Did you know…
That more than 600,000 U.S. homes suffer from termite damage – totaling more than $5 billion annually?
This is more than the damage caused by all fires, earthquakes, and most natural disasters combined. More than 2 million homes require termite treatment each year. Homeowners insurance can help recover losses from fires, floods, and earthquakes, but it is almost impossible to get insurance against termites. (www.npmapestworld.com)

What Attracts Termites to My Property?
Almost every structure is a potential home for termites, since what they need most is wood and moisture. Even when a property is stone or brick, wood can be found in the structural supports. Anything that comes into contact with the soil is a potential entry point for termites – including outdoor fences. Foundation cracks, plumbing/roofing leaks, faulty downspouts& gutters, ground sloping toward the foundation, insufficient ventilation, rigid foam insulation, firewood, wooden steps, decks, landscaping timbers: all can encourage termite colonization. Termites build mud tubes which they use as a highway between the ground and your home or business.
How Will Hopper Treat My Termite Problem?
First, a licensed and certified inspector will conduct a thorough inspection of your property. After a thorough evaluation of your property, we will recommend a treatment plan tailored to your situation, your home or business’s construction, where it is situated and the degree of infestation.
At Hopper our professional technicians are trained in the latest treatment techniques and use the most up to date equipment and environmentally responsible materials, such as Termidor®, and Premise® to solve your problem.
How Does Treatment Protect Your Home or Business From Termites?
After Termidor or Premise is applied, termites that contact it transfer it to every other termite they in turn contact in a unique process called the “Transfer Effect.” And because Termidor and Premise are engineered to be slow-acting, termites have ample time to spread it throughout their entire termite population. This material eliminates the colony in 3 months or less – 2 to 6 times faster than the best bait systems. We may also use other materials that are equally effective.
