Termites Have No Place In Your Home Or Business
Purchasing a home is a huge investment in your family and future. Therefore, protecting your investment should always be a priority. When termites invade your Havertown home, they threaten your property by quietly destroying it from within. These pests are responsible for causing five billion dollars in structural damages and prevention costs annually throughout the United States. Unfortunately, termite damage is quite costly and rarely covered by homeowners' insurance.
Our Termite Control Process
Termites are known as silent invaders because of the way they quietly infiltrate your home, causing massive damage over time before you ever realize you have a problem. There are several types of termites to contend with, but our least favorite is the subterranean termite. Subterranean termites tunnel underground and into your home, making them incredibly difficult to detect. Locating the source of your termite activity is an important step toward effectively treating your infestation. Fortunately, Cunningham Pest Control technicians have the training to detect conducive conditions that attract these pests and identify the signs of their presence. Common signs of a termite infestation include the following:
- Buckling floorboards
- Damaged or drooping drywall
- Discarded translucent wings from termite swarmers
- Soft scratching sounds from within your walls
- Pinpoint-sized holes in the wall
- Wooden shavings or frass
Cunningham Pest Control uses bait stations for the ultimate termite protection available. We will place bait stations around the perimeter of your property that will attract termites. Once they've taken the bait, they will return to their colony and spread the bait throughout, effectively terminating the entire termite colony all at once! We offer quarterly monitoring to ensure termite activity doesn't continue after a treatment; foundation pre-treatments are also available. Our residential and commercial termite treatments also include a free one-year warranty with all completed work, and we will assume warranties from our competitors if transferring your service.
Additionally, we offer wood-destroying insect inspections for home and business purchases and refinancing. Call today to learn more and protect your biggest investment!
