Annual Termite Treatment
Our homes are way more vulnerable than we may genuinely realize. Between worrying about mold, damages, and repairs, the lists can begin to add up. More concerns go into owning a house than we can handle by ourselves. Annual termite treatments will help stay on top of problems before they get out of hand.
Termites are wood-destroying insects because they are capable of chewing and digesting wood as a food source. Every termite colony has a very detailed process that holds firm against the test of time. They are the real masters of their craft, but fortunately, so are we!
Types of Wood Destroying Pests in California
Annual termite treatment will help protect your home against the following types of common termites.
The most common type of termite in the United States, Subterranean is most likely the termites to invade your home. Their colonies can easily reach population numbers in the millions, expediting the structural damage process.
Any dampwood termite appearance can mean a sign of severe water damage. As the name suggests, dampwood termites will mostly appear when there is a lot of severe water damage. They usually are more significant than most other termites, but their colony size is typical of a smaller number.
Drywood termites do not require much moisture to infest an area; they will get water from the wood. Their colony sizes are smaller than the underground, but they can grow into tens of thousands of people.
Other Wood-Destroying Insects in California
Slightly less destructive than a termite and a little less known pest is the Powderpost beetle is another wood-destroying pest. They don’t work in colonies like some other pests, but they are known for targeting hardwood such as hardwood floors, crates, and anything made of hardwood specifically. They lay their larvae in cracks of wood, and their larvae will tunnel into the wood.
Unlike termites, Carpenter Ants don’t actually eat wood, but instead, they chew and tunnel through it. Their colonies can reach sizes up to 10-20,000 and even in some cases 50,000! Carpenter Ants are a little bit messier since they don’t consume the wood; typically, they leave around small piles of sawdust. They are much bigger than most other ants, making them easy to spot with the naked eye.
