Termites. It's a word that inspires great anxiety in homeowners and business owners as well as real estate buyers and sellers.

Glen Fowler has been helping people deal with the dreaded termite as well as other pests for 32 years, and his family-owned and operated Fowler Pest Control & Termites, which he started 17 years ago in Fallbrook, has expanded from simply serving the "Friendly Village" to assisting customers throughout San Diego County, Riverside County and southern Orange County.

Businesses that grow like Fowler's must be doing something right.

"The key to the success of our company is the people that work for us," said Fowler, who operates Fowler Pest Control with the help of wife Karen (administration), daughters Molly (office management, termite division) and Maggi (office management, pest division), son Mike (supervisor of crews, inspector), and brother-in-law Chuck (inspector).

Fowler Pest Control has 18 employees – some have been with Fowler for 15 years – and a fleet of service vehicles.

"We have really good people, really good guys who know how to treat the customer right," said Fowler, who added that all of his technicians are licensed. "And one of the things we're proud of is we have a very intensive training program, and that's in addition to the annual training that the state requires."

Termites can do extensive damage and that is why Fowler encourages homeowners to take advantage of his offer for a free inspection.

"We believe the due diligence of owning a house is having your house inspected regularly, whether it be for pests or termites," said Fowler. "If you're not selling the house, we don't charge. We'll come out and inspect your house and keep an eye on it.

"It will save you thousands of dollars if you do that regularly," continued Fowler. "If you wait until you start having a problem, and then find out it's a serious problem, it's a lot worse financially. So it's good to have regular inspections."

Fowler said his company also gives free estimates pertaining to rodent control.

"We'll come out and do a free assessment for squirrels and gofers," said Fowler. "We'll check the property out and see what you need. Not everybody needs huge treatments. Sometimes it's one or two treatments and you have it under control."

Fowler noted that rodents have been a big issue this year.

"Our rodent calls – between squirrels, gofers and rats and mice – are up 38 percent this year," said Fowler.

Fowler said his team can help homeowners with the problem of rodents in attics.

"We do a lot of rodent clean up in attics," said Fowler. "We pull out insulation and sanitize and put in new insulation."

Fowler said the heavy winter rains and "the weird weather pattern we've been having" has resulted in some insects coming out earlier than usual.

"Insects usually come out in a pattern, but there's no pattern to it anymore," said Fowler. "It's just constant. Usually we don't start getting ant calls until June, July, August, and we've had them all year. They're non-stop. Fleas are normally August, September – when it starts getting really hot – but we've already gotten flea calls, which is a little bit on the unusual side."

In addition to providing insect and rodent control services for residential properties, Fowler Pest Control & Termites services business and commercial facilities.

"We even work on cell towers," said Fowler. "We do a lot of bee work on cell towers for Sprint and T-Mobile. We do hospitals. Pretty much you name it, and we do it."
