Western Drywood Termite
Western Drywood Termite in Anaheim, CA and Surrounding Areas
The western drywood termites are most prevalent in Southern California but can also be found in Northern California and the Southern California desert. Drywood termites can be difficult to detect and live deep inside structural wood, furniture, fences, door and window frames, etc. Colonies can be widely dispersed and take years to mature. After the colony has matured, swarmers are produced to leave the colony and establish new colonies. Typically Drywood termites swarm between August and October as the weather becomes increasingly hot, but they can swarm anytime if the conditions are right. However, certain environmental conditions can trigger additional swarming activity such as heat, light, moisture conditions, and wind.
Drywood termites are weak flyers and only a small number of the swarmers survive to develop a new colony. The majority of the swarmers fall prey to predators or die from dehydration or injury. Drywood termites typically enter structures through attic vents, open windows/doors, foundation vents, or exhaust fans. Drywood termites will not enter wood that has a sound coat of paint.
Generally, the first sign of drywood termites to a homeowner is the evidence of fecal pellets or evidence of a termite swarm inside of the structure. If you think you have a termite infestation in your house, you need to call a structural pest control company to conduct a professional inspection. If your home is determined to have a termite infestation, there are two options: whole-house eradication (fumigaton/tenting) or locally treating the areas of infestation. Your termite inspector will recommend an individualized treatment plan specific to your home.

JOB WELL DONE
This is my second time using A-1. Wind blew open the tarp cover. I contacted A-1 and they were out to fix and re-gas without any impact to the schedule. I will use them again.
Great Customer Service
I had a problem with termites and called A1 bond. They were very friendly and responded quickly by sending a crew out to assess and fix the problem. They treated the termites, replaced some dry rot wood and repaired the stucco where the wood was exposed. I couldn’t have asked for more. The price was very reasonable for the work they did.
5 star service from every person! I highly recommend A-1 Bonded!
I have worked with A-1 Bonded since about 2003. As a Realtor in OC I have worked with them during transactions where I represent buyers and sellers. They are meticulous in their inspections and excellent in their work. I also use them for our personal homes and commercial buildings. From the people in the office to the guys in the field they are professional, great to work with and do a great job.
Would absolutely recommend to everyone!
The whole experience was stress free. The guys did a superb job, were friendly, and knew exactly what they were doing. The trim that was replaced and painted looks great. Thank you so much for making this a painless experience.
Professional, competent, friendly service
I was referred to A-1 Bonded Termite service from a friend who had used them in the past. After getting bids for termite treatment and wood repair from a few companies, I decided A-1 Bonded was best for our job. During inspection, Geoff explained what he was looking for and methods to resolve the findings. He and the other workmen for our job promptly showed up to our appointment times and completed the work as promised - quick and efficient. I felt like our home was in competent hands from the inspection to the work performed to remedy our termite problems and dry rot issues.
