Termite Local Treatment In Los Angeles
Also serving Orange county, San Fernando Valley, Riverside & San Bernardino Counties
Depending on accessibility, localized or "spot" treatments are perfect for exterminating isolated infestations of termites. After a complete inspection of your home is completed, our termite inspector will recommend the best type of treatment suited to the structure. We offer both full structure tent fumigation as a primary recommendation or secondary alternative treatments should termites be directly accessible.
Secondary Treatment Options For Termites
There are several alternative methods of localized termite spot treatments, transferable termiticides, residual termiticides, borate treatments, foaming penetrants, heat treatments, microwaves and electricity. In certain situations, such as controlling Subterranean termites, drilling and treating or rod and trench applications of repellent termiticide barriers are the only choice for continuing control. Depending on the application, there are two types of termiticides used for control, repellent and non-repellent termiticides. Repellent termiticides form a repellent barrier which prevents termites from entering the structure. Non repellent termiticides are non detectable to termites and rely on termite activity to eliminate infestations.
There are several secondary treatment options for Drywood termites. Non-repellent, transferable termiticides allow termites to penetrate treated areas where they contact the active termiticide. The termiticide is then carried on the termite’s body into the colony, spreading to other termites like a virus. Borate treatments and foaming penetrants soak into the wood members and leave behind residual termiticides, killing the termites. If you are interested in tent-less termite control, call Pest Innovations, our termite inspection specialists will be more than happy to explain secondary treatments for your structure.
Non Repellent Local Treatments
Non-repellent termiticides stop termite feeding within hours of exposure. The first termites to come into contact with the treatment are exposed through contact and ingestion and carry it to the colony on their bodies to affect other unexposed termites. Delayed toxicity means exposed termites that have stopped feeding can still walk, groom and aggregate in groups for an extended period of time, allowing treatment to further spread among colony members. Non-repellent termiticies controls termites in less than three months and provides long-lasting residual structural protection.
George and his team are AMAZING! His staff is prompt, polite, and always helpful. I have worked with them for over a year now on multiple projects. Everything from monthly pest control treatments, to bedbug treatments, termite work, rodent control; they do it all. They are quick to respond and always priced better than their competitors.

Great service from a team that is amazing! Fair rates, detailed services but most of friendly. I had a termite problem in my livingroom, George explained to me that we can have the affected area treated without having to tent the whole house and at a very reasonable price. The tech came over and treated the area locally, neatly and quickly. I am very satisfied with their services and will continue refering them to my friends. Thanks again George.

Needed a trustworthy company to educate me on the best non toxic option for getting rid of the termites inside my garage. So glad I found Pest Innovations. George took a lot of time answering my questions on the phone and helping me decide how to proceed. I ended up deciding on heat treatment. Armando came here and did the inspection and explained what would happen on the day the work was done. The guys came today (on time) and did the job. I was really stressing about having this work done, but they had a great attitude and made the entire experience less stressful for me.They were very conscientious about removing things from my garage and insulating things that could not be removed (such as my sprinklers timer for my garden), so nothing would be damaged by the heat, and they returned everything to its rightful place in the garage before they left.Great job guys! Thank you.

Signs Of Termite Activity
Most termite species live underground. They seek moisture and position themselves near or underneath the foundation of your home. Common signs of an infestation include:
Kick Out Holes - As termites tunnel through wood, they use kick out holes to discard fecal pellets and frass.
Pellets - Termites remove waste as they tunnel, creating small mounds of fecal pellets underneath kick out holes.
Weakened Wood - Long, thin cracks and sagging can mean wood has been hollowed out by termites.
Mud Tubes - These pencil-width paths lead from the nest to your home. Check the surrounding land, outer foundation wall, any crawl spaces and your basement.
Swarms - Reproductive termites will swarm primarily between spring and early summer depending on location. Check for this type of termite and the wings they shed. Shed wings can often be found near windowsills, as winged termites are attracted to light.
Conducive Conditions - Termites are attracted to certain conditions that help assist their development. Look for wood in direct contact with soil, and high moisture in and around your home. Correct these conditions to prevent further termite entry into your home.
