Lake Forest Tent Fumigation Totally Removes Termites After Multiple Failed Spot Treatments

We are known for prioritizing spot treatment and regarding tent fumigation as a last resort. So we often get asked: “do spot treatments really get the job done?” The answer is yes—unless the colony is too large or has spread too much throughout the property! 

A Lake Forest client of ours had previously hired a well-known national pest control company to remove termites that had been damaging their home. Despite the reputation of the pest control brand, multiple attempts resulted in spot treatments that repeatedly failed. Unfortunately, the termites were never fully removed, costing our client time and money while causing frustration and fear

The homeowners almost lost hope and patience before calling us at Natural Science Exterminating! They asked if and how we could put an end to their nightmare. After a thorough inspection of the home, we discovered that the infestation had not been properly identified. We explained that the problem was deep and that tent fumigation should have been previously recommended to them. The client asked if we could carefully tent fumigate around their fragile arbors and pergolas. Our answer was yes! 

Keep reading to learn about the benefits of tent fumigation and why it is sometimes the best solution for recurring termites!

The Life Of A Termite 

Termites are a resilient and crafty species of insects with remarkable abilities. A single termite exists solely for the purpose of its colony to survive and propagate. Each termite has a designated role in sustaining its colony: reproducing, gathering resources, building, swarming, and more. 

Cellulose is their food source, which they obtain from eating wood, which is the material used to build the structures of homes across the country.

The drive to survive is deeply entrenched in the DNA of a termite and its colony. As such, to truly remove a termite problem means an exterminator must remove every single member of a colony from the property. A termite colony may contain hundreds to millions of individual critters; any treatment that misses a spot or leaves any survivors is an incomplete job. 

The Benefits Of Tent Fumigation 

There are several reasons why a spot treatment fails. Typically, a spot treatment fails if the exterminator’s inspection fails to discover the full extent of the problem. 

Tent fumigation is a termite treatment that leaves no stone unturned. Stubborn colonies stand no chance against tent fumigation, as the fumigant reaches every nook and cranny, even areas that aren’t accessible with other methods. Tent fumigation does not require multiple attempts, which can make life easier for owners and occupants. To ensure safety, people, pets, plants, food, medication, and elements of life are to be vacated from the premises before the property is sealed and a gaseous termiticide is released. After a designated waiting period, the property is free of termites and safe to live in.

While we regard tent fumigation as a last resort, it is sometimes the only effective treatment for severe infestations. It kills the opportunity for young offspring to develop, removing the entire colony including the eggs. 

The ultimate goal of extermination, whether through spot treatment or tent fumigation, is to ensure that every termite and trace of the colony is removed. In some cases, spot treatment and even natural solutions can achieve this perfectly. In other cases, nothing else except tent fumigation will come close to getting the job done. 

An excellent exterminator will make the right call—talk to us today and we’ll give you a free assessment of all the possible options.

Dana Point Remodel Rescued By Termite Spot Treatment & Wood Repair

The start of a home remodel is like waking up to the smell of your favorite coffee—as you inhale the aroma, you exhale excitement and determination. You envision how your dreams will soon become reality, and nothing can stand in your way. 

Unfortunately, life has a way of throwing a wrench in even the most meticulous plans and blueprints. Wrenches are tools that contractors use. And if you have hired a trustworthy contractor or team, they will act in your best interests when the unexpected arises. A shocking discovery in the midst of a remodel is what called us at Natural Science Exterminating to a site in Dana Point, Orange County, California. 

What looked like old coffee grounds at the baseboards turned out to be the remnants of an active termite infestation. Luckily, this property owner had hired Inspired Remodels, who advised the client to invite us to inspect the site, remove the termites, and replace the damaged wood.

Does Removing Termites During A Remodel Require Demolition?

Whether you hire a remodeling contractor or do it yourself, it is incredibly important to call an exterminator as soon as you discover termites, even if it stalls your remodel. Termites are pests that cause billions of dollars of damage to homes across the country every year.

