Pest Education

Spiders

Spiders are an ongoing pest in our area that needs thorough, often ongoing periodic treatments to keep these pests from establishing themselves in buildings. We will design a program specifically for your needs and tolerance levels.

Honeybees

Honeybees are a beneficial insect and should not be destroyed unless they are a nuisance or a risk to personal safety. We treat honeybee colonies that have established themselves in building walls with a low toxic dust that will quickly eliminate the entire colony. Many times if the colony has been established for some time, the honeycomb may need to be removed to avoid honey leaking and damaging the structure in addition to being an attractant for other pests. We guarantee 100% elimination.


Wasps

There are many types of wasps, many of which are harmless to us and beneficial to the environment. Some, however, such as yellow jackets and hornets, can cause quite a lot of pain and suffering when people are attacked and stung. We effectively treat both ground and aerial nests to eliminate the colony, and then remove the nests as well. We guarantee 100% elimination.


Cockroaches

Cockroaches spread human disease by depositing disease organisms on food and utensils. The American cockroach, which comes into contact with human excrement in sewers or with pet droppings, may transmit bacteria that cause Salmonella and Shigella. German cockroaches are believed to be capable of transmitting disease-causing organisms such as Staphylococcus, hepatitis, and coliform bacteria. They also have been implicated in the spread of typhoid and dysentery. 

Recent studies have found a strong association between the presence of cockroaches and increases in the severity of asthma symptoms in individuals who are sensitive to cockroach allergens.

Cockroaches may become pests in homes, restaurants, hospitals, warehouses, offices, and virtually any structure that has food preparation or storage areas. These pests are common even in the cleanest of crowded urban areas and older dwellings. It’s usually not difficult to discover an infestation, because they are often visible. Treatment usually involves sealing cracks and crevices to block entrance; keeping food and trash areas clean to avoid providing food; and the professional application of insecticide and bait on a regular basis. 


Rodents

Our residential rodent control program has five important steps:

  • Step 1 - A thorough inspection to identify the species, where they’re nesting, and what factors are attracting them.
  • Step 2 - Provide an inspection report outlining entry points, sanitation issues, found evidence, corrections needed and long term prevention steps.
  • Step 3 - Set and monitor professional rodent traps in all appropriate areas.
  • Step 4 - Repairing all potential entry points.
  • Step 5 - Assure all rodents are gone and repairs done.

A six month guarantee against re-infestation is included in with all our rodent work. Commercial rodent control normally requires ongoing control measures which would be custom tailored to your specific needs. We would be happy to provide a free consultation.

Fleas

Fleas in the Bay Area are prevalent all year, especially in the fall months. Severity varies year to year, but they are always a threat. We inspect and treat your home with a special carpet treatment that contains two materials, one that quickly kills adult fleas, and one that prevents immature flea larva from developing into biting adult fleas. We also treat the yard with a low toxic, residual insecticide to eliminate fleas outside of the home as well. Pet owners are advised on how to properly eliminate fleas from their dogs or cats, which helps provide lasting results.
