Drywood Termite Control In Los Angeles, Orange & San Bernardino Counties
Drywood Termites: Drywood termites get their name because they live only in dry wood and require no connection to soil. Drywood termites are often introduced to a structure during their swarming season, which in California, can be a couple times a year or more, depending on dry weather cycles. These termites enter structures through cracks, knotholes or joints in the wood. They also bore into the wood, weakening structures from the outside. These termites can be identified by their smooth, clean holes in wood structures and “kick out” holes, where small piles of wood shavings collect. Drywood termites are best treated with Termidor, Foam treatments, Fumigation, Borate and Timbor. We also recommend chemical free Heat treatments, which can be localized and applied as a spot treatment.
Great service from a team that is amazing! Fair rates, detailed services but most of friendly. I had a termite problem in my livingroom, George explained to me that we can have the affected area treated without having to tent the whole house and at a very reasonable price. The tech came over and treated the area locally, neatly and quickly. I am very satisfied with their services and will continue refering them to my friends. Thanks again George. Testimonials

Drywood Termite Treatments
Fumigation is the best method to treat an entire structure for drywood termites. If your building has not been treated for termites in over 5 years and there are signs of a termite infestation, we may recommend fumigation. During this process, the structure will be tented and Vikane gas fumigant will be pumped through the building. Vikane penetrates the whole structure, eliminating drywood termites and any other pest that may infest the home. Tenants will need to vacate the home for approximately 3 days and prepare for the service by bagging food items.
Heat is a great way to eliminate termites without the use of pesticide. Heat, like fumigation, penetrates wall spaces and areas not easily accessed by traditional pesticides. Occupants do not need to leave for more than a few hours and no chemicals will be applied.
Local treatment is recommended for homes or buildings that have a minor drywood termite infestation. Since drywood termites swarm year-round in the Los Angeles area, they can return anytime, even to buildings that have had fumigation in recent years. Local treatment is when we take pesticides specifically designed for the spot treatment of drywood termites and apply them to the infested wood member.
