What To Look For In The Upcoming Termite Swarm Season In Southern California

termites

From late summer to early fall in Southern California, local winged termites fly from their nests to mate and search for new nest sites and food sources. These insects emerge from cracks in buildings and holes in the soil through swarm holes made by the worker termites. Swarming is a natural part of the termite lifestyle, and it helps give a clear indication there is termite activity in or around your home.

Drywood termites go through three life stages, from egg, nymph, and to adult. Approximately every four years, three-fourths of the adults in an established colony grow wings and leave. Looking very much like winged ants, most termite swarms usually occur from dusk or during the night after a rainfall and can be spotted around light sources or illuminated windows. There are a few species that swarm during the day. Once a male and female termite mate and become a new royal couple, a new colony is formed.

When this phenomenon occurs around the foundation or inside your home, it’s a very good indication you have a termite infestation. Swarmers found outside near old wood, tree stumps or railroad ties may not be a clear indication you have a problem yet. You may not be able to distinguish on your own if these insects have invaded your home, so it’s a good idea to call a licensed inspector to inspect.

Drywood termites are subterranean, meaning they live in the ground and build mud tunnels inside your home and throughout the walls. Because they work from the inside out, they can cause extensive damage before you even take notice. In fact, you could have termites invading your home for several years before they are discovered. Termites prefer to devour the inside sections of the wood, leaving the harder shell that has a honey-comb layered hollow area. Often, they seem to appear overnight, causing damage to base and crown moldings and around electrical switches.

Fortunately, these termites are often treated with baits instead of tenting your home, and by using our least toxic methods of extermination, you can stay in your home while it is being treated. Derived from orange rinds, our products leave no toxic residue behind, reduces risks from chemical exposure and it works as well as other traditional treatment methods.

What To Expect On The Day of Treatment

In previous blog posts, we’ve discussed the Benefits of Orange Oil as treatment for termites, What A Good Home Inspection Looks Like, and Questions To Ask a Home Inspector; in the final installment of this series, we’ll show you what to expect on the day of treatment to eliminate any surprises.

The day has arrived: your home will finally be rid of termites using Orange Oil – Congratulations!  Here’s some things you can be aware of and expect on the day of treatment:

  • There’s no need to vacate your home during treatment!
  • You will have a lovely orange scent for 4-6 days after treatment. How long the scent lasts will depend several factors, such as on the airflow in the area treated and the humidity.
  • The average home has 8-15 infestations. Each will be drilled, treated, and patched. They will not be drilling and treating every board in your house, only the actively infested ones.
  • Areas with open framing, such as attics, crawlspaces, and garages, are not normally patched after treatment.
  • Most treatments of single family residences can be completed within a single day. If your treatment is going to take longer, they will have discussed that with you before hand. Typically, you can expect 1 to 2 workers to be at your property for the day. They will be using ladders, tarps, drills, and other tools. When they first arrive, they will check in with you and discuss where they will be treating and how long they expect everything to take.
  • Ask someone to do a walk through of the findings and treatment with you. This can be the inspector who first comes to your house or the technician that is there on the day of treatment. You should ask to be shown the infested areas that were found and have the recommended treatment explained to you. During the inspection, the inspector should have found and included in his report any conducive conditions needing repaired. These should also be pointed out and explained to you.
  • In most areas, you should not see any frass (droppings) after treatment. However, if the infestation is around a door frame or in garage framing near a garage door that gets opened frequently, then the vibrations from opening and closing doors will cause frass still within the wood to sift out over the course of a few weeks following treatment. This is normal and should lessen and then stop within a short time. If the frass increases over time or continues for longer than expected, then call and request a service call.

The above talks about what to expect. By choosing orange oil, you get to avoid a lot of hassle that you would have faced with one of the more traditional tenting treatment methods. Here are some of the things you can enjoy NOT expecting on the day of treatment:

  • Having to vacate your home, typically for about 3 days.
  • The embarrassment of having a “circus tent” around your home.
  • Interrupting your schedule.
  • Security concerns for your empty house.
  • Boarding pets during the treatment.
  • Having to leave your windows wide open.
  • Turning your gas off…
  • Then paying to turn it back on.
  • Bagging up medicines and other important items.
  • Replacing dead vegetation that was up against the house.
  • Opening all attic holes.
  • Opening all closets and cabinets before you leave.
  • Re-aligning your satellite dish.
  • Unplugging your electrical appliances.
  • Removing all fish from any fish tanks…
  • Then, cleaning and reintroducing the fish to the tank after treatment.
  • Removing indoor plants.
  • Repairing any roof damage.

As you can see, choosing other methods to treat termites in your home can be a lot of headaches and hassle that you simply do not need to worry about when you treat your home with Orange Oil.

Questions To Ask A Home Inspector

Questions to ask a home inspector

In a previous blog post, we discussed What A Good Home Inspection Looks Like. This post will equip you with questions for your home inspector that will make you more knowledgeable of the treatment process.

Some questions to ask your home inspector:

  • What type of treatment is recommended?
  • How long will the treatment take?
  • How much will it cost?
  • How long will it take to get rid of the termites?
  • How long will it take to see results? (Depending on how a product works, it can take days or weeks for a product to eliminate the infestation. The inspector may also explain that sometimes it is normal to continue to see evidence for a few weeks after treatment even if the termites have been killed. For example, if you had termites in a door frame around a door that is frequently opened and closed, the vibrations from using the door may cause pellets in the galleries to shift and fall out for a few weeks after treatment. This is normal, but should lessen over time. The inspector should explain that if you are still seeing pellets after 2-4 weeks, you should call and request a service call.)
  • What repairs are recommended to fix any conducive conditions that were found? (Conducive conditions should be fixed to lessen the chance of future infestations. An example would be a plumbing leak that is moistening wood in a subarea. That moist wood and soil is ideal for subterranean termites. Chipped paint or dry rot on eaves around a house are another example, as these conditions make it easier for drywood termite swarmers to enter the wood and start a new colony.)
  • What does the warranty cover?
  • How long will the warranty last?
  • What type of contract or guarantee is offered?
  • Will I get an annual inspection during the warranty period? If so, will the company call to remind me and schedule the appointment or is it up to me to remember?
  • Ask for a walk through after the inspection is complete if the inspector found active infestation and/or conducive conditions. The inspector should be willing to show you the problem areas and explain what the findings mean.

Once you receive the report, if you have any questions, be sure to ask the inspector to go over it with you.  Remember, get multiple bids to compare findings, pricing, and warranty details.

These tips and questions will prepare you for your home inspection and make you a more informed homeowner.
