Termites in Los Angeles
Termite Control Los Angeles
Los Angeles is home to the Western Drywood Termite, out of all termite species the drywood termite has proved to be the most difficult termite to control in Los Angeles.Colonies contain up to about 2,000 termites. Severe damage may be caused by 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. Termite control in Los Angeles can be achieved providing a structure’s wood framing is protected.
The Western drywood termite can be found in California from San Francisco to the Mexican border and about 60 miles inland. Drywood Termites are very heavy in the Los Angeles area making all most 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 are some the heaviest infestation areas.
Los Angeles 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 and around Los Angeles include Malibu, Westlake Village, Calabasas, Pacific Palisades, Santa Monica, Thousand Oaks, Pasadena, Hollywood, and most other smaller cities in Los Angeles 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 Los Angeles or one of the surrounding cities 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 flying termites called swarmers. Flying high and low these swarmers 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.
