Are Termites Destroying Your Home’s Value Right Now?

Termite colonies can take up to 5 years to infest and grow to a size where they can cause serious damage to a home.  Each year, it’s estimated that home owners spend on average $2,500 – $3,000 per treated home, fixing termite damage, totaling an average of over $5 Billion in damage and repairs.  As a colony gets comfortable with your home (or prospective home), the termites can slowly start causing damage that will need to be repaired.   Here’s what you can do to prevent spending money on termite damage repairs:

Start with a Termite Inspection

Get a free termite inspection from The Neuse Termite and Pest Control and make sure that the damage isn’t already done.  If it turns out you do have termites, then luckily you took action when you did.  Each day that goes by with termites can be another day added to costly repairs.  If you don’t have termites, no harm done.  With free inspections, you can’t go wrong.

Get a Second Opinion

If you’re buying a previously lived in home, it may be worth getting a second opinion on termites.  If the seller is providing the termite inspection, you may want to look into the company performing the inspection.  At The Neuse Termite and Pest Control, we have extensive experience with termites and are second to none in finding and treating for termites.  We can offer a second opinion on termite inspections for an added layer of security in buying your new home.


Take Action – Schedule a Termite Treatment

That’s right, schedule the treatment, event if it’s preventative.  When getting a termite treatment from The Neuse Termite and Pest Control, your treated home can repel termites for as much as 10 years.  Spending the money now on a termite treatment, instead of finding damage, repairing your home and then getting treatment done, is a worthwhile investment.  In fact, we treat brand new construction homes frequently to preserve the investment of new home buyers.  Why not preserve your home’s value too?
