I want to get Termite inspection for house which is in Escrow process. Initially we have miscommunication/understanding about the Scheduling. After we schedule one more time everything went smooth. Gilbert is very good at looking all the areas in the house especially which is not easily accessible. Also he discovered the termite which previous termite company could not able. He (First time Home Buyer) provided me small small tip which is very useful. Note -: I pay him for inspection even though i received free inspection offer from other company. It is worth of spending the money rather chasing free stuff.

Guillermo Castro of Castro Termite & Pest Control came out within the next day after being contacted for a Re-finance Termite Inspection. He performed a thorough inspection of my home including a comprehensive survey of the attic during a very warm afternoon. I was very impressed with his knowledge of termite infestation and how to locate any damage. Fortunately my home did not have any evidence of termites. After the completion of the inspection I mentioned that I had a problem with rodents running around between my house and a neighbor's. He came out the next day on his day off to seal up any entry points to my home and lay traps. His excellent customer service, pleasant demeanor and dedication to his craft have earned my highest marks for a professional. I highly recommend him for any pest problem you may have!

Very professional in the follow-up termite inspection report which I received by email just a few hours after the inspection. All details and options for services that we discussed were spelled out clearly. A scheduled date for services has been set up but not yet completed so I can't comment on that.

Love working with Rat Pact - they were able to accommodate my schedule, educated me on what needed to be done to get rid of my rodent problem, gave me a great estimate, started the exclusion and set traps the very next day and have been back to check the traps they set. All of the Rat Pact guys were on-time, professional, courteous and hard working. I am confident that rodents won't be keeping me awake at night anymore... Thanks Rat Pact!

We offer a full walk through home inspection, starting from the ground all the way up into the attic (yes, we actually get into the attic, not just stand on a ladder and look around). We test and monitor the HVAC system/s, electrical outlets, lights, main panel, plumbing drains, water pressures, overall structure of the home, and roof condition. We also do temperature readings around windows and doors for draft or un-insulated areas. We look for mold and areas of leaking as well.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How do you get rid of termites?

The best way to get rid of termites is to act fast. Termites are a problem that will only get worse — and no matter how much you want them to, they usually don’t magically move out on their own. There are three main types of termites: drywood, dampwood and subterranean. Drywood and dampwood termites sneak through cracks in your exterior paint, nail holes, and gaps near windows and other openings and begin to eat through your wood. Subterranean termites enter your house from the ground up by creating mud tunnels. In all cases, they survive by eating the wood of your house. The type of termites you have can steer the treatment plan.

Methods of termite extermination include fumigation, use of pesticides, and use of natural elements that are poisonous to the bugs. The extent of your termite infestation will help determine the treatment method. If you have drywood or dampwood termites that have infiltrated all aspects of the wood in your home, the pest control pro may recommend enclosing the whole house in a tent and gassing the termites via fumigation. If you have subterranean termites, often the entire footprint of the home must be treated by drilling liquid treatments into the slab or foundation of the home to exterminate the colonies. In any case, once you see signs of termites, it’s time to take action and call a pest pro.  

What are the signs of termites in your home?

When you see signs of termites in your home, call a trusted pest control professional as soon as possible to handle the situation. Termites feed on wood, meaning they eat through the wood that makes up the frame, floors and other components of your house. Most people don’t know they have termites until they discover the damage done, because termites remain hidden underground or inside the wood they are eating. Keep on the lookout for these signs of termites:

  • Water bubbles in your interior or exterior paint: If you poke at what look like paint bubbles and find termite droppings inside, it’s a sign of termite infestation.
  • Frass: This is a fancy term for termite poop. Keep your eyes peeled for what look like six-sided salt and pepper droppings.
  • Mud tubes: Subterranean termites move between their earth home and your house by building mud tunnels. Mud tubes under or along the side of your house or foundation are a sure sign of a termite infestation.  
  • Wings or swarming near your home: As a new colony is looking for a home, they fly (swarm), then shed their wings and burrow into nearby wood.
  • Softening of wood or hollowed-out wood: Termites don’t like paint, lacquer varnish or other wood finishes, so they’ll eat inside the wood and leave the exterior finish like a shell.

Are termites harmful to humans?

Termites are harmful to humans in that they can eat a home from the inside out. But unlike some other insects, termites don’t carry infection, nor do they bite or feed off people like parasitic bedbugs. So while they’re not harmful to your health, they can be extremely harmful to your wallet. The EPA reports that every year termites cause billions of dollars of structural damage in the United States. Immediate action and treatment is the best approach if you see signs of termites. The national average cost for an exterminator ranges from $250 to $400, but costs may be higher if you have a whole house infestation on your hands. Here are a few examples of average cost:

  • Standard liquid treatment of subterranean termites: $3-$4 per linear foot. An extermination company may have a minimum service fee, such as $150, to come out and provide treatment, no matter how small the space.
  • Liquid treatment of subterranean termites including foaming and drilling into concrete slabs: $4-$5 per linear foot.
  • Liquid treatment of a 2,000-square-foot home for subterranean termites: approximately $400.
  • Fumigation treatment of drywood termites: $1,200-$1,500 for a 30,000- to 35,000-cubic-foot home. Pros measure fumigation costs in cubic feet. Fumigation costs can also be affected by the number of stories in your home.
