In the geographic areas of California where drywood termites exist, they are the most difficult termite species to control.The reason being they are the only termite species that only requires wood to survive. All the moisture and nutrients a drywood termite colony needs is in the wood they consume.
Any exposed wood, small cracks in exterior surfaces, attic or air vents can be the drywood termites port of entry. Once a single reproductive termite swamer makes it into your California Home, they will start a colony. As the colony grows so does the damage they cause. If you stop the swarmers from laying eggs and starting colonies, you will never have a termite problem. With a single application of Dri-Out®, your structure can become termite free and stay that way for as long as your home is standing. Home Saving Termite Control cannot only eliminate your existing termite problems but make sure your home stays termite free.
It’s a fact the drywood termites migrate every year in the fall months and any wood framed structure in Los Angeles, Malibu, Pacific Palisades, Pasadena or Santa Monica can be infested a number of times. This is the reason most homeowners say it does not mater what you do termites come right back. Not so when your home is protected with Dri-Out®, any wood member with a light coating of Dri-Out® will kill termites after momentary contact for decades.
Virtually all other exterminating companies are utilizing fumigation for drywood termite control. This has been the standard practice for over 60 years. In the beginning, and for a number of years thereafter, this method delivered fairly satisfactory results. However, during the past 20 to 30 years the fumigation procedure has suffered a steady decline in effectiveness due to major changes in remodeling and new construction designs and improved building materials, such as laminated plywood, sheet rock/drywall, vapor barriers, insulation, vinyl products and latex paints, etc.
The workable theory of the fumigation procedure depends on the ability of the fumigant to permeate and penetrate into all walls, ceilings and between floors. However, these improved construction materials are non-porous, making permeation and penetration by gases virtually impossible. If drywood termite colonies in the framing of these inaccessible voids cannot be contacted and exposed to the fumigants for the proper length of time (8 hours or more), they cannot possibly be eliminated.
In many cases property owners using the fumigation procedure expose themselves and neighbors to very highly toxic chemicals, suffer property damage, and still have termites. Also, fumigation does not provide any protection for the structure against yearly reoccurring attacks by swarming reproductive termites. The question is "How can a fumigation company offer a 2 year or more guarantee on a service where nothing is left in or on the structure to provent termites from coming right back"?
The Dri-Out DEHYDRATION SYSTEM® leaves nothing to chance or theory. Its patented design injects non-poisonous DRI-OUT® directly into the inaccessible voids, a termites’ natural habitat. One application of DRI-OUT® will kill annual migrating swarming reproductives on contact as they enter a structure potentially for the life of a building. By controlling drywood termite proliferation and migration, structural damage of wood framing members can be prevented permanently. Therefore, costly, ineffective, repeated applications of toxic chemicals would become totally unnecessary.
Dr. Susan Kegley, senior scientist for Pesticide Action Network, says. "Symptoms of exposure to Vikane include stinging eyes as well as nose, throat, and lung irritation. Exposure can cause fluid to collect in the lungs, a complication that can lead to serious respiratory illness. Other effects include nausea and vomiting, as well as neurological symptoms such as slurred speech, slowed gait, weakness, irritability, numbness, tremors, and seizures. Chronic neurotoxic effects observed in fumigant applicators include tremors, inability to concentrate, and reduction in cognitive skills.
