Drywood Termite Removal Process
Different species of termites requires specific treatment processes so the inspection is used to identify the type of termite invading your home. Once we have determined which termite species is living at your location, our experts come up with a treatment to destroy them.
Drywood termites cannot be destroyed using soil treatments because these pests actually live in the wood they are digesting. Therefore, our experts will use one or more of the following treatment strategies, depending on whether or not your home is infected by a single colony or multiple ones: whole house fumigation, liquid nitrogen, insecticides, or spot treatments using heat, shock, or insecticides.
With small colonies, spot treatment is often the recommended treatment. Not only does it save money for the customer, but it also streamlines the process. If more than one colony is present and/or the infestation is widespread, whole house fumigation might be used. This type of treatment requires the placement of an airtight tent over the structure and the release of a noxious gas (Vikane). Insecticides are used in spot treatments, and they penetrate the wood, effectively killing the termites.
The likelihood of a new infestation of termites is a real possibility as long as the same conditions that attracted the first group are allowed to remain. Our technicians provide educational tips that you can use to protect your home against this type of invader.
