Termite Control Newport Beach
For many people in Newport Beach, their home is their biggest investment. Termites can be a major threat to that investment. Termites cause an estimated $5 billion dollars in termite damage and termite control costs every year in the United States. That is more that all the earthquakes, fires, and hurricanes combined. A termite’s life is pretty simple. It mostly involves consuming cellulose and reproducing. Termites are useful in nature because they recycle dead trees into compost. 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 Newport Beach Homes and Businesses
Termites are located in many parts of the world and they are very common in Newport Beach because of the mild climate. The two most common types of termites found in this area are Drywood Termites and Subterranean Termites.
Drywood termites are typically dark brown or reddish brown. The reproductive Drywood Termites have wings that extend longer than their bodies and the soldiers have heads and mandibles that are very large relative to the size of their bodies. Drywood Termites may 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 termites.
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. A Subterranean Termite colony may have as many as 1 million members. They are found in many parts of the world 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.