A demolition is sometimes the best approach for certain remodels in the same way that tent fumigation is sometimes the best solution for certain infestations. However, any credible professional will not opt for these methods purely as an easy fix, or purely for the sake of profit, if a more strategic and affordable option would be of better service.

Our client as well as the team at Inspired Remodels agreed not to do a full demolition. Both parties emphasized the importance of removing the termites and restoring the structural integrity in a complete and timely manner, so that the project could safely proceed. We collectively agreed on a strategic approach: termite removal spot treatment combined with wood replacement to ensure that all areas that had been infested and damaged would become good as new. Furthermore, this allowed the client to avoid unnecessarily spending time and money on a full demolition. 

Spot removal preserves what is perfectly fine to keep. This approach notably requires a thorough inspection by experienced and discerning eyes to distinguish what can be preserved versus what must be treated and replaced. The latter is imperative for safety and prevention of further deterioration.  

To replace the materials and structures that had been damaged, Inspired Remodels acted in the best interests of our mutual client by referring the job to us. A collaborative decision was made to hire Natural Science Exterminating’s carpenters, who have both the experience and training to detect and replace termite-infested wood. This decision allowed both sets of experts to ensure that the project was executed and completed to the highest standard of excellence for our respective services. Once our work was done, Inspired Remodels proceeded to perform excellent craftsmanship without any interference from pests. 

When it comes to removing termites and treating damage on your property during construction, remodeling, or anything unexpected, you need an exterminator you can trust. Call Natural Science Exterminating to learn about our comprehensive pest control and management solutions.

Triumph Over Termites in San Clemente Apartment Tent Fumigation

There is nothing more exciting than a fresh new beginning. But sometimes, second chances are just as good as the first, if not better. Second chances represent hope, positivity, and resilience, giving us opportunities to triumph over challenges.

We are proud to share the story of how our team at Natural Science Exterminating treated and replaced termite-damaged wood, giving a San Clemente fourplex a second chance at a new beginning.

Comprehensive Termite Extermination, Repair, And Prevention 

The revival of this apartment complex was comprehensive, from tent fumigation to carpentry wood replacement. 

Natural Science Exterminating is known for prioritizing natural solutions and localized spot treatments, considering tent fumigation as the last resort. However, we also believe in being honest and realistic about the effectiveness of each type of solution. We do not believe in overpromising what a natural or local treatment can do when tenting is truly necessary.

In this case, we inspected the property and explained to our client that we believed the apartment complex required tenting, due to the severity of the infestation. Our client confidently authorized us to proceed, acknowledging that our work is licensed, bonded, and guaranteed. 

With all living beings, food, and drugs removed from the premises, tent fumigation involves sealing the property and releasing a gaseous termiticide that enters every nook and cranny. The apartments were not occupied at the time, which provided the perfect window of opportunity for tent fumigation and carpentry wood replacement. We proceeded to thoroughly inspect the apartment complex to identify all layers of possible damage and dry rot, and to map carpentry around all plumbing and wiring connections before replacing the wood.

Pest Control Mistakes To Avoid 

Despite living together in colonies, termites can easily enter into a home and wreak havoc to its structures while remaining undetectable and hardly noticeable to humans. Collapsing floors, walls, and ceilings may seem to suddenly appear when they have in fact been deteriorating rapidly. A key mistake to avoid is ignoring what may seem like a few surface quirks or oddities in your home: discarded wings and mud tubes, as well as wood that appears warped, sounds hollow, or feels moist. These signs must not be ignored and wished away. Do not put off calling an exterminator, as delaying inspection and treatment only gives termites more time to cause damage.

