My home is brand new! I couldn’t possibly have termites…

Your home might be new construction but has it been properly treated to prevent termites? You’d be surprised how often we find newly constructed homes with a termite infestation. It could be because the lumber was sitting for a long time on the ground before it was used to put up a wall and termites got into that pile of lumber. FYI: In one (1) single acre of land, there could be as many as twelve (12) different colonies of termites. In one single colony of termites, there could be as many as two million members of that colony foraging around trying to find a food source. Be sure to have your home inspected once a year for termites. Prevention and early detection is your best defense against termites.
