A Termite Bond can sometimes be intimidating to a buyer. At Advanced Termite and Pest control, we prefer to call them Termite Agreements. In our Agreements, we do lay out the liabilities and responsibilities for our company and customer.
Who needs a termite bond?
On every continent except for Alaska, there are termites. So, realistically almost everyone needs a termite bond. The termite agreement will protect the homeowners from potentially costly termite damage. In addition, home insurance almost never covers termite damage. This is because the damage is preventable. There are two options you have for your termite bond, a liquid treatment or baiting station protection. Liquid termite treatment used to be the only way. However, we now know that new science has proved that a Termite Baiting System is the best termite protection you can get.
Liquid Treatment Vs. Baiting Protection
The termite protection we use on our customers’ properties is the best termite protection available. We use a baiting system rather than a liquid treatment. We love that it does not require any drilling into foundations. . This is especially important in areas near water, like Charleston. This due to the toxic runoff from the liquid treatments that pollute our oceans, rivers, creeks, and all water sources. Not only that, but it makes the product weaker and less effective on your home. A baiting system will not disintegrate or pollute the rain or flood water and can withstand minor flooding.
How IT works
Using scientific information about termite behavior, our baiting system ends the food chain needed by the queen and her colony for survival. With the proven power to wipe out future hungry termite generations, baiting stations give you complete termite protection. Using scientifically engineered bait to naturally enter their food chain, the queen and her entire colony are eliminated. Science trumps termites. The science behind a termite baiting system leaves termites helpless because they can’t tell the active ingredient is lethal. In lab tests when given the choice, termites ate nearly 10 times more bait than wood.
The Process of a termite warranty
STEP ONE: Installation – After a Certified Termite Technician assesses your structure, baiting stations will be installed around the exterior of your home. The bait is immediately available to the termites as food. In-ground stations have a visible service cover only opened by a special key.
STEP TWO: Foraging – Preferring the bait nearly 10 times more than wood, worker termites discover and quickly share their find within the colony. Once ingested, the active ingredient in the bait, novaluron, prevents termites from maturing through molting.
STEP THREE: Elimination – Unable to molt, termites die. And when the colony dies, the queen isn’t too far behind. Like a captain going down with the ship, despite the resolve to survive, there’s just no hope.
STEP FOUR: Protection – Imagine worry-free, 24/7 protection now and well into the future. All it takes is your original bait stations and ongoing service from one of our fully trained technicians. For what it’s worth, termites prefer you opt out of this offering.
