OUR STORY

In 1976, Wayne Stone had a vision to create a business that would support his family. Wayne’s daughter Debbie joined the company part time in 1978 and then became one of the earliest female pest control technician’s in 1980.

A few years later her husband, Mark Tammariello joined the business. W.A. Stone Termite’s Alternatives to Fumigation is one of the oldest San Diego based companies offering non-chemical & limited chemical options in termite and pest control. Even before the green movement, W.A. Stone Termite utilized the most cutting edge alternative treatments saving thousands of homes from the lethal gas process of tenting.

Fast forward 42 years, Wayne has since retired after achieving his goal of creating a business that would support his family and serve his community for years to come. Mark and Debbie currently operate the business. However, this is not where this family story ends. W.A. Stone is now a third generational company as Wayne’s granddaughter Lauren has taken over the executive operations of the business.

In a male dominated industry W.A. Stone Termite’s Alternatives to Fumigation is one of the few companies in this industry who has State licensed women managing their major departments. W.A. Stone Termite prides itself in honest quality work…everyone at Stone likes what they do and so will you!

What sets us apart from other companies is that we have outstanding employees that are like family. We all enjoy what we do and working together. This sense of family then translates to the product we put out.”

  • Lauren Sayegh COO

​ “It all starts with knowledge & experience. I have been very fortunate to have the benefit of a great mentor. For 26 years my father-in-law Wayne Stone passed to me a great wealth of knowledge from his many years of experience and hard work. Over the years we have been pioneers in alternative treatments. From Power Plant (orange oil), bioblast (biological nematode), microwave treatments in the 80’s & 90’s to thermal (HeatMaster) treatments, W.A. Stone has mastered them all. This experience combined with my own experience in the pest control industry and building/construction trades have proven to be invaluable in everyday operations.”

Alternatives to Fumigation

W.A. Stone Termite’s Alternatives to Fumigation is one of the oldest San Diego-based companies offering non-chemical & limited chemical options in termite and pest control. Even before the green movement, W.A. Stone Termite utilized the most cutting-edge alternative treatments saving thousands of homes from the lethal gas process of tenting.

Over the years we have been pioneers in alternative treatments. From Power Plant (orange oil), bioblast (biological nematode), microwave treatments in the 80’s & 90’s to thermal (HeatMaster) treatments, W.A. Stone has mastered them all. While pesticide applications do have a definite benefit to assist in pest control in our living environment, limitations of their use can help sustain the natural balance of beneficial non-target pests. Of course, fumigation is also one of the tools in our arsenal but is used sparingly and only provided in the safest manner possible.

Over the past few years, W.A. Stone has tailored hybrid pest control techniques which utilize the benefit of pesticide usage for remedial treatments and the use non-pesticide techniques for maintenance control measures. This process, also known as Integrated Pest Management has been known for many years however with W.A. Stone it has moved to the front lines in termite & pest defense.

​Our CEO Mark Tammariello shares his insight. “It all starts with knowledge & experience. While the large chain companies may offer some of the same techniques,  we smaller businesses are pushed to be a step ahead and offer tomorrow’s solutions today. I have been very fortunate to have the benefit of a great mentor. For 26 years my father-in-law Wayne Stone passed to me a great wealth of knowledge from his many years of experience and hard work. This experience combined with my own experience in the pest control industry and  building/construction trades have proven to be invaluable in everyday operations.”
