Termites in Los Angeles

November 16, 2012by

Today we’re going to talk about termites in Los Angeles, California.

Everyone loves the lifestyle in Los Angeles. Did I say everyone? I meant every thing. Are there termites in Los Angeles? Yes, there are. Tough ones. Termites love Los Angeles. And what do they do for fun? Well the same thing they do for work. Eat your house.

There are three main types of termite a property owners in Los Angeles need to be mindful of: dampwood, drywood and subterranean termites.

A termites’ single mindedness is just amazing. 1st order of business? Survive. And for the termites in Los Angeles? Their survival strategy is secretly hiding and thriving in your yard or attic. I say secretly because there won’t be any immediate signs of damage. At least to a humane perspective, but we’re often the last to know. So yeah, termites live in Los Angeles and all homes, regardless of their construction type, provide ideal conditions for termite infestation.

Look at those pictures above again. Do you see those mouths? A termite’s mouth is designed to tear large pieces of food and while termites only measure approximately one centimeter in length, they don’t like to eat alone. Talk about a death from a thousand cuts; table for 500? And let me tell ya when this party pulls away from the table (which they don’t actually. Ever.) not only have they racked up a expensive check in damage to your property, but they swarm and skip out on the bill!

But don’t worry, this is Hollywood. There’s a happy ending because we’re here to come to the rescue. If’ there’s termites we’ll detect them and present the bill. It’s gonna cost them (their lives) if you call us. Wouldn’t that be nice?
