      Bags will be delivered to your doorstep two weeks before your fumigation. We cannot take keys any sooner than the morning of the fumigation. We recommend leaving your key in a lockbox and providing us with a code. The form can be filled out by completing the part of this website titled “When is my unit being Fumigated?” and shortly after receive an email with more information.

      There is no need to cover furniture, clothing, pictures & cabinets prior to fumigation. There is also no need to wash anything after the fumigation. Pleas be sure to attend one of the scheduled meetings listed above in this website.

    Hi, I am a tenant here in the Orangetree Condos. The paperwork mentions this 4-day evacuation is “at the homeowner’s expense” Therefore my question is, are you in communication with the homeowner as well regarding this? How am I supposed to cover the expenses of being displaced from my home?

    • Ozzie Camacho

      Hey Shannon. Your community’s management is notifying all off-site owners. Coordinating expenses for accommodation. We suggest reminding your landlord anyway incase they missed the mailer.

    I have a trunk, large basket and small wooden chest filled with holiday ornaments and notebooks, maps and other such items. Do I need to remove all decor that is on them and open their lids so you can inspect them?

    And do I need to leave all drawers and cabinet and closet doors open?

    Reply

      You don’t need to remove those items from the trunk. We do recommend you leave the lid ajar for easier ventilation. We do recommend you also leave drawers and cabinets open.

    Hello, I’m unable to attend any of the webinars. Is there a recording available?

    Reply
  12. LWC

    It was said in the webinar that we don’t have to remove plants, just water them well. But the PandaDoc says we have to. Which is true?

    Also, whose choice was it to do this fumigation over the weekend? If you don’t work Sundays, why couldn’t this be done during the week therefore the entire process would be only 3 days, 2 nights instead of 4/3?

    Where are we supposed to tell you about where the key will be left? The webinar said it would be asked on the PandaDoc, but I did not see it there. Is it possible to wait until you show up Friday morning to hand someone the key?

    Reply
    • Ozzie Camacho

      We recommend that you remove plants as you wish. However, it is not a requirement. The fumigation dates is dependent on several factors such as the availability of the fumigators, our own availability to coordinate between the fumigators and all the affected residents, and the availability of the gas company to dispatch the necessary amount of technicians to service such a large community. As far as submitting your key, you will receive a separate email after your your form (the PandaDoc) has been completed. That email will walk you through the instructions for providing a key.

    Not to sure about the patio area. I can leave my items on the patio correct? But do I have to move them away from the wall? Our patio has an overhang and I am assuming the tent just hangs over the end of the roof/overhang?
    Also and more important, we DO NOT have keys for the back patios. they are sliding glass doors and screens. I cannot leave you a key, therefore.
    I do not wish to leave my sliding door unlocked for the 4 days.
    Is the front door keys sufficient for you to enter?
    Also I have a tall dresser in my closet. I will leave the drawers open, but I do not have to take out do I? There is plenty of access for spraying or whatever it is you are doing?
    Also, boxes under the bed have to be removed, uncovered, open? Please explain completely. I am not that young and healthy and this is quite a difficult thing to do. Thank you for your Help…

    • Ozzie Camacho

      We are expecting to cover the entire patio and balcony. If you choose to remove your plants, they are best left as far away from the building as you can get them. The ideal spot would be an empty parking space.

      We only need front door keys. Your dresser can stay in the closet. Your boxes under the bed can also stay where they are.

    Hi, I have a few questions:

    2. I have boxes of Glucerna Shake that are unopened and individually sealed, but they are in plastic bottles..do they need to be bagged/removed?
    3. Shoud opened glass bottles such as red wine vinegar, olive oil be bagged? What about if they are opened plastic bottles such as coconut oil or or peanut butter should they be bagged?
    4. I understand unopened glass bottles or unopened cans do not need to be bagged, but what about unopened food that are in plastics such as soda in plastic bottles or apple/orange juice in plastic bottles?
    5. I have multiple cardboard boxes and plastic storage containers I used to store holiday items and other items, do they need to be opened?
    Thank you!

    Reply
    • Ozzie Camacho

      Hey J. The confirmation should be enough for your form submission. We can pinpoint down to your unit to double check if you’d like. Glucerna shakes are fine to leave out as long as they are factory sealed. Any other containers that have been opened should be double bags using only the Nylofume bags we provide. Unopened glass containers can stay as is. Same for factory sealed canned goods. Cardboard boxes and other storage boxes do not need to be emptied out.

