Our homes are our most valuable asset, and they’re the place where we live and create plenty of great memories with our families! Preventive maintenance is an important way to manage your long-term repair costs, and an annual termite inspection ensures that your home remains structurally sound for decades to come! Termites cause more structural damage each year than fires, floods, and tornadoes combined, but they’re difficult for homeowners to spot on their own. But they’re no match for our team of pest control experts at The Bug Man, and we’re always a phone call away when you’d like to schedule an annual termite inspection in Little Rock. We also offer service in other central Arkansas communities, including Benton, Conway, Hot Springs, Pine Bluff, and Searcy.

Our trained technicians will thoroughly inspect your home for evidence of termite activity and make specific recommendations if they see anything you can do on your own to keep your home pest-free. Your termite inspection typically takes less than an hour, and you’ll enjoy true peace of mind all year long. You can also do numerous things on your own to discourage termites and other pests from taking refuge in your home, beginning with keeping your lawn mowed and pruning any hedges or limbs that come into direct contact with your home or roofline. Be sure to also deal with drainage problems in your yard, particularly if you encounter standing water after heavy rainfall.

Another important thing you can do is inspect your roofline, eaves, soffits, and fascia boards for water damage and wood rot a few times a year, particularly during the rainy season. Termites are particularly fond of unpainted wood, so be sure to paint and seal the new wood as soon as you perform any needed repairs. Your termite contract is effective all year long, and you should call us immediately if you ever see “mud tubes” spiderwebbing along your exterior walls. Mud tubes are built out of saliva and frass (droppings), and termites use them for both transportation and as a source of nutrients.
