Killing Termites With Integrity

Termites are wood-eating insects. These critters have the ability to turn your house into their own grand banquet feast. The National Pest Management Association (NPMA) reports that every year, termites cause over $5 billion in property damage. Who should you turn to if you think you think your house may be infested?

In 2014, Specialty Products Consultants, LLC reported that there were over 19,000 companies in the industry (A Strategic Analysis of the U.S. Structural Pest Control Industry – 2014). We reviewed Grand Oaks Termite Control, a business that offers inspection and treatments. They were established in 2013 and service the Glendora, San Dimas, La Verne, and Pasadena region.

Grand Oaks Termite Control conducts thorough and detailed termite inspection in San Dimas. NPMA reports that pests “contaminate food, as well as kitchen equipment and other surfaces. Pests also infest food items and stored products including grains and dry goods.”

Grand Oaks promises competitive termite inspection and treatment costs. They also offer excellent customer service, as demonstrated by their stellar ratings and reviews on Yelp. One reviewer mentioned that Grand Oaks beat out other providers on price. In addition, she states that the company was an excellent communicator throughout the entire process.

The company offers different types of treatments depending on the severity of the infestation. They offer localize and full perimeter treatments for subterranean infestations. According to NPMA, subterranean termites eat non-stop, and are therefore the most destructive species of termite in the country.

Grand Oaks offers a regular inspection program, which allows home owners to proactively take preventative measures against possible termite infestation and subsequent damage.

We always look to review companies who are known to provide accurate information and full transparency in order to act in best interest of their customers. We believe that professional integrity includes not taking advantage of worrisome situations just for the sake of profit. In the case of exterminator services, it is very difficult for the average home owner to understand the extent of the problem. Therefore, they are completely reliant on the information provided to them by the inspector. In these situations, there is no way to know if the company is giving a home owner exaggerated claims about the inspection in order to take advantage of their concern and willingness to save their house.

However, Grand Oaks boasts a strong reputation of honesty and track record of service. The owner started the company after seeing too many instances of poor industry practices. One reviewer mentions how worried she was about her entire home being infested. Luckily, Grand Oaks determined that to not be the case and was able provided a fair quote. Moreover, they were able to treat the affected area in an hour.

The Termite Terminator

Reporter, Terry Barnes, at the Sunnyville Times adjusted his spectacles and stared at the wall. “Just as I suspected,” he said, “termites!” He took a sip of his Mocha Latte with skim.

“So, I have termites?” the coffee shop owner, Paul, said with a look of terror on his face.

“I honestly have no idea, I’m not an inspector,” Terry replied. “I am, however, a reporter! You may have heard of me, Terry Barnes.” He extended his hand.

The coffee shop owner blinked at Terry dumbfound, “but you just said I have termites?”

“Well yes, of course! Everyone has termites! That’s why I’m here. I’m writing an article about it. It may in fact be the most hard-hitting story Sunnyville has ever seen! In fact, I’m meeting Tony Johnson here. You may have heard of his company Sunny Pest Control. They have been cleaning up the city, one business at a time! They are local heroes to most. I’m sure they can help you with your termite problem,” Terry replied. “You’ll want to check out their website, they are seriously the best pest control guys in the business.”

“Can you stop saying I have termites so loudly?” Paul said rolling his eyes, “You have no idea if I have termites, man.”

Hmph. Terry sighed. “Hi, Mr. Barnes?” a young lady approached Terry with her hand extended.

“No autographs please. I am waiting for a very important person to arrive.” Terry replied, taking another sip of his coffee and glancing at the door.

“Um, yes but Mr. Barnes,” she continued but Terry cut her off.

“Okay fine! One autograph but that’s all. What should I sign,” he looked around in search of a pen.

Paul chuckled lightly as he noticed the name on the side of her coffee cup. Terry noticed, “What’s so funny? You won’t be laughing when I advise Tony Johnson not to help you with your termite problem!”

Paul started laughing harder. “So, this Tony person is really that good then? They can solve all of my insect infestation problems?”

“Well, yes his company is the absolute best. Typically, I would be mad that he was so late but because this is such a VIP interview I’m not even going to complain. I mean it is completely rude to be this late. My time is money, seeing as I am Sunnyville’s most famous reporter. I’m sure Mr. Johnson has an excellent reason for being so late though,” Terry babbled on, finally locating a pen. “So, what should I sign darling? Your napkin? Your shirt? What?”

“Umm Mr. Barnes,” she started, but Terry cut her off again. “Really doll I’ve got a VIP about to walk through that door any minute now, I don’t have all day. Here…” he trailed off reaching for the sleeve of her shirt.

“Mr. Barnes!” she said shocked. Paul was laughing so hard he was crying now.

Terry shot Paul a dirty look. “What? I thought you wanted an autograph?”

She rolled her eyes at both Terry and Paul. “Mr. Barnes, I am Tony the owner of Sunny Pest Control. I’m here to be interviewed.”

Terry’s mouth dropped open. Paul continued to laugh, “He’s speechless, I bet that’s a first!”

“Haha,” Tony let out a little laugh, “Okay, okay, but seriously Paul, we should really talk about getting you set up with some termite control.”

Paul stopped laughing and his face dropped, “Wait, what?”

“Ya, you’ve got termites. You can find me here.”
