Is My Home At Risk?
Drywood termites are heaviest in the coastal regions of Southern California. If you own or live in a wood-framed structure located within the red zones, then your property is a very high-risk target for colonization.
Drywood termites pose a major problem for property owners in Southern California. The drywood termite region covers an area extending north of Santa Barbara to the Mexico border; the zone pushes inland for approximately sixty (60) miles. Although the termites can extend beyond these regions, they are most heavily concentrated in the coastal areas and tend to be less common farther away from the ocean.
Drywood termites are not seasonal, worker termites eat wood 24 hours a day 365 days a year. With the vast number of termite colonies living inside california structures the drywood termite is the largest cause of structural damage, out numbering earthquakes, mud slides and wild fires combined. Each year only the drywood termite swarmers seek out any cracks or openings in wood surfaces to start new colonies. Exposed wood, roof and sub area air vents can be the termites port of entry. Swarmers from colonies living inside the structural framing of a home will move from one wall stud to another, expanding the damage and the number of termite colonies living inside the structure. This is why you need a termite control program that will not only eliminate established termite colonies but will provide a long lasting prevention that will kill the annual swarming alates as they enter or emerge your structure. The DRI-OUT DEHYDRATION SYSTEM clearly meets these requirements.
