One of the best lines of defense against termites is a prevention plan. Unlike traditional contractors, our wood pretreatment service division takes steps to prevent future termite damage during the construction of your California home, business or rental property. We use Bora-Care® to pretreat during the “dried-in” phase of construction (when the roof, studs, exterior wall, sheathing, and other framing elements are in place, but before insulation and interior wall coverings such as sheet rock, paneling, etc. are installed). We provide a 2 year warranty on any Bora-Care® pretreatment. 8 reason to choose Bora-Care® :
Research from a 12-year study by the USDA Forest Service and Mississippi State University’s Forest Products Laboratory showed wood treated with Bora-Care® stopped termite attacks and prevented subterranean termites from tubing over treated wood. In addition, tests conducted at Louisiana State University have shown that Bora-Care® applied to concrete surfaces will prevent Formosan termite tubing. Treated wood is also protected against carpenter ants, old house borers, powderpost beetles and decay fungi. Treatments near water are no longer a concern. With soil treatments, there is the concern of chemicals leaching into a nearby water source. When you pretreat the wood and concrete, that’s ALL you treat. Soil termiticides can cause CPVC plumbing pipes to leak. Bora-Care® is the first termiticide listed as chemically compatible with Noveon piping systems. It replaces old-fashioned soil termiticides and has been found to be compatible with the CPVC materials of FlowGuard Gold®, BlazeMaster®, and Corzan® pipe and fittings. FGG/BM® System Compatible indicates that this product has been tested and is monitored on an ongoing basis to assure chemical compatibility.
In addition, Bora-Care® will not corrode metal fasteners, fittings or nails. Toxicity is a rising concern among homeowners. With traditional soil treatments, hundreds of gallons of pesticides are pumped into the ground under and around a home. Bora-Care® is a low odor termiticide that is applied directly to the wood. International building code. Bora-Care® is listed in the International Building Code and the International Residential Code. It meets the sill plate end-cut requirements set by building codes and the American Wood-Preservers’ Association (AWPA M4). More durable wood treatment. Excavation and landscaping do not affect the treatment. Leaky water lines, improper drainage and even the landscaping process can break a soil termiticide barrier, rendering soil pretreatments ineffective by the time the house is complete. With Bora-Care®, you’re treating the wood, and once again, a problem is eliminated.
Drywood Termite Prevention
Great builders leave nothing to chance. Their reputations are on the line if they build with materials that are infested. The system that has been available to them is now here for you. It’s called GUARDIAN. GUARDIAN is the Drywood Termite prevention system that has allowed homeowner to protect the most vulnerable lumber in the building, the attic framing.
WHY IS YOUR ATTIC VULNERABLE?
Drywood Termite swarming season happens every summer. From August to October Drywood Termites alates separate from their colonies in search of new homes. Launching into the sky they catch a breeze up to 4 miles away and ride it to their next home…your attic framing. They fly right through the vents, land on the lumber, and begin their new colony.
After years of exclusive commercial use GUARDIAN is being offered to home owners.
“We wanted to extend the same protection to home owners that roofers and builders have enjoyed for years. It’s really about time.” Co-Founder
For years we have offered preventative services to builders and roofers to control future pests. Now you can take advantage of it as well. Using the latest technology in treatment equipment we place a fine coat of a scientifically engineered borate on the roof sheathing, rafters and blocking, trusses, to protect against pests.
Halo was able to come out same day. Provided options, didn’t rush and took his time explaining the service and what his findings were. Very friendly and professional.

Jeff Ray was professional, courteous, and prompt. He was also compassionate. My tenants were out of town and their daughter was home alone and quite anxious about rodents. Though I had not yet secured a pest control contractor, Jeff offered to come by the house if she had any concerns as he would be in the area for the next two days…that gesture along with his professionalism and willingness to explain were all I needed! Halo did a thorough job and offered good value. Jeff was also most patient with both me and my tenants.
