Frequently Asked Questions
ARE TERMITES DANGEROUS?
Not directly; however, subterranean termites are a destructive species. Termite damage can collapse a building entirely, meaning possible financial ruin for a homeowner. The hard, saw-toothed jaws of termites work like shears and are able to bite off extremely small fragments of wood, one piece at a time.
SO WHY DO I HAVE THEM?
Having termites is all about conducive conditions, such as wood to ground contact, poor drainage, etc. Older homes or homes that have had water damage also increase the likelihood of having a termite problem. A full inspection by one of our trained professionals can show you where these issues might be.
HOW DO YOU GET RID OF TERMITES?
Getting rid of termites is a very big task. They live in the ground as far away at 300 feet and cannot be exposed to the air, so treatment is time consuming. If the entire colony is not destroyed, they will keep coming back. Only termite control from an experienced California pest control company will be effective.
IS THE TERMITE TREATMENT SAFE?
Pest Service Direct uses the least amount of material as possible while still resolving the problem. We utilize natural products, baits and mechanical means as a form of treatment as much as possible.
HOW CAN I PREVENT THIS IN THE FUTURE?
Keep mulch away from the home.
Don't allow soil to wood contact.
Don't stack firewood up against your dwelling or inside.
Remove all rotten or decaying wood and debris from your property.
Correct any leaky piping or appliances to prevent water damaged wood (termites love it).
