More termite facts.

Subterranean termites live in underground colonies with as many as two million members. They are also found in moist secluded areas above ground.


The best method of subterranean termite control is to avoid water accumulation near your home's foundation. Divert water away, reduce humidity in crawl spaces with proper ventilation. Never bury wood scraps or waste lumber in the yard. Most importantly, eliminate wood contact with the soil.


Termite awareness week . We can give you a free termite inspection . Call us to get your name on our inspectors list. We will get booked up quickly so call to get your name in .

Many homeowners are not aware of how much damage termites can inflict on structures. Termites cost homeowners more than $5 billion annually in damages - this is more than floods, fires, and tornadoes combined. When compared with other natural disasters, termites are high on the list of the most expensive sources of damage - and not covered by your homeowner's insurance - but are the most preventable of these disasters.

Our business started back in 1971 on the same lot we are on now, However, It wasn't the building we are in now. Ken Sr had humble beginnings in a metal storage building. Armed with a B&G sprayer, He set to work, putting his faith in God to help him thrive. The successes through the years enabled the larger more efficient operation to be built in 1997. Daughter's Pamela Manis and Tammy Keirsey are proud to carry on the family business.
