Termites feed on wood and may live deep inside the structure. Treatment alone for the Pacific Dampwood termite is not enough. Repairing the wood and eliminating moisture problems are recommended. The Western Subterranean termite attack wood but return to the soil. Both may create mud tubes for protection and moisture as they travel about. Treatment in some cases involves trenching inside and outside of foundation walls and sub-slab injection. Consult Pete’s Pest Control for proper identification and measures that can be taken to discourage infestation.
