Merced Pest Control
While the occasional spider or cricket is no cause for alarm, if you are seeing insects and creatures in your home more and more often, it’s probably time to set up Merced pest control services. In fact, here are seven good reasons to contact our pest control experts today.
Rodents spread many different types of diseases, including plague. If you see evidence of mice or rats, please contact us as soon as possible. These animals can enter your home through very tiny spaces, and we can locate their entry points, discover where they are hiding and eliminate them from your home as well as ensuring that they stay off your property in general.
Spiders are helpful in that they do eat insects; however, if spiders are setting up webs around the interior or exterior of your home, this is probably because you have a bug problem. Call us, and we will remove the spiders, the webs and the tasty insects they like to eat. Additionally, some spiders in our area, such as black widows, are poisonous to humans, and these spider species need to be eliminated from your home and your yard.
Cockroaches aren’t just gross, they actually can harm humans. They don’t bite, but their droppings exacerbate allergies and asthma. They love to munch on our food and, as they eat, they leave their droppings behind. These droppings contaminate food and can spread illnesses such as salmonella.
4. Fleas & Ticks
Fleas and ticks pose a danger to both humans and their animal companions. These creatures bite and then can transmit several serious diseases. These diseases include Lyme disease, Rocky Mountain spotted fever and even plague. Even if the fleas that bite you or your dog don’t carry a disease, they do cause major skin irritation. If you notice a problem with either of these creates, please give us a call and our Merced pest control experts will fix this problem.
5. Aphids & Whiteflies
These pests damage many different types of trees, shrubs, plants and even garden vegetables leaving behind sticky white residue. This tends to be a seasonal issue, and if it is a problem in your yard, we will remove these pests and ensure they don’t come back again.
While one cricket is more of an annoyance than a problem, if you notice that your yard, basement, garage or another area seems overrun with crickets, give us a call. Crickets might seem harmless, but they actually can cause damage to items such as fabric, books and wallpaper.
Because termites are such a problem in California, we actually offer general pest control as well as termite services. These creatures deserve a service all their own, and we provide a free limited termite inspection for all non-real estate transactions. From there, we will create a treatment plan and provide you with estimates for repairing any damaged areas of your home. Our pest control specialists can hand most termite-related repairs.
These are just a few of the pests that we can tackle. We also can help with ant problems and issues with silverfish, earwigs, sowbugs and much more. In addition to providing you with Merced pest control services, we also can provide you with some handy tips to keep these pests from finding your home and yard so attractive in the first place.
During our initial visit to your home, our technicians will identify the pests that need to be controlled, provide you with a free estimate of the pest control costs and then develop an Integrated Pest Management Program just for you.
