Yes, if you have wood stud walls, sheetrock, or any other wood-based products in your home, you are at risk for termite infestation and damage.
How often should I have my home inspected for termites?
We suggest an annual inspection to ensure that your home is free from termites, moisture, or wood-destroying organisms.
Do I have to leave my home or move furniture for treatment?
