Subterranean termites tunnel through the ground and threaten your property from the foundation, while drywood termites swarm exposed timber and destroy from the exterior. We'll help you protect your investment with a variety of termite treatments based on your needs and budget.

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.

Termites In Southern California

drywood termite treatments

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 termite treatments

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 Extermination Testimonials

" 5 star termite extermination service review

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.

The service technician from Griffin was both friendly and knowledgeable and the office staff were able to work with my rather rushed need for scheduling. I was so pleased with their work when they came and tented my house for termites that, just recently when the weather brought ants out across my whole neighborhood, I called them back for any treatment and have recommended them to several friends and neighbors.

Brian is truly the most professional termite inspector I have ever met. This company has integrity, tremendous work ethic and passion for what they do. They always go above and beyond what is expected. Also, best prices in the business. I would never use anyone else!

These guys did a great job tenting our house for termites. Our house is on the water in Huntington Harbor with a zero lot line and we had 3 other termite companies tell us our house couldn't be tented because of this. Griffin got it done with no problems at a fair price. Mike even showed up the day before the tenting with his son to help me move some large potted plants off the deck - this goes above and beyond in my book. I would highly recommend them.

They are great in service and quality and price ! I shopped around to 3 different companies for termite extermination and I liked how the sales guy Brian was flexible on timing & even gave me options regarding our guest house and additional pest spraying. The tent service is the option that works best. Don't buy into the fads. Also Salvador was great in assisting in making sure we properly sealed up all our food. We weren't moving or selling our home just time for fumigation and it worked out great.
