Termites Are Ready To Make A Meal Out Of Your Lexington Home
Do you know that all termites are not created equal? Some termite species are far more destructive than others. The least destructive termites are drywood termites. The cost of damage caused by drywood termites in the United States is in the hundreds of millions. The reason they cause the least amount of damage is likely due to their visibility. Drywood termites push their dropping out of kickout holes, and these droppings are often clearly seen in the sunlight on window frames.
The most destructive termites in the United States are classified as subterranean termites. There are several species in this classification and some are more destructive than others. One of the worst of all subterranean termites is the Formosan subterranean termite, which is able to do structural damage to a home within 6 months.
In our South Carolina service area, our battles with subterranean termites and infestations of Formosan termites are on the rise. No homeowner in South Carolina should be without some form of termite protection, even if all you do is have an inspection once a year. While there are some signs you can look for to detect termite activity, subterranean termites are sneaky by nature and it can be very difficult to detect them if you don't have training or experience in termite detection.
The best solution to protect your Lexington home from destructive subterranean termites is to have a licensed professional install a termiticide barrier treatment around your home. At the Original Bugman Pest Elimination, Inc, we trust Termidor to get the job done right. Termidor is the number-one name in termite protection in the United States.
What can you expect from Termidor?
There was a time when termiticides killed termites on contact. For its time, there was nothing better for stopping the damage termites cause, but in the last few decades, Termidor has increased in its effectiveness by taking on termites in a whole new way. It is called the Termidor Transfer Effect™.
- Step One — Termites pass through the termiticide product that has been injected into the soil around your home. This product is undetectable to termites so there is no defensive response to exposure.
- Step Two — Exposed termites transfer the active ingredient with each other as they groom one another. Since termites groom each other excessively, the product moves quickly through the colony.
- Step Three — The termites in the colony slowly die off, including the queen and all the female reproductives. When there are no more reproductive females, the colony is dead.

If you do nothing, your savings and your retirement could be at risk. The equity of your home is part of your nest egg. For some families, it is their entire nest egg.
