So, you’re about to fumigate your home. Congratulations! This one step will give you peace of mind and help your home last for years in the future.

You have the same dream that most American homeowners have. To have a beautiful and lush lawn that gives a great first impression to those who drive by, visit, or eventually attempt to buy your home. But pristine grass doesn’t just grow on its own. It takes maintenance and tender loving care, and for those homeowners who struggle the most with their lawn, it often requires a serious intervention.
When a drywood termite issue has gone untreated for many years it is not uncommon for the homeowner to assume that the property is too far gone and that nothing can be done to fix it. In most cases, that assumption is simply untrue. While termites reproduce quickly, they don’t eat fast enough to lay waste to your home in a matter of years.
One of the many valuable services that we offer at Holder Termite and Pest Control is the Certified Water Audit. You may not have heard of it before, but it is an excellent way to test your irrigation system to ensure that it is running as well as it should. Your home’s irrigation system should work for you, so we highly recommend an audit to homeowners who want to make sure their system is working properly.

And doesn’t it seem like ant traps and sprays never seem to solve the sugar ant dilemma? Try these tips to say “bye bye” to sugar ants once and for all.
