Drywood Termite Control for Residents of Temecula, Fallbrook, Oceanside, and the Surrounding Areas
Drywood termites are one of the most common types of termites found in Southern California. If not caught quickly and taken care of, they can do large amounts of damage to homes and businesses. If you notice any of the following, it’s likely that you have termites and need to contact us for Drywood termite control immediately:
1. Small piles and pellets that resemble sawdust collecting inside or around your house
2. Swarms of flying ant-like creatures around your home in the fall season
If you see one of the above indicators of termite infestation, you are advised to contact Knockout Pest Control to come out and perform a termite inspection, either of the entire house, or of the area of concern.
Termite Control Treatment for Drywood Termites
Our termite control experts provide multiple treatment methods for Drywood termite infestations. These termite control treatments include:
Localized Termite Treatments
Localized termite treatments can eradicate Drywood termite infestations that are confined to a specific, accessible area. Local termite control treatments, also known as spot treatments, include wood injection or topical application of termite control treatments. Localized spot treatments of targeted areas affected by Drywood termites can eliminate your Drywood termite infestation completely.
Termite Heat Treatment
Heat treatment is another effective treatment for Drywood termite infestations. Heat treatment can provide you with termite extermination without the use of chemicals. Termite heat treatment is a whole-area treatment that eliminates termites that you can see and those that you cannot see.
We perform heat treatment for commercial and residential termite control. We heat up the interior of the wood in the affected area with specialized equipment to about 135 degrees and hold it there for one hour. This treatment is considered a green termite control method. It is so safe for your home that you do not even have to leave while we are performing the heat treatment.
Tent fumigation for termites (also known as “tenting”) is the only option for whole-house termite control. Tent fumigation is necessary when a termite infestation is widespread, or if the termites are in an inaccessible location. Fumigation is a highly effective form of termite extermination, administered professionally by a termite control specialist.
The termite fumigation process involves tenting the area and administering an odorless, non-residual gas. The gas used for termite tent fumigation does not cling on furniture, carpets, walls, bedding, or any other part of your home.
Baiting for Termites
Typically, termite extermination by way of baiting is done in attics, sub-areas like basements, and in the areas around the perimeter of the home.
Wood Replacement & Construction Repairs
Termite infestations, dry rot, and fungus can compromise the integrity of wood components in your home. Because of this, wood repairs may be required to restore the structural integrity of your home or building, depending on the length of infestation, type of infestation, and extent of infestation.
