Long-Term Termite Protection For Virginia Homes & Businesses
Termites are one of the most destructive pests on earth, infesting approximately 600,000 homes and causing an estimated five billion dollars in structural damages each year in the United States alone - meaning that they are responsible for more economic damage every year than hurricanes, tornadoes, and windstorms combined.
Unfortunately, Virginia’s climate and location make it a perfect breeding ground for termite species, especially in the spring and summer months. Worse, because so much of their activity goes on underground, an infestation can go on for months or even years before the property owner even becomes aware of it, by which point catastrophic damage has already been done.
If you haven’t taken measures to protect your property from termites, you could inadvertently be setting yourself up for a nasty (and costly) surprise.
RichPro Pest Management has been protecting homes and businesses in the Greater Richmond and Central Virginia area from termites and other pests since 1975. If you’re a Richmond-area homeowner or commercial property manager looking for long-term protection for what’s most important, we’ve got you covered.
How RichPro Pest Management Fights Termites
The severity and impact of a termite infestation can vary significantly based on a number of factors. A complex problem often requires a complex solution, which is why RichPro offers a number of different services built to help control existing termite infestations and prevent future ones from ever happening.
You can never fully fight a problem if you don’t know what you’re up against, so the first step in our termite treatment process is a thorough inspection of the home or property.
Our team of licensed and certified professionals know all the likely hiding spots and warning signs to look for: if there is any damage or evidence of activity in or around the property, we’ll find it and provide documentation in our report. We’ll also inform you of any conditions we find that could be conducive to termite activity so that you can protect yourself in the future.
After determining the full extent of the infestation, we work with the property owners to find the best solution. For homes already suffering from a termite infestation, RichPro’s termite treatment comes in two options: Termite Defender™ and Termite Defender™ Plus with Sentricon.
Termite Defender™ includes a complete treatment of the property, an annual interior and exterior inspection, and preventative treatment every five years.
Termite Defender™ Plus With Sentricon includes a complete treatment of the property, an annual interior and exterior inspection, installation of the Sentricon System with Always Active. For qualifying homes, RichPro will include a termite damage warranty.

Perhaps the biggest factor that makes termites so destructive is that, in most cases, considerable damage has already occurred by the time the property owner becomes aware that they have an infestation on their hands. Prevention is therefore key, and so in addition to treating existing structures, we also offer pre-treatments for new buildings under construction.
Completed during the construction phase, our pre-treatment process helps ensure your big investment doesn’t end up costing a lot more than you expected. We likewise offer soil and wood pre-treatments to be completed after foundation and backfill, typically prior to slab or framing, both of which also carry a five-year termite warranty.
RichPro completes all required HUD forms for both types of pre-treatments and provides them to the builders, including NPMA-99-A and NPMA-99-B forms.
