drywood termite treatments san diego orange county

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.

Subterranean Termites

Every year, Americans spend $4.5 billion dollars controlling and repairing damage left by subterranean termites. Subterranean termites threaten the foundation of a structure, by undermining the soil and buried wood. 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.

Termite Treatment Options

Depending on the severity of your termite infestation, our professional technicians may recommend a fumigation or a local treatment. All of our services are guaranteed to keep your home termite-free.


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. After our technicians have performed a full inspection of your home, we may recommend fumigation to eradicate your termite problem.

Spot Treatment

Local treatment is a great solution for eliminating isolated infestations of termites. Home and business owners who have had fumigations or heat treatments within the past five years may also qualify for local treatment. Termite spot treatments can also be used in commercial buildings and apartment complexes, where moving multiple residents may not be feasible.

Termite Inspection Testimonials

" 5 star termite inspection service review

Very professional and quick response. After I got issue with my previous pest control company, I picked Griffin and I was right. They gave me detailed inspection after walking around the place, and provide me lots of advices to keep my are free of insects and rodents. Their price quote is also unbeatable so of course I signed contract with them right away. Although I just got the schedules twice in the last 2 months but I can tell they're very responsible. So lucky I found them.

I called Griffin Pest Management yesterday because of my issue with mice. The representative on the phone was friendly and courteous, and answered my questions about what kind of pest control Griffin offers. I told her I needed to get someone over here ASAP, and she booked an inspection for me this morning. The inspector, Gary, arrived on time, even a little bit early, after calling me first to let me know. I appreciated the fact that he gave me his name at that time so I knew exactly who was coming . Gary was very friendly and professional throughout his inspection and went out of his way to explain the procedure the company uses for rodent eradication. He showed me possible entry points where mice might be getting in and educated me on their habits. He did a great job of answering my questions and did not pressure me into making a decision about using Griffin. I told him I needed to think about what I'm going to do, and actually, I had an appointment with another pest control company scheduled for tomorrow, but I cancelled it due to my satisfaction with Gary's service. I will use Griffin for any of my pest control needs in the near future.

I had five quotes to treat my termite problem. Brian came out and was no nonsense didn't try to sell me on anything just did his inspection in a professional manner and explain to couple things to me. I got the quote shortly thereafter and it was the most reasonable out of all the five. I also needed wood work done on the house due to the termite damage. Several of the companies I got quotes from said they would just cut out portions and replace pieces of wood. This company replaced the entire board for each area that needed it, no cutting and pasting! They did a great job, painted it well and it looks professional. When the fumigation guys came, I thought I had bagged and removed everything in my house ( believe me when you start to do it you realize it's a bigger job and you have more stuff than you think). Thank goodness they did a double check of the kitchen cabinets after I was gone. When I got home, I saw three bags on the kitchen counter that I did not leave there. I realized I had missed an entire cabinet of my spices and alcohol. They did it all for me and left it on the counter and didn't even say a word. Overall, I am very pleased with Brian and Griffin Pest Management. Brian always responded immediately to my concerns and was nothing less than professional. I am very critical of a company based on their customer service and this company far exceeded my standards.I would highly recommend this company to everyone.

Worked with Kevin twice now for pre-purchase home termite inspections. Both times he was professional and courteous. The first quote was significantly less than their competition. We hope to never need their services, but will not hesitate to use them if we do.

So this young man comes out to conduct a comprehensive termite inspection on our home. I had asked for an earlier time because I had to get to work and couldn't wait the typical 7:00-noon window. He tells me he'll be there right at 9:00. And he actually showed up five minutes early. Tell me how often that happens - never! Everything after that was exactly the same - perfect. Kevin was professional, thorough, and so damn friendly through the entire inspection. You won't go wrong if you hire this company. They deserve their five stars.

We have been using Griffin Pest Management for our escrows, and always use Brian Chambers. Brian gets it done, is great with communication, and quickly resolves any issues that arise. His office is always pleasant to deal with as well, and get us reports for escrow usually same day, if not the day after the inspection. Thank you for all that you do!!!!!

I had put off handling our subterranean termites long enough. A property management firm recommended I call Griffin Pest Management. During the inspection, Mike explained the process, greatly reliving my anxiety. The technician was prompt, professional and cleaned up after he was done. I would not have procrastinated so long if I know it would be this painless! I would not hesitate to use Griffin Pest Management in the future.
