Since your home is probably the largest investment you will make, an annual inspection is recommended. Saddleback Termite & Pest Control offers annual service programs.
Fumigations are recommended when Drywood Termite infestations extend into inaccessible areas that are impractical to open for a further inspection or treatment, or when there are just too many infestations on a property to effectively locally treat it.
Local treatments are generally recommended when Drywood Termite infestations are in visible and accessible areas. In the event that termites may be extending into inaccessible areas, a recommendation to open the area to perform an additional inspection and treatment may be made.
Termites swarm every year, so it is possible to have termites infest your home again at any time, even immediately after fumigation.
Fumigation will not solve your Subterranean Termite problem. Since Subterranean Termites live under ground, it is necessary to use various methods of soil treatment.
In very minor situations, fungus damage/dryrot can be scraped out and treated with a fungicide. The area can then be filled with wood filler and primed. In more severe cases of fungus damage/dryrot, the wood must be removed and replaced with new material. More importantly, the moisture condition that created the fungus should be corrected if practical.
No. Termite inspectors are trained to identify all wood destroying pests and organisms including wood destroying fungus, wood destroying beetles, wood destroying ants and wood destroying bees in addition to termites.
Section 1 on the report are items that are already a problem with regard to termites, fungus/dryrot, wood destroying ants, bees, and beetles. Section 2 on the report are items deemed likely to lead to an infection or infestation such as faulty grades, excessive moisture from a plumbing leak, water stains, earth to wood contacts, etc.
