite infestation can be difficult, as it’s often the case that the termites have been active for quite a while before being discovered. Termites are extremely elusive creatures, and if you do not have the expertise and innovative equipment to track their presence, you could find yourself surprised by how difficult it is to inspect for termites Annual termite inspections are the best way to prevent the frustration and cost of a termite problem.
Ehrlich Pest Control, formerly Connor’s has extensive experience with termites. We have all of the technology and resources available for providing thorough termite inspections to our Virginia neighbors.
Are annual termite inspections necessary?
Whether you live in a new building or an old house, all property owners should sign up for regular pest and termite inspections. Even if you are living in a brand new home, you could still be susceptible to termites. Ideally, all homeowners should get annual termite inspections. Older homes do tend to be more at risk, making it absolutely essential to not only inspect your home yourself on a regular basis but also get a professional’s opinion every single year. Because termites can go unnoticed for such a long time, having your property inspected regularly can let you rest assured that you don’t have an infestation growing right under your nose.

Our termite inspection technology
For thorough pest and termite inspections, it’s important to use a company equipped with top-of-the-line equipment. Some of the technology we use includes:
- Infrared scanners: Infrared, or IR, scanners allow pest control experts to look beyond the surface of structural materials. Infrared cameras create thermal images that allow us to see if water damage or termite damage has created weakened areas throughout your insulation, walls, or other structural areas.
- Fiber optic scopes: Fiber optic wall scopes allow us get a close look at the health of your walls. If our infrared scanners have shown signs that your walls—or any other materials —have been damaged, we can take a closer look.
- Moisture meters: These meters are used to measure the amount of moisture content in the walls, insulation, surrounding plumbing, and around windows, doors, and other entryways. When there are leaks, termites could have caused the leaks, or termites could be drawn to the moisture.
