    Outstanding
    Termite tenting that went off on schedule and with minimal interruption in our lives as we aren't selling or moving. The price was also great.

    Had my home termite tented along with termite wood damage repair two years ago. I was very pleased with the straight forward, honest approach and work with s fair price. This month I had an inspection done before having the house painted. No termites...but a lot of other wood for. This vimosny also repairs wood tot; Led and Diego did a great job. They were predpecrful, cleaned up and made sure I was satisfied. Definitely keeping and sharing their business card.

    Very good experience and Chris Luce was personable. I spoke to a popular commercial company and their prices were much higher. There was some serendipity here. After I chose CA Luce from thumbtack, I read a text from somebody suggesting CA Luce so I knew it was the right decision. Also, I read an article comparing orange oil versus tenting and called the company that wrote the article. They were from Orange County and suggested CA Luce so that makes two times! Chris never heard of them but hey, the word on the street was Luce, lol!

    Fumigation
    C.A. Luce Termite Control was excellent. Showed up on time and communicated the process well. The only complaint I have was more tiles were broken on our roof than expected. Probably should have bought the insurance but thought it was very expensive.

    They are great! Hire them!
    They said what they meant, they meant what they said, they were polite, friendly and professional. The price was great, and the team was great. I would refer them to all of my friends and family. We were so happy with them, that we are scheduling them to come back out and give us a bid on the trim and woodwork we need to have done. Overall great, hassle free experience.

    The Best!
    These guys are great, I've never posted an online review before but wanted to for this company...They were the lowest price by a significant amount, by far the friendliest, most flexible, and professional. Having termites is miserable but it was a lot better working with CA Luce, I highly recommend them!

    I am still waiting to hire Chris since we are going through the process of cleaning up the property prior to tenting. I will say he and his staff have been incredibly responsive and he even came back to examine new subterranean termite damage for us. I really appreciated that. Thank you Chris and Michelle!

    Chris was awesome and caught a lot that our previous termite inspection missed. He explained things clearly and offered us great advice. All we were looking for was an honest inspector and I'm glad we found one :)

    Chris and Michelle, who run the company, are very good, the job was on time and they arranged all the details well. I would have given them 5 stars except the sub contractor who did the work broke some of my irrigation when he needed soil. They did listen to me about plants and Internet connections. They did clean up when they finished. The price was fair and very competitive. I would recommend them.

    I hired Chris for inspection and termite treatment. He was prompt and thorough. He has several years of experience and is an independent, which allows him to keep his overhead low and pass on the savings to the customer. Furthermore, He emphasizes customer service, which was quite evident during the inspection and fumigation stages. Overall, I'm very happy.

    I scheduled a time for an inspection three days in advance & then the night before the inspection appointment they called to try to reschedule the time. When I couldn't meet them at the new time they said they will need to cancel the appointment because she double booked the inspector with a past client that I guess has priority. If they are that flaky up front it is a good thing I'm not hiring them. You would think they would try to make it work even if the inspector has to work a bit later that day. I wouldn't care as much if I didn't need to get the work done asap so the painter can paint the house. Oh well their loss.

    We had our house fumigated with Vikane. We chose Chris from three other bidders. Not only was his price very good but he was always on time and always available for questions. He thoroughly explained the Vikane and what we had to do. The fumigators were also prompt and did not break any tiles or damage any landscaping. If Chris isn't available, his office staff is always very helpful.

    I am an out of state landlord that needed a rental property in San Diego treated for termites. I decided on Chris Luce due to his reviews and price. I found working with his team was very easy and they were great in getting things organized on their end with my tenants. It made the whole process very smooth. We had one item at the end of the process that I was afraid was going to be a problem but, once they saw a photo of it THEORY item, it was fixed right away. I would definitely recommend them for your termite needs.

    Very smooth process. They were a few hundred dollars cheaper than the company we had originally planned to go with. All went according to plan.

Q&A

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
Yes, we are always doing continuing education. Just recently did some consulting for the structural pest control board.
Do you have a standard pricing system for your service? If so, please share the details here.
We can usually beat everyone's prices. We have to do an inspection or measure up. To see what is going on. If you are wanting a fumigation it goes by volume and not sq ft. There are other things to take into account. How bad the Termites are, and the extent of the damages for a repair bid or local treatment.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
BBB accredited.... Reviews...Check out our website. Don't let anyone pressure you.
