The era of Covid has been thrust upon us, and for at least the time being, seems to be forefront on everyone’s mind. It has also led to people spending increasing amounts of time at home, riding out the pandemic until the coast is clear. That’s why it’s so important to make sure that your home is safe, secure, and structurally sound. But did you know that termites cause more property damage annually than fires, floods, and other natural disasters combined? It’s true!

Our team at The Bug Man has been helping homes and businesses in Arkansas stay pest free since 1976, and we offer the full range of pest control services and humane wildlife removal services. We also offer an annual termite inspection, which will help you enjoy the peace of mind that comes from knowing that your home will be free from termites. Termite activity is hard to spot unless you really know what you’re looking for, but once you schedule your termite inspection, one of our pest control specialists will be there right away to take a look.

Termites are fondest of moist, unpainted wood, and typically gain access to your home by building mud tubes.” Mud tubes are composed of frass (droppings) and saliva, and are built on the sides of your home. These tubes provide termites the moisture and transportation system that they need to gain access to your home, and are the first sign of an infestation. You might also occasionally hear a hollow sound when tapping on structural wood, but you won’t typically find sawdust. In fact by the time you see any visible damage, it’s usually too late.

Termite control requires a proactive approach involving trained professionals, and you won’t find a more experienced or customer focused team. We take a lot of pride in our repeat business, and our commitment to our clients is second to none!
