Summary of the Termite Pledge Video
Hello, this is Darrell with BUGCO Pest Control and today we’re going to be talking about BUGCO’s Termite Pledge. BUGCO Pest Control’s Termite Pledge is a service we provide to our customers to save them from costly termite treatments and repairs from termite damage.
To qualify for our quarterly termite pledge, you would need to sign up for BUGCO’s Residential Service and Convenience Agreement and correct any conducive conditions on your property. But what are conducive conditions?
Conducive Conditions Attract Termites
These are conditions that might increase your chances of getting termites. If we find these conducive conditions, we’ll inform you about what needs to be corrected to qualify for our termite pledge.
Some conditions include high soil, such as soil or mulch covering the weep holes and your foundation line. You would need to either pay for a termite spot treatment in these areas or lower the soil to where at least four to six inches of your foundation is exposed so we can do a visual inspection.
The technician Chris, was on time and did a great job of explaining the treatments for everyday pest and termites. The price wasn’t bad and they offer a military discount! I will continue to use them for my pest control services.

Excess moisture is another conducive condition. Moisture or water sources that puddle against or along the side of your home or under your home would need to be corrected so that it can dry out. You would need to ensure better drainage around your home or repair any leaky pipes or spigots.
Heavy foliage, such as bushes, vines or trees make it impossible, or extremely challenging, for us to do a visual inspection. You would need to remove, relocate or trim back vegetation from the home, so we can easily inspect.
Debris stacked against or stored against the home, such as lumber would need to be moved or relocated away from the home. Wood rot around the windows, eaves or at the base of the siding is another conducive condition. Usually this requires replacement of the rotten wood or the reapplication of proper paint to cover up this area. These conditions will lead you to getting termites sooner rather than later.
San Antonio is a Texas Hotspot for Termites
According to BASF, the creators of Termidor, there are more than 25 termite colonies living within every acre of land and cause over $5 billion in damage in the United States alone each year. The typical suburban home ranges from 1/15 of an acre to a quarter acre. This means everyone is susceptible to getting termites, if you do not have protection.
The average residential termite treatment costs about a thousand dollars for a one-time treatment. Annual warranty renewals range from a hundred dollars and up. That means that if you get your termite pledge through BUGCO Pest Control, you could pay as little as 27 cents per day for your termite protection.
If we were to find subterranean termites while performing our quarterly service, we will draw up a treatment graph and treat for termites at no additional cost to you. If you have any additional questions or would like to schedule an appointment, please call us at 210-340-2847. Thank you.
