In many areas of SoCal drywood termites are swarming now. If you see flying termites, spray them with Windex or even water and feel free to clean up remains. There is nothing else needed for removing swarming termites. However, it would be great if you keep a sample of them for the inspector to look at. As a rule, swarming drywood termites are a sign of drywood termite infestation on the structure. The structure will need a thorough inspection to find out areas and points of infestations as well as damage and possible damage, if any. Also, there might be subterranean termite infestation, fungus damage, plumbing leaks, and many other findings (about 42 in our list). Since this is the busiest time of the year, we are booked many days in advance though employ many inspectors.

Most Homes And Other Structures Qualify For A Complete Wood Destroying Organisms (termite) Inspection


Most recent video of termite damage:

Drywood termite damage photos from one of the recent repairs and termite treatments done by Prime Termite.
Even though the property was not very close to the ocean line but still had lots of termite damage. As you can see drywood termites can do severe damage. This is why they need to be controlled, repaired and prevented properly. This pictures were taken in August in mid Los Angeles.

As you can on the photos, drywood termites can damaged a support beam in subarea due to the fact that the structure did not get termite inspection and did not find about this damage on time. This very important structural wood members needs to be replaced which requires at least 2-3 days of work by also obtaining respective permits. Also, some areas in house need to be made accessible for further inspection. Obviously, the homeowner could have avoided these expenses and alterations to his house if termite inspection was scheduled on time years ago and preventative organic wood preservatives were exposed to the wood members above.
