Why Are Termites Such a Problem?

The main issue with termites is that they feed on cellulose material, namely on decaying or rotting wood and plant material. Because of this, when they get into your home, they make short work of wood features like foundations, structural beams, walls, wood flooring, and even wood furniture. Termite species are organized into several categories based on their feeding behavior.

Categories of termite species include:

  • Damp wood
  • Dry wood
  • Subterranean

The termite species you are most likely to encounter in Bakersfield is the subterranean termite. Subterranean termites are the most destructive termites around. This is the species that is predominantly associated with extensive damage to homes. These termites live in large colonies and they build mud tubes to get around. They typically enter homes through the soil beneath your home and move in through any wood feature that is touching the ground.

Treating a Termite Infestation

Often termite infestations go unnoticed because termites are small, and they live in hidden places. However, there are several warning signs of a termite infestation for which you can be on the lookout. For example, if you have noticed wood features in your home are sagging or have a hollow sound when knocking on them, termites may have started consuming them. Another sign is frass, also known as termite droppings. Frass will show up as little piles that look like wood dust.

Treating termites can be tricky, especially if you have an extensive infestation. As your pest control provider, we may employ several methods depending on the nature of your problem.

Methods for exterminating termites include:

  • Fumigation

  • Soil treatment with termiticide

  • Wood treatments, including sprays and foam injections

  • Termite Repair

After your home has been treated for termites, you will next need to address any repair issues. Because termites eat wood, you will need to inspect all the wood features in your home to identify how extensive the damage is. Typical repairs include windowsills, doors and doorframes, wooden decks, house siding, roof and attic damage, stairs, and railings. The Bakersfield termite repair specialists at Oxley Pest Control, Inc. can guide you throughout the repair process, ensuring you receive the services you need to recover from your termite infestation.
