Storm Damage and Termites: What You Need to Know

If you experienced storm damage that disturbed the soil surrounding your house and you have a termite treatment agreement with us, please call us at 615.217.7284. A re-treatment of your home is necessary to maintain your agreement and to prevent future termite damage. We will schedule a time to inspect your home and re-treat it.

With the recent damaging weather in Tennessee, many homeowners are cleaning up debris left over from the storms. While it’s not hard to remember to take care of the tree that fell over in your yard because you see it all of the time, checking the soil surrounding your home may be more elusive.

When we treat for pest or termite control, we establish an exterior barrier outside your home. Anytime the soil surrounding your house is disturbed, your home is at risk for pest invasions. If you add a deck or a sun room without adding pest protection, you may be involuntarily inviting bugs to join you for dinner. You may see a resurgence of ants or spiders after you do some landscaping. Or, termites may begin meeting for a feast inside your home after a night of bad weather.

If you experienced storm damage that disturbed the soil within five feet of your house and you have a termite treatment agreement with us, please call us at 615.217.7284. A re-treatment of your home may be necessary to maintain your agreement and to prevent future termite damage. We will schedule a time to inspect your home and re-treat it.

Please call us if you have questions about how home improvements, storm damage and landscaping affects pest control. If any of your friends or family has damage that disturbed the soil around their home, please ask them to check in with their pest control company. If they don’t have pest protection, their home may be at risk.

Storms are hectic. Cleaning up after storms can be overwhelming. We are here to help you keep your home protected.
