There are many treatment options available for Drywood Termites. While fumigations are our primary recommendation for exterminating an extensive or heavy infestation of drywood termites, Rocky’s Termite & Pest Control, Inc. employs several other less invasive secondary termite treatment options without the hassle of tent fumigation. Rocky’s Termite & Pest Control, Inc.’s technicians are experts at locally treating for drywood termites. We offer local treatments for nearly any infestation, whether it be in a home, an apartment, multi-unit complex and/or building. After inspecting your structure, your termite technician will create a customized plan of action for the treatment of your structure.
Signs of Termite Activity
Reproductive termites leave the nest and fly to new locations to spread the infestation.

- Cost Less
- Don’t require you to move out of your home temporarily
- Carry the same 2 year warranty as fumigation with the option to purchase continuing coverage.
We use the most modern dry wood termite eradication techniques available. The chemical we prefer, contains the active ingredient Fipronil, which is part of a non-repellent termiticide which is undetectable to termites, allowing termites to forage freely in a treated area. Once a termite contacts the termiticide, it becomes a “carrier. Fipronil is then passed from one termite to another through grooming and incidental contact. This products works slowly, letting termites contact many others before dying themselves.

Important: It is a good idea for all wood structures to be inspected for termites at least once every 3 years. Termites cause tremendous structural damage that can be very costly to repair, so it is expedient that termites and their colonies be eliminated as soon as possible to prevent further destruction.
Only a licensed termite inspection specialist can determine the extent of your termite infestation. However, you can detect the presence of termites quite easily. Look around your home for these tell-tale signs of termite activity:

As termites tunnel through wood, they use “kick out” holes to discard fecal pellets and frass. Termites bore through wood, leaving holes to “kick-out” waste material.
Subterranean termites build shelter tubes to gain access to your home. Subterranean termites live in the soil and build tubes through the base of the structure to infest the wood members
Looks like Coffee Grind. As termites tunnel through wood, they “kick out” fecal pellets into small mounds. As termites eat their way through your structure, they discard their waste via kick-out holes. These pellets can be found in small piles below infested areas.
Winged reproductive termites appear after periods of heavy rain or in late summer & early fall. Reproductive termites leave the nest and fly to new locations to spread the infestation.
All termites tunnel through wood, weakening the structure of your home. Termites work “hand in hand” will fungus to further damage the wood of your structure.
