Turlock Termite & Repair Services
Every year in California, termites cause millions of dollars in damage. Our Turlock termite and repair services can be your best line of defense against these destructive creatures.
Keeping Termites Away
Once we have eliminated termites from your home and completed all repairs, there are several things homeowners can do to help reduce the likelihood of a new infestation. One of the best ways to prevent termite damage is to keep moisture and sources of wood away from the foundation of your home. For instance, if you have firewood, keep it away from the exterior walls of your home and elevate your wood pile off the ground.
If you are replacing fencing or a deck, use termite-resistant materials or perhaps metal fence posts. If you have planting beds filled with mulch, ensure that these are away from your home’s foundation as termites love to nibble on the wood chips found in mulch. You also can opt for mulch that contains woods such as cedar and cypress heartwood, which repel termites. There are also gravel and plastic mulches to consider.
Of course, we also recommend that you schedule regular termite inspections to ensure that these pests are not heading back into your home and setting up colonies. We can create a monthly or bi-monthly pest control plan that includes helping you prevent termite issues as well as problems with any other type of pests.
If you need a Turlock termite inspection or Turlock termite repair, don’t hesitate to give us a call. We provide pest control and termite services to residents of Turlock as well as Modesto, Oakdale, Ceres, Patterson, Riverbank, Hughson and cities throughout Stanislaus County.
Bed bugs are some of the most resilient creatures on earth, able to live in hot or cold climates as well as hot or dry climates and everything in between. These bugs feed off the blood of their human hosts, but actually can live for a few months between feedings. If you have bed bugs in your home, these pesky little vampires are nearly impossible for a homeowner to eliminate via do-it-yourself methods, but the team at Peace of Mind can help. We can handle any size of bed bug problem you may have using chemical treatments, heat treatments or fumigation to eliminate this problem.
Aphids & Whiteflies
While these are two different species, we group them together because they have many similarities and also cause the same type of damage to your precious outdoor landscaping. If you have noticed a sticky white substance on your plants, you probably are infested with these little creates, and eventually their presence can damage plants and stunt the growth of your plants. If you see signs of these creatures, give us a call and we can handle these pests and allow your garden to bloom to its fullest potential.
Ants are amazing creatures, and while they can eliminate many pests and even aerate soil, they also protect pests such as aphids and whiteflies, allowing these creatures to flourish. Additionally, these little pests love to invade our homes, and if you’ve ever tried to eliminate a train of ants from heading into your cupboards or pantry, you know how difficult this can be. We can help you maintain control of the local ant population, allowing them to munch on pests and improve your soil without invading your home or providing protection for aphids, whiteflies and similar pests.
Few bugs evoke such immediate feelings of disgust as the cockroach. These little suckers love to live near your trash cans or inside your home, in areas where crumbs of food are easy to find. Not only are these bugs “icky,” they can carry disease, so it’s important to eliminate them as soon as possible. They also can aggravate conditions such as asthma and allergies. Cockroaches are nocturnal, are excellent at hiding in hard to find areas of a home, and their eggs have natural protection from many insecticides, which is why it’s always best to contact a professional if you think you might have a roach problem.
Rodents, such as mice and rats, are problematic pests for several reasons. These animals come into your home in search of a food and water as well as shelter and their waste can contaminate food. Rats also can carry many serious diseases and even can bring other parasites, such as fleas and ticks, along for the ride as they enter your home. If you see rats or other rodents on your property or in your home, this is a serious issue and we recommend that you call us right away.
While spiders certainly have their place in the balance of nature, many species do bite humans and some, of course, are poisonous. Spiders such as the black widow and brown recluse are highly venomous, so if you notice these spiders on your property or home, don’t hesitate to give us a call. There are also several other venomous species of spiders common to our area, so it can be wise to call us for any type of spider issue.
Keep in mind that most of these pests come in more than one variety. For instance, there are many types of ants and several types of termites. Typically, each species will have to be handled differently, which is another great reason to hire a professional rather than trying to handle pest control on your own.
If you need Turlock pest control, the aforementioned pests are just a few of the creatures we can eliminate from your home and property. We also can help with silverfish infestations, wasp & hornet issues, earwigs, sowbugs, crickets and just about any other pest.
