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.

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.

" 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.
