Termite Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

I think I have termites… contact us today to schedule your inspection.

What is a termite swarm? What should I look for if I think I have termites?
The three most commons signs that you have termite are droppings, mud tubes and swarmers. Drywood termite droppings look like a little pile of saw dust. Subterranean termites create exploratory mud tubes that come up from the ground or come out of the ceiling usually. Both drywood termites and subterranean termites swarm on warm days, after rainfall. They have long wings and if they’re in your house, they’ll usually end up in window sills as they are heading for the light. Contact us today to schedule your inspection.

How much is a termite inspection?
Pricing varies by location, but our clients are entitled to one free inspection per year, escrow inspections excluded. Contact us today to schedule your inspection.

Will I have to tent my house to get rid of termites?
Not necessarily. Fumigation or tenting, is the primary recommendation for drywood termites, but it won’t eliminate an infestation of subterranean termites. Furthermore, we have secondary, alternative treatments for drywood termites.

Is Dewey in compliance with the “Important Transparency in Coverage and Machine Readable File Information”? 

Transparency in Coverage (TIC) regulations require health insurers and group health plans to post machine readable files (MRFs) that contain the negotiated rates for in-network providers and allowed amounts derived from historical claims for out-of-network providers and make those files publicly available.   Below is the link that complies with group health plan posting requirement.


A machine-readable file is defined as a digital representation of data or information in a file that can be imported or read by a computer system for further processing without human intervention, while ensuring no semantic meaning is lost. These files are in the CMS defined format (JSON) and are not meant for a member-friendly search of rates, benefits, or cost sharing.
