TERMITE SERVICES, subterranean. Background: single family home, Redondo Beach (borders of Manhattan and Hermosa Beach). Very old home (built in 1957). I witnessed first hand evidence of swarming termites, settling into various areas of front yard. Killed as many as I could, but futile as there were many wings visible on the ground. Did an internet search, somehow found my way to Thumbtack.com. Made a request and William/Ankor was the first to respond. He provided a free estimate with a very thorough inspection: checked attic crawlspace, crawlspace under home, various rooms he could access with my supervision, the eaves of the home, and the perimeter of the home. I mentioned why I needed termite services and he confirmed (as I had already) that wings were visible, a clear evidence of sub termites. He however, did not find any obvious signs of termites inside of the home and gave me a few, but all reasonable options for treatment. I did not want the inconvenience of tenting as we had that done back in 2009. He stated it wouldn't be necessary based on what he could see (this was refreshingly unexpected as I'm used to service people constantly trying to up-sell or claim that tenting is the ONLY way.) I even called a company that is known for their radio commercials that claims orange oil is the best/safest, and had them complete a free inspection/estimate. Their inspector was dressed far too nicely to crawl in any crawlspace, and guess what, he didn't. He didn't do nearly the thorough inspection that William offered and he was VERY QUICK to say that I had termites without seeing nearly as much of my home. I even had to ask him how he knew I had termites based on how little he "inspected." That company also wanted almost $3000.00 for their services. Anyway, I asked William if he was willing to return to confirm or refute the other company's assessment, William did, and confirmed yet again that he didn't see any immediate need to treat the home, only the yard/exterior. I don't know too many service people that say you do NOT need services - otherwise how do they make a living? Well William is the type of service person that I think everyone hopes for/dreams of. He's on time (that's practically unheard of), he communicates with you directly about when he's on the way, he responds quickly, he's presentable but dressed appropriately for the nature of his work. He's thorough, personable, and seems very reasonable. I spent less than $700 for direct ground treatment around my home, including underneath (it's a raised foundation) and in the known areas of infestation in my yard. Quite reasonable as he was here for 4.5 hours). I have never felt rushed when William is answering my questions or that he rushes the job. He is knowledgeable, professional, and has integrity for someone in his line of work. I plan to use William again for his rodent control services, and additional termite control at another property.
