Powder Post Beetles & Old House Borers
Although homeowners are often less aware of the risks to their homes posed by fungus than the risks from termites, wood destroying fungus is almost as common an issue for homeowners as subterranean termites. Fungi such as white rot and brown rot cause destruction by secreting enzymes into the wood that convert the wood into usable food. Over time, these enzymes weaken the wood and can lead to structural failure.
The first step to combating wood destroying fungi or mold is a thorough inspection of the structure. An Extermco Pest Control professional will determine what, exactly, is causing the infestation. Your professional will then implement a treatment plan tailored to your situation, which often involves some type of moisture control. Whether it’s eliminating wood destroying fungus from underneath your home or eliminating mold from a basement or storage building, Extermco can get it done.

The first step to combat termites is a thorough termite inspection by an Extermco professional. Warped or “wavy” drywall or flooring, termite swarmers, or mud tubes are just a few of the signs of a termite infestation.
After inspection, Extermco will create a termite treatment plan specific to your home. Each home’s foundation is unique, as is every termite colony.
An Extermco professional will treat your home, eliminating termites and preventing future costly termite damages. This may include directly treating the soil in and around your home or drilling into the structure’s foundation and injecting termiticides.
Perhaps most importantly, an Extermco professional will continue to inspect your home every year, giving you peace of mind. Termite treatments from Extermco come with a guarantee bond, renewable for as long as you own your home.
