How can you tell if you need to call Integrity Termite professionals?
Without noticing the actual wood damage, evidence of infestation include swarmers, which are winged adults that fly away from existing colonies to form their own. Shed wings, because the adults shed them once they find a new home and set off to mate. Other evidence is piles of pellets, plugs from termites that seal openings of the infested wood, and blisters on wood damage caused by enlarged galleries or tubes close to the surface.
What kind of termite is bugging you in Long Beach, San Juan Capistrano and along the coast up to Los Angeles?
The Pacific Dampwood Termite is the largest you will see in the coastal areas of California. As the name implies, you will find the bugs in Newport Beach, Seal Beach, Redondo, Santa Monica, and everywhere that gets the sweet ocean air. Swarming occurs throughout the year, but usually, happens from August to October. These events occur on warm, humid evenings right before sunset. The termites are up to one-inch in length and are light to medium brown. The wings are a darker brown. The soldiers have a large head armed with long black toothed mandibles. The insect also has a dark reddish-brown posterior with the abdomen and thorax being a light caramel color and are 5/8 to 3/4-inch in size.
The Western Subterranean Termite infests homes in California, and all the western states of the US, and Mexico. The buggers plague the urban areas of SoCal. The workers are soft-bodied about a 1/8-inch long, have no wings, are blind, sterile, and work 24 hours a day. So, the damage they do can be substantial in a short amount of time.
The soldiers are orange in color with an armored head and mandibulate pinchers and are usually first to be seen in large numbers when any active termite mud shelter tubes or damaged timber is opened, as it is the soldier termite that rushes out to guard the colony.
The Western Drywood Termite accounts for most of the termite wood damage in California, and one colony can be home to about 2,000 termites. In one residence, there can also be multiple colonies. The Western Drywood Termite is easily transported within infested furniture, picture frames, and timbers with a moisture content of less than 12 percent.
The swarmers are about a 1/2-inch in length including the wings. The head is orange-brown in color, with a dark brown abdomen. The soldiers have mandibles, teeth, and antenna. Drywood Termites feed on the wood grain creating chambers connected by tunnels. When they swarm, they fly into structures and infest the wood directly, typically the first infest is exposed wood found in window and door frames, trims, and eaves.
The Drywood Termite lives in the wood above ground, do not need soil as the lumber they consume provides the moisture needed for survival. You will not find their galleries containing mud like you would with subterranean termite tubes. The Drywood Termite consumes all the wood, with only a thin piece of painted layer left. The insect will eat against the grain leaving the inside of the gallery or tunnel to appear as if it had been smoothed with sand paper.
Drywood Termites produce a fine powdery like refuse known as frass. This is your indicator when you find it in a tube or tunnel, or kicked out of one. You do not want to disturb the termites as they will only move into an area which will remain detection free until the damage is visible to the untrained eye. Don’t let it cause you stress, simply contact Integrity Termite. In your hour of need, you will receive from us, a termite inspection for free. A two-year warranty backs up the fumigation process, and our work ethic takes care of the rest. Client testimonies back the facts. You will be a satisfied customer, too.
Does the thought of termites drive you crazy?
Integrity Termite can handle the infestation with treatments and fumigation. Tenting and fumigation of termites are used when there are severe and widespread infestations of termites. There are other methods, however, when there is an extensive discovery, there is fumigation and residents will need to leave the home. Items that stay in the home require being sealed up.