There are many ways to solve a potential pest problem and “prevention is the best cure.” Termites cause billions of dollars in damage to properties across the United States due to the fact that these critters directly feed on wood. Any property that has not been treated to prevent the wood from being a termite food source is at risk of being infested. Many properties are simply not treated during construction, which tends to be the only time the interior structures of a property are exposed to allow the wood to be directly treated by BoraCare. That said, a remodel that involves opening up walls, ceilings, and floors is an opportunity that should be seized to call a professional exterminator to Pest-Proof Your Remodel.

Professional Tent Fumigation and Repair

Natural Science Extermination has safely and successfully fumigated many properties for our clients. Tent fumigation and spot treatment are different techniques that are best suited for different types of  properties and infestations.

Mission Viejo Termite Extermination Of Spanish Tile Roofed Home

The Spanish tile roof is a classic element of homes in California, inspired by time honored Spanish architectural design. Traditionally made with clay or, nowadays, concrete, tile roofing is durable and well-suited to buildings exposed to heat and rainfall, thanks to their distinctive curvature and interlocking, as well as thermal regulating nature. 

When treated and maintained with care, Spanish tile roofs can outlast other forms of roofing, furthering it as being synonymous with visual elegance and longevity.

We are proud to share the story of how our team at Natural Science Exterminating had the honor of successfully treating a beautiful home with a Spanish tile roof in Mission Viejo.

Our job was to delicately balance structural preservation and pest removal. Time was of the essence, as any further termite damage would risk the integrity of everything surrounding and supporting the Spanish tile roof, not to mention the roof itself. 

Termite Extermination For Spanish Tile Roofing

The tale of pests is one as old as time. Termites infest an enormous number of properties across the United States every year, resulting in billions of dollars of damage. 

While tent fumigation is the most absolute method of eradicating termites, tenting was simply not an option here. Tile roofs, while long-lasting, can be fragile under certain conditions due to their weight. Tent fumigation is performed with a gaseous termiticide that can reach every nook and cranny within what is sealed within the tent. While necessary in certain severe infestations, Natural Science Exterminating considers tent fumigation as a last resort, equipped with expertise and prior experience in removing termites from homes with tile roofing.

Spot treatment is effective yet precise, removing termites from specifically planned areas of the property, rather than throughout its entirety. 

At the heart of our pest management solutions is commitment to the safety and health of our clients as well as a deep appreciation for the craftsmanship and unique characteristics of their homes. We treat each beam, tile, and part of the home as meticulously as fine art.

A complete solution involves inspection, treatment, and prevention. 

We conducted an inspection of the entire property to identify the infestation and property blueprint, including the tile roofing.

We successfully removed all termites from every corner of the property, including the roof, attic, garage, spot treating the infestation and its sources using specialized equipment and extension ladders to reach even the highest points.

Upon completing extermination, our final task was to preserve the home and its intrinsic historic beauty and heritage. We treated all exposed wood with BoraCare, a non-toxic, mineral salt based solution that prevents termites from creating damage by consuming wood for cellulose, their food source. BoraCare treatment lasts the life of the wood, preserving it to endure as long as the popularity and influence of Mediterranean style.

Alternatives To Tent Fumigation

Tent fumigation may be necessary in certain cases, but not all. Certain properties are not structurally suitable for tent fumigation due to limitations or restrictions. If an exterminator insists on tent fumigation, give Natural Science Exterminating a call first—we may be able to spot, treat or use natural solutions instead. 

Natural Science Extermination has safely and successfully fumigated many properties for our clients. Tent fumigation and spot treatment are different techniques that are best suited for different types of  properties and infestations.

Anaheim Hills Remodel & Termite Treatment Success Story

Change can be both exciting and scary, especially given the preparation and uncertainty involved making the right decision. Many people do not like change. Others tolerate change by taking small steps. And then there are the bold ones—people who like to say: “Go big or go home!”

Even bolder are those who have the appetite to go big and go home

We are proud to share the success story of our work in the remodeling project of a client who expanded their house by adding a new kitchen and new bedroom and repurposing the existing kitchen and bedroom into additional living space.

