How did I get Drywood Termites?
Drywood Termites love to nest, feed, and live within wooden structures, or furniture with very low moisture content during their swarming season which is typically during the late summer months. Unlike those termites with the large mounds, drywood termites do not require any contact with the soil to survive. Since they do not require any soil, they have the ability to tunnel into your wooden structures for extended periods of time, which can cause severe internal damage to your property if left untreated. When these termites burrow into your structure, they tend to block off their entry point, so it is recommended that you contact one of our professionals if you believe you may have a nest on your property. Contact A-1 Bonded Termite Inc. for removal of drywood termites in Anaheim to keep your structures safe from these pesky termites.
Signs of Drywood Termites:
Just like all animals, drywood Termites leave feces behind when they are done feeding, mating, or burrowing. These droppings are called “frass” and are distinguishable from other animal’s droppings because it looks like small wood colored pellets mixed with pepper. At the first sign of termite frass, please contact A-1 Bonded Termite to remove drywood termites in Anaheim.
When a drywood termite’s colony has hit maturity, the queen of the colony will encourage other termites to mate, these bugs that are attracted to the queen are called flying termites, and are very noticeable when there is an infestation present. These swarms can also lose their wings, so keep an eye out for any discarded wings.
When termites burrow into your drywood, they tend to leave spaces behind your walls. These spaces can cause air pockets to form within your dry wall, and in term take in moisture through these points, creating bubbles and cracks in your paint.
