Culver City Termite Control Experts
For many people, their home is their biggest investment. Termites can be a huge threat to that investment. Every year termites cause an estimated $5 billion dollars in termite damage and termite control costs. Shockingly, that is more that all the earthquakes, fires, and hurricanes in the country combined. A termite’s life revolves around consuming cellulose and reproducing. Termites are quite useful in nature because they recycle dead trees into useful compost that enriches the soil. In your home all they do is cause costly damage.

We can help you with all aspects of termite control, including the termite inspection, termite treatments and termite damage repairs. You can depend on our inspectors and technicians to be respectful, friendly, and reliable.
Termites Found in Culver City Homes and Businesses
Termites are located in many parts of the world and they are very common in Culver City. Termites damage more than 600,000 homes each year costing U.S. households $5 billion dollars every year. That’s more than all the fires, earthquakes and hurricanes combined. The two most common types of termites found in Culver City are Drywood Termites and Subterranean Termites.
Drywood termites are usually dark brown or reddish brown. The reproductive Drywoods have wings that extend longer than their bodies and the soldiers have heads and mandibles that are very large compared to the size of their bodies. Drywood Termites spend their entire life inside the wood they are eating so they can be difficult to locate until they start pushing out termite pellets or the reproductive termites swarm to start new colonies. The colonies can get as large as 100,000 members.
Subterranean Termites are smaller than Drywood Termites and the reproductive swarmers are black. What the Subterranean Termites lack in size, they make up for in numbers and the amount of damage they cause. Subterranean termite colonies can have as many as 1 million members and they cause more damage to structures than any other insect. Subterranean Termites live underground and they create mud tubes to remain hidden and protected as they gain access to the wood in homes and other structures.
