Now is the time to have your home inspected to get peace of mind or to get a termite problem service. Termites can be silently destroying your home without you even knowing.

What Attracts Termites

Termites and pests feed on dead plants or wood like your home’s foundation, wooden floors, shelves, carpets, and even your untreated furniture. Another surprising food source for termites is mulch. An HVAC unit has the water tube draining next to your foundation can also be a problem.
