Celebrating 20 Years

     We are so proud to announce that Black Knight Termite & Pest Control, Inc. celebrated our very own 20th anniversary last month! We have come a long ways since we first started, particularly growing our small family owned business to a slightly bigger family owned business! 

     Black Knight originally started 20 years ago with only 2 trucks and 2 employees. Since then, we have been so blessed by our community making it possible to expand our family to having 15 trucks and 18 employees! *gasp* We have broadened our areas of expertise significantly as well. We now offer a wide variety of pest services in addition to termite and general pest control, such as gopher control, rodent control, bird control as well as thermal heat treatment!

     Earlier this year, we also acquired a new pest control route taking Black Knight to Redlands, Riverside and Menifee for accounts ranging from commercial to residential. We have seen our greatest improvement in the amount of active pest control routes that we are continuously adding to. Overall, in our 20 years of business, Black Knight has had the pleasure of serving the Riverside, San Diego as well as San Bernardino counties respectfully. 

     We are very proud of where we come from and are looking forward to thriving in the New Year. In light of our 20 year anniversary, all of our trucks are fashioning the new decal posted above. Thanks for all your love and support as we continue doing what we love. Wishing you all a prosperous year



Flea Control

Megan Pinneo


Fleas are a major burden to home owners and their animals. They can be difficult to get rid of once they have found their way inside your home. Fleas are problematic to their host, causing itching and inflammation that can last for weeks from them biting the skin. The bites of fleas are typically found in what look like clusters or lines on the skin of humans, mammals and birds. Hair loss often takes place on animals that are suffering from flea bites because of the constant scratching.

Fleas are wingless, dark colored and have long legs with the hind pair well adapted for jumping. Horizontally they can jump 13 inches and vertically their jump can reach 7 inches. The body of a flea is tough and able to withstand extreme pressure making it difficult for them to be eliminated by scratching or mashing. A humans fingers do not stand a chance in killing these pests.

What you can do.

  • Vacuum entire home and empty and or dispose of bag.
  • Wash pets bedding.
  • Bathe animals and give them flea treatment if possible.
  • Apply baking soda on carpet and floor this dehydrates the fleas.

The most effective way to make sure that you have cleared your house fleas is to call a Professional, they can apply the proper treatment and make sure that the fleas do not return and if they do they can help you address the situation. Fleas are hard to get rid of but are easy to prevent if you take the necessary steps in keeping yourself, home and animals clean and monitoring them often.
