Termites love two things: wood and plenty of time to devour it. Termites can make quick work of the wood in your home's structure, and every hour adds up to more extensive, expensive damage. To keep your home off the menu, have a professional exterminator install a baiting system or simply pre-treat the home's foundation with a termiticide. Both offer ample protection against these wood-eating insects. Termite treatment services are usually offered at a fixed cost, so to avoid spending extra money on reconstruction, make that call right away.
