FEPM No-Tent Termite Control is effective at getting rid of South Florida’s drywood termite species, one of the most common types of termites in the state. Our FEPM trained professionals apply the following steps, to get rid of drywood termite infestations of any size or scale:
Tenting a home for treatment is a huge inconvenience, requiring homeowners to relocate for a minimum of two days. Homeowners must also take other preparatory steps, such as removing all uncanned foods from the property. The following are undeniable advantages of FEPM’s No-Tent Termite Control:
Drywood termites live in colonies of up to 5,000 termites. Very little moisture is required for their survival, and no connection to the ground is needed. The areas most affected by drywood termites include attic trusses, soffit areas, and fascia boards. The moisture they do get is obtained from the water produced by digesting cellulose from wood. This results in sand-like, very hard fecal pellets. Seeing these pellets, called “frass”, is the most common way the presence of the termites is detected. Swarms are a sign of a mature colony. The colony caste system is composed of a queen, a king, soldiers, nymphs, and pseudergates (false workers). Unlike subterranean termite colonies, there is no true worker caste.
There are various actions homeowners can take to reduce the likelihood of a termite infestation. Scrap wood and firewood should be stored at least 20 feet from the home. All cracks and crevices in the structure should be sealed. Outside of these types of steps, the best way to avoid damage caused by termites is to rely on the professionals at Florida Environmental Pest Management.
