The sight of a pest can be alarming to a homeowner. Pests can infest your property and cause significant damage as well as financial losses. Moreover, many pests can pose a serious health hazard to your family and pets. If you suspect a possible infestation, we strongly recommend taking timely action by hiring a pest control expert.
Termites are a serious problem in California. Not only do termites cause damage, these insects are extremely resilient, breed quickly and thrive in those hard-to-reach areas.
In the United States, homeowners spend millions of dollars on pest control for termite-induced structural damages every year. Termites feed on cellulose from wood and other dead plant matter. Termites burrow through wall surfaces by building tunnels. Termites also feed on walls, books, furniture and other valuable belongings. A termite infestation is dangerous and can depreciate the value of your home.
Ants might start off as a nuisance, but if left untreated, an ant population can spread quickly. Ant colonies typically comprise of an egg-laying queen, short-living male species and workers. Ants can invade your home and forage the garden, kitchen, pantry and other living areas. Certain species, such as carpenter ants, can tunnel and nest inside wooden structures.
Bed Bugs are becoming increasingly common in California. Bed bugs can live anywhere in a home. These nocturnal insects feed on blood by biting on any exposed area of the skin. Bed bugs can carry disease-causing germs and cause severe allergies in some people. These insects can be very hard to get rid of, as they can hide in the crevices of mattresses, furniture and other protected areas.
