Termite pest control is one of the most important considerations for homeowners, but many people don’t think about this issue after the initial inspection during the real estate transaction. That is, they don’t think about it until they are struck with a termite infestation of a critical level. There is no good reason for this, though, when Black Night Termite & Pest Control offers termite control inspections free of charge for all homeowners, and termite inspections for real estate transactions for only $85. That initial inspection when buying a home may be required, but with free inspections for homeowners and low-cost ongoing preventative services, why not make it a regular thing? Once you consider the facts it should be clear why this isn’t such a bad idea.
The Facts about Termites
If you think termites aren’t that big of a deal, or that it won’t affect you, think again. Termites are responsible for more than $2 billion in damage to homes and other structures each year – that’s more damage than windstorms and fire combined! This may come as a surprise; termites are capable of doing more damage than most people realize. They don’t only chew through wood, which most people know them for. Termites can also chew through linoleum, vinyl, and cables under the ground and underneath your house. This little problem can quickly lead to thousands of dollars in damage.
Types of Termites to Watch Out For
In typical American cities like the Southern California communities of Temecula and Murrieta, subterranean and drywood termites are the main types of termites for homeowners to be concerned about. Dampwood termites are also found throughout the U.S. Subterranean termites live underground and require soil moisture, dampwood termites require moisture sources or prefer damp wood, and drywood termites can thrive without soil or water sources.