When we received the call to work for a client who was significantly expanding their home, we were excited to be a part of their big change. 

As professionals in pest control and prevention, we consider it an honor to be hired to make it so that your house is home only to you and yours—not home to pests. 

The Perfect Time For Pest Prevention

Termites cause billions of dollars of damage to homes every year in the United States. Their target? Wood cellulose. 

Remodeling is the perfect opportunity to pest-proof your home from the inside out. Under construction or remodeling are some of the only times walls and floors will be demolished and opened, providing access to the interior wooden structures of the home. 

Bora-Care is a low-toxicity solution of a borate salt that, when directly applied, prevents wood from becoming a termite food source. Professionally applying Bora-Care to exposed wood prevents termite damage, fungi, and rot throughout the life of the wood.

Pest Pre-Treatment & Inspection

Remodeling is often confused with renovating. While both projects aim to upgrade space, a remodel is ultimately a reconfiguration that involves extensive structural changes. 

Remodeling is indeed hard work. In the midst of budgets and timelines, you may be eager to finish the project and hang your hardhat up. But keep in mind that remodeling is a big change that allows for an in-depth look at what you would otherwise not have access to. It is important for a remodeling project to be used as an opportunity to ensure that all of the hard work you invest into the space will hold its integrity and value over time. The “extra” work of pre-treatment during remodeling can actually save you a significant amount of stress and money that untreated wood could otherwise cost you. 

We conduct thorough inspections in multiple areas for pre-treatment. We will inspect the exposed wood for any signs of existing infestation. If found, we will determine the extent of the colony and the severity of any damage. Natural Science Exterminating prioritizes natural spot treatments, considering tent fumigation as a last resort. In addition to inspections of the wood, the soil, foundation, and areas of wood-to-soil contact may be inspected if structurally accessible.

We work with your remodeling contractors to achieve maximum results with Bora-Care so that you can enjoy your transformation with peace of mind.

San Juan Capistrano Dry Rot Wood Replacement & Termite-Resistant Pressure Treatment

When it comes to repairing a damaged barn, the task can seem as daunting as trying to find a needle in a haystack!

But fear not! Calling a professional is an opportunity to save your property from collapse and prevent future damage. 

Natural Science Exterminating received a call in San Juan Capistrano for a 5000 sq ft barn that had dry rot on its beams. The beams needed to be cut and replaced as soon as possible, as the stability of the barn had been compromised, making it unsafe for use. Upon further inspection, we discovered that subterranean termites had infested underneath the property.

If your property has dry rot and pests, it can be both exterminated and restored through treatment by a licensed and experienced professional. We are proud to share how we successfully treated our client’s beautiful barn through a combination of termite extermination and wood replacement and pressure treatment. 

Do Termites Cause Dry Rot?

A common question is whether the wood has been damaged by termites or dry rot.

Dry rot is fungal decay in wood. Termites do not directly cause dry rot, however, they are attracted to the conditions of dry rot, and by their very nature, termites can create the conditions that allow dry rot to worsen. 

Termites consume cellulose, the plant fiber of wood. Seeking moisture, termites mostly feed on soft or decaying wood, while also maintaining their desired humidity level through digesting and nesting. Termites use their excretions (saliva and fecal matter) to build nests and mud tubes. Pre-existing moisture or moisture from the presence of termites can ultimately give rise to fungal growth. The fungi can penetrate wood more easily when it has already been weakened, leading to its decay.

Subterranean Termite Removal & Wood Pressure Treatment 

Tent fumigation or above ground spot treatments will not effectively remove subterranean termites, which infest the foundation and soil of the home. To exterminate subterranean termites, soil is injected with liquid insecticide, and the concrete or wood foundation is chemically treated through drilling. These treatments should only be performed by a licensed exterminator who is qualified to do so without causing contamination to various vents, ducts, and openings. 

