Keeping a year round pest control treatment schedule is key to keeping these pests controlled all year long.

Safe Pest Control

And “tenting” — basically wrapping and fumigating your entire home — is the most common way to dispatch drywood termites. The good news is many of the termite control methods available today are just as, if not more, effective than the toxic exterminations.
