Pest Control and Extermination
Many residents of Florida, especially those living near the coast or in southern counties, will experience a drywood termite infestation in their home. Unlike subterranean termites which require excess moisture, drywood termites spend almost their entire life cycle inside the sound, dry wood members upon which they feed.
Only during brief swarming flights do young adults leave the confines of their galleries to begin new colonies elsewhere. Winged adults or “swarmers”, shed wings, ejected pellets, and galleries inside wood are typical signs of a drywood termite infestation. Swarming ants are sometimes confused with termites, but their differences are easy to recognize.
Rodents eat almost everything used as food by man. With their droppings, urine, dirt, and hair, they contaminate much more than they eat. Their constant gnawing can damage upholstery, wood plastic and lead pipes. They can jeopardize human life by chewing wiring and gas pipes.
Rodent problems increase in cooler months when the pests come inside in search of food and shelter. They can enter an opening as small as 1⁄4 inch. PEST DEPOT PROFESSIONAL RODENT PROOFING will close these openings and quickly trap out any remaining rodents in your home. Your PEST DEPOT Technician/Inspector will make a free survey of all of the areas where rodents could enter your home and show you how our service provides an effective shield against rodent infestation.
A WDO report may also be commonly called a “Termite Inspection”, “Clearance Letter”, or “Termite Letter”. A WDO inspection not only checks for subterranean termites and dry wood termites but will also include wood destroying beetles and wood decaying fungi.
