What was my day like? Foundation Find Termite Find


We got two inspections in a marketing
event I’m not performing the home inspections my guys are I’m gonna sneak
up on them and see if I can find anything today the secret to real estate
agents hearts are through their stomachs and also good service just let me know
this is heavy extremely heavy didn’t get much video of the conference
they didn’t really want me videoing in there but it went really well I crushed
it let’s try to make it over to Robert’s inspection and try to figure out if we
can find anything good to show you on it we got two good finds in a funny one
this is a flood house they started ripping some walls out and we found some
termites and the garage foundations failing let me go show you those issues
all right so for the first time I’m going to show you the termites and I’m
gonna show you why they chose this area but mainly I want to show you what
termite damage looks like so let’s show you that so you can see how this on its
the woods almost like paper like and you have a lot of mud inside of here
this is all related to termite damage you also get these mud tubes here this
is what they use to travel Oh perfect yeah so you can see you can see how it’s
a little thick it’s not so granule II like if I touch this and this was ants it would
just fall right out let’s say use this for cover and then here you go all
around the window too as well pulling across the top right here across
the top right here in down same scenario Robert found termites in
this corner it’s actually a pretty good find and I’ll show you why they chose
this area too as well so right here in the corner really hard to find but he’s
able to pull back the wood and there’s a lotta termite activity through this the
stud right here alright so the main reason why they chose the chose this
area on the house it’s the perfect area for them they have wood to ground
contact they’re going to have a constant saw at the source of moisture coming off
the roof right here and also at the base you have a lot of wood to ground content
they were able to stay there and nobody could ever know that they were moving
because the sheet rock was in place they probably got a little bit of debris on
the inside let me show you why they chose the garage so on the garage the
reason why they chose this spot same scenario would a ground contact you also
have this nice little tree perfect amount of shade and moisture so let me
get a little closer so you can see Robert likes to call this the termite
honey hole alright for this next issue the garage foundation has failed this
happened a lot whenever it flooded in the area there’s a lot of movement
across the slab good thing the house is ok there was just very very little
movement but the garage is split in half and let me show you how I know and what
I was looking for ok so you can see right here or the crack goes straight
through the slab goes all the way down to the bottom and it travels all the way through one of the main
reasons why this happened is you have the tree over here get the flood it
costs a lot of movement and that’s the reason why the slab dropped not an
engineer but it’s just an educated guess alright so for the funny one I just
wanted to show it to you real quick I have a perfectly working shower in this
the flood home they like they like the way it looks I guess they kept it so you
know you know the shower pan is perfect it’s holding this water all the grout
looks good you know I got hot and cold water no your your shower might be I
mean your also might be flooded but you still can take a shower all right you
know the spiel by now if you please like and subscribe to the videos and if you
have any questions please reach out leave a comment thanks bye

Will treating termites cause them to move or swarm somewhere else?


