A lot of people do not seem to realize just what a problem termites can be. Every year all across America termites eat away at peoples houses costing billions of dollars in damages. The people affected by these termites never thought it would happen to them and did not take any preventative measures to keep the termites from attacking their home in the first place.
You can do something about termites before they even attack your home and that is have your home checked every year. So many people do not do this and then they have their house attacked by termites.
