Dry Wood Termite Control
Drywood termites are a type of termite that can cause significant damage to wooden structures. Unlike other types of termites, drywood termites do not require moisture to survive and can infest dry wood structures, making them difficult to detect and control. That's why dry wood termite control is essential to protect your home or property from these destructive pests.
Dry wood termite control typically begins with a thorough inspection of the property to identify the extent of the infestation. Professional termite control services use various tools, including infrared cameras, to detect termite activity within walls and other areas that are difficult to access.

- Heat treatment: This involves heating the infested area to a high temperature, typically between 120 and 140 degrees Fahrenheit, for several hours. The heat kills the termites and their eggs, effectively eliminating the infestation.
- Fumigation: This involves sealing the infested area and releasing a gas that penetrates the wood and kills the termites. The gas can be toxic, so it's essential to evacuate the property during the fumigation process.
- Electrocution: This involves using an electric current to kill the termites. Electrodes are inserted into the infested wood, and a low-voltage current is applied, killing the termites without damaging the wood.
- Insecticides: This involves applying a chemical insecticide to the infested area. The insecticide can be injected into the wood or applied directly to the surface of the wood. The chemical kills the termites on contact and provides long-lasting protection against future infestations.
