Subterranean termites seek out moisture in which to make nests. They prefer to build nests under ground so do not reside in the building. Nests can sometimes be detected against the house or other building, although they tend to favor dark spaces. It is more likely nests will be between the house and shrubs, or at the back of the house and may not be noticed.
Drywood termites do live in the buildings they infest. They are more difficult to detect and hard to eradicate because they spread throughout the entire building. The most efficient method of getting rid of this species is full tent fumigation.
The major advantages of this method are treatment of the whole building in one application, and prevention of re-infestation. The building is sealed under a tent and a special gas is released. Depending on the situation and size of the building, the process can take a few hours, or up to seventy-two hours.
An experienced Termite & Pest Control Mililani company, such as Bowman Termite & Pest Management LLC, will know safety precautions and provide aeration after fumigation is completed.
