The Dos and Don'ts of Rodent Control

Rodent control Los AngelesRats and mice are just about as bad as it gets when it comes to pests. Rodents can cause thousands of dollars in structural damage and are known to transmit numerous life-threatening diseases to humans. If you suspect rats or mice in your home, contact a rodent control provider in Los Angeles to keep your family safe. You should also practice the dos and don’ts of rodent control to keep rats and mice at bay and prevent a rodent problem in the future.

The Dos

First and foremost, you definitely need to know the signs of rodent activity in your home. The better you are at spotting rodent activity, the sooner you can contact your exterminator and the less time the rats or mice will have to reproduce. Be sure to call your pest control company is you find mouse or rat dropping, smell urine, see grease tracks (rub marks) on the floor, or see bite marks on furniture. You should also attempt to improve sanitation around your home to prevent rodent problems in the future. Good organization, storage, and cleaning practices can go a long way towards keeping rodents at bay.

The Don’ts

One of the biggest mistakes people make when it comes to rodent control is thinking a mice or rat problem will go away on its own. Rodent problems only get worse over time, not better. Ignoring signs of rodent activity in your home could end up costing you a lot more to deal with in the future, when the problem gets too big to ignore. It’s also important that you don’t ignore the problem areas around your home that resulted in a rodent infestation in the first place. This means sealing entry points around your home, eliminating food and water sources, and addressing sanitation issues that paved the way for mice and rats to move in unnoticed.

FAQs about Home Termite Inspections

Termite infestation Los AngelesWhether you’re buying or selling a home, a termite inspection is a great investment. If you’re buying a home, having a termite inspection performed on the property prior to purchase can tip you off to any possible termite damage so you can come back with a counter-offer or look for a new home entirely. As a seller, you stand to benefit from a termite inspection by providing a report that substantiates your claims made about the quality and condition of the house. Before you contact a pest control company in Los Angeles, look through these FAQs about home termite inspections for answers to your questions.

Q: Are inspection reports required?

A: Although state law does not require a termite inspection report before the sale of a property, many mortgage lenders do. In any case, it is highly advisable for a buyer to schedule an inspection as close as possible to the close of escrow and for a seller to get an inspection before the home is put on the market.

Q: What information is included in the report?

A: The law requires that pest control inspection reports note any structural damage resulting from wood-destroying insects or fungus. The report must also identify conditions around the home that are likely to lead to future termite infestations, such as excessive moisture, earth-to-wood contact, and faulty grade levels.

Q: How long is an inspection report valid?

A: All pest control inspection reports prepared in California are valid for two years. If you are buying a home and presented with a termite inspection that is more than two years old, either request the homeowner pay for a new inspection or schedule one yourself. It’s a small price to pay compared to thousands of dollars in termite damage that could be just out of sight.

Center Termite & Pest Control can provide you with a thorough termite inspection. Our pest control professionals are trained to identify signs of termite infestation. If termites are found in your home, we offer a wide range of organic and inorganic treatments.

Examining Some Popular Cockroach Extermination Techniques

cockroaches

Humans have been dealing with cockroaches since the dawn of time. Fortunately, modern exterminating techniques tipped the scales in the fight against cockroaches. When you contact a pest control company in Los Angeles to deal with your cockroach problem, an exterminator will determine the extent of the infestation and recommend the appropriate treatment or solution to rid your home of cockroaches for good. Some of the most popular cockroach extermination techniques include: 

Cockroach Baiting

Although the technique itself isn’t new, the baits themselves have become more sophisticated and even deadlier to unsuspecting cockroaches. Some cockroach baits kill slowly, which allow toxicants to pass through the insect’s gut and be excreted in its droppings. Young cockroach nymphs feed on these droppings and die. There are also bait products that can kill cockroaches on contact.

Insecticide Dusts

Insecticide dusts are another excellent weapon against cockroaches. Dusts can provide thorough treatment to almost all surfaces within a hidden void where cockroaches might harbor or travel. They are also capable of providing long-term residual control. For more sensitive home environments, ask your pest control provider about organic sprays and powders.

Vacuum Removal

Depending on the extent of your cockroach problem, your exterminator may vacuum high numbers of roaches before installing bait trays or applying powders and sprays. If your pest control provider recommends vacuuming, make sure a HEPA vacuum is used to prevent cockroach allergens from being distributed throughout your home.
