Only a trained professional understands the intricacies of how a termite colony behaves. Using advanced termiticide, a skilled, professional applicator can effectively protect your housing investment for years to come.
Because termites need moisture and have a low tolerance to moving air currents and light, they live underground, attacking a home from below. A loose mortar joint, a minute space around a drain pipe, or a settlement crack in the basement is all they need to gain entry.
The experience of homeowners nationwide shows that no home, new or old, is safe from termites. By building mud tubes, termites can cross concrete, brick, cinder block, metal termite shields, pre-treated wood and non-repellent chemical barriers. Only a professionally applied repellent termite treatment will prevent termite entry.
Unfortunately, yes. When a colony swarms, the winged termites may be in the air for just a few minutes and you may not see them. Termites also eat wood from the inside out, making their activity detectable only by professional termite inspection.
The longer you delay treatment, the more damage termites can do. Repairs will become extensive, and more expensive. Generally speaking, the sooner you approve treatment, the better. Even if you have not seen evidence of termite activity or damage, it is important to have your home professionally inspected.
