Specialist Termite Exterminators
Out in nature, termites are a welcomed creature because they aerate the soil by tunneling, and they compost plant materials that they eat. However, they likely can’t tell the difference between what they “should” eat and your home, which has many different building materials that they seem to enjoy.
It doesn’t take long for them to cause damage, and by the time you spot one of them, it’s already too late. That is why more extermination experts agree that you should have a home inspection at least once each year.

Termite Inspection In Laguna Beach
When you get the news that you have drywood termites staying in your home, your initial reaction may be to want to bomb (bug bomb, that is) your home to eradicate it of any living thing. However, we like to start with a much less invasive and more effective method of local treatment. The first thing to know about drywood termites is that they are named as such because they don’t require rotting or damp wood to survive in the way that dampwood termites do. In addition, they can thrive in wood without the need for much water, soil, or anything else. Because of this, they are excellent stowaways that can enter your home by some pretty unexpected methods. All they need to bore into wood is a small opening or nook. These openings can even be as innocuous as wooden joints or sections under a roof. Another fun surprise is that they can easily live within wooden furniture and enter your home in that new table you got a great deal on at a yard sale.
As you can see, these are hearty little things, which is why you need an effective treatment that reaches them at their source. Identifying them is an important factor in knowing how and where to treat them. A telltale sign of drywood termites is frass pellets. Because they need room for their nests when boring into wood, they create holes where they kick their droppings out of the nests to provide ample space for their colonies, leaving mysterious piles around as their calling card.

Termites can do a lot of damage if left unchecked. Did you know they an raze a house to the ground, given enough time? Of course nobody gives them the opportunity but without regular checking it’s hard to know what is happening until you find droppings, something breaks or you look behind something that isn’t moved often.
Unfortunately they don’t leave calling cards letting you know they’ve invaded your home until they’ve eaten away at your property. We are experts in repairing the damage they cause. We will always attempt to repair whatever wood they have been busy chewing on unless you prefer to have it replaced of course. We’ll cut away anything that’s in too bad shape, fill or cover up the gap and then sand it down and paint over to match your existing woodwork. You can be sure that the area will look good as new and noone will ever know they (or we) were there!
Once you’ve had the termites removed from your home, you may be wondering what the next step is. Before you sit down and heave a sigh of relief, thinking that all of your problems are solved, it’s important to remember that, just as quickly as they were removed, termites can make a comeback like you’ve never seen. One particularly vulnerable area for this is the attic. Because it’s not a place in your home that you reside in on a regular basis, this makes it a peaceful and cozy place for them to hole up in, and there are usually plenty of excellent hiding places. The love to hide behind walls, and can leave traces that, to the untrained eye, may just appear to be water damage. Our experts, however, know to look for signs of things like drywall that is discolored and sagging, as well as wood damage that may otherwise go unnoticed.
Pre Treatment For New Construction
If you’re looking for a preventative measure for wooden areas such as your attic or lumber that is exposed, our licensed technicians may decide that Timbor preventative is the best solution for your needs. This can be utilized on structures that you want to have a preventative for, or items that are under construction and exposed, requiring extra care. When we come in with our termite rigs, we come prepared, with treatment tanks that can tackle any area, no matter the size.
If you’re wondering what Timbor is, it’s a special type of termiticide that is a termiticide, insecticide, fungicide, and wood preservative all rolled into one! Its special talent is protecting wood such as lumber from fungal decay and treating it to prevent termites from inhabiting it. Its powder comes from an ingredient called disodium octaborate tetrahydrate. This compound is a good choice in that it provides protection over a long period of time with no known termite resistance. It does not break down, ensuring that its effects are long-lasting. In addition, it can be drawn deeper into the surface it’s applied to over time so that it is truly protecting the wood from the inside-out. When it is sprayed onto the surface that needs to be treated, it goes down into the fibers of the wood and coats it to protect and preserve it from insects and fungi. The best part is that the Disodium Octaborate Tetrahydrate does not deteriorate over time, so it will provide protection to the treated area for a long time to come.
Slab Pressure Treatment
Subterranean termites build nests and mud tubes from dirt, and as such, may look like a big wet spot on the wood when they first begin to form a colony. Between their mud tubes and pellets, they can be fairly easy to identify. However, they can also cause catastrophes of epic proportions. Unlike drywood termites, they go for softer wood, typically wood that has been exposed to moisture or rot. While they are more particular than drywood termites, when they colonize, they do so in a big way, causing major destruction and wreaking havoc on your home and structures, because they are extremely aggressive and can spread within a few days.
