FAIRFAX, VA—The National Pest Management Association (NPMA) has declared March 15-21 as Termite Awareness Week to help educate consumers about termites and to help ensure their homes don’t become bait for these saw-toothed pests.
“Termites cause costly property damage to the tune of $5 billion a year, and what’s worse, the damage typically isn’t covered by homeowners insurance,” says Missy Henriksen, vice president of public affairs for the NPMA. “Because the extent of termite destruction isn’t immediately noticeable, it’s crucial to take preventative steps at every stage of homeownership.”
The NPMA issued a media release to garner media attention, and pest management firms such as Braman Termite and Pest Elimination are spreading the word through their own media releases based on the information.
