Subterranean termites started swarming in Los Angeles and other cities in SoCal. When you see swarming or flying termites there is no need to panic. They are not vector of diseases but almost for certain damage the property. You can spray them with water or any other cleaning material and clean them after they fall down. It will be beneficial to keep a sample in a plastic or other container for our inspector to identify the termites. Meanwhile, you can call us or book online your free inspection after which we will assess the situation and offer remedies. Most of the time lot more issues are found other than subterranean termite infestations. So it will be an excuse to do a good wood destroying organisms inspection and rectify issues .

Most Homes And Other Structures Qualify For A Complete Wood Destroying Organisms (termite) Inspection


During these type of inspections our inspectors recommend more than one option — usually three. Fumigation will be recommended as one of the options. If fumigation will be chosen as a treatment for drywood termite control rest is ensured that Prime Termite will coordinate all procedures for smooth progress of the process. We have extensive experience of doing fumigations on large structures and have always provided excellent quality of treatment and service.

During the process it is important that everything will be planned in advance. We do not do rush fumigation, and this statement is more relevant to multi unit and/or commercial fumigations. It is important to note that very few cases when fatalities happened during fumigation where those in multi-units. It is much easier to coordinate everything when there is only one family at a residence as opposed to 100 occupants in a huge building.

It is a requirement from Prime Termite not to leave any feed, medicine, vitamins as well as anything that usually is recommended to bag during fumigation. We do not believe that leaving anything inside the tent where highly toxic gas will be introduced which will then be placed inside mouths of people makes any sense at all. Food should be consumed prior to fumigation and all other items taken out even though it is perfectly legal to bag them.

Again, these fumigations are scheduled at least 20 days in advance, and most cases 3 or more months in advance, so the residents and home owner have more than enough time to get ready for them properly.

In addition we have at least three meetings prior to management companies and residents prior to multi unit fumigations.

Depending on location, intensity of infestation and severity of termite damage, Borate Foaming directed to entire structure may be recommended by one of our inspectors along with other options for termite control. Especially for multi unit residences this type of treatment is more convenient than fumigation and can be done on stages . Not only there will be no need to vacate the premises, but also instead of every residence being treated at the same time, only tenants of couple of units being treated will be bothered at time.

In addition, in case there is a food establishment or a business located in commercial building where  maintaining uninterrupted day to day operations is mandatory, these types of treatments can be done after hours or over the weekend.

For multi unit and commercial properties many times limited drywood termite treatments are chosen. These termite treatments include but are not limited to

  • Treating one one or more units on a multi unit structure.
  • In addition to treating one or more units, also conducting partial foaming on attic, subarea as well as other areas
  • Conducting subterranean termite treatment only for the unit which ordered inspection
  • Treating areas where HOA would not cover and only the person who ordered inspection was responsible

Since these type of treatments already are credited towards to future work, later if HOA or commercial property other management/owner(s) decide to do more work or finish rest of the structure, they do not have to do the entire thing again, but what is left.
