Before our pest control professionals can control a termite infestation, they will have first to inspect your home or business. Even if you already know you have termites, we’ll still have to perform a thorough WDO (Wood Destroying Organism) inspection. Why do we need to do that? Because termite infestations, more often than not, encompass several different areas of your home. In other words, you might know you have termites in one area, but unaware of termites somewhere else in your home.
During a termite inspection (also called a WDO, or Wood Destroying Organism inspection), our Sacramento termite control professionals will:
Generally, a termite inspection takes between 30 and 45 minutes to complete. However, that depends on the size of the home or business we’re inspecting.
The first step is to determine if you have a termite problem. We begin with a complete termite inspection (WDO inspection) by looking for common termite signs. We provide a detailed analysis report with action steps.
During this phase, our exterminators will first listen to your concerns about the pests that are invading your home or business. We will also identify the type of pests you’re infested with and recommend a variety of unique solutions to your pest problem.
Depending on the severity of the termite damage, the third step involves repairs. Our wood repair division has expert carpenters trained to repair or replace wooden structures destroyed by termites.
After we have attacked and defeated your pest problem, we ensure that your home is Pest Free with on-going and continuous service. We regularly re-enforce the protective barrier and inspect your home for new early signs of pest infestations.
A wood-destroying organism inspection (WDO inspection) is just a fancy term for a termite inspection. Most often, you’ll need a WDO inspection in the following situations:
WDO inspections don’t only involve looking for termites. These inspections also look for evidence of wood decay, wood-eating beetles, damage to wood, and past WDO treatments.
Yes, Millennium Termite & Pest is an officially credentialed Wood Destroying Organism inspection company. We have received the necessary and continuing training, equipment, and insurance required to provide you with top-quality inspection services. So, if you’ve been looking for a credentialed and licensed WDO inspection company, then you’ve come to the right place.
Once our termite experts have inspected your home and determined the type of termites you have, it’s time for termite removal in Sacramento. There are three different methods for exterminating termite infestations, and the method used depends on the type of termite infestation you have. Let’s break down your treatment
Fumigation is the process of covering your home or business with a tent and then filling the said tent with misted pesticides. Those pesticides will find their way into every nook and cranny in your building and eliminate any termites on the property. Fumigation is the recommended treatment method for wood-boring beetles, drywood termites, and dampwood termites. Unfortunately, and contrary to popular belief, fumigation (or “tenting”) will not kill subterranean termites. If you have subterranean termites, then you’ll need a combination of liquid spot treatments, bait treatments, and other methods.
Another method for removing termites is the Sentricon Bait System. The Sentricon Bait System involves placing poisoned termite bait anywhere that worker termites feed. Then, the workers take the poisoned bait back to the colony to share with its colony mates. With repeated applications, the Sentricon Bait System will eradicate the infestation from the inside out. The Sentricon Bait System is the recommended termite removal method for
Liquid spot treatment termite removal in Sacramento involves applying pesticides to the colony and food sources directly. Spot treatments need to be applied regularly to remain effective. Spot treatments are best for small subterranean termite infestations.
Termites cause nearly $5 billion in damages to homes and businesses every year. So, naturally, after we have eradicated your termite infestation, you’ll need termite damage repair work.Luckily, the pest control experts at

Termites cost home and business owners more than $5 billion in treatment and repair costs annually. And, to make things worse, there are several different types of termites in Sacramento. The most common ones are as follows:
As the name suggests, subterranean termites live in underground colonies. They build tunnels called “mud tubes” to reach food sources and protect themselves from the environment. Subterranean termites prefer moist and secluded areas. Subterranean termites are the most destructive of the three common species around Sacramento.
To remove subterranean termites, our pest control professionals will use one or both of two different treatment options. The first option is to use the “Sentricon Baiting System,” and the second option is a liquid pesticide treatment.
With the Sentricon Bait System, our pest control experts will lay down poisoned termite bait. The workers in the termite colony take the poisoned bait back to the settlement, which helps kill the queen and prevent reproduction.
With liquid treatments, our pest control professionals will apply pesticides to the colony and food sources to kill any termites on contact.
Unlike subterranean termites, drywood termites build their colonies above the ground and in dry areas. They
feed on any wood that they come in contact with. Drywood termites also rapidly spread by swarming.
The best treatment option for drywood termites is to fumigate your home or business. Fumigation is the better choice of treatment for drywood termites. It works well because of their proclivity to swarm and spread. Fumigation will destroy 100% of the termites in your home or business, which will, in turn, eliminate the entire colony and prevent reinfestation.
As their name implies, dampwood termites make their colonies in water-damaged wood. Colonies include swarmers, soldiers, a queen, and young. Like drywood termites, dampwood termites swarm and spread with relative ease.
If you have a dampwood termite infestation, then treatment is a two-pronged operation. First, you need to spot-treat or fumigate the colony to kill any living termites. Then, the water-damaged wood where the termites made their home needs to be removed from your property. Generally, with dampwood termites, the Sacramento termite control professionals at Millennium Termite & Pest recommends ongoing and continuous treatment to prevent reinfestations.
