Termites (commonly known as white ants) are one of the most destructive pests in Southern California. They cause millions of dollars damage to homes and structures throughout SoCal every year, which is why termite protection is so important. This damage is not covered by most insurance companies, therefore it’s best to ensure all preventative termite protection methods have been established.
Do You Think You Have Termites?
If you think you have termites or you have found a suspect skirting board or door frame it is very important not to disturb or break open the damaged timber or workings as the termites will shut down the disturbed area and possibly begin damaging elsewhere in your home.
The first thing to do is call the professionals in pest control in Orange County now and speak with one of our customer service team members about termite control in OC and to guide you through what to do next.
How Do You Tell If You Have Termites?
Termites eat timber, hollowing it out from the inside this can cause the timber to appear like it is bubbling or wrinkled. Sometimes the termites eat through and will patch the hole up with mud. Inside a home most people find termites in flooring, skirting boards and doorframes.
If your flooring feels soft under foot or your vacuum cleaner goes through the skirting board, the first thing to do is to call us and arrange one of our accredited professional termite inspectors to carry out an termite inspection.
