W.A. STONE TERMITE’S ALTERNATIVES TO FUMIGATION
A SAN DIEGO ORIGINAL
If you look in the phone book for a pest control company you won’t see any flashy, gimcky ads or cartoon faces representing W.A. Stone Termite & Pest Control. However if you live in San Diego county your home is probably sporting an inspection certification tag from W.A. Stone. If you ask your friends who does their pest control you’ll most likely hear the name Stone or W.A. Stone Termite & Pest.
W.A. Stone has been serving San Diego County for nearly 50 years. We are a family owned and operated business and take pride in providing affordable, effective and safe pest control services. W.A. Stone Termite’s Alternatives to Fumigation is one of the oldest San Diego based companies offering non-chemical & limited chemical options in termite and pest control. Even before the green movement, W.A. Stone Termite utilized the most cutting edge alternative treatments saving thousands of homes from the lethal gas process of tenting. Over the years we have been pioneers in alternative treatments. From Power Plant (orange oil ), bioblast (biological nematode), microwave treatments in the 80’s & 90’s to thermal (HeatMaster) treatments, W.A. Stone has mastered them all. While pesticide applications do have a definite benefit to assist in pest control in our living environment, limitations of their use can help sustain the natural balance of beneficial non-target pests. Of course fumigation is also one of the tools in our arsenal but is used sparingly and only provided in the safest manner possible.
Over the past few years W.A. Stone has tailored hybrid pest control techniques which utilize the benefit of pesticide usage for remedial treatments and the use of non-pesticide techniques for maintenance control measures. This process, also known as Integrated Pest Management has been known for many years however with W.A.Stone it has moved to the front lines in termite & pest defense.
Our CEO Mark Tammariello share’s his insight. “It all starts with knowledge & experience. While the large chain companies may offer some of the same techniques, we smaller businesses are pushed to be a step ahead and offer tomorrows solutions today. I have been very fortunate to have the benefit of a great mentor. For 26 years my father-in law Wayne Stone passed to me a great wealth of knowledge from his many years of experience and hard work. This experience combined with my own experience in the pest control industry and building/construction trades have proven to be invaluable in every day operations.”
