Are Termites Threatening Your San Diego Home?
Purchasing a home is an enormous investment in yourself, your family, and your future. It is then reasonable that you want to protect your investment from the many factors that threaten it. Unfortunately, termites are among the most significant threats you can face in any San Diego home. When these destructive, wood-eating pests make their way into your house, they will do everything in their power to transform your home into their personal feeding ground as they consume the wooden structures within.

Our San Diego, CA Termite Control Services
The first step toward ridding your home of termite activity is to perform a thorough inspection to determine where termite activity is happening. We start each service by seeking potential hotspots and signs of termites in your house. Some of the most common indicators of a termite infestation include the following signs:
- Blistering, drooping paint, and drywall
- Buckling floorboards or sagging ceilings
- Discarded wings from termite swarmers
- Faint scratching sounds
- Frass (wood shavings)
- Mud tubes along the foundation
- Pinpoint-sized holes in the walls
Not all termite infestations are the same. To best combat these pests, we offer unique treatment options for each variety of termites you are likely to discover in your home. Our treatment options include:
- Bait stations placed in strategic areas around your home that allow for consistent monitoring and prevention.
- Eco-friendly borate or foam treatments injected directly into the structural wood.
- Pre-construction services to prevent termites in newly built homes.
- Termite damage repair to help restore your home to livable conditions.
- “Trench & Treat” applications to the soil around the foundation that eliminate active infestations and prevent new ones from occurring.
- WDO inspections and reports for lenders.
Depending on the scale of your infestation, we may recommend either localized treatment or a whole-house fumigation service. In addition, you may also qualify for our termite-free guarantee based on the type of treatment performed; call today to learn more.
What Are Termite Swarmers?
Because termites are quiet pests that prefer to work silently within your home, it’s unlikely you have directly encountered one of these pests. If you have, it is likely a winged reproductive termite, commonly known as a termite swarmer.
Here are some of the traits to look for when identifying swarming termites:
- ⅜ to ⅝ of an inch long
- Abdomen that joins at the thorax
- Long transparent wings
- Reddish-brown head and thorax
Termite damage can sometimes be confused with damage caused by other wood-destroying insects and organisms. Are you questioning if what you see in your home are actually termites? Reach out to our experts today for an immediate inspection.
