Whether you need a termite inspection and report because you are buying or selling your home or property and want to make sure there are no termites silently eating the structure or you suspect you have termites, we are here to help.
Termites love wood! Subterranean termites prefer to eat slash pine, loblolly pine, sugar maple, and the soft layers of Springwood.
As termites are eating their way through wood, they create tunnels and passages throughout.
Subterranean termites create mud tunnels from the wood they have eaten through. These tunnels protect them while they travel from their nest to food sources.
Termite colonies can contain 60,000 to 1 million termites! Winged termites, like the ones pictured here, are called swarmers which fly out of the nest to mate.
A focused approach on termite inspections in Utah
Termites leave behind trails of destruction of where they have been. Thorn professionals are trained to be keen observers in inspections to find these clues.Schedule Free Consultation
Termite inspections in Utah require an inspector to audit both indoors and out, all around the foundation of a building, and inside the basements and crawl spaces. Thorn’s termite inspectors will look for termite activity on the structure of the home or building, and provide a detailed report to present the findings of the audit.
Thorn professionals take pride in their work and therefore they take inspections very seriously. Asking ourselves the right questions helps us get in the mindset of a thorough inspection:
Where are they coming from?
How did they get in?
Where is their food source?
Once we’ve gained the answers to these questions we will create a treatment plan. We will look at every possible angle of the problem to ensure treatment is effective.
When inspecting for termites we look for mud tunnels or mud tubes. Subterranean termites are known for making this kind of damage in wood. Mud tunnels are a good indication of an active termite infestation.
A thorough inspection of the exterior of the building is a must when dealing with termites. We will look for possible entry points into the structure and for any activity from the termites. An important part of the exterior inspection is checking the foundation for activity as well.
After the inspection (in about 24-48 hrs) you will receive a detailed inspection report. The inspector will fill out an official form called NPMA-33 from the National Pest Management Association. The report will detail whether there is no evidence, past evidence, or present evidence of termite damage. This report will also include corrective actions that are recommended by the inspector.
"Thorn is the company I have called when I need a job to get done right. Many pest control companies I have used haven’t exhibited the same expertise and knowledge that Thorn has. It’s great to have a company that I know can take care of anything that might arise."
"We love Bayron! He does such a great job every time and explains things when I have questions. All the professionals who come are super friendly and helpful and they do their job. I tend to have questions and Bayron is helpful and knowledgeable."

The termite inspection process is thorough. The highly-trained Thorn pest control experts who perform termite inspections review the entire structure, including the basement or crawl space, to check for signs of damage. We have a complete termite inspection checklist to follow, and at the conclusion of the inspection, we’ll deliver a written report of our findings.
The most important thing to ask is whether your termite inspector is licensed and insured to be working on your commercial property or residence. You will want to ask for referrals, too, so past clients can speak to their experience and knowledge.
Thorn professionals are all both licensed and insured to operate in the state of Utah. In addition, we have a unique understanding of both termite biology and construction, allowing us to provide a thorough inspection for both established businesses as well as homeowners looking to buy or sell a house.
Our termite control professionals will then use this knowledge to recommend the best treatment methods, and will also make critical recommendations to repair damage and prevent future infestations.
Termite inspections aren’t uncommon in Utah and other areas where subterranean and dry wood termites reign. Inspections commonly take place when a home is going to be bought or sold, or when there’s evidence of potential damage.
It’s best to have a termite inspection every few years, especially if you live in an area where you know they’re rampant, or when other homeowners or business owners in your community are experiencing issues. If you can spot damage early, you’re likely to save yourself thousands of dollars in repair costs.
