Insects fill the gap in nature with their vital contributions to the surrounding. Insects such as worms help in breaking down matter which decays and adds fertility to the soil. From this, farmers are able to have healthy and productively growing crops. On the other hand, bees help in spreading of pollen grains thereby bringing genetic variation into plants. However, having insects population increasing in one particular area may lead to an unforeseen problem that frets our efforts. We are insect exterminators based in Napa with our objective being to regulate these staggering populations. Give us a call at (800) 430-3778 to receive the best services.
Here are the areas we specialize in:
- Ant control
- Spider control
- Cockroach control
- Silverfish control
- Bedbug control
- Flea control
1. Ant control
Ants move into your home through window or door edges, cracks and uncovered voids. They are usually in search of food which are protein or sugar based. They move in colonies and may choose to settle inside of your home or move back to their location. These home invaders are the Argentine Ants, Acrobat Ants, Carpenter Ants, Crazy Ants, Pharaoh Ants, Ghost Ants, Fire Ants and Field Ants. Ant control involves measures taken to regulate or completely wipe out the entire population.
Some would refer to them as ‘ways used to kill ants’. This phrase would be applicable if we were not living in a civilized society and found ourselves deep inside some funny jungle. We use the following measures or techniques to counter this enigma:
- Ant stations – Stations placed near their hideouts or location and contain pesticides or insecticides.
- Use of insecticides – These may be sprays or dust.
- Gel strips – Applying strips on their tracks or traffic will hinder their movement and lead to their downfall.
These techniques are available in non-chemical or chemicals forms depending on the preference of our client and its effectiveness when using it.
2. Flea Control
These are small flightless insects that depend on blood meal from their host for their survival. They have powerful hind legs for jumping and mainly prey on animals with fur such as dogs and cats.
Signs of Flea Infestation
Here are the signs that are easy to note and shouldn’t be ignored:
- Irritation – Fleas cause irritation to our pets. Once you spot it scratching and biting itself, you may have to search for them on their fur. Use a flea comb for this exercise.
- Flea Spots – Fleas leave spots on their hosts which are dark and visible.
Getting Rid of Fleas
- Use of insecticide.
- Washing bedding and clothing every week.
- Vacuuming and cleaning the house.
- Using flea bath for your pests.
- Using flea collars.
3. Silverfish Control
A silverfish is an insect which bears a silvery colored body and has no wings. Silverfish are always an issue for our clients when they are found in large numbers. They feed food rich in starch, old magazines or newspapers and boxes lying inside the house for a long time. The best way to control their population is by getting rid of these items.
4. Cockroach Control
There are four cockroaches that are known to be a problem in our homes or places of work. They are the German, American, Brownbanded and Oriental cockroaches. They are a risk to our health, food, and space. It seriously wouldn’t be nice to come home to a party of cockroaches dining just beside your sink.
Ways to Get Rid of Cockroaches
- Roach stations
- Use of boric acid powder
- Use of gel
5. Bed Bug Infestation
This is one particular area that has proven to be challenging to our clients. Bed bug infestation starts from the simple things we do which later on leads to our undoing. We have to observe our hygiene and improve our living standards. However, in most cases this is usually observed by many of our clients. Bed bug infestation may be caused by us being their carriers. Our major point of concern is our suitcases which are never considered or suspected. Once we arrive from our vacations, we have to check our luggage or suitcases as we refresh and wash our clothes.
6. Spider Control
Spider control is important if we are dealing with spider infestation in our homes. Depending on the species, some may be less of a threat compared to others. We should first carry out an inspection to figure out which particular species we are dealing with. Take a picture of it if possible and send it over to us.
