Exterminating Termites

10/07/2020 BPM 0 Comment

If you think you have a termite infestation in your house, you will need a structural pest control professional inspection.

If the inspection finds evidence of drywood termites, you have several options, depending on the degree of infestation. Fumigation and heating of the entire house are the only options that ensure eradication in the entire structure. If the infestation is contained in a small area, local or spot control may be effective – however, hidden infestations in other parts of the structure will not be eradicated.

If you see the following signs in your house, you might have termites:

  • sawdust-like droppings
  • dirt or mud-like tubes or trails on the
    structure
  • damaged wood members (like window
    sills)
  • swarming winged insects within the
    structure, especially in the spring or fall
