Wood Destroying Organisms

Wood-destroying organisms, also known as WDOs, are a common threat to homes and buildings made of wood. If left unchecked, these pests can cause extensive damage to a building's structure. 

Wood-destroying organisms can enter a building through cracks, crevices, or other openings in the structure. Once inside, they can quickly multiply and spread throughout the wood, causing damage that may not be immediately visible. Valley Pest Control can help identify and eliminate these pests before they cause irreparable harm to your property.

Our WDO services include protection from: 

  • Termites
  • Carpenter Ants
  • Wood-Boring Beetles

Our team of experienced technicians can thoroughly inspect your property to identify any signs of wood-destroying organisms. We will then develop a customized treatment plan to eliminate pests and prevent future infestations effectively.

How to Identify Carpenter Ants vs Termites

Identifying carpenter ants vs termites can be challenging, as both pests can cause similar damage to wood structures. However, there are some key differences that can help you differentiate between the two:

  • Physical Appearance: Termites have straight antennae, a thick waist, and wings of equal size. Carpenter ants, on the other hand, have elbowed antennae, a narrow waist, and wings of unequal size.
  • Wood Damage: Termites typically eat wood from the inside out, leaving behind hollowed-out tunnels. Carpenter ants, on the other hand, excavate galleries in wood but do not actually consume it.
  • Frass: Termite infestations often leave behind tiny pellets of termite droppings called "frass," which resembles sawdust. Carpenter ants, on the other hand, do not produce frass.

If you suspect an infestation in your home, it is best to contact a professional pest control service for a thorough inspection and treatment plan. With our expertise and effective treatments, you can say goodbye to wood-destroying organisms and enjoy a pest-free home once again.
