Are Wood-Destroying Termites Destroying Your San Diego Home?
When you buy a home, you invest in your family and your future. It makes sense to want to keep your investment safe and in good repair. When termites make their way into your home, these pests will do everything in their power to undo all your hard work, turning the wooden structures of your house into their own personal feeding grounds.

Our San Diego, CA Termite Control Services
In order to effectively treat your home, we must first determine where termite activity is taking place. We begin each service visit with a thorough inspection and prepare a graph of areas within your home impacted by termites. At Bite Away Termite & Pest Control, we understand that not all termite infestations are the same. That’s why we offer unique treatment options for each variety of termite species you are likely to find in your home.
Our primary treatment method for drywood termite infestations is a localized treatment, either chemical or non-chemical. This method is most effective for small-scale infestations in easily-accessible areas.
For large-scale termite problems, we offer full-home fumigation services. This service option is ideal when termite activity is present in different locations or inside inaccessible areas of your home.
Subterranean termite infestations require a different method of treatment than drywood termites. In order to fully eliminate subterranean termites, we apply a chemical barrier between the colony and the structural wood of your home.
If the source of your termite infestation is under a slab of concrete, we drill a sequence of holes into the slab in order to pressure inject this product into the soil.
If the source of the infestation is under a crawl space or at the interior or exterior foundation walls, we will trench the soil then apply termiticide to the soil.
Additional Termite Services
In addition to the termite treatments listed above, we offer the following specialty termite services:
- We perform termite/WDO inspections for escrow and standalone.
- We also have in-house construction crews that perform any repairs needed due to termite damage, and we guarantee that work for a year. Our skilled carpenters do a fantastic job and leave the house looking great!
- Bite Away can also perform fumigations, pervading termite inspections, local treatments, and subterranean termite treatments in addition to general pest control services.
What Are These Winged Termites?
Termites are silent pest invaders that often go undetected; this is because these pests work behind the scenes, slowly and quietly eating away at your home over time. It’s likely you have never directly encountered one of these pests, but if you have, it is likely a reproductive termite swarmer. Some traits to look for when identifying termites are long wings, ⅜ to ⅝ of an inch long, an abdomen that joins at the thorax, and a reddish-brown head and thorax.
