How did I get Drywood Termites?
In short, drywood Termites love to nest, feed, and live within wooden structures. Furniture with very low moisture content is preferred. 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. Moreover, this can cause severe internal damage to your property if left untreated. When termites burrow into your structure, they tend to block off their entry point. It is for this reason we recommend that you contact one of our professionals if you believe you may have a nest on your property. In this case, contact A-1 Bonded Termite Inc. for removal of drywood termites in Anaheim. Keep your structures safe from these pesky termites.
Signs of Drywood Termites:
Just like all animals, drywood Termites leave feces behind when finished feeding, mating, or burrowing. In fact, these droppings, called “frass,” are distinguishable from other animal’s droppings because they look like small wood colored pellets mixed with pepper. At 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. For this reason, termites attracted to the queen grow wings, also known as flying termites, swarm in huge numbers. With that in mind, they are very noticeable when there is an infestation present. Their swarming season is typically during the late summer months. These swarms 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. Frequently, these spaces can cause air pockets to form within your dry wall. In turn, your walls in moisture through these points, creating bubbles and cracks in your paint.
Hollowed out Wall
Often times, if you realize a hollow sound when tapping your walls, where the wall was once firm, there is a termite problem. For termites within walls, we recommend reaching out to our specialists at A-1 Bonded Termite Inc. for an inspection of a possible drywood termites problem in Anaheim.
