I've heard this said about houses so many times in so many parts of the country:  "There are two types of homes -- those with termites now, and those that will get termites later."  Well, here we present information about how you can fight and control termites and other pests that can cost you a lot of money and destroy or seriously damage your home which is probably your family's biggest investment.  There has been great progress in termite control including the use of green termite control alternatives such as Orange Oil, heat, and electricity as in electric shock.  There have also been improvements in traditional methods including fumigation.  And now there are developments that can prevent attacks by insects.


Update February 16, 2011  I had a very interesting and educational discussion with the experts at Springer Termite about termites.  We've all heard wonderful things about Orange Oil but until now, I didn't know about some of the limitations that Orange Oil has for treating termites.  And the big problem with Orange Oil is that it's effects don't last too long and if it doesn't make contact with termites it won't work.  Orange Oil lacks what the industry calls a "transfer effect" which means it doesn't move from one termite to another termite.  Yes, Orange Oil is effective -- but it has limitations.  The experts at Springer Termite also told me that consumers are not always given the facts about which pest control methods actually work best, or how long they keep working after their use or application.  I thought about that and realized that even I never thought about asking how long this treatment is good for or how long that treatment is good for?

Watch our video report below with some vital tips on termite and pest control from Springer Termite.  In the meantime, call them at (818) 834-3825 and tell them you want to know more of these tips to help you decide on a plan to control pests in your home.  Also, go to for more information.


Pacific Coast Termite offers a free inspection for properties for homeowners that are not about to list their home for sale (that's only fair), and they do offer the various green termite control methods.  Pacific Coast Termite not only serves Los Angeles County and Orange County and the other parts of Southern California, but they also serve Northern Califonia.  Not only do they offer orange oil for termite control, but they also offer a warranty on their work, and they can repair wood damage caused by termites.  They also offer TAP attic insulation which is a new kind of insulation which not only helps control the temperature in your home, but also helps to keep out loud noises and also can help control pests and insects.  Call Pacific Coast Termite at (800) NOW-1900 or go to their website for information.  Watch our video report below.


Update January 22, 2014  ECOLA Termite and Pest Management Services is well known for its alternative treatments for termite and pests including treating the house with hot air (heat) to kill pests, and using microwaves and electricity to kill termites.  ECOLA also uses certain treatments so that residents do not have to move out of their homes and treatments that will not endanger household pets.  See our special page for ECOLA by clicking here.
