Our licensed and experienced inspectors will inspect your home to determine what method of treatment or if any repairs are necessary. We will issue a wood destroying organism report with our findings and an itemized bid. You may read through the report on your property and choose with which items with which you would like to proceed.
Treatment methods will vary depending on the type of infestation. You will need a licensed inspector to determine the method that is best for you.
DRYWOOD TERMITES: Local treatments are designed to eradicate an infestation of a particular area. They are not intended to work for the entire structure, however they can be performed in lieu of fumigation as a secondary method.
SUBTERRAEAN TERMITES: When treating subterranean termites, the infested earth will need to be treated to eradicate the colony.
FUNGUS INFECTION: Usually the fungus infected wood will need to be removed. If there is no damage, the fungi can be scraped off of the wood and treated with a fungicide.
OTHER INFESTATIONS: Treatment for other wood destroying organisms vary, however the methods are similar to the treatment of termites.
A Fumigation may be needed in order to ensure total eradication of drywood termite infestation in a structure. You will need a licensed inspector to make that determination. If a fumigation is recommended, unless you selling your property, a secondary recommendation of local treatments can be performed in lieu of the fumigation; these methods will only be effective in areas that can be seen and are not meant for treatment over an entire structure. If you choose to proceed with a recommended fumigation, we will walk you through the process step by step. The structure is covered to create a sealed environment and poisonous gas released. The gas used will be Vikane: active ingredient sulfuryl fluoride. The gas is toxic while the structure is being fumigated, but once the property is cleared for re-entry there are no residuals left behind. *FOR MORE INFORMATION CALL (626) 792-4154. *FUMIGATIONS OUR SUBCONTRACTED TO A BRANCH I LICENSED COMPANY.
