Pest Control Companies Have Incentive to Not Find Termites
Always get a second opinion if you suspect termite infestation. The company that has your bond has a conflict of interest, they have an incentive not to tell the truth.
If the infestation happened because the treatment or inspection practices were negligent or fraudulent, would you actually expect your bondholder to accurately inform you how much damage they are responsible for? Asks principal litigator Tom Campbell of Campbell Law PC in Birmingham, Al.
This is part of the message Campbell provides in an interview with Andrea Ramey on Local 15 News in Mobile, Alabama.
He suggests you get a second opinion from another termite company, state regulator, or a knowledgeable lawyer.

In both the homes featured in this story, multiple Terminix employees and managers under reported damage. In addition, they covered up the fact that prior termite treatments fell far below standards required by Alabama’s pest control laws. Retreatments performed after the damage was discovered also fell below these standards. Both of these misdemeanors under the pest control laws in Alabama and most states.
