What parts of the house get inspected?
If there already is an infestation, we inspect the spots around where the pest problem exists. We need to determine where the pest entered your home in order to completely prevent future infestations. Also during a routine inspection, we locate these possible entry points to the interior of your home.
Let your A-1 certified inspector know of any past pest problems or if you have seen signs of an infestation anywhere else in your home. If we locate an area that is infested, pest treatment will start.
Treatments are different depending of the severity of the infestation: the size, where the infestation is, and the length of time the pest has been a nuisance. If the problem only exists in the front of the house we are not going to treat the entire house – That is unnecessary. However, if a severe infestation takes place, often with a termite or bed bug infestation, a tenting and fumigation is necessary. From rodents to termites, each pest calls for different pest removal and treatments.
Warning: Do not spray harmful chemicals into the air: inside and outside. It might not be enough to get the spot you are trying to target but you could be breathing in harmful chemicals instead.
Inside the walls will take a couple of visits before we are going to see the all clear results.
When termite and other wood-boring insects attack, they are thorough and devour the wood in our house and the wooden furniture we own.
You may keep the cleanest and most organized home, but pests will still find a way in. Opening your front door you can let in a swarm of termites. One night you may forget to close the garage door and a family of rodents sneak and begin to multiply within days. Or the heat from a hot, hot Santa Ana Summer day causes just enough warping to form a gap on your kitchen windowsill, exposing a path for an ant colony to move right into your kitchen. We have seen all these scenarios, but here are some tips that may help keep your home pest free:
Outside– Remove all lawn trimming, sticks, and other debris off your property. Brushes and trees should be trimmed back from the house. Garbage Cans should be closed and sealed shut. Leaving out food and water for the birds should be monitored. Bird seed might attract mice/rats and standing water will attract mosquitoes (There are bird bath treatments sold at stores to prevent mosquitos from breeding in your bird baths.)
Inside– All uneaten food should be stored in tightly sealed containers and discarded food should be kept in airtight garbage cans. It is important to leave no crumbs on the floor or counters, as crumbs become great feasts for pests. Check the sealing around windows and doors regularly. One small hole can let many little pests into your interior.
Garages– Most people are quickly in and out of their garages, making them an ideal place for mice and spiders nests to go unnoticed. Be sure to take the time to properly maintain the interior of your garage to prevent pests from sneaking into this ideal living space.

Interesting California Pest Fact:
Insects will pop up during different parts of the year. Some swarm in the hundreds, thousands, and hundred-of-thousands seemingly just flying together, but it is much more than that. Colonies of insects in the air helps mature males and females get a chance to reproduce so a new generation can arrive. Just recently in early June 2019 a swarm of millions of lady bugs pop up on the weather radar. The lady bugs were between 5,000 to 9,000 feet in the air and covering an 80 mile radius!! Lady bugs are not a threat but considered a nuisance pest when these little bugs take over our windowsill or swarm in masses.
