When termites come to feed on your property, there is a good chance you're not going to know it. The most destructive termites in the United States, the subterranean termite, can tunnel over 250 yards in search of food, and then come up from the ground underneath your home. If you're fortunate, you have a complete foundation under your home and, those wood eating bugs will have to come up somewhere alongside your exterior walls. But, even if termites have to climb up the side of your foundation, they are likely to do this in shaded, moist locations, such as under a deck, porch, patio, or other structure, which can be easy to miss. The worst part is, subterranean termites will feed silently within the wood of your home, and this could give them enough time to do a significant amount of damage.
Termite damage is the kind of damage no homeowner should ever have to face. It is often intrusive and hard to track. When these insects feed inside support beams, and the studs in support walls, and you don't know it, it can cause the framework of your home to bend and warp over time. This will lead to bulging walls, dipping ceilings, sinking floors, and worse. Homes have been completely totaled by these insects. And each year they cost U.S. property owners billions of dollars in repair costs.
So, how do you stop a wood-destroying pest that comes up from the ground and feeds silently inside the wood of your home? While there are a few things you can do, like correcting areas of moisture around your perimeter, making sure you have a 2-foot barrier between your mulch and the walls of your property, moving wood piles 20 feet from your walls, and fixing any area where the wood of your home touches the soil, complete protection requires the assistance of an educated termite control specialist. When it comes to termites, you're going to want to get it right the first time. There is nothing quite like the horror of finding out that termites have been feeding on your equity for years.
At Arrow Pest Control, we trust Termidor, the #1 termite control product in the United States. With Termidor, we can create a barrier around your property that is undetectable and unavoidable for termite workers. When they pass through this barrier, they pick the product up and share it with the other termites in their colony. Slowly, it works its way back to the nests, and back to the queen. When the queen dies, the colony dies. And it does this while your sleeping and in between visits from your termite control technician. It is 24-hour protection, 365 days a year.
This termite control plan comes with a one-year renewable warranty against re-infestation. When you take advantage of this warranty, your home will maintain a strong protected defense against termites, and greatly reduce your chances of getting termite damage. You'll get yearly inspection from an educated termite control technician who will make sure your barrier is doing its job and offer any necessary treatments if signs of termites are seen. And those treatments aren't going to cost you an arm and a leg. When you have an ongoing renewal, you don't have to pay a large amount to be treated again.
