YOUR HOME OR OFFICE IS NOT SAFE FROM TERMITES! No building is safe! Termites are enemy number one in the pest control and real estate worlds and in Union City, NJ. Even quite Union City is susceptible to their attacks. Multiple insurance estimates have stated, 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. These termites typically live in colonies underground, foraging for cellulose and moisture sources by way of mud tunneling. Their infestations typically occur via structural cracks in concrete floors or wood in contact with the ground. Subterranean termites build mud tubes to forage for food and link their nest to the newly found food source. On the Spot Pest Control recognizes the frustration a termite infestation can be and the resulting stress. As destructive as termites are, why would you trust your Union City residence or office to anyone else, than the proven leader?

Why do homeowners neglect inspecting for termites? The simple answer is they don’t believe it could happen to them. Please, do not let normalcy bias hamper your protection. Why are professional termite inspections important?

  • Typically, homeowner’s 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

Previously we mentioned the method termites enter buildings. The entry method is 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 essential to make any building, whether constructed with slab, basement or crawl space foundations, a target.
