Modern’s Termite Inspection

Termite damage in block of woodModern’s Termite Control program starts with an in-home termite inspection conducted by a trained termite specialist. During the termite inspection, a detailed graph is created noting current termite activity, amount of damage and conditions that may be conducive for future activity. The termite inspection includes a thorough review of areas such as basements, crawl spaces, attics, the exterior of the buildings, spaces under porches and the entire first floor if built on a slab.

Control Termites with a Termite Inspection!

The Eastern Subterranean termites seen in Massachusetts, New Hampshire, and Maine are the most destructive kind of termites, often going undetected until it’s too late. Termites can invade your property at any time as they forage for their next meal, causing extensive structural damage and the need for costly repairs. In fact, these wood-destroying insects are responsible for billions of dollars in property damage every year in the US, damage rarely covered by homeowners’ insurance.

Call Modern Pest Services for an in-home termite inspection at the first sign or suspicion of a termite infestation. Neglecting to do so could lead to further property damage and potentially put your family at risk of being injured due to weakened floorboards, support beams or other compromised wood structures in your home. Scheduling a termite inspection is the first step in identifying and preventing termite activity.
