Termite Extermination & Wood Destroying Insect Exterminators
Serving Illinois and Indiana
“Termites cause costly property damage to the tune of $5 billion a year, and what’s worse, the damage typically isn’t covered by homeowner’s insurance,” noted Missy Henriksen, vice president of public affairs for the NPMA. Termite destruction isn’t immediately noticeable, but once termite activity is detected, termite extermination from a professional pest provider is recommended.
Common Termites in Illinois & Indiana
The following termite species is found living in the Midwest:
Eastern Subterranean Termites are serious economic timber pests, costing homeowners and building owners as much as $5 billion annually.
Termite Infestation Signs
Some indications you may need a termite exterminator:
- Finding a temporary swarm of winged insects in your home or from the soil around your home.
- Any cracked or bubbling paint or frass (shaved wood particles created as they destroy wood).
- Wood that sounds hollow when tapped.
- Mud tubes (about the size of a pencil) on exterior walls, wooden beams, or in crawl spaces.
- Discarded wings from swarmers.
All of these signs indicate that termite removal by a licensed termite exterminator is necessary.

Professional Termite Inspections
Moisture-damaged homes, particularly those that have weathered ice, snow and rain during the winter, are prime termite targets. Once these pests enter the structure, they inflict continuous damage. The NPMA encourages consumers to obtain termite inspections or a wood-destroying organism (WDO) inspection during the home buying process, and every 1-3 years while living in the home. Termite inspectors are trained to recognize signs of current or past infestations. They will also look for any conditions in the home that may attract termites in the future.
Whether you’ve owned your home for 20 years or are new to homeownership, the NPMA offers the following termite-prevention tips:
- Keep basements, attics and crawl spaces well ventilated and dry.
- Repair leaking faucets and water pipes in the home, as well as AC units located outside.
- Repair roof corners, eaves, and rotted roof shingles.
- Replace weather-stripping and repair loose mortar around basement foundations and windows.
- Direct water away from structures through properly functioning downspouts, gutters, and splash blocks.
- Store firewood at least 20 feet away from homes and 5 inches off the ground.
- Avoid using wood timbers in landscaping, and keep wood mulch at least 15 inches from the foundation.
