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.
