Protecting Your Southern California Home From Termite Damage
When you think about dangers to your home, tiny bugs that rarely see the light of day are probably not the first thing that comes to mind. That's why you might be surprised to learn that termites are responsible for causing more damage to homes in the United States than fires, storms, and earthquakes combined.
The cost of termite damage is billions of dollars each year, and homeowners' insurance policies don't cover the repairs as they do for natural disasters. That's why it's important to get your Los Angeles County, Orange County, or Inland Empire home or business inspected, treated, and protected from termites. By taking action now, you'll save your structure from damage and your pocketbook from costly repair bills.
Our Termite Control Process
Identifying termites and the damage they cause is not as easy as it sounds. Termites spend their lives hidden away, so much of the damage they cause is hidden until it becomes extensive. In order to determine if termites are in your home or business or if termite damage is present, it helps to have pest control technicians who are skilled at identifying termite activity. Our qualified technicians will thoroughly inspect your building to look for signs you may not have even realized were present. These include the following:
- Mud tubes built for above-ground travel
- Damaged or hollow wood
- Pinholes in drywall or wallpaper
- Small piles of sawdust
- Piles of small wings
Once we've inspected your building and determined if termites are present, your termite control treatment can go in a few different directions. Your technician will make a recommendation based on the findings of the inspection. Our treatment methods include:
- Fumigation that we typically do for large, widespread infestations.
- A chemical barrier around the exterior of the building for active infestations and prevention.
- A chemical application applied directly to the pests that's effective against localized infestations.
- Green preventative treatments that prevent future infestations.
- Wood repairs if we find damage.
Termite Control Is A Good Investment
