Termites cause more than a billion dollars of estimated damage each year in the United States, which is more than fire, flood, and other natural disasters combined. Since most people cite their first home as their single largest investment, and since most homeowner’s insurance policies do not cover termite damage, it is critical that you take the proper steps to protect your home.

In the Eastern United States, subterranean termites, formosan termites, dampwood termites and drywood termites all present a significant threat to home and business owners, especially if left unmanaged. Since 1944, Dodson Pest Control has been developing the most comprehensive termite treatment and termite control solutions to protect your home or business. If you suspect that termites have already set up nests and are causing damage, contact your local Dodson Pest Control office and bring in the termite control specialists for an inspection.


It takes a licensed, trained professional to spot termite damage. Termites seldom break through the surface of wood but instead hollow it out from the inside, leaving most of the damage undetected. Because there are so few visible warning signs, termite activity and the resulting damage can go undetected for years. No matter what separates the wood from the soil—including concrete slabs—termites can work their way into the structure through an opening as small as 1/64 of an inch or roughly the thickness of a standard business card.



At Dodson, we protect your home against termites by using the most effective termiticide available called Termidor, which is applied to the ground around and underneath your home. Each termite that comes in contact with Termidor also becomes a carrier and quickly spreads the termiticide to the rest of the colony. Since it is undetectable by termites, they cannot find a way around the treatment zone, thus making it a highly effective treatment.
