Fumigating Termites In Southern California Since 1994

Termite Fumigation in LA, Orange Co. & San Diego


Vikane Fumigating Termites

Fumigation is the most common method of termite extermination. In situations where termites are inaccessible to secondary methods, tenting your home or office is a guaranteed way to eliminate termites, once and for all. After our technicians have performed a full inspection of your home, we may recommend fumigation to eradicate your termite problem.

Why Does Griffin Use Fumigation?

Each year, about 100,000 fumigations are conducted each year in California. Costs for termite control and repair of damage from drywood termites in California exceeds $300 million annually and are projected to increase! Scientists have shown that fumigation is a reliable and complete method for elimination of infestations of drywood termites and other pests such as wood-destroying beetles and bed bugs. Products like Vikane are preferred for fumigation in southern California because they leave no residue behind after the tenting process has ended.

How Does Fumigation Work?

Fumigation begins after the home or structure is fully sealed and tented. Vikane gas fumigant is then pumped into the tented structure for a period of about 24-48 hours. Vikane is the best fumigant to eliminate termites because of its ability to penetrate all wood in the structure. Once the fumigation is complete, technicians will remove the tent and allow fresh air to flow through the structure. The technicians will inspect the building again to ensure it is safe for the occupants to return and then you will be allowed to re-enter.

Warranty

Griffin Pest Management guarantees all fumigations for a 3 year period. If you notice drywood termites returning, we will come back and use localized spot treatment to prevent them from proliferating.

Drywood Termites

These social insects infest dry wood and do not require contact with the soil like Subterranean termites. Each year, drywood termites cause millions in damages throughout the southwest. If left untreated for a long period of time, they can compromise a building or structure’s safety. Preventing a drywood infestation can be very difficult. Since these termites usually begin their colonies in the wood by flying to the structure, you will have a very tough time keeping them from arriving. Eliminating Drywood Termites really is a job best left to licensed professional pest control companies. Griffin Pest Management offers a variety of drywood termite treatments that include localized spot treatment, fumigation and heat. Griffin also offers wood repairs and restoration to infested areas.

If left untreated, these termites can cause thousands in damage and almost always require extensive repairs to be made to the structure, concrete slab or foundation. Griffin Pest Management offers a variety of treatment methods for subterranean termites. Our technician will start with a thorough inspection of the property to assess the scope of the infestation. Once determined, the technician will recommend a treatment plan that will best fit your needs and budget. Griffin offers escrow inspections for real estate agents as well. With our Pro-Shield and Pro-Shield Plus programs, Griffin Pest Management will come back once a year for localized spot treatments to prevent termites from returning.

" 5 star pest control service review

Brian Chambers is the only Wood Pest Professional I use. I have used different wood pest companies past. Anybody can put up a tent and fume a house, but when it comes to reliability, customer service, and relentless follow up to make sure that the customer is 100% satisfied Brian Chambers is second to none. In a recent transaction, in which I represented the buyer, the listing agent gave me a "clear" from another termite company... I called Brian just to make sure and he found two paces in the home that were missed by the other company. I work with Brian in every transaction and I have recommended him to my family when they need termite work done. Thanks Brian!

My home was long over-due for termite fumigation. Griffin Pest Management was one of 5 companies that I contacted for bids. There were others that I liked as well but either the price was higher or the wood work wasn't done by the same company. Andy made it happen! His crew came out and marked all of the wood areas that needed repair or replacement. In the bid, each of these areas was marked and clearly described for repair or replacement in an outline of my home. Andy gave me a date for the fumigation and because Griffin also did the wood, I knew that it would be done before the fumigation. The fumigation process isn't something you want to go through often, but gives you a chance to clean out cupboards, refrigerator and freezers as well as bathroom meds, etc. The tent and fumigation is done by another company contracted by Griffin. We left the house and returned after 2 nights; by early Friday morning the tent was gone and we were able to enter and unpack the bags. There was no smell or film. Andy earns a star for customer service.....a courteous, friendly, prompt and informative young man. He always answered my calls, emails, or texts the same day. For a home improvement process that we attest, he made it a smooth process.
