Is Termite Prevention Worth The Money??
Most definitely! Here in Florida it is more likely that your home either currently has or has had termites in the past then never had them. Unfortunately for most home owners it is usually too late when evidence of termites shows face. This can mean extensive damage could have occurred without your knowledge. Termite workers can enter through the smallest of openings including around plumbing pipes or expansion joints in foundations. They will stay hidden within the wood framing of the home moving from ground level upwards. The main reason homeowners find that they have termites is when the colony produces "alates" which are winged reproductives. These alates will swarm out the colony trying to find a new area to reproduce and start a new colony. By having a preventative treatment to your home in conjunction with annual inspections you can rest easy knowing your home is well protected.
