Proven Termite Control in Beaverton
Dampwood termites, just as their name suggests, need moisture to survive. They infect only wet wood, so are not a threat where wood is dry. They are most commonly found where wet wood and soil meet, though they do not require soil contact to enter a building’s wood. The most effective way to treat dampwood termites is to eliminate the moisture. We offer crawl space restoration services to reduce the moisture and restore the proper airflow of your crawl space, if that is where we find the termites originating.
To ensure that dampwood termites are eradicated and unable to return, we also offer treatment with time-tested, proven products which will protect the wood of your home for years to come.
The subterranean termites come up from the ground and are some of the most aggressive types of termite. One common indicator of this type of termite is the soil tubes they build. You may see them coming up from the ground in your crawl space or from cracks in the foundation of a basement or garage. They can also be seen around the foundation of a building.
Subterranean termite control often involves pulling back the soil around the foundation of a building, treating the wood, and then mixing the termicide with the soil before replacing it back around the building’s structure. Bait stations may also be placed around the home.
