How to Terminate Terrible Termites

Termites with Queen

If you discovered a burglar in your house, you would throw the thief out immediately. Our advice, do the same with termites. If you suspect termites have invaded your home, call Orlando pest-control experts before the termites can cause you financial and emotional harm.

Pests not pets

Of all the pests that will make you call an exterminator, termites are among the creepiest (pun intended). One termite queen can live for 25 years and lay 2,000 eggs a day. Before a colony of termites can make itself comfortable in the foundation of your house, learn how to identify the intruder and exterminate them before they can overrun your home.
