There are many different kinds of pest control. Riverside, Temecula Murrieta and Escondido California pest control companies may have one specific type of pest control they specialize in, or they may only offer a few services (often limited to insects). Once you find a company you can trust, though, it makes sense that you would want to call on them again in the future for other kinds of pest control. Escondido, Murrieta, Temecula and Riverside have many different kinds of pests, after all. While termite control is among the most common services people call for, residents and business owners can also be affected by other types of insects, spiders, rodents, birds, and more. This is why companies like Black Knight Termite & Pest Control, Inc. offer a wide range of services. Here are the main pest control services you should expect to find in this region:
Did you know that scientists have estimated the world’s ant population to be approximately 10,000,000,000,000,000, or about 10 million ants per person? If you find one, there are bound to be more. Black Knight Pest Control can get rid of carpenter ants, fire ants, and other varieties.
We need honey bees in the world, but they can also be a big threat around the home if kids and pets are around. Africanized honey bees, aka killer bees, can be especially threatening or even deadly to kids and adults. Black Knight can get rid of carpenter bees, honey bees and killer bees.
Birds are a beautiful part of nature, but you don’t necessarily want them landing on your home to set up a nest and start roosting and leaving disease-carrying droppings behind. Safe and humane bird control services are available to get rid of the birds without doing them harm.
Did you know that one female flea typically produces about 18 eggs per day? You don’t want that on your dog or cat, and certainly not in your home! Invest in pest control right away to get rid of these rapidly producing menaces.
Gophers can do serious damage to yards, gardens, plants, vines, shrubs and trees. If you’ve spotted a gopher, you’re going to need to invest in pest control. Murrieta, Temecula, Riverside and Escondido homeowners can count on Black Knight for a simple, three-step plan.
Mice “can transmit pathogens that cause diseases such as salmonellosis, a form of food poisoning,” according to Researchers at UC Davis. If you’ve got a problem with mice or other rodents, invest in pest control before it’s too late!
Snail and Slug Control
Snails and slugs may seem harmless, but they can destroy gardens and crops by eating away at the plants and even the roots. Most store-bought snail and slug control products are harmful to household (or neighborhood) pets, though. Black Knight Pest Control offers a safer alternative.
Not only are spiders creepy with all their legs, eyes and fangs – the venom of species such as the Brown Recluse and Black Widow can be very dangerous and even deadly, especially for small children. Don’t wait to invest in pest control if you’ve spotted these crawling menaces.
This is the most common type of pest control Temecula, Riverside, Murrieta and Escondido homeowners invest in. Termites can destroy homes, but many people don’t think about them past the initial home inspection. Black Knight controls both Drywood and Subterranean termites.
