Santa Monica Pest Control Services
Santa Monica is full of beautiful parks, pristine beaches, delightful restaurants… and countless pests. Yes, if there's one problem with this sun-splashed community, it's those creeping, crawling creatures that invade homes and businesses.
The Mediterranean climate that Southern California enjoys is a boon for pests. When the temperatures get colder, insects usually die, and rodents tend to scamper away. Since it's warm year-round in Santa Monica, bugs and critters search for food all the time.
On top of that, families, students, and tourists from all over the world flock to Santa Monica. While they make invaluable contributions to the community, they can also bring pests with them. Without their realizing it, pests can stow away on their clothing and in their luggage. When those bugs arrive, they can start reproducing at once.
The only effective way to get rid of pests is to hire licensed professionals. They'll know which substances and traps will eliminate which species. They'll apply chemicals and other tools with great care, and they'll keep the occupants of a building safe throughout the process. They'll save you time, and they won't damage your possessions.
Be aware that the following three pests can be especially troublesome in the Santa Monica area.
Would you sleep soundly if you thought that insects could drink your blood during the night? Well, when those flat, oval insects known as bed bugs take up residence inside your home, your blood may be on the menu each evening.
You might not ever see those bed bugs, but you may spot welts on your body from their bites, or you might notice the skins that those insects have shed. In addition, you may see their waste products in the form of brown or black stains. To dispose of your bed bugs, we might use chemicals or a propane-powered heat treatment.
There are thousands of termite species. Most of those bugs measure half an inch or shorter in length, and some of them can fly. Termites eat a variety of construction materials, and their powerful mouths can eventually cause major structural damage.
Think you may have a termite problem? Our trained team will conduct a thorough inspection of your property to identify any wood-destroying pests. If you do have an infestation, we'll work to remove termites from your home and prevent them from returning in the future. Our termite control plans, some of which involve chemicals, are customized for each client. Plus, we always seal off the tiny holes that termites use to get into homes and places of business.
The rodent order of mammals includes beavers, gophers, rats, and mice. Hamsters, gerbils, squirrels, and many other furry animals also belong to this group. Though they may look cute, they can spread disease, damage property, and contaminate stores of food.
To take rodents out of your workplace or home, we'll humanely trap them, and we'll block their entrances as well. In some cases, we use poison on mice and rats, but we only do so after a property owner grants us permission in writing.
