Protect Your Investment
Termites are serious business. If left untreated, a colony of subterranean termites can quite literally eat your home from underneath you. In fact, according to the National Pest Management Association’s most recent figures, every year, termite damages cost homeowners more than fires and floods combined. Extermco Pest Control can treat your home or business against termites and even put the structure under a guarantee bond, ensuring your investment is safe for years to come.

Facts about termites
Termites are often mistaken for flying ants
You probably don’t have flying ants; you have termites. Called “termite swarmers,” these flying termites are often mistaken for flying ants and indicate a mature termite colony at least 5 years old.
They will travel
A termite will search for food up to 300 feet away from its colony. This is equivalent to a person walking over 10 miles round-trip to get lunch.
Treated wood is food, too
The fact that wood and lumber used in construction has been treated does not mean termites won’t eat it. In fact, termites will eat any type of treated wood and can even eat through some drywall.
Your Home Deserves Extermco
Extermco will take great care to keep your home or business termite free. Our termite control service is time-tested.
The first step to combat termites is a thorough termite inspection by an Extermco professional. Warped or “wavy” drywall or flooring, termite swarmers, or mud tubes are just a few of the signs of a termite infestation.
After inspection, Extermco will create a termite treatment plan specific to your home. Each home’s foundation is unique, as is every termite colony.
An Extermco professional will treat your home, eliminating termites and preventing future costly termite damages. This may include directly treating the soil in and around your home or drilling into the structure’s foundation and injecting termiticides.
Perhaps most importantly, an Extermco professional will continue to inspect your home every year, giving you peace of mind. Termite treatments from Extermco come with a guarantee bond, renewable for as long as you own your home.
