Effective Termite Prevention

Termites cause more than a billion dollars in property damage each year in America. A single termite colony can consume the equivalent of a 2×4 plank of wood. This may not sound that destructive until you consider that piece of wood could be the support beam for a load-bearing wall.

Termimesh is made of high-grade stainless steel, which makes it very resistant to the elements and unlikely to need repair or replacement. It is also covered by an extensive manufacturer’s guarantee, and has a proven track record of 100% effectiveness.

We are happy to perform routine inspections of your home for termites or other wood eating pests. However, the Termimesh system is so effective you can rest easy knowing it’s there.

What is Termimesh?

Preventing termites with Termimesh means focusing on the areas where termites will try to enter your home. Termimesh is a non-chemical, permanent barrier that is used in key areas in the home’s slab. It’s essentially a non-corrosive, ultramarine-grade stainless steel barrier to keep termites out.

Termites colonize in the soil and enter buildings through only 1/64th of an inch that come into contact with soil.

During the construction phase, ABC can install Termimesh around service wires and pipes connecting to your home which is then sealed inside concrete, ensuring that termites cannot enter.

Keep Your Home Termite Free

There are a number of methods for preventing termites from ever getting a foothold on your property well after Termimesh has been installed. These solutions include:

“I have been using ABC for a couple years now and always have a great experience with the technicians but today I had the pleasure of Paul’s service. He went above and beyond explaining, listening and sharing. He even found a possible entry point under the kitchen sink. He was so kind and courteous and I really appreciate his time. He was quick, efficient and thorough and explained next steps and reminded me of what is included in my service! Paul deserves all the kudos & more!! Thank you for the FIVE STAR SERVICE, Paul!
