There are two types of termites that can damage your home – drywood termites and subterranean termites. Each type is different and must be treated separately. A professional termite inspector can help you determine whether or not you have a termite problem and, if so, what kind of termite infestation you have.
Drywood termites build their colonies above ground, in the walls, floors, and contents of your home. They spread throughout the neighborhood through swarming – endangering not only your home but any home in the vicinity.
Drywood termites are the focus of this site. Here, we’ll help you identify signs of a termite infestation, provide tips for finding the right fumigation professional, and explain how Vikane® gas fumigant works. Vikane has been proven to effectively eliminate 100% of drywood termite infestations for over 50 years.
Subterranean termites require moist conditions (such as those found in homes with faulty plumbing or gutters) and are found in every state except Alaska. Subterranean termites nest in or near the soil – in fact, their colonies can span up to a half acre. Their vast network of tunnels leads them to even the tiniest of cracks and crevices in your home, where they leave a pheromone scent trail that leads others from their colony to the food source.
There are several factors that might indicate it’s time for a termite inspection and possible fumigation. You might want to have an inspection to ensure your peace of mind if:
Because it is nearly impossible to locate all of the drywood termites in a structure, contact a professional termite inspector to accurately identify if you have a drywood termite infestation in your home. Should you find you have termites, do not treat the problem lightly, as you not only risk damage to your own home but to any nearby structures – the termites could leave your house to establish colonies elsewhere. Whole-structure fumigation with Vikane® gas fumigant rids your home of 100% of the termites – the first time.
Remember, too, that if you are selling or buying a house, termite inspections or documented treatment for termites may be a legal requirement for the completion of the sale.
Do You Have Termites?
You might already have termites and not even know it. That’s because drywood termites thrive in the inaccessible areas of your home – eating it from the inside out. By the time you’ve realized you have an infestation, they might have already done extensive damage.
When conducting whole-structure fumigation with Vikane® gas fumigant, your fumigation professional will follow a proven process that has been used successfully for over half a century to ensure all the drywood termites are eliminated. Here’s how the fumigation process works:
Because it is an inorganic gas, Vikane® gas fumigant completely dissipates from a structure following fumigation, leaving no surface residue, odor, or film behind. This means you will not have to wash dishes, linens, clothing, or furnishings after fumigation.
