Why Fumigate?

Fumigation VS Spot Treatment

You have a choice when it comes to getting rid of these house-munching monsters. Decide which termite treatment is best for you and your home.

Whole-Home Fumigation

  • Kills all termites, even hidden or inaccessible colonies
  • One treatment eliminates 100% of termites
  • No drilling necessary
  • Residents must prepare their home and leave it for a few days
  • Costs more than most spot treatment, requires leaving home for a few days and possible kennel costs

SpotTreatment

  • Colonies must be found to be treated
  • Multiple treatments may be necessary if all termites are not eliminated
  • Requires drilling
  • Pest management professionals must inspect the home, and residents may have to leave until the chemical dries
  • Cost per treatment is less than fumigation, but multiple services are often needed

(includes orange oil and liquid)

Heat

  • Unlikely to kill all termites throughout the home
  • Thick wood timbers, drywall, insulation, concrete and tile take longer to heat and may affect how well the treatment works.
  • No drilling necessary
  • Many common household items are heat-sensitive and must be removed or protected — residents may have to leave their home for one day
  • Cost is equivalent to fumigation, minus hotel and kennel costs

A Look Inside Termite Damage

Drywood termites might be tiny little bugs, but they cause big damage — hundreds of millions of dollars big. Even worse, while you might be able to see some signs of termites in your house, there could be many more hiding behind walls, in crawl spaces or in the attic.

How it Works

The Fumigation Process

1

Your home is carefully prepared and tented

Think of the tent as a balloon; it keeps the gas in so the termites die.

2

The tent is filled with fumigant

The precise amount of fumigant makes its way throughout your home, seeking out every termite no matter where it’s hiding.

3

Every single termite dies

No more invaders hiding in your walls, eating away at your home.

4

The tent is vented & your home is termite-free

The gas completely exits your home and does not leave behind surface residue or living termites.

How to Prepare

  • Remove or prepare unsealed food and medications.**
  • Make house key arrangements with your pest management professional.
  • Move indoor and potted outdoor plants away from your home.
  • Open waterproof covers on all mattresses and pillows.***

Day ofFumigation

AfterFumigation

  • Don’t re-enter your home until a licensed fumigator says it's OK to do so.
