A PestX Termite Inspection could save you an average of $3000
One of the most destructive infestations our PestX Team see here for Bakersfield pest control cases are termites. They should be called the Silent Destroyers because even a thorough inspection conducted by a novice homeowner could overlook a very well established termite infestation. You need to know exactly what you’re looking for and where they leave their evidence – or in this case their Trail of Destruction
Even in our line of business, we don’t ever want to sound like we’re just doom and gloom but we promise you that termites are not something you want to be sharing your home with. PestX Pest and Termite Control have seen some serious damage over the years and can’t emphasize enough that any termite prevention is a worthwhile exercise, especially if you have had an infestation before.
When you think that a colony can increase from 60,000 termites to around 2 million of them in less than 6 months – and all of this is fairly quietly – you can understand the need for minimising the damage these pests cause as quickly as possible.
If you are ever looking at buying a new home or investing in a property, we highly recommend you commissioning a professional to conduct a thorough inspection before you sign anything. When you think that the average cost of repairing termite damage is $3,000, you can see that paying a small amount to ensure there are no termites in the first place is a valuable investment.
It may be tempting to conduct this yourself but not all of the destruction is obvious, so a professional inspection is by far the most cost effective method of dealing with termites.
PestX will look for evidence of previous infestations and will know whether the damage is current or not, We will be able to gauge whether the infestation is an old one which has already been dealt with or whether it is the start of a new one.
PestX will also be able to establish whether treatments have been used in the past and how effective they were. We will also be able to tell you whether there are currently any protective measures in place. All of these factors could help you save money by not having to splash out on something already in place but equally we can show you where you are vulnerable to infestation.
Besides preventative measures, catching a termite infestation early on is always going to be the best defence in dealing with these pests. Termites may live underground but we promise you this isn’t something that you want to be burying your head in the sand on – once termites are in place they will just keep destroying your premises in the process of building their own colony up. They never just change their mind half-way through so you need to act if you already know you have termites.
If you suspect that you may have termites already or you are looking at investing in a new property or premises, call one of our PestX experts to arrange a professional inspection.
We also offer payment plans which can help you to factor in having regular inspections throughout the year to ensure you are always protected against the common culprits in your area.
