Termite Control: The Relentless Pest

I eat 24 hours a day and I never sleep.

What measures one centimeter in length, eats all day and costs Americans more than $5 billion in damage each year? If you guessed termites, you’re right.

I was here first!

Left untreated, termites do more damage to American homes than fire and flooding combined. Since most homeowners insurance won’t cover the cost, you could be out big bucks even before you realize you have a problem. Termites can hide and thrive in your basement or yard without you seeing any immediate signs of damage. As long as they have food, moisture, shelter and optimal temperature, they’ll be content to eat you out of house and home.

Termites feed on dead plants and trees and dead parts of living trees in wood and soil. They can tear large pieces of food and wreak havoc on property such as house foundations, furniture, shelves, books, carpets and insulation. When a colony matures, swarming winged termites can be seen around windows and doors. After mating, they find a new breeding site and create another colony, spreading infestation through multiple locations.

Quality termite protection.

Annual inspections and early detection are the keys to preventing and solving termite problems. If you see dropped wings, a swarm of winged insects around your home, droppings near doors and windows, cracked or bubbling paint or mud tubes running up walls and hanging from ceilings, you could have termites.


A professional inspection by a Clark’s technician will tell you what’s happening and recommend a treatment plan to stop termites in their tracks.

Cathy Abrams

March 3, 1955 - September 28, 2015


It is with a heavy heart that we inform you of the passing of our friend and Clark's family member Cathy Abrams. Cathy joined us in 2000 as our bookkeeper and for over 13 years helped lay the foundation for the success we now enjoy.


Cathy courageously battled various forms of cancer for a good part of nine years. She turned her misfortune into a tool to help others in similar circumstances. While in her own fight, she volunteered at the local cancer center and befriended many others, helping them to find the physical and spiritual strength to deal with this horrible disease. In the end, Cathy did her part to leave this world a better place for others, and we will miss her tremendously.
