Imagine this headline in your newspaper. You would be very concerned about a disaster that caused five billion dollars in losses. Or damage that in most years is five times the dollar amount of hurricanes and fires combined. This is a conservative estimate for the cost of controlling termites and repairing termite damage yearly in the United States.
The mild and wet winter that we have experienced has set the parameters for one of the largest termite swarms to ever be known in this region.
Wood-boring insect damage is not covered by homeowners’ insurance policies and infestations can often go undetected by homeowners who don’t inspect their property annually. Termites eat wood, flooring, sheetrock, wallpaper, plastics, paper products and fabric made of plant fibers, which can severely compromise the structural soundness of a home.
