Termite Control Services
Termites are the most important of wood-destroying pests around the world, and subterranean termites are found in every state of the U.S.. Though many people do not tend to know much about these pests, there is nothing more unsettling as a homeowner than the thought of a hidden pest destroying the wooden parts of your home. Subterranean termites need cellulose (found in wood and wood products) for nuitrition and soil for moisture to survive, so with the amount of wood used in homes and buildings, its easier to understand how termites can quickly become a problem.
Each year termites invade millions of homes, causing billions of dollars in damage which is rarely covered by homeowners insurance. The protection of these pests is especially important in the southern United States due to many months of a warm humid climate that is conducive to their activity. Both Formosan and Eastern subterranean termites can be found along the gulf coast of the U.S., so preventive measures to safeguard your home should be taken to insure that you are shielded from these pests. Knockout Pest and Termite provides re-treatment and repair guarantees for both Formosan and Eastern subterranean infestations, and our bond covers up to $1,000,000 of repair to your home and its contents.
