Termite Inspection/Control
 Termites eat wood, and can consequently cause great structural damage to your home if left unchecked. A typical homeowner's insurance policy does not cover destruction caused by termites, even though they cause over 1 billion dollars in damage to homes throughout the United States each year. Our inspection and treatment program can help you understand the threat of termites, and take the necessary steps to protect your home.

Termite Inspection
You can’t assume your home is termite-free just because you’ve never seen them – they only swarm once or twice a year, and you might miss it! We thoroughly inspect your home or business, looking for the tell-tale signs of termite infestation. Some of the things we look for are:

  Mud tubes built for traveling above ground

  Damaged or hollow-sounding wood

  Pinholes in drywall or wallpaper

  Small piles of sawdust

  Piles of small wings

  Other specific termite indicators

In addition, we offer Real Estate Wood Destroying Reports.

Termite Treatments
To control these unwanted pests, we provide an effective treatment plan, which may include:

   Exterior Protection - a continuous chemical barrier is created around the exterior of your home or building to keep termites from entering

   Direct Contact - as possible, we apply chemicals directly to the pests

   Insect Growth - we apply chemicals which duplicate the insect's natural hormones to disrupt their growth and development

Termite Facts
Subterranean termites are extremely destructive. First they build tunnels to wooden structures, and then they burrow into those structures to obtain food. Any wood or cellulose-containing material constitutes termite food, and given time to do so, they’ll eat until nothing is left but a shell. Termites avoid light and air, so they build their colonies where you’re not likely to stumble upon them.

Is it a termite or an ant?

On the off chance you do see them, remember that it’s easy to confuse termites with ants. Fortunately, there are features that distinguish them.
