More than 2 million homes require termite treatment each year. Termites are a major problem for homeowners in Washington, D.C., Maryland and Northern Virginia. Some estimates are that 40 percent of homes sold in our area require some termite treatment. My Pest Pros provides critical termite inspections and treatments for homeowners and business in areas including Fairfax and Burke, to McLean, Great Falls, Leesburg or Bethesda, Potomac and Silver Spring among others. Termite damage can be expensive. Left untreated, termite infestations can cause structural problems and mounting costs for your home.
While homeowners insurance can help cover loses from floods, fires and falling tees, few plans provide coverage for termites. A licensed, experienced and qualified pest control technician is your best protection against termite damage. Especially in the damp, humid conditions and soil we have in the Washington, D.C. metro region, annual termite inspections can help provide peace of mind and catch damage early. Early detection of termites can stem damage, losses and help reduce treatment costs.
Termites and their wood-destroying activity often go undetected because they are hidden behind walls, floors, siding, shutters or other parts of the home. Signs of termite activity include holes in exposed wood, mud tunnels and warped floors.
Finding out your home has termites can be scary. You typically can’t see them, you can’t hear them and frequently only a trained inspector can find signs of an infestation. Do-it-yourself treatments for the control of termites are virtually impossible. Specialized equipment is used and only experts have the necessary knowledge for effective control. A trained termite control specialist can provide protection from termite infestation.
You should have termite damage treated and repaired immediately so it does not spread. Treating damaged wood and eradicating termites requires use of specialized EPA-approved products and extensive training, so it best left to trained professional pest control experts.
