We often receive information on what are termites? Ways to prevent them and keep them at bay? The information unavailable to us is, whether termite protection is necessary for us, and if yes, is it worth paying for!

Accurate Pest Control has compiled a set of self-assessment questions which if answered yes, indicate that you need termite control service and it is worth every penny.

  1. Does the law of the state in which you live make it mandatory to have some kind of termite protection for your home or property?
  2. Are you afraid that you have a termite problem and it’s ruining your precious property?
  3. Have you noticed termite activity or do your neighbors have a termite problem?
  4. Do you live in San Antonio, Texas?

If anyone of the above questions is answered with a yes, then you should contact a pest control service right away.

Did you know that the city of San Antonio ranks no. 2 among cities that have the most termite infestation problems?

Most of the cities in Texas rank among the top 10 with termite infestation problems. The department of agriculture has estimated nearly 600,000 homes are infested with termites. It is also clear that termites love living in San Antonio for the same reason we do, it is neither too hot nor too cold. It is also known that the underground wood resources in San Antonio, Texas are just about adequate for termites to thrive and multiply in. The above reasons are yet not enough for many people who question if it is worth paying for termite protection services.

In a survey, it is estimated that every year around 5 billion US dollars worth of private and commercial property is destroyed by termites infestations. The average cost of repairing damage caused by termite infestation is around $3000. Homeowner’s insurance policies rarely include any cover for damages caused by termite infestations. Therefore, it is very important to employ the services of a professional pest control company to exterminate termites before they cause damage to your property. The high costs of repairs and the potential cost of completely losing the property is reason enough to invest in termite protection.

Pests bring along with them all sorts of diseases, like the recent coronavirus or COVID-19 which scientists suspect was transferred to humans indirectly via bats. Termites, on the other hand, do not carry any harmful life-threatening diseases, but they are known to amplify the symptoms of asthma and allergies. Hiring a licensed termite inspection company such as Accurate Pest Control in San Antonio, who specializes in safe and effective removal of all kinds of pests, will ensure this doesn’t happen in the first place.

So, is termite protection worth paying for? For most homeowners in San Antonio, the answer is always emphatic, yes! If you want to protect your precious home from termites or any other pests call us for a free quote and a pest-free tomorrow!
