The Drywood termite species is quite common to Irvine. Here is a brief account on how the Termite Treatment Irvine practice evolves today. It is a brief look at the background motivations for the special treatment being meted out by the local practitioners. Many Irvine homes were built during the nineteen sixties. During this time many of the homes had traditional wood features, running from wood framing to the decorative Fascia shiplap and trim.
From the outset, new infestations of the Drywood termite will damage all installed wood. It takes no longer than six months before property owners begin to see signs of the infestation. That may well be a blessing in disguise. A case of sooner rather than later. Drywood termites damage all wood from the inside and then out. Okay, so six months may not appear to be long with the perception that there may be a lot less damage.
But it is hardly the case. Damage is immediate and considerable. A useful detection method is to look out for wooden fecal pellets. Drywood termites feed off of the wood, consuming its water and glucose. The property owner should be able to notice this a lot sooner than the six months. Waiting six months, as it turns out, is far too long. By that time, repairing the extensive damage could be quite costly.
But at least there is a service for that. Termite treatment specialists can help property owners to restore, recover or repair damaged wood. But a far more effective treatment beckons. It now flies in the face of all the poisonous conventions that have been applied since those early days in the sixties. Unlike poison or chemicals, termites are not able to adjust to the effects of the compound derived from the treebark.
The organic compound collects on the termites’ bodies. Mistaking it for food, they ingest it to deadly effect. And because they are essentially continuing to build a colony, they come into contact with other termites. The effects of the natural compound spreads. Soon, an entire colony is wiped out, never to return again. But it remains necessary to continue utilizing this organic repellant if only to ensure that no further infestations occur.
Men who invented the chemicals to kill may have thought that they were indomitable. But it is clear as daylight that Mother Nature always knows best.
