Non-Toxic Termite Treatment

Many Southern Californian’s are concerned about health and safety which has given rise to the increase in the demand for non-toxic and natural termite spot treatments. Fortunately, manufacturers have met this demand and we offer the two best options currently on the market. The cost of treatment depends on many factors such as the size of the affected areas and the method used. Currently we offer:

  • Bora Care 

  • Orange Oil

We have listed these in order of preference. Bora Care, in our experience, lasts the longest and provides a better all-round protection against re-infestation. Orange Oil termite treatment is well-known and a reasonably effective alternative to Bora Care, and is certainly less invasive than fumigating your property. Fumigation is the least attractive proposition as it requires you to move out of your property during the process. We reserve this option for the worst cases, where nothing else is viable.

Fumigation Pest Control Companies In Laguna Woods

Firstly, there is no such thing as cheap fumigation, and if there is, you should probably avoid it, after-all your home is likely your largest asset. As mentioned above, we do everything possible to avoid tenting for termites in the first place, but sometimes there is no other option. The cost of tenting will primarily be determined by the size of your property and it’s accessibility. Unlike many of our competitors who spend a fortune on advertising we prefer to rely on our reputation and reviews. Being in the industry since 1997, and one of the better known local companies you can be sure you are in good hands with Affordable Termite Control.

We understand fumigation is a headache you could do without whether it’s for your primary residence, a vacation home, rental property or your office building which is why we give you a fair price right away, we won’t be as cheap as “Joe Schmo” and we won’t gauge you on price. Working with a specialist termite company makes far more sense than hiring a generic pest control company and trusting a random stranger with your property. With us, you get the same service everyone else receives. For us it’s personal.

Too many homeowners to not pay attention to warnings to have their home regularly checked for termites, or they try and use the products sold in stores to treat the infestation. These are big mistakes, and within a short period of time a simple termite control project in Laguna Woods can turn into a full scale fumigation nightmare.

Termite Damage Repair Laguna Woods, CA

Termites can do a lot of damage to wood if left unchecked. Did you know they can raze a house to the ground, given enough time?  Of course they rarely get the opportunity but without regular checking significant damage can occur. The only way to defend against termites is through regular inspections from a professional termite company. Unfortunately they don’t leave calling cards letting you know they’ve invaded your home until they’ve eaten away at your property.

We are experts in repairing termite damage in Laguna Woods because we get plenty of practice! We will always attempt to repair whatever wood they have been busy chewing on, unless you prefer to have it replaced, of course. We’ll cut away anything that’s in too bad shape, fill or cover up the gap and then sand it down and paint over to match your existing woodwork. You can be sure that the area will look good as new and nobody will ever know they (or we) were there!

Don’t forget that termite damage is not limited to the extremities of your property such as doors, windows, soffits and eaves. They regularly find homes in fences, pergolas and other wooden structures close to your house. From there they spread into your property. Be sure to visually check areas that have peeling paint or are out of the line of sight because it’s just possible they are lurking there already.

How Exterminators Indentify Termites

Dampwood termites are found in damp or rotten wood so they are more easily identified by people looking for obvious signs of termites. Drywood termites are so-called because as the name suggests they live in dry conditions. They need little water or soil to be able to survive. This makes them more sinister and dangerous. Homeowners can be forgiven for introducing termites into their home by taking home a piece of furniture from a yard sale or thrift store. Drywood termites are definitely more of a pest than their cousins because they need the tiniest hole in order to gain access into the wood, so pretty much everywhere on a property is susceptible.

Frass (drywood termite droppings) are a sure sign of the presence of termite activity. To make room for their nests as they burrow into your wood they will drill a hole and push their droppings out. If you see evidence of frass you should contact us right away. Treating them at the source is essential in eradicating them before they spread further. Local termite treatment such as injecting the walls is always preferable than a full scale evacuation for tenting.

The Termite Inspection Process

When looking for an exterminator in Laguna Woods you will come across many ads and alternatives. The most important criteria should be hiring the best termite company rather than the cheapest. You simply don’t want to cut corners when it comes to termites. We perform a thorough inspection of your entire property, including outbuildings such as garages and sheds, the soil and of course your attic. When it comes to termites it’s important to inspect everywhere, inside, outside and underneath and this is where hiring a random pest control company can be a problem. Hire a local termite treatment company like Affordable Termite Control.