It’s Isaac Camacho from Accurate Termite and Pest Control. I do a lot of driving around and I figured I’d take the time
to answer a few of the questions that I hear very often. One that’s really common, a
very common misconception is that if you do a termite treatment that you’ll cause
the termites to move so I’ll give you a couple of examples we did a job for a
Senior Community multi-family; lots of units with senior citizens that live
in the community and they had a termite infestations basically throughout. They had
small patios. The fences had termites and they also had a termite infestation in the attics, in the wall, things like that when we were a part of the bidding process they had a
few vendors they interviewed individually one of the vendors that they had interviewed
told them that if they removed or treated the fences alone meaning they
didn’t do anything for the attics or anything on the interiors that termites
in the fences would move into the units and I’ve actually heard that, it is a common
misconception and another example is when we’re tenting a house you know you
covering it with a tarp looks like big circus tent, I’ve heard the neighbors say oh
great we’re going to get them now or sometimes when we do it ending of a
large complex whether it be apartments whatever it may be and they do a
building at a time people in the next building think “Oh, great we’re gonna get them
now” and again that’s not true and I’ve heard that repeated even
people in my industry repeat that misconception its just not true. In
california we’re not doing anything that would cause the termites to move.
We’re not using what would be known as a repellent whether it be a fumigation or local treatment or even
if you’re removing a fence like in the first example. If you remove the fence that has termites in it, you’re going to remove that termite problem. That will not cause them to move
into the building perhaps with the vendor meant was that
if you remove the fence and don’t do the interiors, well you’re obviously not
gonna take care of the problem that’s inside. That’s obvious but treating only
the fence will not cause termites in the fence to move. The product will not cause them to
move, the product itself will not cause them to swarm in any kind of way.
That’s true in fumigation as well. A fumigant is released inside of a tent and it is not a repellent; in
fact, it’s not even a contact kill. That means that it is very possible for me to come
in contact with the products that we are using and not die immediately. And that
is for toxicity reasons that is reasons that we don’t use a lot of highly toxic
things in California. So, it’s just not going to happen if your
neighbor’s house is being fumigated that fumigation will not cause your neighbors
termites to move into your house. Just doesn’t happen. However, if you live right
next to a house that had a severe enough termite infestation, well there’s a chance that you have a termite infestation as well. If you are near where termites have swarmed in the
past, meaning termites swarmed into your
neighbor’s house at some point and its bad enough that it needs to be fumigated, well since you’re that close in proximity there’s a good chance they
swarmed into your house as well. So, you would definitely want to get it checked out. However,
the fumigation itself or even if your neighbors having local treatment done or
would repairs, whatever the case might be that’s not gonna cause the termites to move. But
anyways just be aware the proximity of a structure that is being treated you
might have a problem yourself so you would want to just get an inspection done. If you are
next to a building that’s being treated you don’t be afraid that you’re going to
receive a termite infestation. So, anyways that’s it for today

Is Orange Oil Safe? ☢️☠️☢️ What your termite inspector is not telling you.

Is Orange Oil Safe? ☢️☠️☢️ What your termite inspector is not telling you.


No, Orange Oil is not safe. Orange Oils is a pesticide. Ever since an aggressive marketing push of
Orange Oil in 2012, makers of Orange Oil and companies who still use it have made claims
that Orange Oil is a natural, organic cure to termites. They also make claims or imply that Orange
Oil is safe for the environment. The EPA responded specifically to these types
of claims in a letter in 2012 in which the EPA said that claims of even implied environmental
and health safety are “Potentially False and misleading”. They were ordered to remove any such claims
and stop distributing them. https://www3.epa.gov/pesticides/chem_search/ppls/071986-00002-20120502.pdf Any licensed termite control representative
that claims Orange Oil is safe either explicitly or implicitly is at best acting irresponsibly
out of ignorance, or, at worst unethical or blatantly dishonest. I have heard that some termite control representatives
selling Orange Oil make the claim that Orange Oil will leave behind a nice fragrance as
an added benefit to using Orange Oil. However the Orange Oil label clearly states:
“Harmful if inhaled. Avoid breathing vapor”
https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B70BV0KdzdXNMnIzcXhTMFNtOGs/view?usp=sharing The label also defines clearly that Orange
Oil poses potential environmental hazards and makes it clear that allowing Orange Oil
to contaminate water is prohibited. The most egregious cases I have heard of dishonest
Orange Oil peddlers is people who claim that Orange Oil product they will be using to treat
your home is an essential oil. If anyone tries to make that claim, kindly
ask them would they use the B&G carrying Orange Oil and apply that essential good smelling
oil generously on their skin. When they refuse, ask them to leave, if they
do it call the idiot an ambulance Did I mention that Orange Oil is as flammable
as rubbing alcohol? Oh, yeah. Orange Oil has the same combustible rating
from the NFPA as rubbing alcohol. In another video I discuss the problematic
results when UC Berkeley tested Orange Oils efficacy,
Orange Oil is not a green product, it is not a natural product, it is not organic. It is a pesticide.

