Taking out the Termites

I was devastated to discover that my home had termites, especially when I got a look at the damaged they’d already caused. I wasn’t sure if I was going to be able to fix the damage at all, and I couldn’t even begin until the termites were gone. It was terrible. Luckily, I found a great exterminator, and I was able to get the bugs out of the house. The exterminator even recommended a contractor that could help with repairing termite damage. I was lucky, so I decided to start this blog to help other people avoid termite damage, or get past it. Find out how to spot the early signs of a termite infestation and how to minimize termite damage to your home.
