Stopping Damaging Termites From Eating You Out Of Your Southern Maryland Home
Termites are alive and well in Maryland, and they may be much closer to your Waldorf home than you think. No house is immune from a termite infestation, but many homeowners are completely unaware when termites find their way into their house and begin causing damage. Termites primarily swarm from the middle of March through June, and their eggs are rarely seen by the naked eye. Since they are small and they aren't pests that make a big, noisy entrance, being proactive against them is important if you want to avoid the costly problems that they cause.
If these wood-destroying pests find their way onto your property and into your house, they will slowly eat tunnels through any wooden structure they can find. While a slow process at first, termite colonies can grow to hundreds of thousands of members. That is a lot of little bugs eating away at your house! Over time, the wooden structures can become so riddled with holes and tunnels that they become weak and your home becomes an unsafe place to live; this causes serious and expensive damage.
Our Termite Control Offerings
When we arrive at your house, we come ready to perform a thorough inspection from top to bottom. Starting in the attic and working our way down to the crawl space, we'll look for any signs of a termite infestation. We check for harborage areas, signs of damage, signs of activity, and signs of life. With over 20 years of experience, we know what to look for.
If we find any signs of termites during the inspection, we'll treat the areas of infestation with a termiticide. We'll then install the Advanced Termite Baiting System to protect your house in the long term. This system involves the installation of bait stations into the soil around the perimeter of your home.
This baiting system is less invasive than drilling unnecessary holes around the home. This non-invasive system works when termites take the bait and bring it back to their colony. The active ingredient in the bait can be spread from termite to termite until all have been eliminated.
Your Advanced Termite Baiting System comes with a one-year renewable and transferable warranty. We will return to your home once a year to perform a termite inspection and check your system's bait levels. If any termites are found during our yearly visit, we will retreat the home at no additional charge.
If you are purchasing a new home or refinancing your current one, your lender may require you to file a WDO/WDI (wood-destroying organism/wood-destroying insect) report. Mike's Pest, Termite and Wildlife Control offers this service. We will perform a detailed inspection of the home, looking for any signs of damage caused by wood-destroying organisms, such as termites, powder post beetles, or fungi, and write up the required report of our findings.
Please call for WDO/WDI Reports for VA Refinancing Loans!
