Fall is an excellent time for termite inspections. Termites disperse in the spring as a new queen takes flight and establishes a new termite colony. By Fall, the colony is growing, and it is easier to detect their presence before they cause too much damage.
Residential Termite Control and Inspection
Annually across the US, termites cause a collective $2 billion in damages to homes. One of the problems with termites is that they nest in places where there is little visibility. That is usually under the house where it remains cold, moist, and dark. Once they establish a colony, it goes unnoticed until there is a termite inspection or the homeowners begin to notice issues with the structure of the house. Maybe it is that windows become harder to open, or that the porch sags a bit. The damage happens a little at a time and around three years. By the fifth year, you are looking at significant reconstruction as the building is losing structural integrity.
We offer affordable termite inspections, and we also inspect for other wood damaging organisms too.
Commercial Termite Control and Inspection
Termites are by no means solely the problem of homeowners. They happily eat commercial buildings too. We work with many businesses to detect and remove termites. The issues remain the same for commercial properties as they do for residential properties. The termites remain unnoticed until the damage is noticeable. By that time, the damage to the building is significant. Again, the best way to avoid larger repair bills caused by termite damage is an annual termite inspection.
