The Organic Termite Killer Cutting A Swathe Through Southern California Infestations

The Organic Termite Killer Cutting A Swathe Through Southern California Infestations

Recently, a friend of mine who happens to be a homeowner here in California made an unpleasant discovery. Following some telltale signs, she and her partner managed to capture some unwelcome guests as they were chowing down on the pergola shading her backyard: termites!

After catching these new destructive tenants red-handed, the couple began investigating more of the house and found that the damage was already quite advanced. They had a full-on infestation on their hands, meaning they would need to call in the big guns.

My friend, however, was very hesitant to request the assistance of a professional extermination company. Pest control meant spraying down her house with noxious chemicals or, heaven forbid, tenting her house and venting it with stronger poisons.

This hesitation was caused by two primary factors: her conscientious environmentalism and concern for the health and safety of her children and pets. After everything she had read about the industrial poisons they use to control pest populations in agriculture, it was difficult for her to turn hypocritical and demand that they be used on her property.

Thankfully, the pest control industry has been evolving with the rest of society and has worked to create some less destructive solutions. Naturally occurring, non-toxic chemicals that are still effective against termites and other pests have been developed and are gaining popularity and widespread adoption among exterminators.

One of the first pest control companies to see the value in providing organic termite treatments was Natural Science Exterminating. At nearly 40 years old, it managed to outmaneuver many much younger companies by adopting these treatments early and providing top-tier service for its clients, as attested to in their near-perfect scores on Google and Yelp.

Take a look:

We have been using Natural Science Exterminating for years. We started back when they were called Hired Gun. We initially hired them to deal with a termite problem. They were able to effectively treat the issue without resorting to tenting. (The other firms we contacted for quotes all wanted to tent.) We continue to use them for annual termite inspections and also for bi-monthly treatment of spiders and ants. Brian, our exterminator, is friendly, knowledgeable, efficient, and on-time. He answers all of our questions and gives us options for the best treatment solution for any of our issues.

The team at Natural Science uses compounds like orange oil, an extract from orange peel rinds that melts the exoskeleton of insectoid pests, and an EPA-approved non-toxic treatment for larger infestations. These chemicals pose little danger of bioaccumulation in the local food chain, making them ideal for environmentally conscious homeowners.

Finding a termite infestation is never pleasant, but it shouldn’t send you into a spiral of anxiety over the ramifications of removing it. If you need a termite treatment without the guilt, get in contact with Natural Science Exterminating today.