Some properties in the United States are required to have pressure treated wood when the wood is close to or in contact with earth. Pressure treating wood involves pushing a preservative into the pores, creating a termite resistant chemical barrier. 

Combining Treatments For Dry Rot Termite Damage 

Is it possible to combine treatments that replace dry rotted wood, remove termites, and prevent termites?

Yes! Natural Science Exterminating specializes in performing pest control and prevention in conjunction with carpentry wood repair and replacement. Our combined skill set ensures that along with removing dry rot and repairing or replacing wood, we carefully inspect the property to identify all layers of possible damage and infestation. Speaking of layers, the carpentry process requires specialized expertise to work around any plumbing or wiring connections enclosed in the infested sites. If the presence of pests is detected, we are ready to eliminate every trace of infestation and prevent pests from invading again.

Natural Science Exterminating will remove infestations and treat damage altogether. During carpentry repair or replacement, we may discover and treat pests, which a typical carpenter will not be equipped for, as extermination calls for a licensed pest control professional. Occupants do not need to vacate the premises during the wood repair process. We do not paint the wood, however, we prime it to prepare for paint.

If left untreated, termite damage or dry rot can spread quickly, causing significant damage to your property. It is important to repair or replace damaged wood and remove the source of the damage as soon as possible to ensure safety.

Newport Beach Commercial Termite Extermination For Department Fish And Wildlife

California is the most biodiverse of the United States, making it home to the fish, wildlife, and plants that make the sunny state so beautiful and green. Fortunately, a team of dedicated experts at the Department of Fish and Wildlife manage and conserve the magnificent nature of California.

We’re proud to share the success story of performing commercial termite extermination for Newport Beach’s Department of Fish And Wildlife. 

Funnily enough, on one hand, our job was to exterminate a certain creature, and on the other, our client’s job has always been to preserve all other creatures and their habitat.

But the critters we were called to exterminate had to go. Termites are one of the most common and destructive pests, causing billions of dollars of property damage across the United States every year through cellulose consumption. Attracted to moisture and wood, termite colonies make their way into homes and buildings, of which structural integrity can be compromised from the weakening of interior structures. Damaged floors, ceilings, and walls are not only unsightly, but also a safety concern. 

Natural Science Exterminating was called in specifically for our expertise in safe and environmentally friendly commercial pest control management, aligning with the mission of the Department of Fish and Wildlife. Located in the Newport Back Bay wetland preserve, the Department is home to the personnel, equipment, and wildlife in rehabilitation. 

Tent fumigation was not a viable treatment option; a specific method of spot treatment was required to keep exotic ocean wildlife and osprey nests safe. 

Commercial Termite Removal

Pest control methods must be customized to account for a given property’s unique characteristics and form of infestation. Commercial pest treatments in particular must account for a variety of factors as commercial properties typically involve more people and larger square footage than residential properties, in addition to housing valuable assets such as specialized equipment or inventory. 

We are proud to be one of the most versatile experts in pest control management, treating both residential and commercial properties in California. We carefully inspect and assess each case to determine the best approach among a range of techniques, including both natural and chemical solutions as well as spot treatment and tent fumigation. While tent fumigation may be necessary in certain cases, it is often not practical nor safe for certain types of properties. 

Natural Science Exterminating has decades of experience in working with businesses and business owners to efficiently and safely eliminate pests, allowing little downtime to day-to-day operations. We understand that any infestation, whether mild or severe, can cause significant interruptions to your business, which affects your profitability. 

Stop Pests From Interrupting Your Business

Call a professional exterminator as soon as you suspect the possible presence of pests. The longer your facilities are affected, the longer you may need to remain out of service to protect the safety of your employees and customers. Furthermore, an untreated infestation allows pests to cause damage, which accumulates and translates into higher repair costs. 

Tent fumigation and spot treatment are different techniques that will suit different types of commercial properties. Call Natural Science Exterminating for a free termite inspection and assessment of the best solution for your property.