    Question 2: Also, how about the smoke detectors? they are on the whole time , just so you know. do I need to do anything about the smoke detectors in the house?

    Question 3: for the gas shutdown, do residents need to contact gas company to shut down on our own??

    I am a longtime homeowner and resident of Orange Tree Condominiums. I don’t remember the last termite fumigation to be this complicated: just vacate for four days and nights. There was no requirement to leave a spare key for the fumigator to access all my rooms. Isn’t that an invasion of privacy? I certainly feel like it is. I won’t have anything like jewelry (which I don’t own anyway), but I can’t take everything with me. And I’m not going to leave my spare under the mat or in the water heater closet: I need to hand the key directly to the Project Manager (who I don’t know) or whoever will be walking around my condo investigating after fumigation. It’s too late now, but can’t the next fumigation use that orange-flavored gas that’s safe around humans but still toxic to termites? This gas can’t possibly be much good if we need to have fumigation redone every ten years or so.

    Reply
    • Ozzie Camacho

      hey Michael. Fumigation regulations have changed over the years. The preparation process we have communicated to you is the same process you’d have to follow regardless of the company. Fumigations may also differ depending on the target pest and the product being used. You also have the option of securing your key in a lockbox if you’d rather not leave it under the mat. There are no options for flavors of fumigant as any fumigant used is potentially harmful for humans. It is not safe for humans to be around which is why you are required to vacate accordingly. Fumigation for termites is also not a preventative treatment.

    We have factory sealed juice boxes and protein shakes, also our other food item are stored in sealed hard plastic containers already (due to a mouse issue prior) Do we have to bag these items. Also if food is still in its original factory sealed containers unopened in the fridge and freezer, do they have to be bagged. I understood it to only mean “opened uncovered ” food items. How do I get additional bags? I assume, our safe does not need to be open

    Reply
    • Ozzie Camacho

      Hey Johnny. Nylofume bags are the only containers allowed for food storage when conducting a fumigation. Only glass containers and metal cans can stay as is if they are still facotry sealed. All other items like juice boxes and bags of dry goods must be stored in Nylofume bags. The safe does need to be opened and inspected prior to fumigation. Please email us at fumigations@accuratetermitecontrol.com to coordinate the purchase of additional bags and the inspections of your safe.

    hi Ozzie, I have a few more question please. so shall I understand that as long as they are food or anything that are eatable(like medicine etc), they all need to be bagged EXCEPT water ( even they are open bottle water in the refrigerator)? I have two big packs of bottled water in my kitchen as well.

    and you said that dishes/plates are all good and no need to be bagged, so how about the toothpastes? no need to be bagged (as long as they are not eatable)??

    How the fumigation works as the gas is very harmful? why dishes/plates don’t need to be bagged and even washed after the fumigation as we will use them to put the food on, while the food needs to be bagged?

    Reply
    • Ozzie Camacho

      Hi August. Your first paragraph is correct. Edibles must be double bagged using only the Nyloume bags we have provided with the exception of water and ice. All other items including hygiene and cosmetics do not need to be double bagged as the gas does not leave a residual. Double bagging your food is a law set in place as an added safety measure.

    Hi there. I have a few more questions please. so shall I understand that all food and eatable items need to be bagged EXCEPT water? i have open water bottles in the refridge, and also two big packs of bottled water in the kitchen, are they safe leaving there without bagging? also how about toothpaste? I know it’s not eatable, but they are put into the mouth, so I am not quite sure this one.

    so when we are bagging the food, what kind of seal is required? robber band is ok? taping is ok? but no matter whether robber band or taping, it will still have some gas that air can get in. is it really safe for food being bagged just like that?

    can Microwave door remain close?

    Reply
    • Ozzie Camacho

      Hi August. Correct. Water does not need to be double-bagged regardless of where it is. Toothpaste is not considered edible and does not need to be bagged. Rubber bands are okay to be used for sealing the bags. Click on the link below to view the bagging instructions video.

    I received an email last night from Accurate saying that the notice posted on our door recently regarding the the OFN form is due September 20th at 5pm and not Aug 23. See below.

    “We just wanted to clarify that the notice letter states that your Occupant’s Fumigation Notice form is due August 23rd. Please note that the date is incorrect. Your actual due date is September 20th at 5pm.”

