Stop Termite Damage Before It Starts

Termite control, inspection, detection & prevention.

Termites have lived on Earth for more than 250 million years. While termites can be helpful in breaking down rotting wood in the environment, these wood -destroying insects also can cause extensive damage

to homes. Sometimes called “silent destroyers,” termites may leave few signs of activity as they steadily consume wood and sheetrock paper in the walls, ceilings and floors of homes.

Experts estimate that termites damage more than 600,000 homes in the United States annually. In fact, termites cause more damage to U.S. homes each tornadoes, hurricanes, wind and hail storms combined.
Unlike weather-related damage, termite damage is not covered by homeowners insurance.

Each year, U.S. residents spend an estimated $5 billion to control termites and repair termite damage. According to the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), control methods and repairs for
damage caused by Formosan termites – the most destructive species of subterranean termite – account for more than $1 billion of this total.
