San Diego’s Best Termite Inspection and Control
From houses to houseboats, historic structures to commercial properties, Thrasher Termite & Pest Control protects San Diego properties from termites and other wood destroying pests. We’re the leader in identifying and controlling Formosan subterranean termites in La Mesa, and Western subterranean termites and drywood termites found elsewhere in San Diego County. When you suspect termites, or are preparing your home for sale, call Thrasher for inspection, control, and repair.
All termite services begin with an inspection by a licensed, experienced inspector, followed by a written report. Our inspector will note wood destroying organisms: drywood termites, subterranean termites, dampwood termites, fungus/dryrot, wood-boring beetles, carpenter ants, carpenter bees.
The report includes a list of damage found, recommendations for treatment and repair, and recommendations for preventing conditions that make your home vulnerable to wood-destroyers.
When termites or dryrot is confined to one or two areas, the structure may be a candidate for local treatment. This means only the visible, affected area is treated. The Thrasher Inspector will advise you if local treatment is a good option for your structure and provide alternatives if it is not.
Drywood Termite Fumigation with Vikane
The primary recommendation for treatment of drywood termites is fumigation. By the time evidence of drywood termites becomes visible, there is a high likelihood of multiple colonies in the structure. Fumigation is the proven method of exterminating all drywood termites.
Subterranean Termite Baiting
Subterranean termites are controlled through perimeter soil treatments, baiting with monitored bait stations, or both. The treatment we prescribe takes into account the species of subterranean termites, the size of the infestation, the landscape around your home, and your goals.
Thrasher master carpenters are skilled at repairing wood damage. We are licensed to perform structural repairs, and to manage projects as complex as complete bathroom to kitchen remodels. We’re licensed and bonded. Just as with our termite control service, we perform the least invasive repair remedy for problem areas in your home. Remember, after your home is treated for termites or dryrot, it is essential to repair damaged areas to prevent re-infestation and to prevent secondary problems.
