Termites Cost Billions
Termite damage is estimated to be on average 5 billion dollars annually according to the National Pest Management Association of America. Termite damage is typically not covered by most home owner insurance polices. Early detection can limit damage. Spotting termites is not easy to the untrained eyes. In St. Louis, we deal with subterranean termites which live below ground and travel to structures through the ground.
Here are some examples when termites may exist –
- Wood Damage
- Piles of Course Grains of Sand
- Mud Tubes
- Blistering Sagging Floors
- Unexplained Cracks
- Sticking Windows and Doors
STL Home Inspection Services has a licensed termite inspector on staff who will report our findings on the state mandated NPMA-33 form.
