Nest Pest Control Will Destroy Termites
And Keep Them From Coming Back
Termites are a threat to homeowners in 49 states. Only Alaska has no termites. But they have other problems, like grizzly bears.
Since termites are here, there are many pest control companies trying to get you to buy control services from them. Nest Pest Control has been exterminating termites for more than 20 years and has successfully protected thousands of homes in that time.
We are constantly researching new techniques and if they are worthwhile, we implement them. For instance, we utilize a technique that prevents infestations in the ground and only very rarely do we need to tent a home for fumigation (it usually doesn’t need to be done except as a last resort) So our clients lives are disrupted far less than with many of our competitors.
We also offer termite inspections if you are selling a home. If you need one, click to find out more about our WDI report process.
It’s Always Termite Season in DC
When you think of termites, you might assume they hibernate in the winter. Some species do, but many , if they’ve found a good food source, just keep on munching. The best food source for termites? The cellulose in wood; and our houses have a lot of it.
A long time ago the only way to get rid of termites was to tent a house and fog them to exterminate termites. These days we take a better approach. In fact, if you didn’t know what to look for, you might never notice a treatment being done, especially a preventive treatment!
We treat the exterior of your home and make sure that there is a good termite barrier for many feet outward. And downward. Many termite species are subterranean (look at out FAQs) and these do the most damage.
Our treatments are effective, they last for years, and are very competitive on prices. Reach out to us and set up a time to discuss this new method of treating termites and protect your home ASAP.

Did you know…
There are thousands of termite species in the world and they can be pretty amazing creatures! In Africa, for instance, there are termites that build huge mounds where they live. Some termites even practice rudimentary farming techniques as they cultivate fungi and even grass for food.
When a swarm of termites move to a new location, they fly. When they find the new place to be they remove their wings because they won’t need them anymore. This is why you will often find piles of wings where termites might enter a new structure, such as at windo and door frames.
Lots of people have lots of questions for us. Sometimes they are about specific things like termite control. Sometimes the questions are about Nest Pest Control in Washington DC or specific policies. Here are a couple of questions you might have. If you need to know anything else, please call us!
How much does termite service cost?
Termite service costs depend on a few factors like how big is the infestation? What kind of termites are affecting you? And do you need to exterminate or prevent an infestation? Also, the size of the house or property is a factor. Prevention is always the less expensive, especially when you account for damage to a home.
We also offer WPI inspections which are about $600.

What kind of termites are there?
There are over 50 species of termites in North America, classed into three major groups.
Subterranean termites: These are the termites that cause most of the destruction to properties in the US. On the order of 70%-80%, depending on where you live. Nest Pest Control targets these termites aggressively.
Drywood Termites. These termites often form several colonies in a single home. They cause about 20% of the damage to structures here in America. They particularly damage wood in furniture, framing and flooring.
Dampwood termites are responsible for the reaminder of the economic destruction in the USA. They primarily eat wet wood, as their name suggests. To lessen their effect on homes, keep woodpiles dry and removed from structures. Seal and paint wood on your home and, of course, get Nest Pest Control to proactively prevent an infestation.
By the way, there are over 1000 species of termite in Africa. Some of them even farm fungus and grass!
