Termites can be a frustrating problem, costing you a lot of money in repairs while also damaging the structure of your home or business. While there are several different species of termites throughout the world, in Southern California you are more likely to deal with the drywood termite. Let’s take a closer look at drywood termites in San Diego and learn how you can get rid of them.
Understanding the Drywood Termite
Unlike other termites, like the subterranean termite, drywood termites do not require soil. As their name would suggest, instead of living underground, drywood termites live in small social colonies in undecayed wood with very low moisture, including dead trees, stumps, or supports for your home.
The drywood termite’s diet consists almost entirely of wood, though they may consume other cellulose material. This includes wood from houses, telephone poles, and furniture.
Drywood termites are most often found in subtropical regions and humid areas along the coast, making most of Southern California prime territory. They can usually be found in attics or around exposed exterior wood.
Drywood Termites Treatment
If you’re wondering how to get rid of drywood termites, Eliminite Termite Services is here to help with comprehensive services. Our drywood termite treatment starts with a complete inspection using cutting edge technology from Termatrac to accurately identify the extent of any infestation and locate nests and access points non-invaseively. That means we don’t have to break down any walls or rip up floorboards.
From there, we can apply our patented D-Liminite Orange Oil treatment. This solution uses orange oil as its main active ingredient. It’s an effective, long-lasting drywood termite treatment, and unlike other harsh chemicals used in termite control, D-Liminite is completely safe for humans and pets. No need to pack your bags during treatment. You can stay in your home while we apply D-Liminite Orange Oil. Best of all, it’s completely eco-friendly, ensuring that it does no harm to the environment.
We don’t just stop there. After we’ve solved your termite problem, we can perform repairs on your home to fix the damage that the drywood termites caused. For added peace of mind, we can reinforce potential access points to prevent termites from returning in the future.
