What Do Termites Look Like?
The termites in a colony are generally organized into the worker caste, the soldier caste, and the reproductive caste.
Worker termites are about 1/8 inch long and are blind, wingless, soft-bodied, and creamy white to grayish-white with a round head. They make up the majority of the termites that actually eat the wood. They are sterile and forage for food and water, construct and repair shelter tubes, feed and groom other termites, care for eggs and young, and participate in colony’s defense.
Soldier termites are also wingless and resemble workers except that they have a large, rectangular, yellowish-brown heads with long black mandibles.
Reproductive termites are the adult winged termites who have two pairs of long narrow wings of equal size, dark skin, and beaded antennae. They are black and about one centimeter long, with grayish transparent wings.Behavior
Swarming is the sudden, dramatic appearance termites in the daytime from February to April. After this behavior the male and females lose their wings, pair up, and form new colonies.

What To Expect From Our Treatment
We inject liquid termiticide deep into the soil around the foundation of your home, the area termites will have their colonies and tunnels leading into your home. This method of treatment is so effective it typically will destroy the colony and eliminate your termite problem in just one treatment.
To ensure you don’t have future termite problems we also install termite monitors. This monitoring system provides an effective termite early detection system for termites, but will not prevent termites from entering the structure.
Should activity be detected in the termite monitors or in the structure itself we respond immediately to protect your home. A new injection of liquid termiticide or baits will be added to ensure that any new termites are wiped out before they become a problem.
Do I need the All Inclusive Home Protection Plan? Can’t you just get rid of the termites?
We used to offer just a single one time treatment for pests but we no longer do. In our 20+ years of experience we have learned that a one time treatment is a disservice to our customers as the root of the problem isn’t being addressed. While we can eliminate your current termite problem, without a protective barrier in place your home is vulnerable to future invasions from termites and other pests.
To use an analogy, think of your home as being a medieval castle under invasion. We could expel the invaders from inside the castle, but with the walls breached nothing is going to stop those invaders from storming back in once we leave.
For the past 20+ years we’ve helped protect over 20,000 homes. We are Los Angeles County’s preferred Exterminator and Pest Control Company.
