Eastern Subterranean Termites
As their name indicates the type of termites we deal with in New England are Subterranean and are typically moving around in the soil. Termites are an important part of recycling in the environment but are a structural destructive force in your home or business. Termites enter your home through a crack less than 1/16th of an inch. In a colony you will find workers, soldiers and reproductive termites. Termites require a moist environment in order to survive so they need to get back down into the soil to re-moisturize their bodies. In the springtime a “swarm” of winged termites can be seen inside or outside of your home.
We Have Found Termites Damaging:
Since termite colonies are in the ground or must return to the ground, the full area around the foundation is treated to create a barrier around your home. The chemical used (a termiticide) cannot be detected by the termites. Through there social interactions, they pass this material on to each other. Slowly knocking off each member of the colony in such a way that they don’t realize they are in danger. Are you beeing bugged? Contact us at FORDSHOMETOWN.COM or call today: 1-800-649-9992
The stories traditionally associated with St. Patrick, including the famous account of his banishing all the snakes from Ireland, are false, the products of hundreds of years of exaggerated storytelling.
Our pretty Donna White showed off our snake at the Hanover Theater. Some were very interested in the snake and others ran in the other direction. Donna is very brave!

We often get calls when customers bring out their holiday decorations and find mice droppings or mouse nests. To avoid this, put your holiday decorations in sealed containers. Never pack away edible decorations or wreaths with nuts or seeds as this gives mice a food source and can cause moths and beetles.
