WHY IS TERMITE PREVENTION SO CRITICAL?
Termites love feeding on most people’s biggest investment: their home. In the United States alone, termites cause more than $5 billion worth of damage every year. Despite this, termite damage isn’t covered by most homeowners’ insurance policies. You would protect your home from fire and flood damage, why not termites? With termite populations on the rise in SD, the time to act is NOW!
The best way to identify termites in your home is by calling The Bug Guy for a thorough inspection. Unfortunately, termites can wreck your home before you know you have them, here are some signs to be aware of:
• Termites or termite wings on window sills or along walls
• Mud tubes appearing along foundation
• Baseboards/floors that sound hollow or sag
• Visible damage to wood around window and door frames
We now offer top of the line annual termite bait stations (ATBS). We strategically install these bait stations every 10-20 ft around the perimeter of your home, about 1 foot beneath the ground. Rather than attract termites these bait stations intercept termites during their natural foraging process. Upon discovery, the termite will feed on the bait. After the termite is finished eating it will bring bait back to share with its colony, leaving a pheromone trail behind that the other termites in the colony will be able to follow. The superior design of our system leads to proven performance while maintaining a low profile that
