Can They Really Cause Significant Damage?

A:  YES! Termites are responsible for between $2-3 billion in damage each year in the U.S. alone!! This means that they are accredited with causing more damage each year than storms and damaging more than three times as many homes as fire.

Q: What Kind of Damage Can They Do?

A:  The termites that are indigenous to our service area of Central Virginia are primarily Subterranean. These termites pose a serious risk to any unprotected structure. The risks include, but are not limited to:

  • Damage to wooden construction materials such as framing, drywall, sub-floors, structural timbers, wood siding, etc.
  • Damage to Electrical and Electronic items due to the mud shelter tubes termites construct
  • Damage to cellulose containing items in the home such as furniture, wall decorations, cabinets, cardboard boxes, paper, etc.
  • The simple nuisance issues they pose, should they swarm within the structure
Q:  Why Should I Worry About Termites? A:  Most people don’t give termites a second thought until it is too late, usually after damage is found.  Sometimes, folks feel that basement or slab construction is impervious to termite infestations and others believe that the termite treatment that was done when their house was built will last for a lifetime.  Neither are true.
  • Termites work around the clock, year round
  • The damage is rarely seen, since termites don’t usually break through the surface of the wood
Q:  How can Holistic Pest Solutions protect my home from termites? A:  After our professionals inspect your property, they can alert you to any conditions that exist which may be conducive to termites and termite infestation. Additionally, after inspecting the structure, they can prescribe a treatment that is specific to your situation, taking into consideration your needs and concerns, the construction type and any environmental conditions that may exist in, under and around the structure to be protected.
