Termite Infested Homes and Buildings-

Termites can cause anxiety in even the calmest property owner. The termites do not come out into the open, they feed on wood which is inside the structure, and you can’t get rid of them easily with a quick run to the hardware store to get a “spray.”

Termites cause over $5 billion in damage each year and this is a major concern of homeowners especially in areas that are prone to heavy termite infestation.
