Frequently Asked Questions
Yes and No. Most of the time, you will not see termites because termites are “cryptic.” Termites don’t like the sunlight, so they build above-ground mud tunnels to travel and below-ground colonies to work and live and protect them from the light and dry atmosphere. The only times you will see the termite is when they have “eaten too much and exposed themselves” or when they “swarm.”
Termites cause more monetary damage in the US yearly than all the hurricanes, windstorms, and tornados combined! Termites are capable of major damage to homes in the Mid-South area. Termite treatment is strongly recommended in the area due to the potential for infestation and damage.
Every home’s construction is different, and every home must be carefully inspected first to determine the presence of termites and the type of treatment required to protect the home. A Jamison inspection is FREE!
Once the initial treatment is completed, the ongoing warranty is very important in case of termites return. Our warranty covers needed repairs should termites do damage after the initial treatment.
During the spring, the reproductive portion of the colony will produce “swarming termites or termites that fly.” The “Swarmers” purpose is to breed new termites to create new termite colonies. This is one of the few times termites make themselves visible. When you see a swarm of termites in your home, the termites already have a “foothold.”
Every home is different, and our Jamison inspector, following a completely FREE inspection of your home, will share with you the entire treatment recommendation, the “graph” or drawing showing the location of the termites/damage, and our ongoing.
