Bees and wasps are dangerous because of their painful and potentially harmful stings. Don't let wasps steal your backyard and keep you stuck inside! Take back your space with Southern California Exterminators. Wasp, hornet, and bees nests vary in size, shape, and location depending on the specific type. There are various methods of protection that each have different benefits, we’ll use our expertise to help you determine exactly which method or combination is best for your situation. Some methods target future nest sites, keeping wasps from reproducing in the area and forming future colonies.
Our expert extermination professionals use special protective gear to identify and remove wasp nests and beehives. Insecticides are also used to prevent future colonies and to create a perimeter around your home or business. Our team will identify any signs of a potential wasp infestation and potential causes. Nests can be built inside the home or near openings to the home, some clients have even found out about their wasp infestation after they heard a strange buzzing sound coming from their bedroom ceilings. Wasps often seek protected spaces, warm enough for them to survive the winter and out of the way enough to avoid being noticed like attics or crawl spaces.
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.
Ants cause various types of damage, depending upon the variety. Carpenter ants tunnel through wood, destroying structures. Pharaoh ants may transmit serious diseases. A fire ant’s sting is potentially deadly to susceptible individuals, and all ants contaminate the food they infest.
Ants build massive colonies, which means that you can typically identify their presence by locating their nests or the ants themselves moving throughout your home or property. Treatments involve baiting, insecticide, and sealing off entry to buildings.
Except for poisonous spiders, such as the black widow and the brown recluse, spiders are not harmful to humans. It becomes necessary to control spiders when their population gets out of control. In those cases, chemical control is used along with the destruction of webs and eggs. Since they feed on insects, measures that control unwanted insects will also reduce spider populations.
Bed bugs are small parasitic insects that live by feeding exclusively on the blood of warm-blooded mammals, including humans. However, the term is generally used to refer to species that prefer to feed on human blood. Bed Bugs can cause health concerns including; skin rashes, psychological effects, and allergic symptoms. Bed bug bites and related conditions have been on the rise since 1995. The exact causes of this resurgence remain unclear. However, bed bugs have been known human parasites for thousands of years.
Bed bugs get their name from the insect's preferred habitat in beds. Bed bugs, though not strictly nocturnal, are mainly active at night and are capable of feeding unnoticed on their hosts (humans), making them hard to spot. Bed bugs often lodge unnoticed in dark crevices, and eggs can be nestled in fabric seams. Aside from bite symptoms, signs include fecal spots, blood smears on sheets, and moults.
Bed Bug Nesting Locations can Include:
- Bedside Clutter
- Beds and Linens
- Animal Cages and Homes
