Pandemic termite invasion
Instant Pest Control Inc., alerts the community to be careful with the fast growing population of termites which are:
A group of social insects usually classified at the taxonomic rank of order Isoptera (but see also taxonomy below). As truly social animals, they are termed eusocial along with the ants and some bees and wasps which are all placed in the separate order Hymenoptera. Termites mostly feed on dead plant material, generally in the form of wood, leaf litter, soil, or animal dung, and about 10% of the estimated 4,000 species (about 2,600 taxonomically known) are economically significant as pests that can cause serious structural damage to buildings, crops or plantation forests. Termites are major detrivores, particularly in the subtropical and tropical regions, and their recycling of wood and other plant matter is of considerable ecological importance.
As eusocial insects, termites live in colonies that, at maturity, number from several hundred to several million individuals. They are a prime example of decentralised, self-organised systems using swarm intelligence and use this cooperation to exploit food sources and environments that could not be available to any single insect acting alone. A typical colony contains nymphs (semi-mature young), workers, soldiers, and reproductive individuals of both genders, sometimes containing several egg-laying queens. Termites are sometimes called "white ants", though they are unrelated to true ants.Now a threat you can no longer afford to ignore.
Millions of these hidden invaders are silently at work right here in this area. Theyre probably in your neighborhood. Possibly already on your property. Theyre spreading relentlessly into old homes and new homes, large and small. What are your chances of being attacked? Just compare the termite to other major hazards you face as a homeowner.
Termites strike five times as many homes as fire.
Over 365,000 American homes will need the fire department this year. But termites will be discovered in more than 2,000,000 homes. About one out of fifty dwellings! Thats why termite protection is as important to you as your homeowners insurance policy.
Termites do more dollar damage than all tornadoes, hurricanes and windstorms combined.
Theyve become a national calamity, attacking buildings in every state except Alaska. They can do thousands of dollars in damage before you even know theyre around. Prevention is far better than the cure.
Termite insurance? Try to buy it! Practically impossible! But dont panic. You can have low-cost, long-lasting termite prevention right now.
As local pest control specialists, Instant Pest Control Inc., will bring you this protection. If you dont have termites, youll be surprised how economically you can have a preventive treatment. And one treatment lasts for years. On the other hand if termites are discovered, dont be frightened into doing the wrong thing. Termites work slowly. Youve got plenty of time to get the upper hand with chemical control.
