Left untreated, termites can literally destroy the interior of your home or business. According to a recent study, termites cost Americans more than $5 billion in damages each year. That’s more than fire and flooding combined. And their destruction knows no bounds because any home, regardless of its construction type, can offer the ideal combination of warmth, moisture, and food for a termite attack. Additionally, many homeowners’ insurance plans won’t cover any of the damage. Not having protection can lead to problems when selling a home, since many lending institutions require a termite bond before lending money to home buyers.
