These Termites Are Even Worse Than I Thought!

    You know I’m always telling people in our area to take care of their homes and have them fumigated on a regular basis to minimize damage. Well, I’m here to tell you that these termites have absolutely no respect for me. It’s as if they are paying me back for killing so many termites all of these years!

    My wife and I moved into our house after we got married in June of 1990. We needed a garage, so we had a new one built from scratch. Six years later, I noticed the paint was starting to flake off, so I decided to re-paint the wood trim on the garage. When I went to re-paint the trim, I discovered the facia had been badly damaged by drywood termites. I couldn’t even believe how much damage occurred in only six years! Don’t they know who I am? I am the termite exterminator!! But, the termites don’t care and I wound up replacing all of the facia and fumigating my entire house.

    In 2010, I noticed termite droppings in the garage, so fumigated my house, again.

    Just recently, we decided the garage needed some fresh paint. But, when we started to re-paint it, we discovered that the facia was termite damaged. We had already fumed the house, so the termites were all dead.  But, the facia all had to be replaced, again. That’s twice in only 20 years!

    Ladies and gentlemen, my garage is living proof of how bad these drywood termites are in our area. I know you’re busy and it is easy to keep putting off taking care of your home. But, I’m also telling you, from first hand experience, that procrastination will cost you a lot of time and money. Has it been two or more years since you had your home inspected?
