When it comes to detecting termites and other pests in your northern Virginia home or business, dogs have a definite advantage over humans. Their sniffing power enables them to locate pests under flooring, behind walls and other places that an exterminator might miss. At ProTech Termite & Pest Control, we are pleased to be the first company in the area to use dogs to find unwanted pests on our customers’ property.
Roxy and Marlowe have undergone extensive training from the same person who trains dogs to sniff out drugs for the Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI). Thanks to the incredible pest detection skills of Roxy and Marlowe, ProTech Termite & Pest Control offers a 100 percent guarantee to all customers.
Termite Damage in Northern Virginia
Termites eat wood to survive, which means they can do extensive damage to the structure of your residential or commercial property without you even realizing it. Often times people don’t know they have a termite issue until they try to sell their property and it can’t pass a termite inspection. Unfortunately, most homeowner’s insurance policies do not cover damage caused by termites. This is in spite of the fact that termites cause damage in excess of one billion dollars to homes and businesses in the United States every year.
Another mistake that people make is confusing termites with ants and assuming they are harmless. After our dogs and human exterminators have identified termites on your property, we teach you how to do the same. This enables you to be proactive with your treatment approach rather than reactive. We encourage you to schedule regular termite inspections, whether you plan to put your property up for sale or not.
