A: The best way to find out is to call us for an inspection. You can also identify termite infestation by looking for damaged wood or termite droppings which can look with small round pellets. There may also be trails of mud tubes traveling up from the ground which may be evidence of subterranean termites.
Q: If my home has termites, do I need a fumigation?
A: You do not always need a fumigation, however it is up to a licensed field representative or operator to make that determination. You can treat locally as a secondary substandard option.
Q: What if I don't want to fumigate?
A: Unless you need a certification during the sale of your home, a secondary substandard option of locally treating may be available.
Q: How much does a fumigation cost?
A: Fumigation cost is based off of the cubic footage of the structure being covered. An inspector can come to your property and measure the structure(s) being covered and provide you with a quote.
Q: How often should my home be checked for termites?
A: We suggest inspections be done annually. Our control service will provide an annual inspection to identify any infestations that may occur in your home. Local treatments are included in annual control service.
Q: How much damage can termites really cause?
A: Termites can destroy your house from the inside out. Combined with fungus and dryrot, termites can cause major structural damage to your home, possibly lowering your property value.
