10 Termite Scams: Consumer Beware

#9.  Primary/Secondary Options



If you are in a single family residence, and the words you hear from the termite inspector is:

“Oh yeah, we can take care of this with a spot treat, no problem.”

Make sure the paperwork doesn't say that the local treatment is a
secondary recommendation,it may have NO Guarantee.  If the report shows that a fumigation is the primary recommendation but that a local treat is a non-guaranteed alternative.  This is a free ride for the termite company. They get paid for anything they do, with no concern of whether it works or not.
