Riddle Field gets rid of unwanted pests

With Little League season finished, the concession stand and clubhouse at Riddle Field was “under wraps” for several days last week, courtesy of The Termite Guy.

Laguna Beach resident Alex del Toro, whose son Nolan, 10, has played Little League for 4 years, donated the tenting of the facility.

“Riddle Field is a one-of-a-kind gem; we need to preserve it and make sure that it is around for future generations,” del Toro said. “Over the years, so many Lagunans have volunteered their time, energy and money to create this special environment and now it needs to be maintained. I’m just doing what I can to help out.”


Del Toro developed The Termite Guy 11 years ago in Laguna and now services most of Southern California. Del Toro can be reached at (877) 837-6483.
