How much damage do termites cause?
The truth is there are two kinds of homes: those that have had termites and those that will get them. Termites work 24 hours/7 days a week at damaging the wood in and around a structure. Believe it or not, termites cause $5 billion in damage each year.
How much does a termite treatment cost?
Termite treatments can range in price, depending on where you live, the construction of your home, severity of the infestation, and the type of treatment recommended. Please contact Hilton Head Exterminators today and we will provide you with a FREE home inspection and evaluation.
How quickly can termites infest my home and how long will termite treatment last after completion?
Subterranean termites may infest a home or any structure during the early stages of construction, especially if the structure has not been properly treated! Our termite treatment options are designed to act as a barrier and keep termites away from your home for long periods of time. However, many things can disturb the barrier such as landscaping, excessive rainfall, erosion of soil or leaky pipes. If the barrier is breached, termites may enter your home without detection. Every homeowner should keep a current and active subterranean termite warranty in effect for the safety of their home.
What can I do around my home to keep termites away?
There are a few major things to keep in mind. First, make sure to eliminate any sources of standing water and moisture. Water leaks attract termites to your home. Second, don’t stack firewood or lumber near your house. Make sure to inspect the wood for insects before bringing it into the house. Third, keep shrubbery and tree limbs cut back from the house. Fourth, always seal small cracks and openings along the foundation, window screens and doors. Finally, make sure to inspect your foundation and perimeter of the house for rotting wood, mud tubes or visible termites.
