Don't Let Termites Deter Your Home Purchase

Image
You have found the home of your dreams. You and your family will be closing in two weeks and can't wait to start making new memories. Visually, the home is perfect - the roof is sound, all the appliances are in working order, but the inspection report indicates termite infestation.

If not remedied properly, termites can be as as damaging to homes as floods and tornadoes. This does not mean you should break your contract on that dream house though.

If your pond or lake access point has dragonflies, don't get rid of them - they are doing their best to get rid of your mosquito population.
