How to get rid of Drywood Termites?

An inspection is the first and foremost step in identifying if Drywood Termites are present. When the species of termite is identified, a tailored solution will eliminate and prevent further termite problems and damages. Since Termites mostly live underground and in the walls of your home or business, it is very difficult to identify their presence. If you believe that you have drywood termites, contact a professional for a free inspection. This will save you time and money.

Drywood Termites create colonies in wood, without needing to connect to the ground. They are often found in attic wood and can survive with very little moisture. When a drywood termite colony is mature, swarms of winged male and female reproductive. These reproductive termites fly out of their colony to create new colonies after mating. Warm temperatures and heavy rains can also instigate swarms.

Drywood termites infestations are identifiable by the presence of piles of fecal pellets. These fecal pellets are often first noticed in places like windowsills.

    "A few months back I decided that I wanted to check on different prices of pest control because I felt that I was paying to much with another company. I ended up finding Care Free Pest Control Solutions through my search. I had spoken to Tim over the phone, he was very polite and took the time to speak with me. I didn't feel rushed or as if someone just wanted to make money. Tim came out to the house for a basic routine check and did a wonderful job he even went above and beyond his job of duty. I had told him that my mom had a rat problem at her house. He took the time to make another appointment with me to meet at my moms house and helped recommend what she needed to do in order to get rid of this problem. She was so impressed with his thoughtfulness to take the time and step out of his regular services that she asked for him to become his routinely pest service guy. I highly recommend Care Free Pest Solutions as they provide the every day, to the difficult to even going above and beyond the normal job of duty."
