There are numerous reasons why new home buyers should get a pest inspection prior to signing the dotted line. Termites are not just creepy intruders in your home. They can cause thousands of dollars in damages, and even take down entire homes if given enough time to grow their colonies. The largest termite colony on record had over 3 million members. That’s a lot of wood chomping insects chewing away at your home’s infrastructure!
There are ways to prevent termite damage – namely, you need to catch them before they get out of control. Our pest inspections are thorough, and our inspector knows exactly what to look for in order to track down new or elusive termite colonies. Getting rid of termites before they have time to grow out of control is the first step to protecting your home from substantial damage. Additionally, if your home shows no signs of termites or other destructive insects, then you can take measures to prevent them from setting up shop in the first place. Since preventatives are not generally effective when used on an existing colony, it is best to know for sure what you’re dealing with.
