No pest equals the common termite for its ability to inflict costly damage to buildings and other structures. It is for this reason that we strongly recommend our business customers schedule professional termite inspections on a yearly basis. Our trained staff will carry out a thorough inspection of your property, looking for evidence of termites, and damage caused by termite activity, such as:
- Hollow sounding wood.
- Crumbling wood.
- Aboveground mud tubes that the termites use to avoid detection and exposure.
Termites have existed for more than 250-million years, and share a common ancestor with mantises and cockroaches. Like ants, termites also live in colonies organised according to a complex social structure. Under ideal circumstances, termites are not a pest, as they assist with the decomposition of dead trees. But human development has limited termites access to dead trees, while supplying them with a new source of food: the wood used in and around countless buildings.
Business are forced to spend millions of dollars each year to prevent and manage termite infestations, but early detection and treatment remains your best approach to avoiding any significant financial impact on your business; so call us today!
