Manteca Pest Control
Are you tired of dealing with mousetraps and bug spray? Perhaps, you are sick of spiders building webs in every nook and cranny of your home? If ants, roaches, silverfish or any other pest is invading your home or yard, it’s time to call us and schedule our comprehensive Manteca pest control services. Here’s a quick look at just a few of the pests we can remove from your life.
Spiders love to eat other insects, so if spiders have invaded your home, it is very likely that you are plagued with a few other pests, as well. Spiders, and their webs, are a nuisance, but there are also several types of spiders that bite humans. In some cases, this causes mild discomfort, but spiders such as the black widow or brown recluse are poisonous to humans, so it essential that we remove these pests from your home and yard.
Roaches love to nibble on the crumbs and debris by your trash cans and in your pantry. These little pests are certainly gross, but their droppings can acerbate conditions such as asthma and allergies and these pests also can carry some diseases, such as salmonella. If you see even one roach, there are hundreds more lurking behind your walls, so give us a call as soon as possible.
Rats and mice also love to invade our homes, where it’s cozy and there is plenty of food and items to make nests. These pests carry many different types of diseases, including plague, and it might surprise you to learn that bubonic plague still exists, even in the United States. While there might only be a dozen or so cases per year, rodents carry this disease. Rodents also carry diseases such as hantavirus, which causes severe respiratory issues as well as fever, fatigue, nausea and vomiting. If you smell a rat, so to speak, give us a call as soon as possible.
Ticks & Fleas
Fleas are horrible creatures that carry a variety of diseases. For instance, if a flea bites a rodent infected with plague, it can carry that disease and transmit the disease to a human host. Murine typhus is another disease that can be transferred from rats to fleas and then on to pets. Cat-scratch fever and tapeworms also can be transmitted to pets and people by fleas. Ticks have long been known as carriers of Lyme disease, but these pests also can transmit Rocky Mountain spotted fever to humans and several other diseases.
While you might have loved Jiminy Cricket as a child, the crickets in your home and yard are far less entertaining. In fact, we’ve yet to find a snappily dressed cricket singing and dancing whilst holding an umbrella in any yard in California. Jokes aside, crickets are a nuisance, as these pests can damage fabric, such as clothing or curtains and their chirping is far less charming than that of cartoon crickets. Additionally, crickets can bite (although this is extremely rare) and their excrement can carry both E.coli and salmonella.
Aphids & Whiteflies
If you’ve ever had to battle aphids or whiteflies and the sticky residue they leave on plants, you known how difficult it can be to fight these pesky creatures. These two creatures typically aren’t a problem during the colder months of the year, but our Manteca pest control experts can provide seasonal treatments to eliminate whiteflies and aphids.
These creepy crawlers tend to lurk in damp places and they love to nibble on bits of starchy food, old photos, cotton fibers and a few other tidbits. They also can damage books. They don’t bite humans or pets, and they don’t carry diseases, but they can damage items in your home and if you see silverfish crawling in drawers or scurrying around your pantry, our Manteca pest control experts can stop these pests in their tracks.
Ants can be very helpful insects. As they build their underground colonies, they irrigate the soil and even assist in pollination. However, not all ant species are helpful. Carpenter ants can damage wood and fire ants bite humans. While you might want some species of ants in your yard, you definitely don’t want ants invading your home, as this is a huge nuisance. If carpenter ants are munching on the wood on your property, if fire ants have invaded your yard or you have an ant problem inside your home, give our Manteca pest control team a call.
Of course, these are just a few of the pests we can eliminate or control for our customers. Our first step will be to inspect your home and property carefully, identifying all areas where pests have invaded and determining the best types of treatments to use to remove these pests. We utilize many treatment options, including baiting, spraying, granular applications as well as using many non-chemical pest control measures.
We also will develop an Integrated Pest Management (IPM) Program that includes monthly or bi-monthly service cycles, depending on your needs. In addition to our regularly schedule services, we also might recommend various seasonal treatments, such as treatment to prevent aphids and whiteflies.
In addition to providing Manteca pest control services for these pests and many others, we also provide Manteca termite inspections, treatments and even termite repairs. To set up Manteca pest control service, simply give us a call or book an appointment online. In addition to serving Manteca, we provide pest control services for all cities in San Joaquin, Stanislaus and Merced counties.
Manteca Termite Repair
Termites are something that worries virtually every homeowner in California. These pesky creatures can cause significant damage to your home, as well as fencing and decks. Our Manteca termite and repair services can help you eliminate these wood-destroying organisms once and for all. Before you give us a call, read the following crucial termite facts.
You Can Help Reduce Colony Resurgence
Once we’ve removed the termites from your home and replaced any damaged or rotting wood, there are some easy steps that homeowners can take to prevent new colonies of termites from moving into their homes.
For instance, any flower beds on your property should be more than 18 inches from the side of your home. Soil is moist, and moisture attracts termites. Keep wood piles two feet or more away from your home, as well. From time to time, walk around the exterior of your home looking for any sign of rotting or damp wood. Fixing these issues makes it much harder for termites to invade.
Inside your home, do your best to mitigate dampness and access to wood and other types of cellulose, such as paper. It is best to store paper items such as school papers, old bills and photographs in plastic bins rather than in cardboard boxes. Fix any leaky pipes or faucets and ensure that the weather stripping on your property is in good condition. We also recommend that you schedule an annual termite inspection to ensure that any termite issues are handled as quickly as possible.
