Hidden Damage Inside
Determining how long a termite colony has been active in a structure is a very difficult, there are numerous variables. And does it really matter, getting ride of those cellulose eating fellows is job one. Most colonies take more than 5 years to grow large enough to cause damage but any damage too your home no matter how little is too much. Some recent statistics have shown that termites and similar pests cause $30 billion in damage to structures and crops per year. As a homeowner you do not want to be in that statistic. An average homeowner who has a termite infestation spends an average of $3,000 in repair costs.
HOW MUCH DAMAGE DO TERMITES CAUSE?????
That is almost like repeating "how much wood, could a, Wood Chuck, chuck............" Once again, many variables. First off, what specie are we speaking of, Drywood, Dampwood or Subterrananean. And after that determination, we still have different types again. The Formosan of the subterranean termite specie is quite voracious and the colonies can be enormous. Their ability to create damage is astounding. Some things that do increase a colonies ability to cause damage are, type of termite, size of colony, type of wood, climatic temperatures and moisture. Damage can be very simple, a baseboard or door frame. The unseen damage in bathrooms or trusses or areas just not in normal view can cost homeowners thousands to repair. The estimated cost of repair for termite damage in the U.S. exceeds 5 billion per year. And since we live Florida all the favorable conditions listed before are number in this state
Bottom line we can show numbers and horror stories all day. The question is, where do you go for treatment. Well, if your reading this, you have made the first step. We use the best chemicals on the market to control Subterranean termite infestation, Termidor. We also offer repair and re-treatment agreements for a period of up to 10 years with a very reasonable annual renewal.
A little bit about the product Termidor, the active ingredient is Fipronil. Fipronil is a broad-spectrum insecticide that disrupts the insects central nervous system. Termidor eliminates termites by both ingestion and contact, and is lethal to termites simply through contact with other Termidor-tainted individuals. Termidor is a non-repellent - undetectable to termites - the pests freely forage through treated areas, unknowingly ingesting, picking up and transferring Termidor throughout the population. It's the product's unique "Transfer Effect," allowing Termidor to achieve 100% control of termite populations.
