Here’s a no-no. If you find Bed Bugs in an item from your house, please dispose of it in a way that won’t cause future problems. We were called to do a Bed Bug job in Concord and the residents had taken out their mattress and placed it leaning against the home downstairs. This can cause the Bed Bugs on the mattress to migrate into the home next to the mattress and create a new problem.
We were asked to performed an inspection for mice and found that they had mice and roaches. In this inspection you’ll see me pull out a mouse dropping from a cabinet and shortly after a roach dropping from under the sink. Notice the difference in size? Use that reference when not sure if you have mice or roaches or both.
We were called to do an inspection for Bed Bugs in Walnut Creek. The moment we started looking around the mattress, it became very obvious that there was a severe infestation. This video will show you what to look for if you are doing your own inspection.
I was driving by Antioch and saw this tree squirrel trying to gain access into this home. This is the first time a see a tree squirrel in this part of Antioch. The noises inside an attic from a rat or tree squirrel are very similar. A pest control inspection will determine which of the two is at fault.
Rats and squirrels can easily gain access into a home when there are access holes in the roof and when there’s vegetation growing along the side of the building. You can prevent rodent problems by cutting down the vegetation and patching all possible access holes. Pictures below illustrate what the vegetation around a home shouldn’t look like.
We were called to do a rodent inspection in San Francisco. This business is a bakery and has been experiencing a chronic mice problem. They’ve had a pest control company try to figure it out but couldn’t. We thoroughly inspected the facility and found this particular spot. Unless you don’t know what you’re looking for it can easily go unnoticed. For problems with rodents this winter you can give us a call.
A common place for rats to enter attics is thru the roof top, specially the corners that the eaves make with the roof line. You can see in this video that there is an opening inside the eave that shows the inside of the attic. Places like this have to be fixed to put a permanent end to rodent invasions.
We are called regularly to do Bed Bug inspections. This particular one had a lot of dead BB everywhere. That is a sign that the infestation is very heavy. BB can hide in different places like behind headboards. If you have a problem with Bed Bugs and want to get rid of them, give us a call.
