Termites are arguably the most serious pest threat that you can face as a homeowner. The destructive force of a termite invasion is a very real concern. You may have insurance on your home against a fire, and if a fire starts in your home, there will be obvious, visual signs that it is happening. Termites, however, do their damage from within. The pests are tiny, so unless you’re actively looking for them, you’re not likely to notice them. Once inside your home, termites can eat away at the very infrastructure of your property and leave you with thousands of dollars of damages. A termite control agreement can help you protect against termites.
Termite Control Agreements Are Standing Treatment Policies
Many pest control providers have available contracts for termite control. These termite control agreements offer a number of benefits to homeowners. First, many of these agreements cover active treatment. If you ever have a termite issue, your pest control provider will apply local treatment to get rid of the bugs. Spraying for termites around the property can kill the bugs before they work their way into your home. Spotting an infestation like this early on can reduce the potential damage done to your home, making it a priority.
Termite Control Agreements Typically Include Inspections and Preventive Treatment as Well
Treating termites quickly is advantageous, but preventing them from getting into your home altogether is the best case scenario. That’s why termite control agreements typically include a yearly inspection as well. When you have a pest control expert evaluate your home, they can check for potential entry points and signs that termites may be present. Mud tubes near the exterior of your home and small piles of frass or wings may be signs that termites are in the area. Inside, pinholes in drywall, and hollow-sounding wood are often giveaways that termites are inside.
Preventive Home Care Is Always More Cost-Effective
If you haven’t had a termite issue in the past, you may be reluctant to sign up for a yearly treatment agreement. However, it’s important to consider preventive care for your home. Preventive care is always more cost-effective than dealing with an issue once it arises. Termite damage can be incredibly costly and frustrating. Staying in front of this issue — or any pest control issue related to your home for that matter — is going to save you money and hassle in the long run.
