Celebrating 20 Years

Megan Pinneo

20 years sticker.png

     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

Heat Treatment

Thermal Heat

The Green Solution for Termite Control

Are you looking for a chemical-free way to treat termites? There is a branch through Black Knight Pest Control that can do just that, Thermal Heat.  When treating large areas Thermal Heat can ensure elimination of the entire colony. Unlike a Fumigation you when you choose a heat treatment you will not have to leave your home during the process. Not to mention becoming the obnoxious neighbor when having to inconvenience your surrounding neighbors with the tenting fumigation calls for, which in some areas my effect them as well. This one day process of Heat Treatment may be the best choice for you.

The Bullet Ant

Megan Pinneo

Parponera Clavata

aka "Bullet Ant"

Thought you had an ant problem? Try living in the Amazonian Forest and having to deal with Bullet Ants. If your living in Nicaragua, Honduras, Paraguay or Costa Rica you know just what kind of ant I am talking about. The Bullet Ant is also known as the 24hour Ant which describes the lasting pain after a sting. A sting from the Bullet Ant can leave its victim weak, swollen and wiped out. In question to whether or not a Bullet Ant can kill a human is most likely only if the victim has an allergic reaction to the bite  or not.

Be Warned

The Bullet Ant will never attack unless provoked. They will first release a strong odor to serve as a warning before it will attack. While they are intimidating they will warn you first, don't say I didn't tell you so.

Tribe Rituals

Some native tribes use the Bullet Ants in initiation ceremonies for bringing young men into adulthood. The elders of the tribe first gather many of the ants and sedate them with a drug to make them drowsy long enough to place them into large woven mitts. Next, the young males must wear the mitts filled with the angry waking Bullet Ants for 10 minutes. They must endure the continuing pain of the bites for at least the next 24hours.  This ritual is done a total of 20 times in order to bring the young men into adulthood. Good thing we do not have Bullet ants here in the states!

Just Plain Ants

While you probably don't have a problem with angry Bullet Ants on your hands you may have a pesky plain ant problem taking over your kitchen, and if that is the case you need a Professional to help you with that. Call Black Knight Pest Control and ask about our Ant Control Service. We have a plan that will work for you!

 

 

 

Spring Time Pests

The Pests of Spring

Even though some days may still be a little gloomy and may even bring some unwanted yet much needed rain, spring is here and so are the Spring Time Pests. I have put together some of the common pests you will be seeing this season if you haven't already.

Queen Bumblebee

Only the fertilized queen bumblebee will survive the winter after which she will emerge in the spring. She will then search for her desired nesting site where she will construct a suitable home, there she will prepare for her offspring.

Subterranean Termites

The spring combination of humidity and warmth is the perfect weather for subterranean termites to come out and swarm which they tend to do in the early mornings.

Spiders
