If you think you’ve spotted Drywood termites in your home, you need termite control services immediately. The two biggest signs are swarms of reproductive males and females that fly out of the colony to mate, and collections of dry fecal pellets called “frass.” Spotting either of these telltale signs should be cause for grave concern, as Drywood termites can quickly damage your property, compromise the structural stability of your home, and cause unsafe living conditions. Pest control companies are really the only answer to this problem, and the quicker the better. If you’re still not convinced the problem is bad, or that the leading pest control methods are safe and effective, keep reading and you should see how important it is to take care of this problem with professional help immediately.
The Problem with Drywood Termites
In the best case scenario Drywood termites will cause some damage to your home that can be easily fixed by replacing part of the structural foundations, and in the worst case scenario the loss of property could be catastrophic and the structural instability could lead to fatalities. Any losses of home and safety are too much, though, so as soon as you see the problem it’s time to fix it. Drywood termites aggressively advance through the wood in a home, so it makes sense that your home pest control plan should be equally aggressive.
Your Termite Control Options
The good news is that you have options, so you can choose the services that are most appropriate for the level of infestation in your home.
- Foam Treatment – A high-quality foam can be used to treat the home in order to flush out termite infestations.
- Fumigation – This option is typically reserved for more extreme infestations, and it does cause quite a disruption, but when successfully implemented you can rest assured the termites will be completely gone.
- Localized Treatment – If you know exactly where the termite populations have infested your home, this type of treatment can be a viable option.
- Thermal Heat – The use of thermal heat can be a successful treatment for killing termites in the wood structuring, beams, walls, panels, and furniture of a home.
