Since 1991, Kilter Termite & Pest Control has operated on the premise that treating termites is a better solution than expensive wood replacement. This obvious conclusion was reached because the founder of Kilter worked for several years as a carpenter, replacing termite damaged wood. He saw first hand the extensive damage created by long-term termite infestation, and improper treatment. Believing that termite companies were not getting the message to the homeowner and that much unneeded fumigation was being done, he formed Kilter as an answer to these problems.
Since 1991, we have expanded our offerings to more than just termites. We can exterminate and control almost any pest: ants, spiders, bees, wasps, rats and mice, fleas, bed bugs, cockroaches, and more!

“We've had an annual contract for over 25 years. I'll always trust my home to Kilter.”- Beth Bermudez
The pest control technician told me that for my own safety, I should leave the house during the treatment. Is that necessary?A:
To ensure that the treatment is being done properly, the homeowner should observe the treatment process. Unless the homeowner is chemically sensitive, there should not be any adverse health problems associated with a treatment done correctly. Ask questions of the pest control technicians. Keep track of how long it takes them to do the job.
My next-door neighbor has termites and is going to have his house treated. I've been told that the termites will attack mine.A:
Termites move randomly through the soil searching for a source of food (wood). They do not have the ability to know exactly where your house is. So, if your next-door neighbor treats his home for termites, your house isn’t automatically the termites’ next lunch. No, your house does not need to be treated; but, if there are active termite infestations in your neighborhood, it is a good idea to have it inspected.
How do I know if I am getting a good inspection?A:
The best thing you can do is to be involved and observant in the inspection process. For example if you request an inspection and the inspector doesn’t inspect obvious areas such as your garage, attic, basement, etc., then you may need to consult an additional company. Don’t be afraid to ask questions.
How long do we have to be out of the house?A:
Fumigation process normally takes 3 days and 2 nights unless there is a holiday or weekends or if special arrangements are made.
