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.

Subterranean Termites

Subterranean Termites: Subterranean termites are the most widespread and destructive termite found in the US. These termites construct tunnels through soil to wood buried in the ground, or wood that is in direct contact with the ground. They require the soil to be moist or to have a source of water near by. They cause massive damage by weakening structural foundations and in some cases, can require a home or business owner to rebuild the structure or relay a slab. Subterranean termites are best treated with Altriset, Termidor, foam treatments and soil treatments.

Signs Of Termite Activity

Most termite species live underground. They seek moisture and position themselves near or underneath the foundation of your home. Common signs of an infestation include:

termite holes los angeles

Kick Out Holes - As termites tunnel through wood, they use kick out holes to discard fecal pellets and frass.

termite pellets los angeles

Pellets - Termites remove waste as they tunnel, creating small mounds of fecal pellets underneath kick out holes.

termite wood damage los angeles

Weakened Wood - Long, thin cracks and sagging can mean wood has been hollowed out by termites.

termite mud tubes los angeles

Mud Tubes - These pencil-width paths lead from the nest to your home. Check the surrounding land, outer foundation wall, any crawl spaces and your basement.

termite swarm los angeles

Swarms - Reproductive termites will swarm primarily between spring and early summer depending on location. Check for this type of termite and the wings they shed. Shed wings can often be found near windowsills, as winged termites are attracted to light.

termite conducive conditions los angeles

Conducive Conditions - Termites are attracted to certain conditions that help assist their development. Look for wood in direct contact with soil, and high moisture in and around your home. Correct these conditions to prevent further termite entry into your home.

Termite Inspection

Whole Structure Treatment

Only heat treatments and fumigation can truly eliminate termites.

The state of California has only approved heat treatments and fumigation as primary treatments for Drywood termites. Local treatments can eliminate isolated infestations of termites, but for complete control we offer heat treatments and full struture fumigation. After inspection, your technician will advise you of all wood destroying pest findings and determine which types of treatments are the best solution to control your infestation.

Local Treatment

Non-repellent termiticides prevent and control termite infestations.

Non-repellent termiticides stop subterranean termite feeding within hours of exposure. The first termites to come into contact with the treatment are exposed through contact and ingestion and carry it to the colony on their bodies to affect other unexposed termites. Delayed toxicity means exposed termites that have stopped feeding can still walk, groom and aggregate in groups for an extended period of time, allowing treatment to further spread among colony members. Non-repellent termiticies controls termites in less than three months and provides long-lasting residual structural protection.

Termite Warranty

Both termites swarm in the Los Angeles area all year long. We offer a 2 year warranty on all whole-structure termite treatments. To prevent termites from returning, we also offer continuing protection plans. A technician will regularly inspect to your property for termites and apply preventative treatments where neccessary.
