Get an Inspection First
Getting a termite inspection prior to any termite treatments in Los Angeles County CA is necessary for two main reasons. Firstly, an inspection will tell you whether you have dry wood or subterranean termites or both. Secondly, the inspection will help determine the extent of the damage the termites have done to your wood. Which termite treatments will be most effective on your property will depend on this information.
Options for Termite Treatments in Los Angeles County CA
When it comes to termite treatments in Los Angeles County CA, you may need fumigation, XT 2000 Orange Oil Plus treatment, local treatment, or a combination of all three.
Fumigations: A fumigation requires you to leave your property for 3 days and 2 nights while Vikane gas is used to kill termites. Fumigations are effective against dry wood termites and offer the following benefits:
- Kills termites throughout the entire building
- Cost-effective for extensive infestations
- Safe when proper protocols are followed
- Leaves no toxic residues or by-products behind
- Plus, you use a product made from a renewable resource – citrus rinds!
- Affordable, and can be used to treat your home without tenting. SAVE money in not having to discard food, medicines, plant damage, boarding pets or your entire family
Local Treatments: If you have subterranean termites, you will need local treatments because these termites don’t live in wood and can escape from fumigations or XT 2000 Orange Oil Plus treatments. A local treatment can include a poison to kill termites already present or a repellent to deter visiting termite scouts. Benefits include:
- Poison bait can kill a whole colony if found by just one scout
- Local treatments can prevent future infestations
- Local treatments are the only method of killing subterranean termites
Often, more than one type of treatment is recommended for maximum effectiveness against termites. Ask your Escocia Termite inspector for details.
