Common Areas of the Home Where You May Find Termites

Termites are more than just a common household pest; they are the every homeowner’s worst nightmare. Why? Because termites cause an estimated $5 billion in damage each year, with the average homeowner spending upwards of $3,000 in repairs. Luckily, the sooner a termite infestation is dealt with, the less it will cost you. Some of the common areas to check for when inspecting your home for the signs of a termite infestation include:

Hardwood Flooring
If you have a “slab” foundation, then termites can enter from the ground at any location and begin feeding on your hardwood floors. If your house has a sub-ground foundation, then begin your inspection near the edge of the floor since termites will enter from the perimeter of the foundation.

Garages and Workshops
Chances are good that your garage or workshop contains a considerable amount of wood (including tools, spare lumber, and firewood). When you’re working inside of your garage or workshop, be sure to keep an eye out for the tell-tale signs of a termite problem.

Attics and Crawlspaces
In most cases, subterranean termites must be in contact with soil to receive the moisture they need to survive. However, there are certain species of termite which are known to build aboveground nests in dark and damp areas – areas much like your attic and crawlspace.

Exterior Foundations
Exterior inspections may provide you with the only opportunity to catch termites before they invade your home. Be sure to check the exterior foundation, siding, and wood carefully for signs of termite activity and areas where termites may enter your home (such as cracks in the foundation or siding).

If you suspect that your home is under attack, then don’t hesitate to contact the termite control specialists at Pacific Coast Termite. Not only do we treat current termite infestations, but we also treat your home with preventative pest control treatments to protect against future infestations.

Rodent Exclusion

Keep unwanted guests out of your home
Rodents are unwanted guests in our homes. Rodents can chew through electrical wires causing a fire hazard. They contaminate our homes with hair, feces, and urine. They damage our property by burrowing and gnawing. Rodents spread disease and they may bite. Rodent feces and urine are a source of gastrointestinal diseases such as Salmonellosis or E-coli infections, and respiratory diseases such as Hantavirus. The rat flea has been an important agent of transmission for Plague and Murine typhus. Rodents build nests from soft material such as insulation, paper or cloth.
Let Pacific Coast Termite remove these pests from your home. Our rodent specialist will perform an exclusion by sealing up the entry points. We can also clean and sanitize your attic.

Keep Rodents Out of Your Home
Once inside, rodents not only destroy your walls, insulation, and food, but can also transmit diseases including salmonella and hantavirus. At Pacific Coast Termite, we have the expertise and experience to effectively make your home rodent-proof.

Keeping Rodents Out
It is a good idea to take preventative measures against rodent invasions each fall. First, seal off all possible rodent entry points. This includes small holes on your exterior walls and gaps around your doorways and windows. A professional pest control service may be more able to identify and seal these rodent entryways. Next, secure potential food in sealed containers and clean any crumbs from your cupboards and pantry. If you know that there are rodents in your yard, then you may want to set traps around the perimeter of your home to help reduce the population that could potentially invade it.

Identifying Rodent Infestation
There are a number of things that you may notice when a rodent has moved into your house, but the most common sign is the droppings that you may find deposited in your cupboards. Other signs of rodent infestation include food packages with corners chewed off, damage to the entry points of your house, and nesting areas filled with shredded paper or fabric.

Removing Rodents and Their Messes
If rodents do make their way into your home, then it is important to have them removed as soon as possible. Pacific Coast Termite can do exclusions and remove any nests that they may have built. You can also have your home sanitized to ensure that all traces of the rodents are eliminated.

To learn more about keeping your home rodent-free, contact Pacific Coast Termite today. With our rodent exclusion service, we can seal potential points of entry and clean up the mess if you do have a rodent invasion. For more information, call us at (888) 685-3108

TAP Insulation

T∙A∙P is a revolutionary safe insulation for new and existing homes & buildings made from recycled paper that incorporates a borate-based pest control into the product. Not only does T∙A∙P outperform traditional insulation in nearly every category, it also controls pests such as ants, termites, and cockroaches at the same time!

