GADSDEN, Ala. - May 29, 2019 - PRLog -- North Alabama has just experienced one of the worst Termite Swarm Seasons in the past few years.  Each year when a termite colony reaches around 6 years old, one specific caste of the termites will swarm out of the colony in an effort to create new colonies of termites.  For a Termite Swarm to be successful, the weather has to cooperate and this year, it was a perfect storm for termites.  Custom Pest Control in Boaz Alabama reported phone calls from residents experiencing problems as early as March 3rd and has continued into May.  "This has been a very busy season for termites and we have seen homeowners experiencing excessive damage to their homes because the termites didn't make their presence known in the past few years", states Troy Blair of Custom Pest Control in Boaz.

Most homeowners are unaware that there are several castes of termites that live together in a termite colony, but only one of the termite castes can damage your home, and that is the worker termite.   All the others serve a purpose to keep the colony thriving, but the worker is the small one, about the size of a grain of rice that you will never see and is blind and works 24 hours a day 365 days a week, eating wood and digesting it and feeding the entire colony.  A colony of termites requires around a pound of wood a week to survive.  Some of that they get from nature, but to a blind termite, most homes look like a dead tree fallen on a rock and the termite does his job in helping nature return that wood to the soil by eating the cellulose out of it.   Statistics show that termites do more damage to homes in Alabama than fire and tornadoes combined each year.  With the absence of swarmer's over the past few years, a lot of homeowners haven't realized their home was being eaten and have suffered substantial damage.

Swarmers will go away on their own, but the termite queen can live up to 35 years making it a dangerous adversary because she requires the workers to feed her and the rest of the colony.

The best way to know if you have a problem is to hire an experienced company to inspect your property from top to bottom.  Custom Pest Control is currently offering a free service to the community during June and July of this year for anyone who requests it, can have their home inspected and receive a detailed written report of the finding. Not only do our trained technicians crawl and inspect under your home, but we use state of the art detection devices to find exactly where the termites are hiding.

No matter how old your home is, where it's located, or how long it's been constructed, it is susceptible to being attacked by termites. Every year, they cause billions of dollars in damage in the U.S. alone – damage homeowners insurance won't cover. For you, this can mean huge repair and restoration costs. Chances are, you won't see any evidence of termites until it's too late.

Troy and Angela Blair, Owners of Custom Pest Control established their business in Boaz because they love the community and are offering this service as a community service.  Both have a heart for the community with Troy Blair Pastoring Blessed Hope Church in the Asbury Community and  Angela (Hopper) Blair started her service to the community as a Registered Nurse for her mother, Audrey Cole, when she owned the Albertville Nursing home and continued her nursing career for the past 22 years in this community.  Angela comes from a family with a heart for service with her twin brother Mark Hopper working in law enforcement, and after working his way through law school became Assistant DA to Steve Marshall and now has a private practice in Guntersville.  Angela's Son and Daughter in law, Brad and Gabby Watson, both attorneys in Albertville have been nationally recognized for their work in assisting immigrants to obtain legal status as citizens with her other Daughter, Ashley (Watson) Mason following in her mother's footsteps as a nurse working in the nursing home industry.

"We provide several indigent programs for those less fortunate that may not be able to afford professional pest control services offered by other companies, so we look at each case on an individual basis and don't want anyone to have to live with bugs.  We will find a program that people can afford" Says Troy Blair, He also states "We offer standard 50% discount for activity military and law enforcement officers and have several programs with local charities who contact us with indigent people who need our service but can't afford it, No child should have to go to sleep and worry about bugs crawling on them at night."
