Termites Control Services

Termites are a serious pest control problem, causing billions of dollars in damage to homes throughout the United States. Their main food source is the wood in your home and they will go to great lengths to reach it. If you plan to sell your home, you may find that the contract stipulates that the house must pass a termite inspection. United Exterminating of Tennessee provides termite control services in Nashville, TN and the surrounding areas.

Subterranean termites live under ground and tunnel up through foundation blocks and across PVC pipes in shelter tubes to enter your home. The termites are often unnoticed until they have done serious damage or the property fails a termite inspection. These pests are found throughout the country, but are most common in the Southern United States, where temperatures are warmer. The best way to prevent this damage is to have regular inspections.

Unfortunately, people often don’t know they have termites until they have been there for years, doing damage to the wood boards inside your walls. Over time, the integrity of the wood is significantly weakened. If you have a problem with termites, we offer termite inspections and termite removal services to eliminate these pests and prevent further damage to your home.
