Getting Rid of Termites
Here in the Pacific Northwest we have two types of Termites. The Dampwood Termite and the Subterranean Termite.
The Dampwood Termite will only attack wet dampwood. Rain soaked firewood or building materials that are damp due to earth wood contact can be the reason why you would have Dampwood Termite infestation. Simply removing and replacing the wood can solve the issue with Dampwood Termites. We can treat the area with a pesticide but the problem will not go away with only a pesticide treatment.

The Subterranean Termites are among the most important structural insect pests in the Northwest. They can attack any structure and will eat any dry sound wood. Normally their nests will be under the ground as far as 20 feet below the surface. Some signs of a Subterranean Termite infestation are visible mud tubes on surfaces like concrete foundations and swarming Subterranean Termite. The swarming usually happens during late summer and you would notice many small dark colored flying termites. They look different from ants in that they have a broadly joined waist and two wings that are both the same size.
Treatment for Subterranean Termites can vary, but we have all the tools available to do any type of service needed. If you suspect that you have Subterranean Termites we would send out a Technician that would assess the structure and come up with the appropriate service for your individual needs. After the initial colony has been destroyed we can also offer preventative Subterranean Termite service that would commonly be done on a monthly basis.
