The larger the square footage, the tougher it is to rid the space of whatever is inhabiting it. If it’s a group of people, simply ask them to leave; but if it’s a pest known as the termite, asking nicely might not just do the trick, especially in a 4-million-cubic-foot building. Well that’s exactly what Payne Pest Management did.
Using the California Aeration Plan, also known as the CAP, and Vikane gas fumigant, Payne Pest Management took on the feat of trying to fumigate the Coronado Point condominium complex. Fumigation Update covers the process behind this massive project and talks with Payne Pest Management to find out exactly how everything went down.
In the 8-page feature in Fumigation Update, Willie Payne says “damage created by the termites led to fungus damage... [which] created mold,” meaning it was crucial that the problem be addressed at its source – the termites.
The residents of Coronado Point raised concerns about a fumigation of this size and Jason Payne, VP of operations for Payne Pest Management, held a meeting of all the homeowners to address any questions or concerns the residents may have had about how this termite fumigation was going to affect them.
As pictured below, custom covers and tarps were put over the condos to keep everything inside dry and safe. A crew of almost 60 workers completed this job in two days. This was the largest fumigation job done under CAP for Payne Pest Management and the secondary contracting company, Statewide Fumigation.

While fumigations require people to stay clear of their homes for a short amount of time, they are the best option for getting rid of the problem at the source and ensuring that the termites or any other best don’t return.
