Services to Protect Your Property
Do you need a WDO Inspection (Termite Inspection) for Escrow? Do you suspect termite activity? Are you interested in getting a health check on your home for peace of mind or before remodeling or before a new roof?
All termite inspections are performed by a licensed, experienced inspector and followed by a written report. Our inspector will look are your areas of conscern, will note wood-destroying organisms: drywood termites, subterranean termites, dampwood termites, fungus/dry rot, wood-boring beetles, carpenter ants, and carpenter bees.
The final report includes a list of damage found, recommendations for treatment and repair, and recommendations for preventing conditions that make your home vulnerable to termites and other wood destroying organisms (WDO).
Termite Control and Treatments
Local Termite Treatment
When termites or dry rot is confined to one or two areas, the structure may be a candidate for local treatment. This means only the visible, affected area is treated. The Thrasher Inspector will advise you if local treatment is a good option for your structure and provide alternatives if it is not.
Drywood Termite Fumigation
The primary recommendation for the treatment of drywood termites is fumigation. By the time evidence of drywood termites becomes visible, there is a high likelihood of multiple colonies in the structure. Fumigation is the proven method of exterminating all drywood termites. Learn more about structural fumigation.
Subterranean Termite Treatments
Subterranean termites and Formosan subterraneant termites are controlled through perimeter soil treatments, baiting with monitored bait stations, or both. The treatment we prescribe takes into account the subterranean termites species, the infestation's size, the landscape around your home, and your goals.
