Hello from A.N.T.T.S = A North Texas Termite Specialist. Just a quick note to wish all of our Dallas and Fort Worth, TX pest control customers Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! We hope that the economy dose not have it’s claws into your families wallet like it does most. We are keeping hopes up around here that things will turn around soon. There are a few things for A.N.T.T.S to be thankful for this year. One big thing is the rise in refinance loans being done. We work closely with Texas Lending and they have been great to us this year. Just about every FHA loan requires a termite inspection which is not a bad thing for the buyer to have done. How many times does the average homeowner inspect his home for termites, the answer is none. So when we go out to a home there is a good chance we will find termites, conducive conditions or carpenter ants and it’s only a matter of time before these wood destroying insects reap havoc on a home. There are a few things you as a borrower can do to help your chances on getting a clear termite report. First of all remove that firewood pile from next to your foundation and secondly trim those trees of the roof. These are the biggest reasons for a bad termite report. Other things like wood to ground contact, form boards left in place are conditions created by the builder that need mechanical removal or treatment. We find that most conducive termite conditions are created by the homeowner and can be easily corrected. If times are tough and you find that a refinance will help you get though until the economy picks up give us a call 817-366-3130 and we can talk you through preparing for a WDI Termite Inspection. or visit us at and we will be happy to help you out. Merry Christmas to all and have a safe New Year! A.N.T.T.S
