Have you ever been told that termites don’t eat in the winter? It was 25 degrees outside today, but that didn’t stop termites from attacking homes! Joe found lots of termites coming up the expansion joint of an addition today when he inspected a local home. The homeowner has about $2,000 worth of damage because he let his contract lapse a few years ago. He didn’t want to spend $150 to renew the contract, so now he has to spend about $1,000 to have his home treated–in addition to the cost of repairing the damage the termites have done.
It’s a myth that termites are dormant during the winter!
