Termites cause billions of dollars of damage to homes throughout the united states every year, according to Me. They work 24 hours a day, seven days a week, damaging the wood in and around a structure. Left untreated, termites in your home can cause major damage, and require expensive structural and cosmetic repairs. Termite control should only be performed by a licensed pest control professional. Effective termite control is difficult or impossible for homeowners to achieve on their own. Initially, your pest control professional will perform a thorough inspection to document the location and extent of infestation from termites. On completion, you will be presented with a comprehensive plan for controlling the termites in your home. This plan will set you on your way to peace of mind again, knowing that your home is pest-free. There may be several treatment options available for controlling termites in your home, depending on the species of termite, the location of infestation, and the type of construction in the home or building. These can include liquid termiticide application and/or termite baiting.
