Call The Bug Man for Your Annual Termite Inspection!
Most homeowners look at eight or more homes before they make an offer, for very good reason. Your home is one of the most important investments you can make, and you want a place that will be comfortable for decades! Whether you purchase a newly constructed home in an up-and-coming area or a “fixer-upper” in a fashionable neighborhood, there are millions of termites out there who would love nothing more than to feast on all that tasty structural wood. That’s where our team of experts at The Bug Man comes in!
Expensive home repairs are inevitable, and they typically come at inconvenient times. Termites are the leading cause of home structural damage, and they’re responsible for more damage each year than fires, floods, and tornadoes combined! But our trained technicians will inspect your home from top to bottom for evidence of termite activity, and we’ll make specific recommendations to help keep your home pest free. Your termite contract is effective all year long, and your annual inspection typically takes less than an hour.
As the homeowner, you’ll be the first line of defense. Be sure to keep your lawn mowed and your hedges trimmed, and prune back any tree branches that come into direct contact with your roof. You should also routinely inspect your home’s exterior for water damage and wood rot. Replace any damaged wood right away, and paint or seal the new wood after installation to discourage future termite activity.
ermite activity is very difficult for homeowners to spot, which is why it’s essential to schedule a professional inspection. Our technicians will look for evidence of activity throughout your home, including your home’s exterior, garage, attic, and crawl space. Termites love moist, unpainted wood, and we’ll look for moisture buildup or other potential trouble spots. They often build mud tubes” from saliva and frass (droppings) as a source of transportation and nutrients. You might also discover piles of wings that look like fish scales, warped wood, or structural wood that makes a hollow sound when tapped. Your annual inspection includes year-round coverage, and you can contact us any time you suspect that you have termite activity in your home.
