What Goes Into a Termite Inspection
Doing a termite inspection is mandatory for real estate transactions. But don’t wait until you sell your home to find out if you have a problem. Termites are so common in New York and on Long Island that it is more a matter of “when,” not “if” when talking about a termite infestation. Make an appointment with Knockout Pest Control if you:
- Suspect you might have a termite problem in your home or business
- Want to prevent a termite infestation before it starts
- Plan to buy or sell property and need a termite inspection as condition of sale

Long Island Termite Inspections
We make the entire termite inspection process as effortless as we can for you. Your home or business represents a large investment. Once termites invade a building, they can cause expensive damage that threatens the integrity of the building. By the time you see evidence of termites, the damage they cause is probably extensive. Most of the destruction they cause is hidden. Prevention and early detection is paramount. Here is what to expect from a Knockout Pest Control termite inspection:
- Visual inspection of both interior and exterior, for any activity of wood-destroying insects.
- We will be inspecting evidence of the presence of termites including damage to wood, mud tubes, molted wings, termite droppings and exit holes.
- Identification of areas inside and outside the structure that could attract termite infestations, such as standing water, moisture around the foundation, wood mulch close to structures, tree branches overhanging structures, and any wood features of the structure that are touching or buried in the soil.
- Inspection of soil around foundations and structures, especially by common entry points.
- Inspections can be done in less than an hour, depending on the size of your structure and conditions.
