How does the Quarterly plan work?A:
On your first visit we will treat the interior and exterior of your home, eliminating most pests you have in and around your home. During that initial visit we also create a barrier around your home. This will allow the treatment to work on all the pests trapped inside the barrier and stop any new pests from getting in. After that initial visit we will come out quarterly to maintain the barrier around your home. We normally only need to treat the interior once per year and the exterior barrier every 3 months. You may see an uptick in activity the first few days after each treatment as the pests try to get away but after a week you should be pest free. If you need us, call us as our service calls are free.
There are a million pest control companies, why should we choose Kilter?A:
We are always one of the top-rated companies in the service industry plus we have over 30 years of experience solving Southern CA’s unique pest control issues. Our low impact products and services are highly effective and are available at great prices, which is very important these days. Our commitment to customer care and fast service is why we are one of the highest rated and fastest growing pest control companies in the USA.

What pests are covered under a standard residential pest control service?A:
Ants, spiders, silverfish, earwigs, beetles, stink bugs, crickets, centipedes/millipedes plus a few more. We also treat roaches, fleas, bedbugs, termite, rodents and more but a few of those may require a free inspection.
Is Kilter licensed and insured?A:
Yes, our company and all technicians are licensed and insured in CA.
How much does it cost?A:
Generally, our standard residential pest control is $95 every 3 months with an annual agreement, we also offer a one time pest blast for $199 and bees, roaches, fleas and bed bugs require a free pest inspection. If your home is over 4000 sq feet there may be a small upcharge.
How do I protect my family and home from termite and rot damage?A:
The most important step is to contact a pest control professional in your area for a complete inspection. Complete the recommendations and then ask the company for an extendable warranty.
What is the difference between tenting a house for termites and other treatments?A:
Fumigation, also known as tenting, is one of the treatment options for dealing with Drywood termites. Localized “spot” treatment controls only the Drywood termite activity in the specific area and often involves drilling into infested areas. Drywood termite activity in the area is treated and a warranty for untreated areas may also be available. Ask you Kilter Representative for details. Keep in mind that control methods for Drywood termites do not control subterranean termites.
I have active termites, how much damage can they do?A:
Subterranean termites would not be expected to create significant damage in a short period of time, but can cause severe damage over an extended period of time if left untreated. Kilter recommends you take action as soon as possible to begin the control process.
When are termites most common?A:
Once a colony is established, termites are a year-round problem. However, there is an increase in colony expansion activity during warm weather.
Can I treat my house for termites myself?A:
Legally yes, but total gallons of solution required to properly treat an average size structure can easily be 200, 300, or even 400 gallons. Unless you have the proper equipment, properly treating your home could be difficult and time consuming. In addition, the termiticides available to the homeowner for termite treatments are limited, and if bought retail, they may be expensive. Therefore, unless you are experienced and have the proper equipment, it is best to let a pest management professional treat the structure.
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. Kilter’s Stay in Your Home termite treatment requires no leaving your home at all.
