Company news | November 4, 2009

CORONA, Calif. - Team Too Termite & Pest Control became the first and only licensed pest control company in the state of California to be awarded a license by The California Department of Pesticide Regulations (CDPR) for a non-chemical method of controlling termites.

Team Too Termite & Pest Control has worked diligently over the past 14 years in the development of their Heat Blast Method investing every resource into the research, training and development of the program. With the acknowledgement by the CDPR and the subsequent licensing of the method by CDPR, Team Too Termite & Pest Control has achieved a milestone in alternative control methods, the company says.

“Receiving this certification licensing by the DPR just goes to show that alternative technologies when applied correctly are extremely effective in eliminating wood destroying pests and organisms,” said Team Too Termite & Pest Control President and CEO William Houtchens.

The licensing process by CDPR involved field evaluations, university research, and practical application data. Team Too Termite & Pest Control began the process of filing for licensing almost two years ago and was very involved in every step of the process to ensure that the representatives from CDPR had a complete understanding of what a true alternative technology could provide to the consumers of California.

Bryan Houtchens, Team Too Termite & Pest Control Vice President and COO added, “There are other companies that have been trying to develop similar methods and technologies, however, most were not willing to place the extreme commitment to time as well as the costs of the research. We have worked very hard for years to make sure that our Heat Blast Method would be a viable alternative for all of our consumers. While others have made drastic mistakes in the application and use of this evolving technology we have taken our steps very carefully, all the while looking at the end result for our industry, A true alternative to the traditional chemical fumigation.”