What Is Pest Control Insulation?
T∙A∙P is a natural fiber insulation treated with boric acid and other proprietary formulations to produce fire-retardant,, thermally superior, sound-deadening insulation with pest-controlling properties. T∙A∙P is acceptable for use around humans and pets, but deadly to cockroaches, silverfish, ants, termites, and many other crawling insects. T∙A∙P is a U. S. EPA-labeled pesticide.
T∙A∙P is the result of a revolutionary merger of two well-respected technologies-natural cellulose insulation and natural borate pesticides. The two created Thermal, Acoustical & Pest Control Insulation, the only stabilized pest control insulation. As part of a total pest management package, T∙A∙P can be used to cap existing insulation in attics, or can be installed in the attics, walls and crawlspaces of new construction.

Homeowners Benefits And General Information
TAP INTO THE BENEFITS

  • Thermal insulation is a material that has air-filled cells or voids, or heat-reflective surfaces, which retard the transfer of heat to cold.
  • Acoustical insulation retards the transmission of sound.
  • Pest Control insulation, while performing the other functions of thermal and acoustical, is labeled to control listed insects. By Federal law, such insulation (and the manufacturing plant) must be registered with the U.S. EPA, and carry an EPA-approved label. Additionally, the product must be registered with the pest control authorities in each state in which it is sold or manufactured.
  • Because T∙A∙P is an EPA-labeled pesticide, in many states only a licensed PMP may sell the insulation.

Pretreatment Care

10 Reasons Why…
Every Home Owner Should Specify Bora-Care® Termite Pretreatments
Pacific Coast Termite can repair damage from termites and dry-rot. We will perform repairs on your home, business or rental property with the same commitment to excellence as our termite treatments. Unlike traditional contractors, our wood division not only repairs the damage but also takes steps to prevent future damage.

1.BUILDERS ARE SAVING A FULL DAY OF CYCLE TIME
BY SWITCHING TO BORA-CARE® PRETREATS.
Bora-Care® eliminates the need to coordinate schedules between concrete companies and pest management professionals (PMPs). Bora-Care® is applied during the dried-in phase of construction.

2.BORA-CARE® ELIMINATES WEATHER DELAYS.
Traditional soil treatments require application to dry ground after the footers are dug. Bora-Care® is applied directly to the wood and concrete on walls, subfloors, sill plates, piers and expansion joints, as well as around pipe chases and plumbing. Weather is simply not a factor.

3.BORA-CARE® ELIMINATES THE NEED
FOR CREWS TO LEAVE THE JOB SITE.
In traditional soil pretreatments, workers are required by law to leave the site during application and stay away until the application is completed.With Bora-Care®, your crew can keep right on working.

4.HUD ALLOWS BORA-CARE® TREATMENTS.
The United States Department of Housing and Urban Development’s (HUD) 99-A form allows direct wood treatment of Bora-Care® as a primary termite treatment in new home construction.

5.EFFICACY TESTS SHOW PROVEN RESULTS.
Research from a 12-year study by the USDA Forest Service and Mississippi State University’s Forest Products Laboratory showed wood treated with Bora-Care® stopped termite attacks and prevented subterranean termites from tubing over treated wood. In addition, tests conducted at Louisiana State University have shown that Bora-Care® applied to concrete surfaces will prevent Formosan termite tubing. Treated wood is also protected against carpenter ants, old house borers, powderpost beetles and decay fungi.

6.TREATMENTS NEAR WATER ARE NO LONGER A CONCERN.
With soil treatments, there is the concern of chemicals leaching into a nearby water source. When you pretreat the wood and concrete, that’s ALL you treat.

7.SOIL TERMITICIDES CAN CAUSE
CPVC PLUMBING PIPES TO LEAK.
Bora-Care® is the first termiticide listed as chemically compatible with Noveon piping systems. Bora-Care® replaces old-fashioned soil termiticides and has been found to be compatible with the CPVC materials of FlowGuard Gold®, BlazeMaster®, and Corzan® pipe and fittings. FGG/BM® System Compatible indicates that this product has been tested and is monitored on an ongoing basis to assure chemical compatibility. In addition, Bora-Care® will not corrode metal fasteners, fittings or nails.

