Protecting Your Orange & Los Angeles County Homes From Termites

Termites are one of those pests in Orange & Los Angeles Counties that can get into your house unnoticed and cause severe damage once inside. They live underground or within the wooden structures of your home, which means you don’t have many opportunities to see them out in the open. Once they get inside, they’ll eat away at the wood in your house and can cause serious structural damage if left to their own devices. If you have reason to believe termites have gotten into your home or you want to make sure they haven’t, contact Admiral Pest Control.

Our Termite Control Offerings

Free Inspection

Because termites spend most of their time out of sight, it can be difficult to identify an infestation. At Admiral Pest Control, our pest control technicians know where to look and what to look for when trying to identify a termite infestation. We’ll inspect all areas of wood in your house, probing for soft wood, damaged areas, the termites themselves, droppings, and more. We’ll also look for mud tubes.

Our inspection is vital because it allows us to determine whether or not you have an active termite infestation, what kind of termites are in your house, and where the damage is. Once we have this information, we can recommend the method of treatment that will best serve your needs and eliminate your termite problems.

Localized Treatments

Your treatment depends on the size and location of the infestation, as well as the type of termite we need to treat. For smaller, more localized infestations, we perform spot treatments. These treatments can include the use of BoraCare or Termidor®.

Our BoraCare treatments involve treating unpainted wood to make it uninviting to termites. This product is an environmentally-friendly treatment option.

Our Termidor® treatment involves drilling into specific are as and applying the product into the holes, then filling the holes back up. We also treat the soil around your house in order to target termites as they move around outside of your home.

Our localized treatments typically include a one-year warranty. Please contact us for specific information.

For large or widespread infestations of drywood termites, we sometimes recommend a fumigation treatment. This whole house treatment involves tenting your home and using Vikane gas to eliminate every termite inside.

Our fumigation treatments come with a two-year warranty that is renewable.
