Return to Risk Assessment
But still possible. A problem in low risk areas is that because they are unexpected, termites can be mistaken for other pests (e.g., “white ants”). Be prepared. Contact a pest management professional about a comprehensive home inspection and learn how to protect your home from future termite attacks.
This means it is likely your home is under threat. Contact a pest management professional about a comprehensive home inspection to identify and address any termite infestations that may already be causing damage. They also can tell you how to protect your home from the hassle and cost of future termite attacks.
In high-risk areas, the question is usually when, rather than if, your home will be attacked. Contact a pest management professional about a comprehensive home inspection to identify and address any existing termite infestations. The Sentricon® System and Certified Sentricon Specialists™ can help alleviate the headaches and hassles of termite damage. And if your home has never had an attack, Sentricon can keep it that way when installed as a preventative solution.
