Antac Pest Control Fumigates Costco for Termites

On December 22, 2012, Antac Pest Control fumigated Costco's Optical Lab, which may be considered one of the the largest fumigations in San Diego County history.

The size of the job was 4,770,000 cubic feet. To put this into perspective, imagine an average 2500 square foot home. This job would equate to putting around 160 of those homes under a single tent.

The crew began on December 21, preparing the site. The next morning, over 30 employees arrived to begin placing tarps over the gigantic structure. All monitoring devices and monitoring lines were placed meticulously to allow for a proper extermination of the termite infestation. At around 4:00pm, the entire structure was covered and Vikane Gas had been released into the structure.

All of the employees were pretty excited to be treated to Phil's BBQ after the job was complete. "If you have to work on a Saturday, you might as well make the event a fun-filled team event with a reward at the end.", said Bill Lawson, manager of the fumigation crew.

The next day, December 23, 2012, gas-level monitors showed that everything was perfect. There was no leaking that occurred over night, so ventilation systems were opened so the structure could begin ventilating itself.

Finally, on December 24, 2012 (Christmas Eve), our crew came back out late in the afternoon to test gas levels. After the readings on our monitoring devices showed that the gas had dissipated from the structure, the nearly 400 employees were ready to get back to work. Tarps were removed and Costco was on its way back to providing eyeglasses and lenses for half of the United States.

"This job could not have gone more perfectly.", said Josh Long, Owner at Antac Pest Control.