    My building is being fumigated 16-19 but you want the form on the 20th? Is this email ‘Notice Letter Due Date Correction’ still incorrect? I certainly hope you have not changed dates for Building 39 to be fumigated….?

    Hello,

    I would like piece of mind and I will be putting all my clothes from my closet, stuffed animals, and picture frames from the wall onto my bed and I’ll cover it up with a plastic sheet.

    Please let me know if this could be a possible inconvenience.

    Reply
    • Ozzie Camacho

      Hi Nicole. It would be best to NOT put plastic covering over your items if they are not food items. Doing so would make it difficult to ventilate the fumigant out of your unit when it comes time to ventilate the building. The best thing you can do with all your clothes, stuffed animals, and picture frames from the wall is to leave them exactly where they are.

      Hi Isa. Keys will be collected no earlier than the morning of your fumigation. Please do not bring your key to any office before then. If you have already submitted your Occupant’s Fumigation Notice form, you should have been sent a follow up link that will give you options for key arrangements. As far as what to leave in the apartment, please review one of the recorded webinars found on this site or you can attend an upcoming live webinar. Those details are covered extensively in either.

    1. What is the exact dose of Vikane you are planning to use (in terms of oz-h, or 1x, etc)?
    2. Based on the disclaimer form, is it correct that the building will be covered and Vikane fumigant will be introduced on the very first day?
    3. How many hours or days will Vikane be present in our building?
    4. How do you ensure that Vikane has dropped to a safe level for us to enter back into the building? Do you use any equipment to check the level of Vikane in the building to confirm it safe for us to enter back into the building?
    5. Will the fridge or freezer need to be turned off?
    6. Would you need us to be away for additional days, if there is just normal rain during that weekend? Just wondering how bad it needs to be in terms of rain/wind in order to trigger the delay.
    7. Do we need to alert the Irvine Police department? Not sure if they will stop by more frequently to check on our homes.

The exact dosage can only be determined on the morning of the fumigation as it is dependent on wind speed, ground temperature, size of the building, soil conditions, as well as several other factors for which we cannot immediately predict accurately. The fumigant will be dispersed into the building the same day you vacate. The number of hours it remains will also depend on some of the aforementioned factors. A special testing device is used to detect fumigant levels at parts per million. Reentry into your home is allowed only after the building is cleared by the licensed fumigator AND the gas company technicians have completed their own inspections for the entire phase. Refrigerators can stay on. We do not expect for you to stay out more days than has already been communicated. It is unto each individual homeowner whether or not to advise local law enforcement of the work. However, please be aware that we are not authorized or licensed to provide security.

    How did the first round of fumigations go?
    Any problems or complaints from anyone, maybe from those of you that have already gone through the process?
    Maybe something we missed or maybe we can learn from them?
    I noticed that many plants died even if they were away from the wall(building).
    How far away should they have to be?

      Phase one went well. The work was able to be completed as scheduled. A couple of things your neighbors did well was providing key information well in advance which allowed us to work without need for a locksmith. Common mistakes neighbors made was not properly double-bagging their food as instructed. The biggest issue we ran into was people approaching the work area and entering the building before the specified 6pm return time. This could potentially be dangerous as we cannot promise safe living conditions until 6pm on return day.

          Hey Nicole. Yes, fridges and freezers also get inspected. Food will be thrown out at your expense only if it is not properly double bagged using only the Nylofume bags we have provided.

    If I can make a suggestion, it is not a very good idea to put all this information on a public website. Everyone will know when and where the fumigation takes place? At least there should be some type of password or restricted access.

    It was said in the webinar that we don’t have to remove plants, just water them well. But the PandaDoc says we have to. Which is true?

    Also, whose choice was it to do this fumigation over the weekend? If you don’t work Sundays, why couldn’t this be done during the week therefore the entire process would be only 3 days, 2 nights instead of 4/3?

    Where are we supposed to tell you about where the key will be left? The webinar said it would be asked on the PandaDoc, but I did not see it there. Is it possible to wait until you show up Friday morning to hand someone the key?

