We will help you take the confusion and high cost out of termite control.
How to tell if your termites are Subterranean or Drywood Termites
The larger portion of termites in the USA are Subterranean termites, accounting for 90%, drywood termites only account for 10%. Knowing which ones you have will help you determine which products will be effective in helping you kill termites.
Living in a coastal area with high humidity you might be dealing with drywood termites. Subterranean termites have a mud tube and need to travel from food to soil using this tube, multiple times during the day. Drywood termites will usually be located in areas that do not have soil contact, they leave small holes and fecal pellets called frass.
How to Kill your Existing Subterranean or Drywood Termites
To be successful with your termite control and to prevent any further damage to your home or structure termite chemicals are necessary. A liquid termiticide, such as Premise, Talstar or Termidor are ideal for drenching the area around the slab foundation to create a barrier to prevent the colony from surviving. Bora Care is a wood preservative product that can be used on unpainted or sealed wood that will prevent the termites from being able to ingest the wood. Typically, the treatments are on the existing side of the termite infestation, but we do recommend that homeowners eventually treat all 4 sides to get the best protection.
