Termites in Southern California
Southern California has the largest Drywood Termite population in the United States. Out of all termite species the drywood termite has proved to be the most difficult termite to control. Colonies contain up to about 2,000 termites, and cause severe damage to structures with the presence of multiple-colonies. This termite lives in timber with moisture content of less than 12%. Unlike their cousins the subterranean termite, they do not live in the ground, require no ground contact, and do not build mud shelter tubes.
The Western drywood termite can be found in California from San Francisco to the Mexican border and about 60 miles inland. Very heavy in the southern California area makes it just about impossible to avoid their attack. Any wood framed structure is open to drywood termite infestation; in southern California from Santa Barbara all the way through Orange County, and San Diego.
Southern California is known to have some of the most expensive real estate in the United States. With homes and multi-family structures worth millions of dollars, every property owner should want a product that can eliminate and protect their investment from Drywood termites. Some of the most infested areas in Southern California are Los Angeles, Malibu, Westlake Village, Calabasas, Pacific Palisades, Santa Monica, Thousand Oaks, Pasadena, Hollywood, and all of Orange County.
Controlling drywood termites is not as easy as you may think. Just because you may not see any evidence of termite damage, does not always mean you don't have them. If you live in southern California along the coast it's very possible that your neighbors have them, and it's only a matter of time before your property becomes infested with drywood termites.
Because of the way drywood termites migrate each year, any wood structure in close proximity is open to their attack. This could be from the next door neighbor or a wood fence in the yard, or even a tree. Each year from September to December the drywood termite colonies in southern California send out 1000's of swarmers. Flying high and low these swarmers can attack tall buildings made up of several floors. No wood structure is safe from the drywood termite, it's in the property owner's best interest to protect their structure with a product that will last year after year, and not some temporary band-aid that will let termites back in hours after treatment.

With only a one time application of Dri-Out®, your structure becomes drywood termite resistant. Years of protection and peace of mind is not the only reason to choose the Dry-Out® DEHYDRATION System. Don't forget that it's non-chemical, no property damage, no move out is required, and that it's the safest and longest lasting drywood termite elimination available.
