Drywood termites and termite damage can threaten the integrity of your largest investment – your home. What do you do when your pest management professional tells you that your home needs to be fumigated for drywood termites? Do not worry – you are not alone. Millions of homeowners battle termite infestations every year and many of their homes are treated by whole-structure fumigation with a gas fumigant. This is crucial to provide you peace of mind. Keep in mind that while many spot treatments only reach accessible areas in your home for partial or temporary results. Gas fumigant penetrates every inch of you home where termites hide.
Subterranean termites need contact with the soil to survive. They live in underground colonies or in wet areas aboveground. They build tunnels to reach food and every spring, groups of reproductive termites fly off to start new colonies
These are chemical barriers which keep subterranean termites from entering your structure through the foundation and plumbing walls. This prevents them from doing any hidden damage to your property.
In most cases termite and fungus damage occur on cosmetic lumber. Such as Fascia boards, roof eaves, patio covers, decks and sub flooring around bathrooms. If you see this evidence do not ignore the problem it could get worse over time and cost even more to repair.
Drywood Termites eat wood, wallpaper, plastics and fabric made from plants. They are usually found in dry wood and they do not require moisture or contact with the soil. (most common)
