We provide pest control services for both residential and commercial property owners in a large area of Los Angeles County from San Fernando Valley all the way down to South Bay and over to the west side. A massive concrete jungle like Los Angeles may not seem like an ideal environment for insects, but as it happens, the city is home to a large number of insect pests that live in close association with humans. These insect pests include German cockroaches that dwell primarily indoors, American cockroaches that inhabit sewer systems, bed bugs that wind up in high-traffic public locations, and house flies that breed in dumpsters and garbage receptacles, and more. In addition to these commensal pests, a significant number of non-native pests are intercepted regularly in overseas shipments arriving at the port of Los Angeles. The most well known invasive pests found on LA properties include red-imported fire ants, yellow fever mosquitoes, Asian tiger mosquitoes, Argentine ants, and Africanized honey bees (AKA killer bees). Although many pests in Los Angeles are known for being difficult to eliminate from infested structures, our well trained pest control professionals have never encountered a pest problem that they could not handle. Given the abundance and diversity of pests in LA, residents are encouraged to contact us for a free pest control estimate.
Due to their small size and cryptic habitat, many pest control professionals agree that termites are one of the most difficult pests to control. Luckily for Los Angeles residents, our pest control professionals draw on years of experience, training, and if necessary, specialized tools for pinpointing termite infestations and related damage in both residential and commercial structures. Unlike termite pests in other regions of the country, the western subterranean and the western drywood termite pests in Los Angeles have adapted to thrive year round in the relatively dry southern California climate. In addition to these two native termite pests, the dreaded Formosan subterranean termite has been a pest of homes and buildings in LA for decades. This invasive termite pest is the most destructive termite species in the world, and they inflict more than one billion dollars in structural damages annually in the US alone. During the termite mating season from spring to early summer in LA, winged Formosan subterranean termites can be found swarming throughout the city due to their attraction to street lights, lit business signs, and porch lights on homes. There is no easy way to determine if a termite infestation has been established in a home or building, but we provide the most reliable and thorough termite inspections available. Our pest control professionals have years of experience applying both preventative and remedial termite treatments to residential and commercial properties. While we use EPA approved chemical pesticides to combat termites, homeowners can opt to have their property treated with non-chemical pesticides if they wish. If for any reason termite pests should invade a property that has already been treated by our company, we will return to eliminate the additional termite pests at no extra cost to the homeowner.
Two rat pests and one pigeon pest are abundant in Los Angeles County, all three of which are commonly managed by our staff of pest control professionals. Norway rats are the dominant rat pests in LA County, and they are most abundant on the west side near the coast and in the downtown area where they are able to gain easy access to their favored sewer habitat. Roof rats are more common in inland areas like Pasadena, and each of these rat pests are responsible for spreading a variety of diseases that have ultimately killed more humans than any other mammal. According to public health officials in Los Angeles County, these two rats continue to pose a public health threat in LA, and the local government has been attempting to control Norway rats on a city-wide level for decades. Common pigeons originate from Europe, but they have inhabited LA since the 1930s. Pigeons are known to cover outdoor benches, homes and vehicles in dung, and they often become a nuisance when they establish numerous nests on the exterior ledges and windowsills of homes. Just like rats, pigeons are associated with the spread of disease and parasites. We specialize in deterring pigeons and rats from infesting homes, and we also replace wall insulation that has become damaged or soiled by these pests with more durable R-30 fiberglass insulation. If rats or pigeons have soiled your home with droppings, chewed holes in walls, or have accessed pantry items, then you should contact us so that we can make your home impenetrable to these pests.
