Rodent Control Rialto

If you have discovered a rat or mouse in your attic, kitchen, office, or other area of your property you’ve come to the right place. Rats and mice are warm-blooded and common in areas all across the globe. They have sharp teeth used for gnawing and chewing. The worst part of having a rodent problem, be it mice or rats, is that they can cause a lot of damage in a very short time. Many times they will go undiscovered for quite some time until the property owner discovers a nest, chewed items/food or droppings.

They too can carry diseases and be harmful to have in your property. They can also breed very quickly causing a huge problem for you in a very short manner of time. When you see one there are others elsewhere that you have yet to notice.

Rodents can make their nests just about anywhere using random items throughout your home including paper. They can squeeze through very small holes and is how they enter your home to begin with. They are gaining entry somewhere and if you don’t find those entry points you will continue having a problem with rodents and most likely other pests as well.

Cockroach Control Rialto

Cockroaches are disgusting pests so it’s no surprise that we get many calls when people discover them on their property. We don’t blame you. They can carry disease and promote symptoms in people with allergies and/or asthma. In addition to carrying diseases, they can be very difficult to get rid of. Once you’ve noticed one, there are likely many others hidden around the property.

German Cockroaches

German cockroaches are the most common cockroach found inside homes and businesses. A light brown or tan in color they have two horizontal stripes right behind their head and can be up to 16 mm in length. Smaller, younger cockroaches are darker in color but still have the stripes. The adults have wings but you don’t typically see them flying since they can run just as quickly.

So why are they in your home? They prefer to live in warm, humid environments such as the kitchen or bathroom, but those aren’t the only rooms they will invade. Certain items around your home could be an invitation to cockroaches, even if you haven’t had any previous problems with the pests.

They will feed on just about anything including non-food items to us; toothpaste, books, soap, etc. The best way to prevent them is ensuring a clutter-free home and getting rid of any excess paper or cardboard around the home. Use plastic containers to store your items instead of boxes to ward off the filthy cockroaches.

American Cockroaches

American cockroaches are the other type of cockroach that we commonly deal with in the Rialto area. They are the largest, ranging up to 50 cm long. Their coloring is typically reddish brown or mahogany and they feature a yellow band behind their head instead of stripes like the German cockroaches. American cockroaches won’t hesitate to fly but only adults have wings.

These aren’t the cockroaches that enter homes very often since they prefer warm, damp areas such as the flowerbeds around your home. They enjoy the mulch too. You might have heard of them referred to as “palmetto” bugs because they can live in the trees too. Sewer systems are typically the ideal home for American cockroaches but they find our homes while in search for food and water. They can enter your property the same way other pests enter; cracks and crevices around the home.

Bed Bug Control Rialto

Bed bugs are a gross pest but they are also a very common pest in the Rialto and surrounding areas. We’ve noticed an increase in bed bug cases around the area, receiving multiple calls every week regarding the treatment of such pests. Unfortunately, it isn’t easy nor cheap to treat bed bugs. Anyone who tells you otherwise is not experienced with bed bugs. Yes, it’s better to catch them right away, but it can take some time to completely rid of them.

Bed Bug Identification

Bed bugs are hard to see, especially during the day because this is when they are hiding. Bed bugs are 4 to 5 mm long, flat, brown-reddish and oval. They appear more reddish once they’ve fed because they are full of blood; your blood. Bed bug nymphs can be hard to see as they are very small in size. As they get bigger they may be more noticeable.

Why Bed Bugs?

Unsure where the bed bugs came from? This is a very common frustration for many people, especially those who have not traveled or purchased used furniture. Bed bugs can easily travel via a person, animal or material item. You could visit a restaurant that has bed bugs (such as a booth) and carry them home unknowingly. This is a risk we all take and this isn’t the only way to get them.

Frequent traveling and hotel stays are a very common way for a person to end up with a bed bug problem. Buying and exchanging used furniture is another common way and probably the most common in the bed bug cases we’ve dealt with. Once you get them, it’s hard to get rid of them.

Locating Bed Bugs

You can do your own inspection to find out if you do in fact, have bed bugs, however you won’t always be successful. But don’t worry, we can help. The best way to determine if it’s bed bugs in your home is to inspect the common areas listed below:

• Seams of your mattress and box spring
• Bedding, pillowcases and pillows
• Headboards and baseboards
• Furniture near the bed
• Behind wall décor
• Behind wall outlets
• Any other cracks or crevices around your bed

Discovering Bed Bugs

Most people don’t realize they have bed bugs until they begin getting bit during the night. Bed bugs will feed during the night and because their saliva causes a numbing sensation, you won’t typically feel them biting you. You will simply wake up with bites on your extremities.

If you think you might have bed bugs give us a call. We can come inspect your property and determine the best solution. Keep in mind that treating bed bugs is not a one-time or quick process. It takes time and many things should be taken into consideration which we can explain in further detail when you give us a call at (909) 863-8830 to schedule your appointment.

Ant Control Rialto

Are you experiencing problems with ants in your home or business? We understand your frustration because ants typically appear in numerous quantities and can be a hassle to completely get rid of or ward off for longer than a few days when using store products. That’s what we’re here for so you’ve come to the right place.
There are several types of ants that could be invading your property. Many of the ant issues we’ve dealt with have included fire ants, sugar ants, carpenter ants and pharaoh ants. However, whatever kind of ant issue you’re having we can still help.

Where Are They Coming From?

Many times we notice ants all of a sudden and can’t always pinpoint where they’re coming from. You might not even be sure of where to look for entry points for ants. Due to their small size they can enter your property through any crack or crevice, including doors and windows. The tiniest crack is an entry point for ants and most times you won’t notice the crack unless you see numerous ants entering in one spot; that’s when you see the crack.

What Are They Here For?

Ants are looking for the same things we want and need; food, shelter and water. If you’re noticing them in the kitchen they’re seeking out the leftover crumbs and spills you’ve left behind. When they’re found in the bathroom it’s because of the moisture and they could easily be entering around the plumbing under your sink or tub.
