Although termites are not the most glamorous of topics, learning the difference between a termite bond and termite letter is important when calling to request the service.
A termite bond is a contract between a homeowner and a termite control company. The bond allows the homeowner to pay what is essentially a retainer fee to a pest control company. The bond outlines the frequency and type of treatment to be provided, and may include re-treatment and repair guarantees at no additional charge.
A termite letter is often referred to as the Official Georgia Wood Infestation Inspection Report in Georgia. The termite letter is really more of a report than a letter. It is a report compiled by a licensed pest control / termite company that states that a licensed technician has inspected the home for termites and other wood destroying organisms. It then presents the findings and any conducive conditions.
