Termite Warranty

Why are Termite Warranties Vital?

According to the National Pest Management Association, termites alone cause over $5 billion in property damage annually.

Subterranean termites live in colonies underground. They feed on dead trees and plants. In this way, termites play a vital role in the ecosystem. Houses and other structures draw termites when wooden portions of the structure connect with the ground. Termites cause more damage to structures than fires and floods combined.

Prevent your home from becoming a tasty termite treat by following a few simple steps. Avoid water accumulation around the foundation of your home with proper drainage and clean, functioning gutters. Make sure the crawlspace is well ventilated to avoid humidity. Store firewood at least 20 feet away from the house and ensure that no wooden components of the house come in contact with the soil.

Give yourself peace of mind and protect your home and wallet with our Termite Warranty.

Termite infestations can cost a pretty penny, the cost to treat the infestation and cost of repair to termite damage can add up to a high cost. With our Warranty, we will provide an annual inspection to ensure your home is safe. If an infestation does occur, we will do the required treatment at no extra cost to you. Our warranty also covers the cost to repair any damage the termites have caused.

Service Plans

Residential Service Plan

Regardless of the time of year, undesirable pests are surrounding your home, seeking entrance whenever and wherever they have a chance.

Our recurring services are like a shield for your home. Imagine the perimeter of your home encircled with a band of protection, a barrier against unwanted pests. However, the products we use will naturally wear off over time. This is why we return on a regularly scheduled routine to maintain that protection.

What we do

We begin with an initial treatment, flushing out and eliminating any existing pest populations. Because many pest have differing life cycles, you may still notice some occasional pest activity. It is important to break the egg cycle of the pests or they will just keep coming. That is our focus during the first few visits. Of course, we do want to know if you’re noticing an abundance of activity between the regular visits. Once the pest population has been eliminated the following services work to keep the pests from returning. Each new season brings new pests so our technicians are always diligently on the look out for new threats.

Why it works

We use a proven combination of products that each work in their own way to eliminate pest problems. Some products target several different varieties of pests, while others focus on specific pests. A few work immediately, but many of the products we use are designed to work over a period of time. Let’s use ants as an example to explain why.

A line of ants has arrived on your counter top. Your first instinct is to kill them all. But then more arrive. You’ll kill those too, and the next group. The ants figure it out and show up on a different counter instead. The colony is still there and still needs food. Our approach is to place a gel where the ants are looking for food. The ants will gather this “food” and take it back to the colony to share. This eliminates the entire colony instead of just the foragers.

Some pests, like fleas and roaches, require a more aggressive approach. The process of eradicating spiders begins by doing away with their food source. No matter which pest you’re facing, our team of skilled technicians can get the job done.

Mosquito Management

Enjoy time outdoors this summer with the help of our Mosquito Management Services

Mosquitoes are irritating and cause discomfort. However, they can also spread harmful diseases.

Many of us will only ever experience mild to moderate skin irritation from a mosquito bite. However, according to the American Mosquito Control Association, over one million people worldwide die from mosquito-borne diseases every year. And the CDC states ” For most viruses spread by mosquitoes, no vaccines or medicines are available “.

Why take that chance? There are steps you can take to help reduce the mosquito population in your own backyard. Since most mosquitoes lay their eggs on the surface of fresh or stagnant water, the first step is to eliminate any potential breeding grounds. This may seem like common sense but many people often unknowingly invite this dangerous pest into their yards.

Puddles, toys, even a bottle cap can provide plenty of water to attract mosquitoes

Take a thorough look around your property as part of your regular lawn maintenance. Look for items that could be collecting water. Resolve any issues you might find.

  • Gutters – Leaves and other debris gather in gutters. Clogged gutters attract mosquitoes as well as many other types of pests.
  • Leaky pipes – Check for leaks. Also check that spigots are fully shut off after use.
  • Flowerpots – Make sure flower pots are draining properly. Any unused pots should be properly stored.
  • Trashcans – Trashcan lids should be properly fitted. A loose lid will allow water to gather. It will also draw other unwanted pests.
  • Birdbaths and other water features – Keep water fresh. Dump out and refill birdbaths often. Ponds can be stocked with fish, which will eat mosquito larvae. Water features with running water won’t attract mosquitos, but check to make sure they are working properly.
  • Baby pools- Drain small pools and turn upside down when not in use. Don’t leave pools filled with water for long periods of time.
  • Other places water can gather include grill covers, wheel barrows, tire swings and toys.

Protect your family. Your preventative measures along with our Mosquito Management Services will reduce the chances of you or your loved ones getting an illness or disease from a mosquito bite.

Termites

Termites are truly capable of destroying your home!

Crawlspaces or basements

Damp. Dark. Undisturbed. Crawlspaces and basements can provide the perfect climate for a termite colony to thrive. Because these areas are not often visited problems can occur without the homeowner being aware.

Garages and sheds

Garages and sheds provide easy access and multitudes of hiding spaces for all types of pests. Most garages and sheds are not temperature controlled and are vulnerable to the damp conditions that termites love. Sheds that are not placed on a concrete slab are also likely to have wood to soil contact which will draw termites.

Exterior

Wooden decks draw termites when the wooden posts connect directly to the soil. Many homeowners use mulch in flower beds surrounding their homes. This may look nice but also draws termites to your home. Cedar mulch, recycled rubber and stones are safer options for your flower beds and gardens.

A termite inspection is a process of visually inspecting the interior and exterior of the home and accessible spaces including basements, attics, and crawl spaces.

Inspections should be done regularly to catch an infestation early before much damage is done. Termite inspections are required when selling or refinancing your home.
