Our offices will be closed due to Memorial Day until Tuesday May 30. Meanwhile, we will update the inspection schedule, and you can schedule your free termite inspections online. Drywood termites are swarming now. If you see flying termites, spray them with Windex or even water and feel free to clean up remains. There is nothing else needed for removing swarming termites. However, it would be great if you keep a sample of them for the inspector to look at. As a rule, swarming drywood termites are a sign of drywood termite infestation on the structure. The structure will need a thorough inspection to find out areas and points of infestations as well as damage and possible damage, if any. Also, there might be subterranean termite infestation, fungus damage, plumbing leaks, and many other findings (about 42 in our list). Since this is the busiest time of the year, we are booked many days in advance though employ many inspectors.

Prime Termite offers the best warranty available in our industry. All complete drywood and subterranean termite treatment warranties include

  • Unlimited re-treatments on any area of a structure, and this also includes free fumigations, re-foaming the entire building or conducting a complete subterranean termite work all over again
  • Promising by our side not to back off from the warranty for as long as the customer wishes, provided that they pay their annual renewal fee
  • Having fixed low annual renewal fee and not increasing it sharply after three years when it would be the time to probably do another complete termite work
  • No-fee transfer of the warranty to new owners as well as using it for house sale or refinance transactions

Gone are the days when pest and termite control operators had to sacrifice performance and effectiveness in exchange for as less as possible adverse effect to workers, homeowner and environment. By  implementing Altriset subterranean termite highly effective but also virtually harmless to humans and environment extermination method with natural borates we have one of the best methods available. In case of extensive infestation and damage by subterranean termites, especially where there are suspected possible hidden damages in inaccessible areas generous amount of Altriset combined with proper techniques of treatment should ensure proper control. If applied properly and directed to entire structure this method of subterranean termite control will also prevent from future infestations around 10-15 years. In addition, if extensive foaming will be done by either Bora-Care or Timbor-Professional, then preventative effect on applied areas will be much more. Just the fact that after 10-12 years of service we do not have many call backs from this treatments proves this point.

After many years of trial and error, Prime Termite found treatments which work best against subterranean termites. Termidor-Borate Combo subterranean termite treatment entails combining preventative capabilities of borates – Timbor Professiona and BoraCare with extermination and residual effect of Termidor. By this methid virtually two subterranean termite treatments get combined, and as practice shows it gives an outstanding result. Also, this type of treatment is mostly green since instead of trenching and drilling and treating entire foundation with Termidor and putting sometimes more than 100 Gallons of that material under the soil, instead borates are applied directly into the wood along with partial perimeter and localized targeted treatment.

As one of the most effective treatments against subterranean termites Termidor Perimeter Plus entails applying the mentioned high-effective termiticide against subterranean termites strictly according to very specific guidelines of the manufacturer – BASF in addition to also following the label instructions. After application the record has to be made on manufacturer’s database which will register the structure for further reference and quality control. BASF offers Prime Termite 10-year warranty for these treatments.

Fumigation using only Vikane, not a generic alternative, and fumigators being certified by Dow AgroSciences which is quite rare in Los Angeles area.

Fumigation is one of the most common drywood termite treatments, and if it is done properly, it can ensure complete elimination. It should be noted though that fumgiation has no preventative effect, meaning it cannot prevent from future infestations. Fumigations are done by using the best fumigant available – Vikane. Simultaneously, we acquaint homeowners with the safety aspects of termiticide usage and advise them of further aeration or prolonged absence if needed. Even though informally we do not recommend fumigation in case there are elderly, youngsters, and people with health issues in the household, it is nevertheless a common method during home buying and selling transactions. Follow this link where the homeowner complains about health-related issues right after the fumigation. However, we also offer complete green and even no-chemical alternative of fumigation.

Prime Termite provides same warrantes against drywood and subterranean termites by using green treatments as in case of traditional treatments. Even more, if only fumigation is done our warranty terms are more strict than in other cases since many houses, especially those on coastal areas need to be re-fumigated every couple of years as opposed to if we do other type of treatments 

Complete Heat or Thermigation is similar to fumigation when all wooden parts of a structure are treated by reaching all drywood termites. During fumigation this is achieved by introducing sulfur fluoride, but by using complete heat it is accomplished by increasing the temperature to a level at which dry wood termites cannot survive. In both cases, the structure is sealed to block fumigant or excessive heat escaping through a tent or other alternative ways. Complete Heat or Thermigation is the only alternative to fumigation capable of eliminating all drywood termites. In addition, it has one great advantage – it is a completely green treatment that does not involve any chemicals, even organic and natural ones.
