Infested! That is what one might say about the home this Formosan termite tube was found under. Bert Snyder a.k.a. Bert the Bug Man, is Palmetto Exterminators’ resident Graduate Entomologist.
He came upon this monster termite tube under a house in West Ashley are of Charleston, South Carolina. The Formosan termite tube was the size of a grown man’s leg. The entire scope of damage found in the home will total between $50,000 – $75,000 dollars.
Unfortunately the home was not protected with termite warranty, and home owners insurance does not cover termite damage. Which means, the homeowners are responsible to pay for it themselves. Needless the say they are devastated. Had the home been under a termite bond, the pest control company would likely be paying for the damage.
