Boat Inspections For Termites & Wood-Destroying Insects

Termite maintenance is necessary to maintain the structural integrity of your boat. If left untreated, termite infestations can cause widespread damage to boats and other watercraft.

Boats serve as an excellent food source for termites, offering plenty of wood to feed on and the moist conditions that create a perfect environment for termites to thrive. Our highly trained inspectors will perform a termite inspection of your boat the same way they would inspect a home. During this evaluation, the inspector will identify any evidence of termites to better prepare for your fumigation service.

Don’t take an unnecessary risk! Retain the value and structural integrity of your watercraft by scheduling a termite inspection for your vessel today with A-1 Bonded Termite.

How To Spot The Signs Of Termites On Your Boat

If you suspect that termites are aboard your boat, drywood termites could be the culprit. Since wood comprises many different boat components, your marine vessel can become a prime target for a termite colony. Even a fiberglass boat can be susceptible to a termite infestation, depending on the construction. So, how can you spot termites on your boat?

Termites can be very sneaky creatures. Since termites create tunnels within wood, they’re not often visible on the surface. As a result, a colony of termites can cause damage for years before they are ever detected. However, termites do offer a few warning signs that they are around. Here are a few common signals of termites:

Termite Frass

First, you might notice a pile of pellets that looks similar to wood shavings or sawdust. These piles are termite frass or termite fecal matter. Termites don’t like to clutter their tunnels with frass, so they create a “kick-out” hole for their droppings. You might also notice small holes within walls or structures near the frass piles, which indicate where the termites are tunneling.

Discarded Wings

Another visible indicator of termites is their discarded wings. When termites reach their reproductive stage, they begin to swarm, mate, and create new colonies. Once they find the right place to build their new nest, they discard their wings. Discarded termite wings resemble fish scales, and you can usually spot them near common entry points such as doorways or window sills.

If you’re wondering how termites can gain access to your boat, they might have flown from a nearby ship or dock during this reproductive stage.

Visible Damage

After a colony has progressed, you might begin to notice more visible signs of termite damage. For example, damaged wood that starts to crumble, buckling floorboards, stuck doors, warped or blistering wood, and peeling paint are all signs that point to a termite infestation. However, you might also mistake these signals with weathering or aging over time.

Don’t ignore the signs of termites! Instead, call A-1 Bonded Termite today at (714) 502-9230 for a termite inspection for your boat.