Santa Ana Mansion Termite Spot Treatment Preserves Valuable Art

Termites are one of the most common and destructive pests, causing billions of dollars of property damage across the United States every year. This article is for informational purposes only. 

Art has the power to showcase human ingenuity and grit. With materials including paint, paper, clay, and marble, artists have made history through their creations.

Pablo Picasso was a Spanish artist who co-founded the cubist movement, which greatly impacted his contemporaries, fueling the revolution of surrealist art. Picasso defied artistic norms, pushing and breaking convention through his variety of methods and materials in bringing his visions to life. The most valuable masterpieces in the world include the works of Picasso.

We’re proud to share the story of how our team at Natural Science Exterminating had the honor of successfully treating our client’s very own Spanish masterpiece: the beautiful, classic Spanish tile roof of their Santa Ana mansion.

Tent fumigation was not to be applied here, as that method could have potentially damaged the tiles. We got to work by spot treating with a 3 story extension ladder—on a hillside, no less. Some of the greatest acrobatic performances combine theater, costumes, pyrotechnics, dance, and music, showcasing human greatness. Not everyone can be an acrobatic, nor can anyone be an exterminator. Both skills require professional training and experience to be performed safely (do not attempt either at home!).

Removing Termites From High Value Homes

Pest control treatments are a labor of love based on science. When we treat a client’s residential or commercial property, we understand the responsibility bestowed upon us to remove the pests in a way that respects the value of the property. However, not all pest control companies take pride in their work as an artist would. The sad truth about the professional extermination industry is that some companies chase profit without regard for preserving the integrity of the home. Heavy handed exterminators may intentionally exaggerate their diagnosis of the infestation in order to charge a higher service fee for larger scale treatments like tent fumigation rather than localized spot treatments. 

The method of treatment for any given infestation must be custom tailored to the property’s uniqueness. Our customized pest control treatment saved our client money as well as the beauty of their home.

Is Tent Fumigation Necessary?

Tent fumigation may be necessary in certain cases, but not all. Natural Science Extermination has safely and successfully fumigated many properties for our clients. However, we consider tent fumigation as the last option, not the only option.

If an exterminator insists on tent fumigation, give Natural Science Exterminating a call first—we may be able to spot treat or use natural solutions instead. 

Tent fumigation removes pests through the controlled release of gaseous termiticide, typically when pests have infested an entire property. But certain properties are not structurally suitable for tent fumigation due to limitations or restrictions.

Tent fumigation and spot treatment are different techniques that are best suited for different types of  properties and infestations. Call Natural Science Exterminating for a free termite assessment of the best solution for you.

Rodent Removal, Decontamination, and Insulation

No stone should be left unturned when removing pests. 

To ensure a truly pest-free and pest-proof home, hire a professional who will treat your home beyond the point of removal, also repairing damage and preventing future infestations. 

We are proud to share the success of a treatment we completed for a client who called us after another exterminator did not fully get the job done, allowing water damage to occur from a rat nest that soaked an area of the ceiling. In addition to removal, we decontaminated the attic, replaced the insulation, and sealed off all possibilities of rodent re-entry.

The work of the other previous exterminator did not deliver an ultimate solution because simply killing rodents is not enough to prevent them from coming back. Rodent removal should be followed by decontamination and insulation replacement in order to restore the health and safety of your home. 

Water damage in homes or buildings are enticing to rodents who love dark and humid crawl spaces, especially in colder areas and months. The presence of moisture allows walls, floors, and ceilings to be more easily penetrable. 

Once they are inside, rodents have no respect for your home. Rodents almost always leave excrement in insulation and on surfaces, contaminating the air that circulates your home. They’ll claim the space they take up, emitting feces and urine to mark their territory. The odor from their droppings provides guidance for them to navigate back to the space using their sense of smell.. 

