Since ants are attracted to food particles and water, you’ll need to keep food covered in a secure container and water puddles cleared out. Keep all branches & shrubbery trimmed away from your home.
Wasps – These bugs are more aggressive than an ant and can sting multiple times unlike a bee. They are attracted to sugary items.

You can also inspect your home for small cracks and crevices and seal those areas so roaches can’t enter. If you are noticing plenty of roaches at nighttime, you should consider getting professional pest control service.
Spiders – Spiders can spoil a summer party and send your guests running. But you can easily prevent that by doing an inspection around the house for any cobwebs. In fact, with the bi-monthly pest control service a cobweb cleaning service is included so you’ll never have to worry about spiders again.

Pests can be found almost anywhere and some are easier to control than others in San Diego County. Every year a single pest is flashed in the headlines because of the numerous reports of property invasions across the nation. This past year bed bugs were in the limelight as the pest that will most likely terrorize your home and have you calling your local exterminator.
This year you can prepare for the next menacing pests by contacting a pest control professional about these five pests that are expected to be plentiful in 2011. Here is the list:
#5 Cockroaches – This creepy critter is expected to be a nuisance because of its rapid reproduction. A female cockroach can lay up to 50 eggs at a time. You should take care of the roaches immediately after you discover them, as they carry tons of bacteria and have caused respiratory problems in children. Consider roach control today!
#4 Fleas – This pest has been added to the list because of its recent ability to overcome current pesticides on the market. Applied products are not hindering flea reproduction. Now you can find fleas not just in homes with pets. Any place that this pesky insect can feed on a warm-blooded host is a suitable living environment for them. Bathe your barking companion and vacuum carpets frequently as your flea control plan.
#3 Bed Bugs – This bug’s ability to easily spread via their clever hitchhiking techniques and its immunity to most pesticides has earned itself a place on the list. Bed bugs were a huge problem in 2010, and there is little change predicted in 2011. Since they can hide in the smallest crevices and withstand pesticide treatments, traditional pest control has no effect on the blood-sucking pest. Heat treatments by a bed bug exterminator have proven most effective against bed bugs.
#2 Termites – Each year termites wreak havoc to residential homes in the U.S. causing more than $5 billion in property damage giving them the #2 spot on the list. The population of termites does not seem to be shrinking and more homes are being affected. An invasion can occur year round, so frequent inspections around your home to check for their presence and a effective preventative control system is encouraged to keep these bugs away.
#1 Ants – Their size is small, but their infestations are huge!

Enjoying the smell of the evergreen needles from a brightly decorated Christmas Tree is the sure way to get into the holiday spirit. However, bringing the fresh cut tree into your home from the wild also means possibly bringing in pests.
No need for immediate worrying as the typical pests that live on the coniferous trees are not dangerous or destructive. Plus, your home is not the correct habitat for them to survive.
Some insects that you may find on the tree are aphids, mites, bark beetles, spiders, and preying mantids. Although, these pests will die soon after bringing the tree indoors, the eggs will usually hatch with the warmer temperatures of your home. Then, you may have hundreds of insects crawling around your house.
To avoid this scenario, you will want to inspect the Christmas tree for any noticeable insects. Examine the underside of branches or at the trunk for small holes with sawdust trails means a bark beetle infestation.
Before bringing the Christmas tree indoors, give the tree a good shake to knock any small insects or spiders off and pick off any egg cases. There is no need to spray pesticides or chemicals on the tree. By doing this, you are hurting the tree and making it an indoor flammable object.
Pesticides are removed faster than the time it takes to develop the product. They are usually taken of the shelves because of harmful effects link to causing cancer, nerve damage, and birth defects in humans.
Consequently, the use of a more organic approach has been encouraged in the pest control industry. Now, lethal pesticides are slowly being replaced by organic pest control methods like, natural predation, parasitism, and herbivory to put an end to pest problems in residential homes.
Pro Pacific Pest Control incorporates integrated pest management programs to reduce the amount of pesticides used but to maximize the effectiveness against pests.
Orangic pest control methods work the same and sometimes better than as traditional pest control products. However, each pest control company’s interpretation of the integrated pest management differs.
A common approach is done in three steps: applying pest repellents in infested area, encouragement of insect-predators and organisms, and the spraying of botanical pesticides.
