San Diego Termite Fumigation Experts
Insects that feed or tunnel into wood can seriously damage houses, apartments, and other dwellings or structures. Each year termites cause more than 5 million dollars in damage to structures. Depending on the extent or location of the infestation, fumigation is the only way to completely eradicate all drywood termites in a structure. If you have termites in an area that is not accessible, a localized treatment will not eradicate the termites in those inaccessible areas which is why a fumigation would be recommended.

Here in San Diego, there are two types of termites that can damage your home – drywood termites and subterranean termites. Each type is different and must be treated separate and in different ways. For example, drywood termites live in the wooden structure of your home and are controlled by localized treatments or fumigation. Subterranean termites live in the soil below your home and are controlled by a treatment to the soil such as a trench and treat or a drill and treat. A professional termite inspector can help you determine whether or not you have a termite problem and, if so, what kind of termite infestation you have and what type of treatment is needed to get rid of them.
What Happens During a Fumigation?
Fumigation is one of the only ways to completely eradicate Drywood termites. This is performed by placing a tent over the structure and a true gas being released into the home. All pets and people must vacate the home for a minimum of two nights and three days.
Fumigation – SDG&E
Prior to the start of your fumigation, by law SDG&E must come out and cap your gas. The company will schedule this to be completed for you. However, it is the homeowner’s responsibility to have the gas restored the day after your fumigation is completed. There will be a re-entry notice posted on your front door by the fumigators. You will need to keep this notice to show to your SDG&E service technician to restore your gas.

There are two types of termites that can damage your home – drywood termites and subterranean termites. Each type is different and must be treated separately. A professional termite inspector can help you determine whether or not you have a termite problem and, if so, what kind of termite infestation you have. When it comes to termites, you tent your home to erradicate drywood termites. Subterrnanean termites live in the soil below the home. However if there are subterrnanean termites present in the actual structure the fumigation will erradicate them, as for the subterranean termites still down in the soil, it would take a completely different treatment to control and erradicate them.
