Pacific Coast Termite: No Tents

Pacific Coast Termite: No Tents

100208-pacificcoast01.jpgWhen we first moved to Los Angeles and saw homes wrapped in bright tents of blue or orange, red or yellow, we assumed that it was decoration for some type of party. Later, we heard horror stories of friends forced to empty their refrigerators and pantries and move out for several days while their homes were being tented for termite infestation...

It certainly did not sound healthy for either the home's occupants or the planet (though it did get rid of the termites. But it seems to be the only way. Recently, however, we heard an advertisement for Pacific Coast Termite. They claim that they will treat your home using a high concentrated form of orange citrus oil to combat termites and, even, prevent their reinfestation. Has anyone had any experience with this?
