An insurance policy issued by a pest control company. There are two varieties.

Less common today is the repair and retreatment bond, which will also pay for any repairs necessitated by termite damage.Virtually every bond today excludes Formosan termites from their coverage. The Formosan termite is a particularly voracious termite that exists in large colonies and eats practically anything.
