How can I prevent termites from infesting my home?
Termites are flying in my house! Why is this hapening and what should I do?
Termites swarm to start new colonies. Sometimes they unknowingly swarm indoors, but the environment is not conducive to their survival and they will shortly die. Call us for a thorough inspection to determine the best treatment and to see if there is any structural damage to your home. During the inspection, we'll gladly share some tips on what can be done until the treatment is performed.
How can I get rid of dry rot/wood decay damage?
Dry rot is caused by a fungus decaying the structural integrity of wood. Aside from repairing or replacing the damaged wood members, there is no easy way to remove dry rot damage. If fungus is present on the wood surface and damage has not yet occurred, the best method is to immediately apply a registered fungicide and prevent moisture intrusion and/or retention with the use of proper flashing, moisture proofing and/or wood preservatives. Call us for a professional inspection and we will provide you with a report and specific recommendations.
How do I know if I have wood boring beetles in my house?
There are many varieties of wood boring beetles, each with different infestation habits and some may be difficult to detect and identify, particularly to the untrained eye. Generally beetles are rarely seen but their damage is more evident with dust falling from wood members. Tenting and fumigation may be the best treatment but sometimes a local treatment will suffice. The best course of action is to obtain a professional inspection and report with the appropriate recommendations.
