Termites are small insects, about the same size as ants, that feed on dead plant material and – unfortunately – the wood in your home! Americans spend about $5 billion ever year on termite treatments, and repairing the damage termites do. They infest all kinds of structures, particularly older homes, often entering through obscure places like crawlspaces and basements to devour any wood within your home’s structural framework. Newer construction is now treated for termites during building, but no home is ever entirely safe, and if your home was built more than 30 years ago, you need to be proactive about keeping it safe from these winged pests. Because it’s very difficult to recognize the signs of a termite infestation, the best thing to do is to call a professional to check out your home. Give us a call, we’ll be happy to come out and do a complimentary inspection of your property for you! At A-One Exterminators, we want to protect your home first, rather than have you deal with the damage after!
