Termite Treatment in Los Angeles, CA
At Tanler Termite, we offer several treatment options to protect your property from termites depending on your specific situation and preferences. For Drywood Termites we have four different treatment options.
Standard Drywood Termite Treatment
Our standard treatment involves injecting infested wood with Termidor SC and spraying Nisus Bora-Care on all exposed wood in the attic. Termidor SC is a slow-acting termiticide that takes advantage of termites’ social nature to wipe out the entire colony. Nisus Bora-Care is borate-salt that protects the wood and kills any termites that attempt to eat the treated wood.
GREEN Drywood and Subterranean Termite Treatment
Our green Drywood and Subterranean Termite treatment is similar to our standard treatment except that we replace Termidor SC with Altriset. Both Altriset and Bora-Care are green products that are highly effective at eradicating termites and also provide excellent environmental profiles.
Bora-Care termite prevention with Pretreatments
The active ingredient in Bora-Care is a borate salt that works by taking advantage of the biology of termites, ants and other insects. It has the longest lasting residual on the pesticide market. Once a termite ingests borate salt it becomes unable to extract nutrition from its food and starves to death. If applied to the structure and foundation during construction, Bora-Care is highly effective at protecting the structure from both Drywood Termites and Subterranean Termites. Bora-Care is an excellent green product that is not harmful to the environment. The Bora-Care Pretreatment comes with a 3-year warranty if applied to a open framed structure. Bora-Care also prevents/fights against fungi, dry-rot, carpenter ants, and wood beetles
Fumigation is highly effective at eradicating Drywood Termites in a structure. It is a three-day process that requires temporarily moving out of the home while the home is tented and fumigated. We provide “fume bags” for consumable items that need to be sealed from the gas and we show you exactly what must be bagged and how to properly seal the bags.
We take every effort to minimize any damage caused by the tenting process. However, it’s important to know that tent fumigation may kill plants that are located close to the structure and must be covered by the tent. Additionally, tile roofs can experience damage from the weight of the tent and the fumigation crews walking on the roof. If you have a satellite dish, it may need to be temporarily taken down and re-installed by your dish provider.
Subterranean Termite Treatment
Treating your home for Subterranean Termites involves digging trenches around the home and boring holes in concrete pads and walkways to saturate the soil around the foundation of the home with Termidor H.E. or Altriset with long lasting residuals!
The treatment also involves saturating the soil in any subareas of the structure with Termidor H.E. and spraying the exposed wood in the attic with Bora Care. Termidor H.E. is a High efficiency termiticide that requires less water, helps improve the dispersal of the active ingredient, and creates and enhanced protection zone with a long lasting residual.
Termite Treatment Warranties
Our standard warranty for termite treatments is a 2 year Full Property warranty with Full localized treatments or fumigation. The warranty includes free yearly re-inspections of the property and free retreats if needed.
We also offer an extended warranty through our renewal program. The extended warranty is based on the square footage of the structure and typically costs between $250-$450 per year depending on the size of the home.
If the homeowner requests spot treatment of a localized termite infestation, we provide a 6-month warranty that only covers the areas that were treated.
Termite and Fungus Damage Repairs
Termites create hollow pockets in wood and fungus can make the wood soft and weak. If the termite inspection discovers damage caused by wood destroying organisms, we can provide you with an estimate to repair the damage. We have repair crews with expensive experience in this type of damage repair.
