Termites are a constant and serious threat to properties in San Diego County. In fact, termites are a threat in every state except Alaska. You need to assume that termites will try and invade your home in San Diego County. If you operate under that assumption, it will prompt you to find the best option in the area for termite control and treatment.
Understand the threat of termites in San Diego County
As mentioned above, termites are a widespread problem in the United States. It can be easy to ignore the possibility of termites in your San Diego County home until you start to see signs of damage. The harsh reality is that termites can be active for a long time before you see damage. A colony of drywood termites can contain up to 3,000 termites while some types of Subterranean termite colonies can have as many as 20,000 termites. Termite colonies can cause damage to your home around the clock. If you do not take the threat of termites seriously you can end up with expensive and extensive damage.
Look for a company that offers effective treatment options
Termite control and treatment are tasks that you should leave up to the professionals. The fact that termites can eat away at the wood of your home around the clock makes them an extremely dangerous pest. If you try some type of DIY termite control and treatment, you leave your San Diego County home open to continued damage. The treatment options that are the most effective against termites require a level of training and experience that you are only going to get from a professional. As you consider options for termite control and treatment, look for a company that offers effective treatment options. Tent fumigation is an example of an effective termite treatment option. Fumigation services can eliminate drywood termites by getting to every area of your home – even areas that are covered with drywall or plaster. At Nixtermite we use Vikane® gas for our fumigations because it is an effective treatment option and does not leave behind surface residue, odor, or film.
