Established in 2013, Lighthouse Termite was founded on the idea that termite control should be honest and efficient, without being burdened by overhead or the need to pressure customers to purchase services they did not need. 

After 25 years in the industry working at companies both small and large, founder Jim Ceseña saw a need for a change in the industry. He wanted to base his business on integrity and honesty, 


"I had some repair work done at my house the last few days from two of your guys at Lighthouse Termite.  I wanted to take a moment to commend them for their respectful and professional manner.  They were on the job the entire time they were here, kept me apprised of what they were doing and could not have been more courteous in the way the treated our home and family.  When they saw we had small children in the home, they took extra care to pick up every nail and remove any debris from our property.  They were cautious of our pets too, making sure gates remained closed even when coming back and forth.

Since we experienced a fire a year ago, I have had many situations with vendors in the home, resulting in miscommunications, unprofessional conduct, cigarettes and trash left on the ground and a list of other problems.  Not with your guys!  They represented your company with an easy going, yet highly professional attitude"

"Our 108 unit condominium village termite fumigation 7-12 October 2013 went smoothly because of you.  Residents of our village were very impressed with the way you explained the fumigation process, prompt delivery of bags and the time you took helping them understand what to bag and how to bag.

From the day you received the contract I knew this project was going to go smoothly.  I appreciated your volunteering to attend my four village meetings.  At those meetings your in-depth explanation of the fumigation process and the gas involved alleviated the concerns of many residents.  I and others had no idea how fumigation works.  We are now educated thanks to you.

A special ‘Thank You’ for jumping in during fumigation to help me as I was attending to many things at once.  Without hesitation you accomplished some of my tasks freeing me to work with some of our residents.  I appreciate that extra attention from a contractor"

"This review is long overdue! I'm a realtor and have worked with several termite companies over the years. Jim, the owner of Lighthouse, has over 25 years of experience in his field. I met him a few years ago when he used to work for another termite company and I really liked his work ethic. He's BIG on customer service and it's hard to find companies that still make this a priority.
Jim and his team have always gone above and beyond for my clients.  They are very HONEST with the work that  has to be done.  As busy as they are, they have always taken the time to explain things in detail and are more than happy to walk the property to show you the exact work that has to be completed. They always take the extra steps to ensure that their clients are satisfied. Every person that I have referred to them has LOVED them.. ..I guess as much as you can love a termite company.  I wouldn't hesitate recommending their services to anyone that needs termite work. Inspections are free and their rates are very competitive!"

"I feel extremely lucky to have found Lighthouse Termite Control. Jim is an excellent inspector who was completely honest with me about the level of termite damage in my house. He laid out several options, gave me his expert opinion on what he thought the best course of action would be and then was able to quote me an unbeatable price right there on the spot. The inspection report he sent me the next day was thorough and professional which also helped me to make the right decision for my house. Plus, on a personal level, Jim is just a really good guy, outside of the great experience I had with Lighthouse Termite Control, I felt very fortunate to have had the opportunity to meet Inspector Jim. I will definitely be recommending Lighthouse Termite Control in the future to everyone I know. Hands down the best in San Diego. Thanks Jim!"
