Termite Inspection In Santa Ana
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.
Termite Damage Repair In Santa Ana
If you live in a region that is particularly prone to termites and termite damage, an inspection should be a regularly occurring activity for you, as these pests can do devastating amounts of damage in under two years. The best way to keep your beautiful home from becoming another victim of these vermin is prevention and immediate treatment. If you believe that you may be at risk of infestation or you think that there may already be something wiggling in the woodwork, contact us for a free home inspection, and one of our licensed inspectors will come out, identify problem areas, and go over which service we think may be the best for your particular situation.
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.
When we come out to your home while it’s fun to come in with guns a-blazin’, we know that this is a stressful time and we try to leave your home as untouched as possible, so you aren’t left dealing with a huge mess after we’ve gone. Termites are incredibly destructive and can do major property damage, and if you’ve already suffered from their effects, the last thing you need is for someone to come in and cause a need for more maintenance and repairs within your home.
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.

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.

The Termite Inspection Process
Your inspection has to include everywhere, even your backyard. Most people assume that termites live in homes, sort of like when other insects start a nest somewhere in your attic or garage.
However, for many species of termites, they might find the soil around your home the more suitable place to breed more bugs. Unless we look inside, outdoors, and underneath buildings, you can’t be sure if you have pests or not.
That is why we include any crawlspaces, attics, basements, and more areas, making sure that we don’t miss a single warning sign. Those can be wood splintering in on itself, piles of what seems to be sawdust, or insect wings that have fallen off, as well as others.
Most exterminator services agree that your home should have a yearly inspection to prevent damages from happening. Call us now for your free termite inspection and know for sure that your house is free from pests.
Termite colonies only need a few weeks to eat through your home’s wood areas. However, unless you have a certified inspector check your house out, you won’t know that they’re there until it’s too late.
