Termite Treatment

Extermination Services

Here on the Central Coast and surrounding areas, we have three different kinds of termites that cause structural damage and infest our homes:

The Drywood Termite (Kalotermitidae/Incisitermes minor), the Subterranean Termite (Reticulitermes flavipes R. hesperus), and the Dampwood Termite (Zootermopsis angusticollis). These termites live in your home and /or under your home. They eat into the wood framing and cause considerable damage if left untreated. If caught early enough, a local treatment can help control the infestation and bring it to an end. However, once that colony grows too large to be effectively treated with a local treatment, a fumigation or complete perimeter treatment will be needed. All of our complete treatments come with an industry leading five year guarantee. We take our business seriously and will provide our customers with efficient, quality service.

No matter what type of termite it is, they all can do considerable damage to your home if left untreated. In order to protect your home, call Genesis Termite and Pest Control today.

Fumigation

Fumigations are an important tool used to fight termite and pest infestations. Fumigations are the only way to completely eradicate a targeted pest or Drywood Termite colonies. Fumigations have been completed for decades and the process has continually developed to be more safe and effective. Fumigations are safe for both the workers that perform the fumigation and the occupants of the structure if properly administered. The active ingredient in the fumigant is “Sulfuryl Fluoride.” The common trade name we contract with is Vikane. A fumigation is a sure fire method that will eliminate the target. When you schedule a fumigation through Genesis Termite and Pest Control, you are protected by a five year guarantee to affirm the total eradication of the pests targeted. You can feel better knowing your home is no longer infested. Also, the five year guarantee stays with the home or structure. So if you are selling your home or structure, the guarantee transfers to the buyer. Call Genesis today and schedule your fumigation.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are drywood termites?

The Drywood Termite (Kalotermitidae/Incisitermes minor) lives in your home. They eat into the wood framing and cause substantial damage if left untreated. If caught early enough, a local treatment can help control the infestation and bring it to an end. However, once that colony grows too large to be effectively treated with a local treatment, a fumigation will be needed to completely rid the home of Drywood Termites.

What are subterranean termites?

The Subterranean Termite (Reticulitermes flavipes R. hesperus) lives in the ground and can come up into your home through cold joints, cracks in the concrete, faulty grades, and a number of other ways. If left untreated, these termites can do a tremendous amount of damage. A common approach to defending your home from these termites is to administer a complete perimeter soil treatment in order to eradicate the colony and give your home the protection it needs.

What are dampwood termites?

The Dampwood Termites (Zootermopsis angusticollis) will only infest wood with moisture or “damp wood”. We mostly see these termites in damp, heavily wooded areas. They are an easy fix. Controlling the moisture and locally treating the wood is one of the best ways to eliminate this type of termite.

Are fumigations safe?

Yes. Fumigations have been completed for decades. Over the years they have been made safer for the people that perform the fumigations and they occupants of the structure being fumigated. You are not allowed to come back into your home until the home is completely clear of any chemical readings.

Does your company use Termidor?

Yes. We have been educated and passed the test in order to use Termidor. Termidor is the leading treatment product in our industry and has years of data to back their success. We use it for “local treatments” of Drywood Termites and Complete Perimeter treatments for Subterranean Termites. Also, when appropriate, we will use it on labeled pests in or around your home.