    Reply
    • Ozzie Camacho

      We recommend that you remove plants as you wish. However, it is not a requirement. The fumigation dates is dependent on several factors such as the availability of the fumigators, our own availability to coordinate between the fumigators and all the affected residents, and the availability of the gas company to dispatch the necessary amount of technicians to service such a large community. As far as submitting your key, you will receive a separate email after your your form (the PandaDoc) has been completed. That email will walk you through the instructions for providing a key.

    Not to sure about the patio area. I can leave my items on the patio correct? But do I have to move them away from the wall? Our patio has an overhang and I am assuming the tent just hangs over the end of the roof/overhang?
    Also and more important, we DO NOT have keys for the back patios. they are sliding glass doors and screens. I cannot leave you a key, therefore.
    I do not wish to leave my sliding door unlocked for the 4 days.
    Is the front door keys sufficient for you to enter?
    Also I have a tall dresser in my closet. I will leave the drawers open, but I do not have to take out do I? There is plenty of access for spraying or whatever it is you are doing?
    Also, boxes under the bed have to be removed, uncovered, open? Please explain completely. I am not that young and healthy and this is quite a difficult thing to do. Thank you for your Help…

      We are expecting to cover the entire patio and balcony. If you choose to remove your plants, they are best left as far away from the building as you can get them. The ideal spot would be an empty parking space.

      We only need front door keys. Your dresser can stay in the closet. Your boxes under the bed can also stay where they are.

      Hey J. The confirmation should be enough for your form submission. We can pinpoint down to your unit to double check if you’d like. Glucerna shakes are fine to leave out as long as they are factory sealed. Any other containers that have been opened should be double bags using only the Nylofume bags we provide. Unopened glass containers can stay as is. Same for factory sealed canned goods. Cardboard boxes and other storage boxes do not need to be emptied out.

    I am a longtime homeowner and resident of Orange Tree Condominiums. I don’t remember the last termite fumigation to be this complicated: just vacate for four days and nights. There was no requirement to leave a spare key for the fumigator to access all my rooms. Isn’t that an invasion of privacy? I certainly feel like it is. I won’t have anything like jewelry (which I don’t own anyway), but I can’t take everything with me. And I’m not going to leave my spare under the mat or in the water heater closet: I need to hand the key directly to the Project Manager (who I don’t know) or whoever will be walking around my condo investigating after fumigation. It’s too late now, but can’t the next fumigation use that orange-flavored gas that’s safe around humans but still toxic to termites? This gas can’t possibly be much good if we need to have fumigation redone every ten years or so.

    Reply
    • Ozzie Camacho

      hey Michael. Fumigation regulations have changed over the years. The preparation process we have communicated to you is the same process you’d have to follow regardless of the company. Fumigations may also differ depending on the target pest and the product being used. You also have the option of securing your key in a lockbox if you’d rather not leave it under the mat. There are no options for flavors of fumigant as any fumigant used is potentially harmful for humans. It is not safe for humans to be around which is why you are required to vacate accordingly. Fumigation for termites is also not a preventative treatment.

    We have factory sealed juice boxes and protein shakes, also our other food item are stored in sealed hard plastic containers already (due to a mouse issue prior) Do we have to bag these items. Also if food is still in its original factory sealed containers unopened in the fridge and freezer, do they have to be bagged. I understood it to only mean “opened uncovered ” food items. How do I get additional bags? I assume, our safe does not need to be open

      Hey Johnny. Nylofume bags are the only containers allowed for food storage when conducting a fumigation. Only glass containers and metal cans can stay as is if they are still facotry sealed. All other items like juice boxes and bags of dry goods must be stored in Nylofume bags. The safe does need to be opened and inspected prior to fumigation. Please email us at fumigations@accuratetermitecontrol.com to coordinate the purchase of additional bags and the inspections of your safe.

    hi Ozzie, I have a few more question please. so shall I understand that as long as they are food or anything that are eatable(like medicine etc), they all need to be bagged EXCEPT water ( even they are open bottle water in the refrigerator)? I have two big packs of bottled water in my kitchen as well.

    and you said that dishes/plates are all good and no need to be bagged, so how about the toothpastes? no need to be bagged (as long as they are not eatable)??

    How the fumigation works as the gas is very harmful? why dishes/plates don’t need to be bagged and even washed after the fumigation as we will use them to put the food on, while the food needs to be bagged?

      Hi August. Your first paragraph is correct. Edibles must be double bagged using only the Nyloume bags we have provided with the exception of water and ice. All other items including hygiene and cosmetics do not need to be double bagged as the gas does not leave a residual. Double bagging your food is a law set in place as an added safety measure.

