It’s termite season! Yes, it’s that time of the year that you see little termite swarmers sticking to your arm as you mow the lawn. Those are those little black flying ant looking things, that when they land on you their wings can be blown off almost like a dandelion. This is the best time of the year to get your home inspected for termites. Swarm season for termites is the time of year that they are showing the most visible signs on your home. Therefore making it easier for your termite inspector to spot the active termites. So get you home inspected for termites, most companies offer a free inspection so whats there to lose?
Termite season is also a good time of year to think about considering termite protection. Termite protection is kind of like termite insurance and termite prevention wrapped up in one convenient package. For a small bi-annual fee Bug Head Pest control can monitor and protect your home from termites. Termites cause 5 billion dollars in damage each year in the United States alone. It’s not a bad idea to protect your home from that. And no, termites are not something your home owners insurance is going to cover.
Well, I own a pest control company myself so I really can’t write this part without being biased. So I can recommend to you on that is to pick a company that cared enough to take the time to earn themselves some good reviews from the customers themselves. Get about 3 different quotes too. Having prices to compare never hurts. Try to stay with a local company if you can. At least in my position they have more at stake per job than bigger companies. I know this daddy has mouths to feed and I take that pretty seriously.
