Drywood termites can be either locally treated by various methods or for a large infestation, where multiple colonies are in the same structure, fumigated. A full-structure termite fumigation in San Diego can ensure the elimination of destructive drywood termites from your home, boat or business.
Fumigation is a procedure using tarpaulins to cover and seal your structure, allowing a fumigant to penetrate the wood timbers to destroy the termites. You may already have termites and not even know it. That’s because one of the survival methods of drywood termites is to conceal themselves in the inaccessible areas of your home – eating it from the inside out.
Signs of a Termite Infestation
Here are a few of the most common signs of a drywood termite infestation.
- Discarded wings of swarming drywood termites may be found in windowsills, in and around light fixtures, in the attic, or in similar places where swarmers can exit a colony.
- Little piles of pellets, called frass, can also be found in these areas.
- Damaged wood that is severely blistered or sounds hollow when tapped.
- Pin-sized holes in your walls and woodwork where termites “kick out” frass.
- Live, swarming (flying) termites in your home.
Have a Termite Infestation and Need Fumigation?
Buying a home is probably the biggest investment most people will ever make. For many, the home is an extension of themselves. It is more than just a place to sleep, cook, and get out of the elements. It’s also a place for you to freely express who you are, what you appreciate in life, and what gives your life meaning. It’s a place for you to raise a family and build a life for yourself.
