There are few things that are more destructive to your home than termites. Each year in the United States billions of dollars are spent on repairing the damage caused by termites. The biggest problem with a termite infestation is how they silently chew away at your home. You might not even know there is a problem until the damage is excessive. Termites can spread from the walls of you home to your cabinets and even to your furniture. Before you start to panic, give Admiral Pest Control a call. When it comes to Orange County termite control, we are your best solution.

Drywood damage

In California, we have several types of termites. One type that loves antique furniture is the drywood termite. Like their name implies, they love dry wood. They cause damage when they chew inside your grandmother’s rocking chair. Their damage will go unnoticed until a part of the chair breaks. Upon closer inspection you will notice that there are tunnels and pathways chewed into the wood. You might also notice piles of termite feces around your furniture. If you suspect drywood termites give Admiral Pest Control a call.

Subterranean Termite Damage

Subterranean termites have a larger colony, which means more mouths to feed, which then means more trouble for you and your home. Subterranean termites are always hungry. They cause damage a lot faster than any other type of termite. Like drywood termites, subterranean termites create tunnels and galleries inside of wood. The network gets larger as they eat more and more wood. One of the best ways to identify subterranean termites is with their mud tunnels. Unlike drywood termites, subterranean termites need to keep things moist. In order to protect their workers, they build mud tunnels to keep moist air inside their colony. If you notice mud tunnels traveling up your foundation, you have a problem.
