Free Termite Inspection in Santa Monica
There are a few areas in Santa Monica homes that MUST be inspected annually. Termites and Pests have evolved knowing that once detected their lively hood is at risk. They have become the ultimate “Hide and Wait” creatures often appearing in the most inconvenient times. knowing the hot spots and the areas that they prefer is crucial in detection. Let’s go through a short list of extremely important inspection areas:
The attic opening in most Santa Monica homes is going to fall into two places, inside the closet or in the hallway. Infestations inside the attic are usually caused by one of two scenarios. Scenario 1 assumes the infestation first occurred from the outside rafter tails leading the termites inside.
The other Scenario, 2, would be the infestation occurring when a swarmer entered the home attic from a vent. Most attics have vents on both sides of the home for ventilation. Swarmers enter the home through these ventilation vents. We typically see infestation around the sills of the vents.
Being honest with yourself, when the last time you went under your home? I have asked this question maybe 1,000 times over my career and the answer is always the same. Too long to remember. This is very problematic as Termite Damage can occur in as little as two years with dry wood and 4 years with subterranean. If it has been years since the last time like many, you likely have an infestation causing damage.
We are dealing with nature. Termites are present in trees, fences, and underground. They are not specifically targeting your home but seeing as all the wood under your home is exposed… They can “Smell” it and head straight for it. These insects have evolved over the years to be extremely capable of finding wood to infest.
Another hotbed of infestation. Garages due to the wide-open nature of them and a lot contain exposed unfinished wood studs. We see a lot of infestation around the garage door jam. Once inside they spread to the other members of the structure. Garages are able to be self inspected. If you are seeing droppings or experiencing sand like pellets that return after sweeping, chances are you have a dry wood termite infestation.
Exterior Wood Members Like Rafters and Fascia
The most common of all the areas mentioned. The exterior of your home gets attacked by flying termites every single year. No joke. If you don’t have an infestation today chances are over the years you will have one. Just a matter of time. Inspecting the exterior of your home by yourself is much harder as the wood is often primed and painted.
This causes the termites to eat from the center of the board first. Damage beneath painted surfaces can take a few years of damage before the paint breaks under the stress and reveals just how much damage has occurred. Even thought out of season, we get tons of calls around Christmas for Drywood termites from people putting their Christmas lights up.

We are full-service pest control and exterminating company. If you are seeing termites, pests, and or rats, call us today for a free inspection and estimate. Exterminating for rodents, rats, and mice doesn’t have to include poisons that place your family pets in harm’s way. We use the 300-year-old rat trap technique. You might think “Well I can do that” No. No, you can’t. You have already tried that’s why you are here. Don’t use baits. They are pure poison and because anything that consumes the bait is now poisoned anything that eats the carcass is also capable of being dealt a deadly dose of poison. Lots of terrible companies out there open the attic hatch, chuck bait around and then come back later hoping for dead rats. I cannot tell you how many dead rats in walls I have seen over the years. Gross.
