Look for mud tunnels along your foundation.
These pests are often noticed in Spring when they swarm.
We use a termiticide to treat the soil around structures.
There are at least six native subterranean termites in the United States. The most common and destructive is the Eastern Subterranean termite. Homeowners should look for mud tunnels along the foundation of the structure. Other signs of these maybe mud on the drywall covering a small pin hole where the termites have eaten through. These termites are often noticed during the Spring when they swarm.
Prior to a treatment all wood that is against or underneath the structure should be removed.
Dowell Pest Control will utilize a termiticide with the active ingredient of Fipronil to treat the soil around the structure.
Unlike Subterranean termites drywood termite colonies do not reside in the soil. Often times drywood termites are hard to locate but evidence of them may be their fecal pellets. These fecal pellets are tiny egg-shaped and very hard, if placed under a microscope you will notice longitudinal depressions on them. These termites are also found when swarming in late spring and early summer.
Drywood termite treatments can range from removing the board that the colony has infested, to conducting a spot treatment utilizing a foam termiticide to fumigating the entire structure by wrapping the structure with tarpaulins and introducing the fumigant Vikane. Vikane is a gas which is made up of Sulfuryl Floride. Dowell Pest Control will conduct an inspection of your structure and then discuss these different options, we balance the size of the infestation with your economical desires to come up with the best course of action for you. We can conduct any treatment mentioned above but our desire is to customize a plan that fits your specific need, a one size fits all situation is rarely the answer.
