Most lending organizations don’t want to loan on a property unless they are assured that the property doesn’t have any “Wood Destroying Organism” that threaten its structural integrity.
These infamous “Section One” items must be eliminated in most transactions before a home can go through escrow and fortunately, Unipest is a full-service Escrow Inspection, treatments, and construction repair company.
We work with all the local companies, United America Realty, HSB Realty, Realty Executives, Realty One, Re-Max, Keller Williams, etc. and have an efficient pipeline for termite identification, elimination, and certification.
Our State-Certified Termite and WDO Inspectors will come to your house, identify what types of termites, dry rot, fungus, or section one items are present and prepare a plan for their speedy removal or remedy so you can get your “clearance” and move through escrow…generally within less than a week.
You don’t have to go far to find customers, real estate agents, and escrow professionals who would recommend our services.
As Santa Clarita’s only Factory Certified XT-2000 Orange Oil company we can give you a clearance without tenants having to leave the home, and as a strategic partner with Vikane Gas we can tent the home completely if it is vacant or if your unique escrow situation demands it. Either way, if you are a realtor looking for a termite inspection partner or a homeowner looking to list soon, call us immediately at 661-284-7575 for a free inspection.
Birds are beautiful and they occupy a very important niche in the local ecosystem of Santa Clarita, but….64 different diseases! Can you believe it!?
Pigeons carry 64 different diseases! So gross! And its not just pigeons causing problems. Non pest species of birds like swallows will cause significant amounts of property damage as they nest during the summers and raise their young and you cannot remove them until they leave on their own so preventing them from nesting on your property and pooping everywhere is serious business.
Fortunately, Eco Friendly pigeon and bird control options for your home in Santa Clarita are plentiful at Unipest. We Santa Clarita’s only “Bird Barrier Certified” company and have helped hundreds of homeowners and homeowner associations keep the pigeons, starlings, and other pest birds away using organic, eco-friendly, and EPA approved products and methods.
If the birds are getting a little “Alfred Hitchcock” on you, call us today and we will give you a free inspection.
Bees are serious business. Just their buzzing sound is enough to make a grown man wince in fear. And for good reason. Depending on the stats and the year, bees, especially “Killer” Africanized Bees rank in the top 3 of North Americas most dangerous animals. THOUSANDS of people, pets, and livestock have died or been injured from stepping into the wrong territory of an Africanized beehive.
Fortunately, eco-friendly beehive removal options are our specialty. Whether it’s a live removal of a new European Honeybee Hive or the extermination of an Africanized Beehive, Unipest has the tools and talent to help you stay safe.
Because about 80-90% of the feral hives in the Santa Clarita valley are Africanized, let’s talk a little bit about removing an Africanized beehive. As you can see in the videos below, there is a lot more to eco-friendly beehive removal than just showing up and spraying or removing the hive.
First you must identify where the hive material is. If you smoke a hive with pine needle smoke, it may calm down temporarily. If you spray an aggressive hive with pesticide, it may kill the adults and calm down in activity for a couple of days, but unless you remove the hive material itself, the honey on the hive material will protect the queen and the young from exterior smoke and pesticides and when the new young reaches adulthood in a week, the hive will return just as strong and as vibrant as it was the week before. So… the name of the game is hive removal and locating the exact area the hive is in.
To do this we have all kinds of tools at our disposal. Often times with a simple visual inspection or with a visual scope we can identify where a hive is. If the hive is behind a wall, thermal imaging scopes are an effective way to pinpoint where a hive is. Once locates, we will cut the stucco or the drywall around the hive, remove it, and then patch the area back together so you couldn’t even tell we were there! It is really that simple!
If you suspect your Santa Clarita home has bees, call us today for a free beehive removal inspection at 661-284-7575.
