Microwave Treat Short Stories – # 2 Drywoods at Mega Apartment complex

Mega apartment complex saves money and life’s – thanks to microwave treatment

During June swarming season somewhere in Los Angeles County Ca., Checked exterior of a 500 unit mega two story apartment complex. Drywood termites identified at 215 exterior unit locations. Majority of areas located at first and second story balcony wood siding and framing.

Total area fume estimate was 6 million cubic foot at a cost of half a million dollars, not to mention the associations cost to house tenants elsewhere during the fumigation process. In lieu of fumigation, the apartment owners association was also given a quote of $80,000 for microwave treatment of all areas of dry wood termite evidence visually and non visually apparent, a two year complete termite treatment warranty and a year to year termite control service policy thereafter at the annual starting cost of $10,000.00.

The association went with the microwave termite treatment and it was performed without any problems in 10 working days total with a crew of two and only one microwave treatment generator.

The conclusion of this large treatment was no deaths or illnesses associated with poison gas treatments, happy tenants that did not need to leave their apartments overnight or worry about contaminated food products after treatment and an overly happy apartment association who now regularly refer other commercial accounts.  

This job grossed a considerable company profit of which continues to this date to come in annually from the ongoing control service policy. A total of one to two days a year and sometimes three are spent by a crew of two servicing the entire mega property under the control agreement.

Microwave termite treatment is truly a life saving, money making, safe alternative to multi unit commercial whole structure poison gas fumigation.
