Termites are the most destructive pests. Nationwide, termite problems are said to cost a collective 5 billion dollars in damages every year. Termites can begin to cause damage when the colony has been active for at least a couple of years.
Termite damage appears most often in wood or wooden items. Noticing hollowed-out wood, damaged flooring, sagging ceilings, or peeling paint are all signs of termite damage in your Midwestern home or business.
A serious termite infestation can set back a property owner up to $3,000 in repairs. Minor damages typically cost a couple of hundred dollars to repair. In any case, termite damage is typically one of the most costly pest problems.
A WDI inspection helps to locate the presence (or absence) of wood-destroying insects in a property in the buying or selling stage. A professional termite exterminator is the best way to get a trusted WDI report.
