Terms & Conditions

Elimination of the Termite Colony shall be defined as “when Subterranean Termite Activity is absent in the Recruit HD Bait Devices®, where feeding activity is evident in the bait device, and no other cause can be determined to have interrupted the termite feeding activity, i.e. Pesticides, Lawn Care Materials, Excessive Water Sources, Weather Conditions, Disturbance of the Sentricon® Stations, etc. Once Termite Colony Elimination has been established and all existing termite damage has been repaired, the treated structure (may/will) be eligible for up to $250,000 in New Termite Damage Repairs.

Future & Existing Damage (New Customers and Bust-A-Bug Retreatment Warranties): Bust-A-Bug is not responsible for the repair of either visible damage or hidden damage as of the date of this Agreement whether listed on the attached inspection graph or not.

Therefore, the Purchaser agrees to maintain the premises free from these moisture conditions by making timely repairs to the structure. These areas are not covered by the Purchaser’s Warranty until such time as repairs are made & Bust-A-Bug has been provided the opportunity to reinspect the areas. The Purchaser also agrees to purchase any required service to restore the termite treatment to original specifications.