Rodent contamination is hazardous and dangerous. The Centers For Disease Control and Prevention say that “certain diseases can spread from rodents to people through direct contact with infected rodents (for example, breathing in contaminated air, touching contaminated materials and then touching eyes, nose, or mouth, being bitten or scratched by an infected rodent, or eating food contaminated from an infected rodent).” Leptospirosis and hantavirus are infectious diseases that can spread from their bacteria. Their bodily fluids (blood, oil, feces, saliva, and urine) contain bacteria which can develop into mold and mildew, which can aggravate existing allergies and respiratory issues.  

Therefore, rodents and their traces must be removed to prevent them from finding their way back by following their territorial markings. Rodent decontamination also ensures that you, your family, and occupants of the house or building do not come into contact or exposure to the bacteria and illnesses that rodents carry. 

The damage that rodents cause to attic insulation has a directly negative impact on the efficacy of the insulation itself, which causes you to suffer from a lower degree of warmth and higher energy costs.

After removing the rodents and the rodent nest, we removed the infected insulation and replaced it with brand new pest control insulation. We sealed off all entries and openings to ensure that no new rodents would enter.

Natural Science Exterminating is qualified and licensed to sell and install specialized pest control insulation, which offers industry leading energy efficiency, fire retardation, and sound proofing. We offer installation for the only pest control insulation product on the market today with the Energy Star® label. Customers who choose to add this insulation to their homes are eligible for up to a $500 tax credit.

Huntington Beach Commercial Termite Treatment Success Story

Some places on Earth are extra special. Those places need to be protected at all costs. 

Huntington Beach is home to some of the most beautiful places to visit in the country. We received a call from a classic car parts store and warehouse with a beautiful 30-foot wood ceiling and a not-so-beautiful infestation of termites.

We’re proud to share our success story of how we exterminated all traces of infestation while ensuring that their property was protected in every possible way.

Before they discovered us at Natural Science Exterminating, our client received quotes of hundreds of thousands of dollars from companies that insisted on tent fumigation. However, spot treatment was all that was necessary to achieve maximum results, costing less than one third of those grandiose quotes. Our careful and thorough inspection determined that tent fumigation wasn’t what they needed, and therefore not what they should have been quoted for. 

The method of termite removal that should be applied depends on several factors, including the severity of the infestation. Each property must be carefully inspected prior in order to ensure that the correct method is applied. 

Why is it that property owners often get quoted for more expensive treatments than the type they actually need?

The simple purpose of a termite treatment is to kill the entirety of the termite colony, including their eggs. Most exterminators will indeed accomplish this…but at what cost, physically, financially, and environmentally? The dangerous truth about the pest control industry is that some companies prioritize profit over people. This may involve overblown quotes or misleading consultations by pest control professionals who deliberately and falsely exaggerate the extent of the issue in order to invoice you for the most expensive and hefty (yet unnecessary) service.

When considered holistically, exterminators should strive for the most effective degree of termite removal while prioritizing the health and safety of humans, pets, and plants, as well as the integrity of the property.

If you’ve seen our work and read our testimonials, you know that we go the distance in customer service and service quality, counting tent fumigation as our last resort. Tent fumigation is considered the most “absolute” method of removing termites, in that it can reach every nook and cranny through the controlled release of gaseous termiticide. However, tent fumigation can be excessive and unnecessary for localized infestations .

The best part about this success story is that our spot treatment left our client’s Huntington Beach property…spotless! We rented 3 different lifts and we covered all equipment, fenders, and product inventory. In addition to removing existing termites and their offspring through the spot treatment method, we then applied BoraCare treatment to prevent future termite invasions throughout the entire property.

All of our work was entirely completed within a single day, one in which the warehouse was not in operation. 

Tent fumigation and spot treatment should be applied to different types of infestations, which is why it takes an expert to identify the best solution. Call Natural Science Exterminating and one of our trained inspectors can give you a free assessment of all the possible options. We only use termite tenting as a last resort.
