Termites in San Diego

November 16, 2012by

Today we’re going to talk about termites in San Diego, California.

Everyone loves the weather in San Diego. Did I say everyone? I meant every thing. Are there termites in San Diego? Yes, there are. Termites love San Diego. And what do they do for fun? Same thing they do for work. Eat your house.

There are three main types of termite a property owner in San Diego needs 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 San Diego?  Their survival strategy is secretly hiding and thriving in your attic or yard. 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 San Diego 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 capable of tearing large pieces of food. Talk about a death from a thousand cuts! And while termites only measure about a centimeter in length, they don’t like to eat alone. Table for 500? And I’ll 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 it’s not as bad as all that because we’re here to detect and present that bill and it’s gonna cost them (their lives) if you call us. Wouldn’t that be nice?
