Hello, I just purchased a home two months ago in Waldorf, MD and had a home/termite inspection. The inspection report did not discover any visual termites or termite damage. However, I recently had my back yard cleaned up of leaves and debris over by the shed in which we discovered termite damage to a piece of wood. I have had four different termite companies to come out and give an estimate(Terminex, Home Paramount, Certified Termite & Home Inspection, and Orkin). So far, three of the companies were charging about the same cost - $1200; Orkin however, was charging me $1700. The rep from Terminex had noticed the property had already been treated before due to the drill holes; however, since the previous owner had lived in the house for six years and did not have any treatment. I'm wondering which product is less toxic, but just as effective - termidor or premise? I don't want to use the baiting system because I don't want to attract something just to kill it.
