Full Structure Fumigation

Fumigation for drywood termites involves tenting and sealing an entire structure and introducing Vikane gas to kill the pests. This method is effective for eliminating all stages of termites.


Vikane is a brand name for sulfuryl fluoride, a colorless, odorless gas used as a fumigant to control pests such as termites, bedbugs, and other insects in structures. The gas works by disrupting the insects' nervous system, ultimately killing them.

Fumigation Process

  1. Inspection: A pest control professional will inspect the structure to determine the extent of the infestation and to ensure that fumigation is necessary.

  2. Preparation: The occupants must remove all food, plants, and pets from the structure and the area must be sealed off completely.

  3. Gas introduction: The fumigant gas is introduced into the structure through special vents.

  4. Ventilation: After a specified amount of time, the gas is vented out of the structure to allow it to dissipate to safe levels.

  5. Take down: On the last day of the fumigation process after ventilating the home, the tent is taken down and structure is properly tested to ensure reentry is 100% safe. 

  6. Re-entry: After the required ventilation period and permission, the occupants can re-enter the structure.

  7. Follow-up: A follow-up inspection is conducted to confirm that the infestation has been eliminated and to ensure that there are no residual levels of the fumigant.

Full Structure Soil Treatment

Soil treatment is a common method used to control subterranean termites. The process involves applying a termiticide to the soil around the foundation of a structure, creating a barrier that prevents termites from accessing the structure and infesting it. If the structures has crawl space access, the soil also near the foundation and surrounding posts that hold up the sub floor are also treated with termiticide.

The soil treatment process typically involves digging a trench around the foundation of the structure, and then applying the termiticide directly to the soil. For cement areas, a nickel sized hole is drilled every 12-15” and each hole is injected with termtiticide. The termiticide is formulated to be long-lasting, and provides protection against termites for several years. The specific process and products used for soil treatment will depend on the type of structure, the location, and the severity of the termite infestation.

Soil Treatment Process

  1. Inspection: The first step is to inspect the property and determine the extent and location of the termite infestation. The inspector should look for evidence of termite activity, such as mud tubes, damaged wood, and swarmers (winged termites).

  2. Preparation: The area to be treated must be prepared, including removing any objects that may be in the way and covering any plants or garden beds with plastic to protect them from the treatment.

  3. Soil excavation / cement drilling: A trench is dug around the perimeter of the foundation to expose the soil. The trench should be at least 6 inches wide and 6 inches deep. Any areas with cement are drilled a nickel sized hole about 12-15" apart. 

  4. Termiticide application: A liquid termiticide is applied to the soil in the trench (including soil in the crawl space of property (if any) as well as injected into the drill holes surrounding the perimeter of the structure.. The termiticide should be evenly distributed and the soil should be thoroughly soaked.

  5. Backfilling: The trench is then backfilled with the treated soil, making sure not to disturb the termiticide application and any cement portions drilled will be patched with new cement..

  6. Monitoring: The treated area should be monitored regularly to ensure that the treatment was effective and that there are no signs of termite activity. Our full structure soil treatements are covered with a 3 year warranty. 

Localized Treatment

Localized treatment is a method used to control drywood termites. The process involves treating only the affected areas of the structure, rather than treating the entire structure. This approach is often used when the infestation is limited to a specific area, such as a single room or section of a building.


Localized treatment typically involves injecting a termiticide into the affected wood, either through small holes drilled into the wood or through cracks and crevices. The termiticide is then distributed throughout the infested area, killing the termites and preventing them from causing further damage.

Localized Treatment Process

  1. Inspection: A professional inspector will assess the extent of the termite infestation and determine the type of treatment needed.

  2. Preparation: All accessible wood should be removed, and the area should be cleaned to remove any debris that could interfere with the treatment.

  3. Treatment: The treatment will be applied to the infested area and the surrounding soil to eliminate the termites. This can be done using termiticides, bait systems, or a combination of both.

  4. Monitoring: The treated area will be monitored regularly to ensure the effectiveness of the treatment and to detect any new infestations.

  5. Prevention: Preventative measures, such as regular inspections, proper ventilation, and reducing wood-to-soil contact, can help prevent future termite infestations.

Wood Repairs

Repair work is very important in maintaining the structure of your property. At times home owners fumigate the home thinking it will take care of everything, but the fact is any damage present on the property will still be there until it is replaced, patched or reinforced. Common areas needed for repairs on exterior properties are: Rafter tails, fascia, barge rafters, roof sheathing, siding, etc.

We have different approaches when it comes to repair work depending on the severity and location of repair. We can do a full repair and replace of wood members or in more difficult situations, re-support wooden members.  

Wood Repairs Process
  1. Inspection: A professional inspector will assess the extent of the damage and determine the type of repair needed.

  2. Preparation: All damaged and infested wood must be removed and the area must be cleaned to remove any traces of termites or fungus.

  3. Repair: The damaged area is then repaired or reinforced, typically using pressure treated wood to prevent future infestations. If the damage is extensive, a structural engineer / contractor may need to be consulted to ensure the safety and stability of the structure. 

  4. Treatment: A pest control professional will then treat the area to ensure all termites or fungus are eliminated and to prevent future infestations.

  5. Prevention: Preventative measures, such as regular inspections and proper ventilation, can help prevent future termite or fungus damage.

Preventative Treatment 

1. Chemical barriers: Soil treatments with liquid insecticides to create a barrier to prevent termites from entering a building.
2. Physical barriers: Installing metal sheeting to prevent termites from accessing a building.

3. Baiting systems: Installing bait stations that contain wood or cellulose material and a slow-acting insecticide that termites feed on and then spread to the rest of their colony.
4. +Professional inspections and treatments: Regular inspections by a pest control professional to detect and treat termite infestations, using methods such as foam sprays, dusts, and baits.
5. Cellulose debris removal: Crawl space with any cellulose debris that is a conducive condition to termites will be removed. 
6. Scrape and treat: Surface fungus conducive from any current leaks & moisture will be scraped with a wire brush and treated with Boracare a high sodium content chemical that conditions and protects wood from surface fungus. 

7. Toilet reset: Loose toilets can cause leaks under the crawlspace area. Toilet resets not only re fasten the toilet it prevents future leaks and moisture issues that are conducive to termites and fungus damage.
