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 Termite Inspection and Termite 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 Pest Control like the drywood termite. 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.

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 drys 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.

Thanks for such a useful article.
Working on the old buildings is always exciting for specificity of our work.
Redwood is really hard to protect from termites and bad beetles, but if you do - in the end the beauty of the wood is amazing.
