YOUR RESIDENCE OR COMMERCIAL BUILDING IS NOT SAFE FROM TERMITES! No structure is safe! Termites are the number one worst pests and Marlboro, NJ is vulnerable from their attacks. According to multiple insurance estimates, an estimated $5 billion of damage every year in the United States is caused by termites with over 5 million homes having some type of termite problem. The most common termite, in North America, is the Subterranean Termite. Subterranean termites live in colonies underground, searching for cellulose and moisture sources by way of mud tunneling. They infest structures via cracks in concrete floors or wood in contact with the ground. Subterranean termites build mud tubes to explore for food and connect their underground nest to that food source. On the Spot Pest Control recognizes the frustration a termite infestation can be once discovered. As destructive as termites are, why would you trust your Marlboro residence or office to anyone else, than the proven leader?

Often homeowners neglect inspecting for termites because they dont believe it could happen to them. Please, do not let normalcy bias keep you from being properly protected. Why are professional termite inspections important?

  • Typically, homeowners insurance does not provide protection against termite damage
  • Termite colonies or damage may not be visible to the untrained eye
  • No home is safe from a termite infestation
  • Termites cause more damage to homes each year than fire and floods combined

There are many myths surrounding termites, and we thought we should mention some of the truths about termites. Per the NPCA Field Guide to Structural Pests:

  • More than 365,000 homes will need the fire department this year. But over 2 million homes will require termite treatment.
  • Homeowners insurance will help recover losses from fires, storms and earthquakes, but it is almost impossible to carry insurance against termite infestation

As mentioned, termites can enter a building in an assortment of ways such as cracks, expansion joints, hollow bricks or concrete blocks around plumbing. Only an opening as small as 1/32 of an inch is required to make any building, whether constructed with slab, basement or crawl space foundations, a feasible target. Termite detection and control should be left for a professional. In Marlboro, the one to trust is On the Spot Pest Control.
