Prevent The Tent

Drywood termites can enter your home unnoticed and stay undetected (eating nonstop) for over five years.

How to get the NEW Drywood Defend System

Drywood termites are sneaky invaders

Drywood termites swarm to find a new home to infest. When they find one, they can enter through door and window frames, eaves and even the tiniest cracks of your home's exterior. Once in, they can feast for years. Worse still, you can have multiple infestations at one time.

Did you know?

  • Drywood termites can fly into your home unnoticed and infest for over five years before being detected.
  • They are focused eaters that demolish one area before migrating to another part of your home.
  • They cause expensive damage to rafters, studs, structural beams and joists.
  • Tenting (fumigation) kills active termites, but does not protect your home from future infestations.
  • A tenting treatment is time-consuming, requiring you to pack up your home and leave for days.

Your technician then treats entry points, such as weep holes and cracks or openings around windows, walls and doors.
