At Florida Environmental Pest Management (FEPM) we offer a range of effective termite treatments, including FEPM Drywood Termites Tent Fumigation West Palm Beach to eliminate Drywood Termites.

Florida Environmental Pest Management has been helping South Florida builders, homeowners, and business owners with effective termite elimination and prevention for many years.
We usually recommend the FEPM No-Tent Termite Treatment when a termite infestation has been found in a house or business structure. There are benefits to both approaches. Sometimes a situation is such that having a structure tented and fumigated is the best or only real course of action, such as when an infestation is severe.

About Drywood Termites
It can be very difficult to detect an invasion of Drywood Termites. In fact, it’s not unusual for a home to be damaged extensively before an infestation is found. They live inside the wood, almost completely out of sight. The most common signs of Drywood Termites that people notice are tiny holes in wood and fecal pellets on the floor, which are pushed out of those holes by the termites. This is evidence of a mature colony.
This species of termites lives in colonies of up to about 5,000, which includes the queen, king, soldiers, nymphs, and pseudergates, also known as false workers. The following are some of the descriptive features of various types of Drywood Termites:
- Alates or winged reproductives are pale brown to reddish-brown Drywood Termites.
- They are cylindrical in shape, and their bodies are hardened.
- They have four equally sized wings that extend longer than their body.
- The soldiers and nymphs are cream-colored. Their bodies are soft. These types of Drywood Termites are usually hidden inside wood or some other type of cellulostic material.
- They range in length from 3/8” to ½”.
Drywood termites are most commonly found in older homes that have sound, non-decayed wood. They build their colonies in wood frames, fascia boards, wood flooring, attics, doors, furniture, and window sills. When they initially get into a home, the winged termites known as alates or swarmers make their way inside through openings and cracks in the wood. Drywood termites have adapted to dry environments by developing a more impermeable cuticle that better retains body moisture. They are also able to resorb moisture from their feces, and this process is what gives their excrement a unique hexagonal shape.
