How many times have you woken up in a cold sweat worried that your house, the floor, four walls, and roof around you, has come tumbling down? This scary nightmare can become your worst reality if you have a termite infestation! Devouring the wood skeletal of your home from the inside out, these costly pests will wreak havoc on your life.
Do not let their diminutive size fool you, the National Pest Management Association has estimated that termites are responsible for over five billion dollars worth of property damage each year in America. 2012 estimates show that minimal structural damage to your home caused by termites cost over 300 dollars to repair – and that’s if you catch it early! The real nightmare comes when you discover that basic homeowner’s insurance doesn’t even cover any damage related to a termite infestation.
Silent and Deadly
Termites are silent destroyers of your home. Often times a colony has already grown out of control by the time you discover the pests. They infest the framework of your home, devouring everything in sight while weakening the house infrastructure to unstable, and sometimes unlivable, conditions.
