Termites Do Over $1.5 Billion in Property Damage A Year Is Your Home Or Business At Risk?
While people worry about a fire or storm damaging their home or business, data reveals that damage caused by termites is far more likely. While not as sudden or violent, subterranean termites can eventually create a need for major structural repairs. By calling Slug A Bug you can be assured of a professional inspection, recommendations if termites are discovered and a treatment program to rid your property of these pests. Additionally, we offer a lifetime renewable warranty in the unlikely event that these pesky critters return.
What Attracts Termites to My Property?
Almost every structure is a potential home for termites, since what they need most is wood and moisture. Even when a property is stone or brick, wood can be found in the structural supports. Anything that comes into contact with the soil is a potential entry point for termites – including outdoor fences. Foundation cracks, plumbing/roofing leaks, faulty downspouts& gutters, ground sloping toward the foundation, insufficient ventilation, rigid foam insulation, firewood, wooden steps, decks, landscaping timbers: all can encourage termite colonization. Termites build mud tubes which they use as a highway between the ground and your home or business.
How Will Slug A Bug Control my termite problem?
First, we conduct a thorough inspection of your property. Our inspectors are licensed by the State of Florida. After a thorough evaluation of your property, we will recommend a treatment plan tailored to your situation, your structure’s construction, where it is situated and the degree of infestation.
At SLUG A BUG our professional technicians are trained in the latest treatment techniques and use the most up to date equipment and environmentally responsible materials, such as Termidor®, to solve your problem.
How the Materials Work to Protect Your Home or Business
After the material is applied, termites that contact it transfer it to every other termite, they in turn contact, in a unique process called the “Transfer Effect.” And because the materials are engineered to be slow-acting, termites have ample time to spread it throughout their entire termite population. This material eliminates the colony in 3 months or less – 2 to 6 times faster than the best bait systems. We also have baiting systems available as part of our Green-Earth environmental initiative.
Wood Destroying Insect Inspections for Real Estate Transactions
Each year, SLUG A BUG performs hundreds of these inspections, which are required before a home or building is sold or refinanced. We inspect for any visibly accessible sign of termites, wood borers, carpenter ants or carpenter bees that may be present in or around the structure. The inspection is conducted by one of our highly trained and skilled Credentialed Wood Destroying Insect Inspectors that are licensed by the State if Florida
