You can never fully understand how important termite inspection in San Diego truly is for the sake of your house unless you have suffered the ravages and home structural damage caused by a California termite attack. These horrible pests can wreak havoc and ruin on your wood-built house in a matter of a single silent and unnoticed infestation over a period of only a few years. While there are several different types of termites to harass you in the Golden State, drywood termites are some of the hardest to detect.
Detecting Drywood Termites
The real problem with drywood termites lies in the difficulty of detecting these cryptic insects. They live and hide deep down inside of wood. You might never even see or be aware of them unless you are fortunate enough to catch them swarming or if you have repair work done on your house.
In a recent poll about termite-infested cities, four California cities made their way on to the top ten list. San Diego came in fourth while Los Angeles topped the list. That isn’t anything San Diegans celebrate; after all, the average cost of termite damage is $8,184 according to a study conducted by Harris Interactive—and termite damage is usually not covered by insurance.
