We’ve never had an exceptional termite experience, but the best company we’ve worked with was Western Exterminator. They came in quite a bit below other quotes, and did the same work the other companies were going to do (if not more).
Good luck!January 19, 2014 at 9:13 AM #769861DataAgentParticipant
We chose the full tent treatment last summer. Hungry Termite did a great job: http://www.hungrytermite.com/
The owner’s name is Victor Albright. He’s a great guy. Very easy to work with. Check his Yelp reviews.
Get a couple of estimates before you decide. Check references too.July 23, 2014 at 8:30 PM #777016svelteParticipant
My turn in the barrel apparently.
Homeowner in SD County for well over 20 years and think I have my first termites – drywood termites on the patio.
I will call the companies recommended in this post, but if others have recommendations please speak up.
It looks pretty localized so I’m hoping no tenting is involved.July 23, 2014 at 11:17 PM #777017njtosdParticipant
We have had good luck with La Jolla Termite and Pest Control . . http://www.lajollatermite.comJuly 24, 2014 at 11:10 AM #777026HatfieldParticipant
I’ve used D&S a couple times in the past and was happy with the results. We tented again about 3 months ago and got similar bids from D&S and Corky’s. Truly Nolan was almost twice as much. We went with D&S again.
If you have a tile roof, pay close attention to the terms of tile roof guarantee.
I’m personally not a fan of the topical treatments, because they can only treat wood where it’s accessible. It seems very likely to me that if you have termites where you can see them, you probably also have them where you can’t.
The laws governing the fumigation process have gotten more strict, and the crew chief from the team that tented our house suspects that in a couple more years it may not be possible to fumigate in California anymore.
