What Are Drywood Termites?
As the name suggests, drywood termites are known for thriving in hard, dry wood in houses and commercial structures. These termites can be found on the structural lumber in houses, as well as on wooden roof shingles, eaves, and siding. You may even find them eating away at wooden furniture, picture frames, or banisters. If left untreated, your property will be at great risk from these termites since they are notorious for causing issues like soft wood, dark or blistered wood structures, uneven or bubbling paint, and more. That is why it’s crucial to avail of professional drywood termite control services as a preventative measure before they cause permanent and costly damages.
We at EcoStar Pest Control offer businesses and homeowners the complete termite control process, including inspection, identification of pests, prevention, and extermination services to protect your investment at affordable rates. Our drywood termite treatment involves installing cellulose-enriched bait stations around the property, which work with a slow-acting insecticide to disrupt the normal growth process in termites and kill these pests within weeks. Our approach is a strategic and effective way to kill drywood termite colonies and keep them out of your home or place of business, preventing widespread damage like warped doors and windows, sagging skirting boards, swollen floors, or buckling wood, among other issues. That said, there are also other termite control treatments to avail of depending on your property’s situation, including gas fumigation, termiticide application, moisture removal, and more.
