To Protect Home, Landscaping & Trees With Safety To Families & Pets
Our service will help control many crawling insects (Ants, Fleas, Spiders, Earwigs, Sow Bugs, Crickets, etc.), and help keep them out of the home or business. ANT CONTROL IS 100% GUARANTEED. The University of California at Riverside has proven that good pest control involves "reaching out" and spraying larger areas of landscaping of a home or business. (Ants, for example, forage up to 200 feet on both sides of a structure.) An ounce or two of pesticide (liquid or granules, baits or otherwise) around the perimeter will not do the job. Keeping ANTS from getting inside involves a good job outside. This is what we routinely do. (For additional information, see our page tree, landscape & weed spray.)
Some indoor infestations (Silverfish, Fleas, Carpet Beetles, Kitchen Weevils, Mice, etc.) usually require separate treatment from the regular service. We also have trained personnel for Animal and Rat trapping (as well as exclusion).
You can expect a fast response to a Bee or Yellow Jacket infestation.
*Normally our pest control service is at bi-monthly intervals (every other month). However, because of location (next to open fields, hillsides, etc.), some homes or businesses need to be serviced more often. So (aside from monthly service the entire year) we also offer monthly service at certain seasons, for a total of nine applications during the entire year.
We specialize in chemical treating for termites, with long-term residual control, no odor or fumes, with safety to family and pets, multiple-year guarantee, andno required annual service contract. (A service contract typically costs the customer $300-$400/year.) Over a five-year period you could see a 50% savings with our company.
(Length: 1/8" - 3/8")
These are social insects living in colonies in the soil. The colony is made up of workers, soldiers and reproductives. Subterranean Termite colonies feed on wood (where humidity is high) or other cellulose material such as paper, cardboard and fiberboard. They do excessive damage in the U.S. every year. Workers are blind and cream colored, entering homes while foraging for food, through cracks as small as 1/64". The workers return to feed the other members of the colony on a regular basis. Winged reproductives (swarmers) are dark, and many lose their wings shortly after their swarming flight. Founding queen may live more than 3 years.
Subterranean Termite Swarmer
These dark brown to black winged insects are the male and female reproductives. They emerge from the colony in a dark cloud at least once per year. Their short flight drops them to the ground where they then seek the proper conditions for the king and queen to start a small brood chamber in the soil. The swarmers are often confused with winged ants. The major visible differences are the waist (pinched in the ant, broad in the termite), the antenna (elbowed in the ant, straight in the termite) and the wings (two different sizes in the ant, all the same size in the termite).
