Never Assume When it Comes to Termites!

photoI recently bought a house and many people kept suggesting that I should get it checked for termites. However, I hastily dismissed the ominous warnings as I had not ‘seen’ any kind of insects or pests in the month or so that I lived here.

As you must have guessed, I had to pay dearly for my nonchalance and ignorance when a heavy termite infestation surfaced only after six months or so! I called in the troops immediately when my wife happened to spot a bent and heaving shelf in a corner wardrobe.

The expert technicians of Tactical Pest and Termite Solutions immediately announced that not only was the shelf full of termites, but the dreaded creepies were teeming all over the house! I was left further befuddled when the pest control providers in Fort Mill SC confirmed that the house was likely infested even when I had bought it!

They gently explained to me that termites are known as ‘silent destroyers’ for downloadgood reason. They prefer to hide in dark spots and you cannot them immediately. Some are nocturnal, so hardly ever seen again. Even their wings, droppings or the holes that they make in the wood can escape the attention of an untrained eye.

The pest control treatment was thorough and effective and I have sworn never to even consider purchasing a property before a detailed termite inspection has been done!
