Top Hollywood Termite Inspections Company
Hollywood, FL Termite Inspection Services
With its abundance of sunshine and tropical climate, it’s no wonder that the state of Florida holds a special allure for its many residents. Unfortunately, that warm, humid climate is also what termites prefer. There are 4 species of termites that call the Sunshine State home – the Asian, dry wood, Formosan, and subterranean termite. The dry wood and subterranean varieties are the two most common that Florida Inspections Unlimited finds when conducting home termite inspections services in Hollywood, FL.
The Asian and Formosan termite populations have increased an estimated 30% over the past 5 years (2014-19). As one of nature’s most highly invasive pests, these wood destroying organisms (WDO) can enter a home through cracks as thin as a credit card and multiply rapidly into a massive destructive colony. Unfortunately, they literally go undetected while causing structural damage to your home. It is also why our thorough WDO inspection services in Hollywood, FL can protect the integrity of your home.

Important Facts about Termites
One of the most important facts about termites that every homeowner should be aware of is that these pests never stop eating. In fact, a colony that is well-organized usually contains about a million worker termites that can consume more than a hundred pounds of wood in a single year. Consequently, the average cost to treat termites and repair the structural damage they can cause often exceeds $10,000.
