Why is termite control and prevention so important in Florida?
Every year termites cause more property damage in the U.S. than floods, fires, hurricanes and earthquakes, combined. It may also surprise you to know that termite damage is not typically covered by homeowner's insurance.
Your home can easily be protected from costly subterranean termite damage by utilizing the latest in termite baiting technology. Drywood termites on the other hand, can not be prevented, but can be eliminated by fumigating your home.
