Subterranean Termites Versus Drywood Termites

When performing a free termite inspection, we first determine what kind of termites are infesting your home – that way we know what methods to use to control them. Here in Florida, we typically see subterranean termites and drywood termites. Both species' queens lay thousands of eggs every day—in fact, subterranean termites lay eggs about every 15 seconds! This is why it's imperative to call us as soon as you believe you have termites. We use different treatment methods for different termites because they infest homes in different ways. When either pest invades, we have a solution for you!

Sentricon® for Subterranean Termites 

Certified Sentricon SpecialistSubterranean termites will nest below ground and require contact with soil and plenty of moisture. They're dark brown in color and about a half-inch long. When we identify subterranean termites, our exterminators utilize our Sentricon Colony Elimination System® with Always Active™ baiting technology to eliminate them. This is the most effective way of eliminating termite colonies, especially subterranean termites, according to over 30 different universities and scientific publications. It’s even trusted by the White House! During installation, a tube containing a special bait is put into the soil, forming a protective ring around the home. No chemicals, no spray, and no hassle! It's as simple as that!

Why Choose Sentricon Termite Baiting?

With this effective, environment-friendly technology you’ll be termite-free – for good. The benefits of choosing Sentricon termite baiting are:

  • 24/7 protection—The Sentricon System begins working as soon as it's put into the ground. And with ongoing service from our Certified Sentricon Specialists, your home will be protected 24/7/365!
  • Eco-friendly—The Sentricon System is the only termite product awarded the EPA's Presidential Green Chemistry Challenge Award for superior environmentally responsible chemistry.
  • Chemical-free—There are no chemicals injected into the ground and no trucks with large chemical tanks will be on your property!
  • No property damage—There isn't any digging or trenching, meaning no damage to your lawn or house.
  • Total colony elimination—Scientifically engineered bait naturally enters their food chain, killing the queen and her entire colony. It works because, given the choice, termites prefer bait over wood, and they can't detect the active ingredient.
  • It's completely hassle-free—You don't have to worry about scheduling services, structural drilling, drigging or trenching, or chemicals!

Tenting for Drywood Termites

termite tenting in southwest floridaDrywood termites will nest above ground and often invade your walls and roof. They are usually a pale brown color, and "soldier" drywood termites are about three-eights of an inch long. When identifying drywood termites, we turn to spot treatments and structural fumigation. Unlike subterranean termites, termite baiting stations will not prevent drywoods from invading your walls and roof. To make matters worse, they often remain hidden within the wood on which they feed, so they are hard to detect. Termite tenting, also known as structural fumigation is the most effective way of eradicating drywood termites, powderpost beetles, and even bed bugs from your home. Depending on the extent of the infestation, termite tenting can sometimes be avoided with spot treatments of insecticides, but the only way to ensure that no termite is left behind is to fumigate your home.

How does our termite tenting work?

1. Your home is carefully prepared and tented. Think of the tent as a balloon; it keeps the gas in so the termites die.

2. The tent is filled with fumigant. The precise amount of fumigant makes its way throughout your home, seeking out every termite no matter where it’s hiding.

3. Every single termite dies. No more invaders hiding in your walls, eating away at your home

4. The tent is vented and your home is termite-free. The gas completely exits your home and does not leave behind surface residue or living termites.

Tenting Versus Other Termite Treatment Options

When it comes to getting rid of drywood termites, you have a choice. This chart will help you decide which termite treatment is best for you and your home.

Tenting/Fumigation

  • Kills all termites, even hidden or inaccessible colonies
  • One treatment eliminates 100% of termites
  • No drilling necessary
  • Residents must prepare their home and leave it for a few days
  • Costs more than most spot treatments, requires leaving home for a few days

Spot Treatments

  • Colonies must be found to be treated
  • Multiple treatments may be necessary if all termites are not eliminated
  • Requires drilling
  • Pest professionals must inspect the home, and residents may have to leave until the chemical dries
  • Cost per treatment is less than fumigation, but multiple services are often needed

Heat Treatment

  • Unlikely to kill all termites throughout the home
  • Drywall, insulation, concrete, and tile take longer to heat and may affect how well the treatment works
  • No drilling necessary
  • Many common household items are heat-sensitive and must be removed or protected — residents may have to leave their home for one day
  • Cost is equivalent to fumigation
