Termites are small, winged insects that live in colonies underground. These pests are attracted to wood because it contains cellulose, which they feed on. While termites typically eat dead wood, they can also damage living trees and shrubs. If left unchecked, a termite infestation can cause significant damage to a home’s wooden structures, including the framing, floors, and walls.
Carpenter Ant Removal
Carpenter ants are a type of ant that is known for its wood-damaging habits. These pests excavate tunnels and galleries in wood to build their nests. While carpenter ants do not eat wood like termites, their tunnelling can still cause extensive damage.
Powder Post Beetle Removal
Powder post beetles are a type of insect that infests and damages wood. These pests bore into the surface of the wood, leaving small holes behind. As they feed on the wood, they excrete a powder-like substance that can cause an allergic reaction in some people.
Carpet Beetle Removal
Carpet beetles are small, winged insects that are attracted to homes because of the presence of carpets and other fabrics. These pests feed on a variety of materials, including wool, fur, silk, and feathers. Carpet beetles can cause damage to carpets and other fabrics in your home.
Old House Borer Removal
Old house borers are attracted to soft woods like pine and fir, many of which are used to construct homes. Infestations can be hard to spot, which allows these pests plenty of time to damage your home. The damage caused by old house borers can be extensive, and it is often necessary to replace the affected wood.
White and Brown Rot
This fungus attacks the cellulose and lignin in wood, causing it to become soft and spongy. White rot leaves the wood with a bleached appearance, while brown rot turns the wood dark brown or black. This fungus can cause extensive damage to wooden structures and should be removed as soon as possible.
