Patterson Pest Control
While the occasional ant or spider meandering around your yard is nothing to worry about, many homeowners find that their homes or yards are overrun with unwanted pests. At Peace of Mind, we provide complete Patterson pest control services and can eliminate many common pests, including the following:
To a certain extent, having some ant activity in your yard can be a good thing. Some species of these tough, hard-working insects aerate the soil and keep it healthy. However, some types of ants are destructive and some will bite humans and other animals. If you see large numbers of ants on your sidewalks, driveways and near trash cans, there are thousands more ants that you don’t see. Likewise, if ants are invading your home, it is time to call our office and schedule your Patterson pest control services.
Roaches are disgusting little creates, and no homeowner every wants to see these pesky bugs lurking around trash cans or scampering across the kitchen floor. Chances are if you see one or two roaches on your property or inside your home, hundreds more are hidden in the walls or under mulch or other areas. Not only are roaches gross, they can be a health hazard, especially if you have people in your home with asthma or allergies.
While the sound of crickets chirping might conjure up images of summer evenings from long ago, these noisy bugs can be a nuisance. Crickets can do some damage to the plants and flowers on your property and if you have a cricket infestation, many people do find their constant noise irritating. If you have bothersome crickets, this is another insect our Patterson pest control experts can eliminate.
Fleas & Ticks
If you own a pet, you are well aware of the dangers that fleas and ticks pose to your animals. Of course, these pests also can bite people and while flea bites are more irritating than they are dangerous, ticks can carry serious diseases such as Rocky Mountain spotted fever and Lyme disease. If you have fleas and ticks on your property or perhaps a flea infestation inside your home, contact us as soon as possible.
Spiders, like most pests, do have a beneficial place in the world, but several species are extremely dangerous to humans. The black widow, brown widow, hobo spider and brown recluse all can harm humans, sometimes fatally. If you see any of these types of spiders inside your home or around your property, give us a call. Additionally, there are many other types of spiders that are perfectly harmless, but still a nuisance if they are invading your home or putting up webs all over your property.
You really need only mention the word “earwig” to induce an unpleasant reaction and make one want to cover their years. Of course, earwigs don’t actually burrow into our ears, but they can damage many types of flowering and ornamental plants, as well as your garden vegetables. These pests also can invade your home, and they particularly love to hunker down in moist area, either inside your home or underneath mulch, piles of leaves and other garden debris.
Aphids & Whiteflies
These pests leave a distinct sticky white residue on the leaves of plants and trees. We provide aphid and whitefly treatment as an additional service during certain times of the year to ensure that your plants and trees look their best throughout the beautiful spring and summer months.
Termites, of course, are one of the world’s most destructive pests and if you have notice even just a tiny bit of termite droppings or a pile of wings in your home, you definitely have some level of a termite problem. Removing termites is another additional service we provide. We offer a free limited termite inspection (non-real estate transactions) and can provide you with various treatment options and even provide you with most termite-related repairs.
Our Patterson pest control team can handle all of these common pests as well as just about any others you might encounter, including any rodent problems you might be having. We handle both interior and exterior infestations and to ensure that the pests in our area don’t continue to invade your home, we will develop an Integrated Pest Management Program that includes monthly or bi-monthly service cycles depending on your needs.
Many people ask us why a professional exterminator is a better option that attempting do-it-yourself treatments. The truth is most DIY treatments only eliminate pests temporarily or only eliminate pests that you can see. Most pests hide in places where it is difficult for homeowners to treat. Additionally, distinct species require different types of treatments and a professional exterminator can identify exactly what species of pests you have and eliminate them in all of their hiding places.
If you have any type of pests, give us a call today and we will set up an appointment. Our general Patterson pest control services are guaranteed or we will return to your house and fix the issue at no charge.
Patterson Termite Repair
Of all the many pests you might have in your home, termites are perhaps the most dangerous. While they might not cause harm to your body, they can cause severe damage to the wood in your home, not to mention wood decks, balconies and fencing. Here are a few interesting facts about termites and some information about our Patterson termite and repair services.
Termites Leave Signs
We don’t mean little protest signs like “Eat More Wood,” but they do leave some clues behind to let homeowners know that they have invaded your home. Typically, you will see tiny pieces of wood that resemble pencil shavings or perhaps piles of termite wings. Even if you see just one pile of droppings or one single termite, you need to contact our Patterson termite and repair service. The smallest evidence of termites indicates that a colony (or colonies) of termites has moved in and is busily munching away on your home.
Once you book an appointment, our team will identify which type of termites you have and locate all of their hiding areas. Then we will develop a treatment plan and provide you with a cost estimate. After treatment, we also can provide you with most repairs related to termite damage, such as dry rot.
In addition to providing Patterson termite and repair services, we also provide all types of pest control. If you notice any other pests, such as spiders, ants, silverfish, mice, roaches, whiteflies and more, give us a call and we can help you eliminate the pests and keep them under control permanently.
Patterson Home Inspections
If you are buying a home, you know that aside from the home price, there are many other related expenses. While some of these extra expenses might seem more like a nuisance than a necessity, your Patterson home inspection costs will be worth every penny. A thorough home inspection uncovers everything that you need to know about the condition of your home, so that there are no big surprises after escrow closes.
Turnaround Time & Cost
Because each property is unique, we don’t offer a one-size-fits-all price for our Patterson home inspections. Your inspection cost will be based on the size and age of the home. After all, an older home or a larger property requires more time to inspect, so these can cost more to inspect than a new or smaller home.
Typically, we spend two to four hours inspecting a home, and this depends upon the size of the home and the overall condition of the home, as well as the age of the home and property. We always recommend that our customers come along for the inspection, so that your inspector can point out and explain any issues.
Any issues we find also will be included in the comprehensive report that we include with each inspection. Generally, we email a PDF version of your report within two business days of the inspection.
At Peace of Mind, we provide home buyers with hundreds of home inspections each year. With just one call to Peace of Mind, we can schedule any type of home inspections you might need, including a full home inspection as well as pest inspections, pool, roof, chimney, septic and well inspections. Give us a call at 866-757-8480 and set up your Patterson home inspection today or We also provide home inspections throughout Stanislaus County, Merced County and San Joaquin County.
