Termites are a major problem for Maryland homeowners, especially because our moist climate, warm seasons and older homes with wooden construction present an inviting environment IMG 5784 1 1024x768 - Which Treatment Method is Most Effective for Termites?for damaging infestations. There are several signs of a termite infestation, including bulging ceilings and floors. If you spot any of these inside your home, you may want to call an exterminator, and then call Whitney, LLP to determine your legal rights for recovering compensation for the repair work.

When you work with a Maryland pest control company, you want to make sure that they are using the most effective treatment. After all, if termites are left behind, they can cause severe structural damage that could be very costly to repair. Most termite treatments involve insecticides of some kind, including baits attractive specifically to termites and barrier methods that aim to prevent the wood-destroying insects from infiltrating the perimeter of the property.

Liquid termiticides are applied to the soil surrounding your home. While in the past, liquid methods tended to repel termites rather than killing them, modern pest control practices include applying pesticides like fipronil, imidacloprid or chlorantraniliprole to the soil. Tunneling termites that contact these substances below the ground are killed. On the other hand, termite baits include slow-acting pesticides that can be installed under the ground outside the home and inside over visible termite tunnels. These often include hydramethylnon, hexaflumuron and noviflumuron.

Spot treatment is typically ineffective in treating termites. Because these wood-destroying insects hide in various places in the home, a whole-property treatment is generally necessary to make sure they are eliminated, along with guaranteed follow-ups if termites remain. However, some Maryland termite companies are looking to cut corners and maximize profits by using cheap and ineffective methods. As a result, you may face substantial termite damage repair bills. If a negligent pest control company failed to eliminate the termites in your home, the termite lawyers at Whitney, LLP can fight for the compensation you deserve.

Legal Responsibility for Termite Damage in Maryland

Unfortunately, some pest control companies do not live up to their promises and leave termites behind. Homeowners may think that the infestation has been eradicated only to discover structural infiltration that requires expensive termite damage repairs. They may find themselves paying thousands to termite damage contractors after pest control companies leave the insects behind. If a termite company is negligent and fails to perform its duties properly, you can take action to hold them financially accountable for your repair costs, subsequent extermination fees and the emotional distress caused by a termite infestation.
