As I write this, my home is being consumed by termites. AVOID DAB TERMITE at all costs!!!
I purchased a property on 8/31/2021 that had been previously fumigated by DAB. The work was supposed to have a warranty, and I was supposedly covered as the new owner. I was noticing termite damage around the house, and I told **** that I had seen some winged termites a few months prior, but they had died in a windowsill, and I was not sure what to make of it.
**** came by 2/2/2022 and he was quick to dismiss everything I showed him as old damage. When we encountered a dead swarming termite in the crawl space when showing him some damage I was worried about, he again dismissed it again as probably old. He did not perform an actual inspection, which seems like the natural course of action for a pest company that is coming onsite to investigate client reports of termites. If he had taken me seriously, and done such a professional inspection, I am sure he would have found the substantial activity that is, and was clearly going on.
**** commented that the house had had some work done to it since he had been there last, and that if there are termites, they could have come from the new work after the treatment. He "couldn't be sure" what was new and what was old. This is understandable on some level, but as the current owner, I was not in a position to argue with him about what was added to the property when.
I had a leaking window this last week caused by new, obvious termite damage. I called in another company to look, and they quickly confirmed my house has an infestation and requires fumigation. It should have been investigated by DAB & addressed in Feb. when **** came by.
There is a character limit here, but it is important to note also that **** was one of the rudest contractors I have ever encountered, and hiring contractors has been part of my daily job for 10+years... Specific examples can be found in my other reviews posted online on other sites.
Sir. you purchased this home without a termite inspection by our company, and the person that sold you the house made modifications to the home. Inspection was performed for the owners prior to the individual that sold you the property. You may direct your complaints to the structural pest control board at www.pestboard.ca.gov
