Bugco Termite Pledge
Our Termite Pledge Gets You Ahead
Of all the varieties of pests in Houston, termites are both some of the most common and potentially most damaging. What’s worse, getting treatment for an infestation can also be quite costly, making inadequate preparedness against termites an expensive mistake.
BUGCO is the best choice for termite control in the Houston area. Our Termite Pledge gives home and business owners an incentive for keeping their home as termite-proof as possible. By qualifying, you get any necessary termite treatment included in our quarterly service at no extra cost. Keep reading to find out how you can qualify!
A Destructive and Expensive Pest
Termites damage approximately 600,000 American homes every year and can be found in every state except Alaska. They burrow into lumber and trees, usually entering them from the ground. They especially like the warm and humid climate of Houston, which poses a real problem for local home and business owners. Once an infestation is underway, it can take a great deal of money and effort to eradicate it.
The average residential termite treatment costs above $1,000 for a one-time treatment and additional warranty renewals range from $100 and up. What is more, many homeowner’s insurance policies do not cover termite damage. So, undertaking the proper precautions against termites can mean significant savings in the long run!
BUGCO Pest Control’s Termite Pledge is a service we provide to our customers to save them from costly termite treatments and repairs. To qualify, customers must be enrolled in our Residential Pest Control and Convenience Agreement and correct any conducive conditions on the property that make it especially vulnerable to termites.
Four major conducive conditions must be avoided to qualify for our Termite Pledge. First, high soil that covers up your home’s foundations or any “weep holes” can allow termites access to the lumber of your home’s structure. Similarly, moisture or water sources that puddle against or along the side of your home (or under your home if you have a pier and beam foundation) can give them an easy point of entry.
Any clutter against the exterior of the house, such as heavy foliage or stacked firewood, makes thorough termite inspection impossible and needs to be removed or relocated. And finally, wood rot around windows, eaves, or at the base of the siding usually requires replacement of rotten wood or the reapplication of proper paint to cover up this area.

Compared to the typical costs of termite treatment in the Houston area, enrollment in our quarterly Termite Pledge can reduce your expenses for termite protection to as low as 27 cents per day.