8.TOXICITY IS A RISING CONCERN AMONG HOMEOWNERS.
With traditional soil treatments, hundreds of gallons of pesticides are pumped into the ground under and around a home. Bora-Care® is a low odor termiticide that is applied directly to the wood.

9.INTERNATIONAL BUILDING CODE.
Bora-Care® is listed in the International Building Code and the International Residential Code. Bora-Care® meets the sill plate end-cut requirements set by building codes and the American Wood-Preservers’ Association (AWPA M4).

10. MORE DURABLE WOOD TREATMENT
Excavation and landscaping do not affect the treatment. Leaky water lines, improper drainage and even the landscaping process can break a soil termiticide barrier, rendering soil pretreatments ineffective by the time the house is complete. With Bora-Care®, you’re treating the wood, and once again, a problem is eliminated.

TREATMENT METHODS

XT-2000 Orange Oil Plus®
Bora-Care®
Premise®
Termidor®
Altriset®

Structure Treatment
With the use of proper techniques, Pacific Coast Termite can utilize XT-2000 to treat for dry wood termites in Orange County, San Francisco, San Jose, and Los Angeles.
This diagram illustrates a hypothetical termite infestation of twelve colonies (noted in red) over fifty-nine linear feet of wood. Some of these areas may seem inaccessible without the use of a more drastic method of termite treatment, however, the scope and treatment method enables the user of XT-2000 in Orange County or Los Angeles to treat areas within wall voids in a simple and efficient manner.
Before the development of XT-2000, more drastic termite treatment methods were required, but now a structure can be treated within a minimal amount of time.

Drill Treatment
The basic method of using XT-2000 is quite simple. After locating the area of infestation, drill in a staggered pattern from the point of infestation out 30 inches in all directions. This will maximize the coverage of a single treatment. Once drilled, insert the B&G and inject XT-2000 for a sufficient period of time to permeate the wood members.
When treating an infested area, it is essential to use an effective drill pattern, thus ensuring the complete saturation of both the infected and surrounding wood with XT-2000 targeting the termites where they live and where they might escape to. When drilling it is important to have a variety of bits so that infested boards can be deeply penetrated without passing through the entire board.
When injecting XT-2000, it is important to use a generous amount of product. Though efficacy studies have demonstrated that a minute amount of d-limonene is quite potent, it is better to use more product to maximize the potential effect. A good rule of thumb is to apply XT-2000 from a B&G at a low pressure for at least 5 seconds per hole drilled.
When using the B&G injector, it is more effective to utilize a lower pressure as a higher pressure will encourage resistance. A lower pressure will ensure that XT-2000 is soaking porous cells of the wood being treated.
It is sometimes helpful to start injecting directly at the location of the kickout. As the liquid flows through the termite gallery, the other holes of the drill pattern may begin to drip product and provide further evidence of areas of infestation.

Scope Treatment
The reasons XT-2000 Plus can be used to treat Drywood Termites in your Northern or Southern California home, is due to the scope and treat method. Areas once considered inaccessible become visible through the use of Boroscopes, similar to those used in complicated surgeries.
When there is reason to believe termite infestation extends into inaccessible areas such as wall voids, locate the studs or other concealed wood members with a stud finder. It is important to avoid other concealed items such as electrical wiring and plumbing when using the scope. Once the suspected area of infestation is located, drill an entry point in the surrounding material to insert the Boroscope. If a concealed area is found to be infested with the Boroscope, simply drill and treat the wood member using XT-2000 Plus and patch when finished.
If an infestation is suspected higher within a wall void, based on evidence located in windowsills or other areas, a Northern or Southern California technician may need to scope this area as well.

Free Inspection Request

The first vital step is to get an inspection of the home. This thorough investigation will tell you if, and how severe, the infestation may be. The signs of an infestation may not be obvious to the inexperienced. Damage caused by termites may go unnoticed for years, as the colonies grow and multiply within your walls. Another reason to obtain a free inspection from Pacific Coast Termite is to give you a broader overview of your home’s health and to reveal any potential dry-rot and moisture related problems. Our professionals will create a custom prevention plan tailored to your home’s individual needs.
Restrictions Apply: if your home is for sale or in escrow there is a $350 fee for the inspection.
