Drywood Termites and Historic Buildings
Sonoma County is an amazing place to live and work, so rich in history and full of life and just about perfect weather all year around. One part of life in Sonoma county is the drywood termite.
As a local termite company, EXCELLENCE EXTERMINATING CO. INC was honored with the contract to provide Inspection and treatment service to The Bell Tower of the Sonoma town square building.
Working on an old building like the Sonoma Town Square Bell Tower is very exciting and a fantastic opportunity to study the drywood termites. We know the building is around 100 years old. The trees used in the construction of this old building may be well over a 1,000 years old.
An old wise tale says that termites will not eat redwood. We know this to be a false tale.
Redwood trees first cut down and still fresh have a black sap-stain that is a natural inhibitor against termites, wood boring beetles and wood destroying fungi. But as the new cut boards dry out, the redwood board can then be eaten by Termites and Beetles.
Ron Bibler is A Level 1 ASNT Certified Thermogapher. American Society for Nondestructive Testing. With the use of our BX320 FLIR Infrared Thermal Imaging camera we can see the amount of wood a termite has excavated out of the center of a board. This is very important to our inspection of a historic building.
EXCELLENCE EXTERMINATING CO. INC. offers a five year guarantee to protect your home from the infestation of subterranean termites.
Remember if you have termites or wood boring beetles, you may have structural damage.
