Tent Fumigation in Palm Beach County and Broward County
Many homeowner’s in Florida will experience a drywood termite problem in their home. Unlike subterranean termites which require excess moisture, drywood termites spend almost their entire life cycle inside the sound, dry wood upon which they feed.