The Importance of Protection Against Termites – Bulwark Exterminating Termite Control

The Importance of Protection Against Termites – Bulwark Exterminating Termite Control


This is a perfect example of how termites have
been in the forest for thousands of years before you build your house here these trees in this forest have been
around for a long time and the cycle of life
which termites recycling the wood is a constant, constant thing they set up camp mainly in dying trees like the one we have here I pulled this off of this stump here they, they’ll this tree has a root system that goes
for many, many feet all around this area and has this tree has died the rotting wood is all throughout this
area probably even under the house over here. This termite colony that I just pulled up
out of this stunmp is gonna follow those those dead roots everywhere all over the ground. So when a builder comes along and cuts
the top off the tree they don’t get all of the roots and those dead roots don’t look like this one because this one
has been cut off and you know with the trees here you’ve got roots under the ground into
the soil everywhere and enormous populations of termite colonies eating those
roots that’s why it’s really important that you set up a barrier around the
home we set up the bating system that creates a shield or Bulwark around the
your home so that if they do hit the wood on your home they’ll hit our bates first and wipe out
colony.

Termite Control : Will Termites Eat Treated Lumber?

Termite Control : Will Termites Eat Treated Lumber?


My name is Tyler Royce, I’m with TNT Pest
Control, we’re talking about will termites eat treated lumber? Lumber comes from the
mill, they actually do some treatment on the wood but termites has discovered will eat
through the treated lumber. What I found though actually when it’s newer they’ll eat the surface
of it. The older the wood gets the more vulnerable it is to termites, they will choose other
wood sources that are easier pickings, when the wood comes back from the mill, it has
gone through treatment stage. I’m not sure how intense of a termite treatment that the
wood has been through, I don’t think they do any type of termite treatment on the wood,
termites will eat the wood, they look for any type of wood source, they’re not really
picky at what kind of wood it is, it doesn’t seem to stop them. Your best defense to stop
the termites from eating your home would be have a professional come out and do a professional
treatment for termites for you.

Termite Control Products Overview

Termite Control Products Overview


Termite pest control services can be costly
and thats why we sell everything you need to do it yourself. Most companies will charge
about $1,500 to do a treatment. You can easily save that money with our expert advice and
professional products. Termite control products come in two major
categories: Liquid Termiticides and Bait Systems. Liquid termite products are concentrated formulas
which are mixed with water and applied around the foundation of your home in a trench or
in drilled holes if you have concrete areas around your foundation. Liquid termite treatments
build a barrier to help keep termites out of your home or structure, and require less
maintenance over time. Depending on the liquid termite product you choose, most treatments
only need to be repeated every 7-10 years. The second category, Termite Bait Systems,
are comprised of monitoring stations spaced at intervals around the perimeter of your
home. Each station holds an inspection cartridge which can be replaced with a deadly termite
bait if termites are detected. Bait stations should be checked quarterly for termite activity.
These systems can help you identify a problem before the termites invade the structure of
your home. Bait systems are a great choice when a liquid termite barrier is not appropriate
or when the use of chemicals in the ground is not desired. The benefit of using a termite
bait system is no drilling or trenching is needed; and no expensive equipment is required. And its that easy with the expert help from

Termite Control : What Do Termites Eat?

Termite Control : What Do Termites Eat?


My name’s Tyler Royce. I’m with TNT Pest Control.
We’re talking about termites and what they eat. Termites will feed on roots, wood products,
bark. A lot of people use bark for landscaping around the home. I recommend not using any
bark around the home, ’cause when it is touching the ground, I have seen termites that’ll…that’ll
come up and eat…eat bark products. Any type of wood product, ranging from pianos to books
to newspapers, boxes. I’ve done a few jobs where, there was a storage unit. It was all
fully concreted with boxes in there, and the termites had worked their way up through the
concrete and was eating all of the boxes and newspapers and books. Any type of cellulose
wood product the termites will…will eat. And, they really like wood products that have
a moisture content in it, they’re really attracted to that. Anything that’s an easy meal for
’em, that’s very high in content and moisture they…they will feed on.
