Did you know termites cause more damage each year in the US than all natural disasters combined? It is true. They are natural recyclers that eat dead wood. And while that sounds like an excellent way to get rid of fallen limbs and trees, the same is not true if they are munching on your home.

The Battle Against Termites
Termites are silent destroyers, sawing into your floor joists, wall studs, and more. Unfortunately, your yard alone can contain hundreds of individual termite colonies.
Termites in Virginia are an all-year issue, and our climate is perfect for them to thrive. There are over 2.000 types of termites globally, and 40 in the United States. But, really, three types are prevalent, especially in Virginia. They are as follows:
- Subterranean termites
- Formosan termites
- Dry wood termites
The National Pest Management Association estimates that termites cause over $5 billion in property damage annually.
What’s worse, most homeowners’ insurance policies don’t cover you for termites. Unfortunately, many termite infestations tend to go unnoticed for years. That is precisely why James River Pest Solutions offers preventative plans for treating and controlling termites in your home.
Preventing Termite Infestations
Termites survive off of wood, fiberboard, paper, cotton, and other cellulose products in your home. When they are not spotted, the termites can eat right through the walls of your home and cause extensive damage.
Termites in Virginia are subterranean and cannot be exposed to light for long periods, or they will dry out and die. Therefore, a thorough termite inspection is essential to catch them in the act. However, even if there are no signs of activity, that does not guarantee you don’t have a termite infestation.
Therefore, they tend to take the darkest path possible into your home, often entering through cracks between brick and cinderblock or in the hollow parts of the cinderblock around your foundation.
At James River, we will provide a thorough inspection at no cost. In addition to looking for signs of termites, we will also inform you of any conditions conducive to termites and where they may thrive.
After your professional inspection, we will offer you customized treatment options to eliminate the termites affecting your structure. If no signs of termites were found, we would recommend preventative termite treatment. Ensure termites never get the chance to start eating your home with James River Pest Solutions.
