The worst thing that could have happened has happened. Your house has termites! Don’t panic. A Better Bugman can help.

There are two types of structures. Those that have termites, and those that are going to get termites. Termites do more damage to property each year than fires, floods, and weather combined.

There are two major types of termites:

  • Drywood termites
  • Subterranean termites

Drywood termites infest wood by flying on to it and burrowing into the wood to infest. Drywood termites usually require a tent fumigation for control.

Subterranean termites tunnel up into your home from the soil and require frequent trips back to the soil to survive. The key to controlling these termites is baiting to eliminate the colony. A chemical barrier treatment is also possible for controlling subterranean termites.

If you thing you may have a termite problem, please give us a call here at A Better Bugman. The sooner it is under control, the better!
