Termites produce more than $5 billion in damages every year – which is not covered by home-owners insurance. The southeast is ground zero for this termite activity. Termites favor the mild weather and soil conditions that are found in Tennessee. Due to this favorable climate termites are extremely widespread in this area. Termites are able to forage over 100 feet from their colony, which can be bad news if your neighbor has found them. Subterranean termites are the damage causing termites in this area. Unlike other termite species, they live entirely underground only coming up to infest wood. Unfortunately this allows them to avoid detection, which is why professional inspections are so important. Luckily, termite damage is 100% preventable and repairable.
Our approach to termite management is individualized for each home. Our process starts with a thorough inspection of your home for all wood destroying insects. We present our potential customers with a detailed report on our inspection, and a customized treatment plan based on the results of the inspection. The structure of your home and its proximity to a water source or pool all impact the treatment method we use to protect your home.
We offer liquid termiticide treatments with Termidor (the world leader in termiticides), that provide your home with continuous protection around its perimeter. Termidor Perimeter Plus treatments will effectively eliminate existing termite colonies near your home and prevent future infestations. Once treated, most homes will have a fully transferable $250,000 guarantee for up to 15 years against new subterranean termite damage. Inspection is required to see if home qualifies for guarantee. We also offer bait stations that are installed around the property. These stations give you a real time perspective of termite activity in the area. We monitor these stations on a quarterly basis, giving you the protection your home needs. All of our termite services come with 10 year to lifetime transferrable guarantee for ease of mind.
