TERMITE DAMAGE

For most of us, our homes are the largest investment we make in our lives. Finding out that your home has termites or termite damage can be an expensive surprise.


There are more than 2,000 species of termites and only about 70 species are frequent your property enough to be called pests. The most damaging are roughly 20 species we call “subterranean” termites because of their nesting and foraging habits. One of the species is native to North Carolina, the Eastern Subterranean Termite. Also known as Reticulitermes flavipes, these termites are wood destroying insects and are classified as pests. They feed on cellulose material such as the structural wood in buildings and homes which can be detrimental to your investment.

If undetected termite damage can become extensive and expensive. Over 2 million homes require termite treatment each year and more than 600,000 U.S. homes suffer termite damage totaling over $2.5 billion annually. That is more damage that is caused by all fires, storms, and earthquakes combined. Initial termite treatment and annual inspection is a low-cost preemptive action towards preventing infestation.
