Pacific Palisades Pest Control Services

The warm and sunny weather of the Pacific Palisades creates the perfect environment for pests such as bed bugs, termites, and rodents. These pests can not only cause a disruption to your lifestyle, but some also carry the potential to spread disease by being carriers of certain types of bloodborne pathogens. It is important to get any issues with pests taken care of promptly. Below we discuss some of the biggest problems with these kinds of pests and how Pest Solutions can help you with all of your pest control needs.

Bed Bugs

Bed bugs are small parasitic insects that feed on the blood of humans. They get their name because they are often found under mattresses and around other common sleeping areas. Since they are more active at night, this provides a great way for them to find a food source while their hosts are asleep.

Bed bug bites are painless, and you may not notice that you have an infestation until you or other family members start getting lots of unexplained bug bites. Although they don't hurt, bed bug bites can itch and become bothersome to the individual being bitten. Female bed bugs can lay more than 200 eggs in their lifetime, allowing for the population to get out of control quickly.

If you begin to notice unexplainable bites on your skin or you see visible signs of bugs around mattresses or other sleeping areas, call Pest Solutions for a prompt evaluation of your problem.

Termites

Termites are feared by many homeowners simply because of the massive amount of damage they can do to the infrastructure of your home. Termites live in colonies found deep within the internal structures of a home or other building. Each termite colony can have thousands of individual termites in it.

It is estimated that termites cause over $5 billion worth of damage to homes and other buildings throughout the United States each year. Termites can easily chew through wood, flooring, wallpaper, and other building materials without detection and they eat 24 hours a day, seven days a week. This can create a real problem as it allows the termite population to explode before you are even aware there is an issue.

If you suspect you may have a problem with a termite infestation, please contact Pest Solutions right away to have a thorough termite inspection completed.

Rodents

Mice and rats are common mammals that love to make nests and have babies within the warm confines of your home. Mice and rat infestations are frequently found in the kitchen since this allows them easy access to a constant food source. A single mouse can produce as many as 100 droppings a day, and these droppings contain bacteria that can make you and your loved ones sick.

Mice eat up to 20 times per day, and they reproduce quickly, often having large litters of babies each time. These facts mean that it is easy for a rodent infestation to get out of hand. Soon you may find that they eat their way through all sorts of pantry food items, leaving a trail of droppings everywhere they go. If you spot one mouse, there are almost always more to be found. If you have a problem with mice or rats, please contact Pest Solutions immediately.

Your home is an important place of refuge, and we understand that you want to keep it safe for your loved ones. If you are having issues with pests of any kind, please contact Pest Solutions to have a complete inspection of your home completed. We can then demonstrate an array of solutions to keep your home free of dangerous and annoying pests.
