The Destructive Impact of Termites on Homes

Termites are tiny insects that can cause significant damage to homes. These pests feed on cellulose-containing materials, which are commonly used in the construction of buildings. When left unchecked, termites can cause extensive damage to a home’s structure and compromise its safety.

Termites Cause Structural Damage

Termites can compromise a home’s structural integrity by eating through wood framing, flooring, and support beams. Over time, this can weaken the building, causing it to sag or even collapse. Repairing structural damage caused by termites can be expensive and time-consuming.

Damage to Furniture and Wooden Objects

Termites can also cause damage to furniture and other wooden objects within a home. They can chew through chairs, tables, and cabinets, leaving behind unsightly holes and weakened structures. This can lead to costly repairs or replacement of furniture and other affected items.

Prevention and Treatment

Regular inspections by a professional pest control company can help detect termite infestations early and prevent significant damage. Treatment options include chemical barriers, baiting systems, and fumigation. Preventive measures such as removing wood debris from around the home, repairing leaky pipes, and ensuring proper ventilation can also help deter termites.

Great experience! Mark is knowledgeable and fair. Very communicative! I knew exactly when his guys were coming and about what time. Benji and DJ did a great job of addressing all the areas of my home where I had gaps that were allowing squirrels into my attic. They were pleasant, efficient and accommodating. Strongly recommend this company.

Called Holders to remove an unknown critter from my house. Benji came out to do my inspection. He was personable, answered all my questions, and gave me a fair price for sealing my house and removal of the pest. He and DJ came back to do the work a couple days later. They were quick and thorough and sensitive to the fact that I had a sleeping newborn. Highly recommend.

Ricky and DJ with Holders Pest & Wildlife services performed our routine service today 9/2022. They were professional, courteous, attentive and appeared to be a good team. Ricky listened and addressed any of my concerns. I can't leave out Felicia, the receptionist, she is phenomenal! She's professional, understanding and willing to work with our schedule so that it's convenient on both sides. She's a keeper & we're grateful for her. Holders Pest & Wildlife has serviced our home for over 3 yrs and have remedied issues from mice, mites, stick bugs, antsand spiders. Being backed up to woods and a creek, we encounter a variety of creatures from time to time. I must add, although there's been a few staff changes over this time period, they still managed to provide good service each visit. Thank you for respecting our request of wearing your facial mask and shoe covers every visit! 🙂

We had a rodent problem and we chose Holder’s to do the job over our current brand name exterminator. I had a fantastic experience from the moment I called their number. The lady who took the call was very sweet and knowledgeable about the many questions I asked. Then she connected me directly with the technician, Benji, who would be coming out for the inspection. He too was so sweet and accommodating to our needs.I thought his initial inspection was done in a very professional manner. The quote and his explanation of the costs were straightforward and at no point, did he try to upsell me. The job was done in a few hours and cleanup was also done well. Benji also does a great job following up and keeping me informed.It’s definitely pricey but very much worth it to have peace of mind. It will save you from other more costly issues in the future. So far haven’t had any issues since they left.? I really liked the hands-on approach and general vibe of this company. There’s something personal about their touch that you don’t get from larger brand name companies.

We had a pest issue in the attic decided to hire Holder Pest to take a look. They were able to handle the issue with speed, professionalism and effectiveness. Their prices were fair and they offer a one year warranty. Ricky and Benji were very friendly and helpful with the entire process. Thanks again. Would recommend both for any pest issues you may have.
