July, 2020 was the wettest July in New Orleans weather history and Drywood Termite colonies are moving around!
Drywood termites need just a little bit of water to survive but they cannot regulate the amount of moisture in the wood like the other types of termites can. If their nest area gets too wet, they must move to a drier area. If it dries out too much, they have to move to a wetter spot. Wherever they are active, they will leave a pile of their poop (frass) that resembles coffee grounds and will be the same color as the wood they are eating.
CONTROL PRODUCTS: USE Premise Foam to kill the activity then follow up with Bora Care for long-term wood protection.