    Hi there. I have a few more questions please. so shall I understand that all food and eatable items need to be bagged EXCEPT water? i have open water bottles in the refridge, and also two big packs of bottled water in the kitchen, are they safe leaving there without bagging? also how about toothpaste? I know it’s not eatable, but they are put into the mouth, so I am not quite sure this one.

    so when we are bagging the food, what kind of seal is required? robber band is ok? taping is ok? but no matter whether robber band or taping, it will still have some gas that air can get in. is it really safe for food being bagged just like that?

    can Microwave door remain close?

      Hi August. Correct. Water does not need to be double-bagged regardless of where it is. Toothpaste is not considered edible and does not need to be bagged. Rubber bands are okay to be used for sealing the bags. Click on the link below to view the bagging instructions video.

    Please let me know if this could be a possible inconvenience.

      Hi Nicole. It would be best to NOT put plastic covering over your items if they are not food items. Doing so would make it difficult to ventilate the fumigant out of your unit when it comes time to ventilate the building. The best thing you can do with all your clothes, stuffed animals, and picture frames from the wall is to leave them exactly where they are.

    Hi!
    When, where do I drop off the key? How do I get it back? What am I allowed/not allowed to leave on my apartment when it is fumigated?

    Thanks!

      Hi Isa. Keys will be collected no earlier than the morning of your fumigation. Please do not bring your key to any office before then. If you have already submitted your Occupant’s Fumigation Notice form, you should have been sent a follow up link that will give you options for key arrangements. As far as what to leave in the apartment, please review one of the recorded webinars found on this site or you can attend an upcoming live webinar. Those details are covered extensively in either.

    1. What is the exact dose of Vikane you are planning to use (in terms of oz-h, or 1x, etc)?
    2. Based on the disclaimer form, is it correct that the building will be covered and Vikane fumigant will be introduced on the very first day?
    3. How many hours or days will Vikane be present in our building?
    4. How do you ensure that Vikane has dropped to a safe level for us to enter back into the building? Do you use any equipment to check the level of Vikane in the building to confirm it safe for us to enter back into the building?
    5. Will the fridge or freezer need to be turned off?
    6. Would you need us to be away for additional days, if there is just normal rain during that weekend? Just wondering how bad it needs to be in terms of rain/wind in order to trigger the delay.
    7. Do we need to alert the Irvine Police department? Not sure if they will stop by more frequently to check on our homes.

      Hi Candy. The exact dosage can only be determined on the morning of the fumigation as it is dependent on wind speed, ground temperature, size of the building, soil conditions, as well as several other factors for which we cannot immediately predict accurately. The fumigant will be dispersed into the building the same day you vacate. The number of hours it remains will also depend on some of the aforementioned factors. A special testing device is used to detect fumigant levels at parts per million. Reentry into your home is allowed only after the building is cleared by the licensed fumigator AND the gas company technicians have completed their own inspections for the entire phase. Refrigerators can stay on. We do not expect for you to stay out more days than has already been communicated. It is unto each individual homeowner whether or not to advise local law enforcement of the work. However, please be aware that we are not authorized or licensed to provide security.

        Does the water heater need to be turned off?

          Yes. The gas company will be taking care of that for you.

    How did the first round of fumigations go?
    Any problems or complaints from anyone, maybe from those of you that have already gone through the process?
    Maybe something we missed or maybe we can learn from them?
    I noticed that many plants died even if they were away from the wall(building).
    How far away should they have to be?

      Phase one went well. The work was able to be completed as scheduled. A couple of things your neighbors did well was providing key information well in advance which allowed us to work without need for a locksmith. Common mistakes neighbors made was not properly double-bagging their food as instructed. The biggest issue we ran into was people approaching the work area and entering the building before the specified 6pm return time. This could potentially be dangerous as we cannot promise safe living conditions until 6pm on return day.

        Hello, do you guys actually go through the fridges? If you do so, do you throw away the food?

          Hey Nicole. Yes, fridges and freezers also get inspected. Food will be thrown out at your expense only if it is not properly double bagged using only the Nylofume bags we have provided.

    If I can make a suggestion, it is not a very good idea to put all this information on a public website. Everyone will know when and where the fumigation takes place? At least there should be some type of password or restricted access.
