Why Treebark Termite and Pest Control?

  • Naturally Derived Compound Chlorantraniliprole Based on the Organic Insecticide Ryania Speciosa’s mode of action.
  • Mimics Mother Nature’s Way of Controlling Pests by attacking Ryodine Receptors of Insects, Just like when the tree senses its under attack it produces compounds of insecticide.
  • Controls the Termites within Hours, Not Days like Traditional Fumigation or Local Treatments
  • Stops Termites From Feeding – Wood Damage Stops within Hours. The Chloranthripole clone of the Ryania Tree Compounds Destroys The Mandible of the Termites Preventing Feeding.
  • Free Organic Pest Control Service included with Treebark Final System Install. That’s right not only do we provide Naturally Derived Termite Control we specialize in Organic Pest Control Services.
  • Reduced Risk Pesticide – First in Nation for this Program – NO SIGNAL WORD. That means there’s less risk towards humans and pets. Less than everything else on the market. This Indian Lady Downed a bottle of Undiluted chlorantraniliprole and was fine I don’t recommend you drinking pesticides but it is interesting to know that someone has drank an entire bottle of concentrate without suffering fatal consequences considering we use 1/2 the bottle and mix it with 25 gallons of water.
  • Fumigation Gas can get trapped and in unfortunate cases results in Accidently Killing People. That’s a Pretty Harsh Worst Case Example, Here’s another about a boy in denver. The worst case with Treebark Final Service is I Miss Something and Have to Come Back.
  • People don’t talk about how often Fumigation’s Fail, (*8519.5 (b) Failed Fumigations). When it happens, they “redo” the entire process over for free. How Fun. I estimate 1 in 10 Fumigations Fail. That’s Been My Experience. Sue Me.
  • My Technicians are Live Scanned (Finger Printed), Drug Screened, Licensed, Bonded and Insured. Fumigation tarp guys are not required to submit to any of these things and there are reports of burglaries because of it. Yes, you might trust the field representative you’re speaking with but do you trust the tarp guys who show up to actually do the work? Remember, their fumigation tarp guys are going to be inside your home, opening your cabinets and drawers.

History of Lakewood

Lakewood is often referred to as an instant city due to its recent and sudden origins. In 1950 it boasted lima bean fields, but by 1960 it had been transformed into a city that was well-developed already. This makes it a model example of the post-Second World War American suburb.

The city turns out to be a master planned community that arose following World War II. The developers who changed the Southern California map forever were Louis Boyar, Ben Weignart, and Mark Taper. They started the developer’s plan at the end of 1949 and completed it in 1953 in a rapid succession that encouraged the building of mass produced housing which reached its hey-day in the 1950’s.

This allowed for Second World War vets to obtain new home loans without having to make a down payment. They received a 30 year mortgage for what was at the time a mere four percent interest rate. The opening sales’ day on March 24th of 1950 saw around 30,000 individuals in line to tour the street of seven model homes. Through the conclusion of April, over 200,000 different people had come into the Lakewood Park sales office. Over 1,000 individual families had bought houses at an average of 30 homes sold per day. One day the development saw 107 houses sell in only an hour. Monthly payments were only from $44 to $56, which covered principal, insurance, and interest.

The construction of Lakewood shattered all time records. In under three years time, empty fields transformed into 17,500 homes. Every seven and a half minutes, the development finished a new house. They built from 40 to 60 different homes each day, completing a new record amount for a single day with 110 built from sunup to sundown.

The developers carefully planned the major boulevards in town. There are frontage roads on both sides throughout the residential districts. Frontage roads access the main road off of periodically spaced collector streets. It was hailed as a break through compromise from typical urban grids and winding drives with cul-de-sacs by planners of the time.

While unincorporated, Lakewood rapidly expanded into a development of over 70,000 individuals. This caused a substantial growth in needs for services. The city faced three choices in 1953. They could become annexed by Long Beach, stay unincorporated and use county services, or actually incorporate as their own city and continue to utilize county services with a contract. Residents opted to become their own city. They set a new record at the time as the biggest community in America to do so. Lakewood became the first such city in Los Angeles County to incorporate dating back to 1939.

The city has received nods for being a California pioneer in providing services. They continue to contract out the majority of their municipal services through Los Angeles County primarily, as well as to private companies and other public agencies. Lakewood became the first such city in the country to contract out all of its various municipal services upon incorporation, earning it the distinction of “first contract city in America.” A number of other suburbs of Los Angeles have subsequently used this “Lakewood Plan,” including Bellflower, Cerritos, Diamond Bar, and Walnut. Around half of all Los Angeles County cities now contract out their law enforcement services via the County’s Sheriff Department.

In 1953, a man named Harold Butler opened Danny’s Donuts, that became renamed as Denny’s Restaurant in 1959. It remains the home of the original Denny’s location in America.
