Last month, we wrote about how Knockout Pest Control offers termite inspections in Murrieta and Temecula. We would be remiss if we didn’t mention that we also do termite inspections in Fallbrook. In fact, our shop is located right in between Temecula and Fallbrook (in Rainbow), making it easy to service the residents of Fallbrook as well as those in the Temecula Valley.
As you know if you live in Fallbrook, it is a unique and special community. Knockout’s owner, Chase, grew up in Fallbrook, and several of our technicians still live there. The city has many beautiful homes and rural properties that we service regularly as part of a pest control plan, but we also work with a fair amount of Fallbrook homeowners for termite inspections.
Fallbrook has a good amount of older homes within its borders. Unlike newer homes with additions like Alumawood patio covers and composite decks, older homes tend to have more natural wood structures, like wood decks, gazebos, patio covers, and more. While these structures are beautiful, they are also prime real estate for termites. In addition, the common types of termites in Fallbrook also love dead trees, fallen tree branches, tree stumps, and piles of chopped wood. Fallbrook homes that have any of these nearby (as many rural Fallbrook properties do) are also more susceptible to termites.
If you live in Fallbrook and haven’t had a termite inspection in a while, don’t put it off much longer. So many people we work with only have termite inspections done when they buy their house, when they sell their house, or when they see evidence of termite activity. Most people don’t think to get regular termite inspections, but it is definitely something you should do to protect your home.
If left unchecked, termites can do a huge amount of damage. If a large infestation is discovered, not only will you have to have your Fallbrook home tented for termites to get rid of the termites, but you will also have to repair the damage that was done—particularly if it was structural damage. However, if you find termites early by having a regular termite inspection done at your Fallbrook home, you may find them before they have the chance to do any damage, and you may be able to eliminate them with a less expensive and less invasive spot treatment. At Knockout, we offer both orange oil and heat treatments for localized termite colonies (termites that are confined to one area in the home).
Don’t put off having a termite inspection done on your Fallbrook home! It’s one of those home maintenance tasks that can definitely pay off if termites are discovered early. Even if we don’t find any termites during our inspection, just having it done can give you peace of mind, knowing that your home is free from termites.
