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.
