What is the Four Season approach?
Our four season approach targets the seasonal pest problem locally in Southern California. Each season and climate triggers particular pests to be active and to look for harborage. However, it is common to see ants, spiders and rodents year round.
Warmth indoors attracts pests into your living spaces; rain and cold weather drive ants, rodents, silverfish and spiders inside. Pests can also be brought inside on plants, firewood, and other items. Rodents are especially problematic due to colder temperatures outside.
Warmer spring weather invites bees, Argentine ants into your home and yard. Other common spring pests include: termite swarmers, carpenter ants, fire ants, pill bugs, spiders, aphids, wasps, fleas, ticks, box elder bugs, gophers and moles.
High temperature is conducive for bees, wasps, and yellow jackets, as well as ants, earwigs, millipedes, crickets, springtails, brown widow spiders, black widow spiders and water beetles. The summer weather also spikes the activity of bed bugs, fleas, ticks and German cockroach, scorpions especially in new development areas and in homes located in foothill like surroundings.
As temperatures drop and cooler weather approaches, orb weaver, spiders, beetles, rodents, stink bugs, box elder beetles and other overwintering pests begin to move indoors . These pests use walls, voids, basements and attics as winter retreats. Termites are very active this time of the year, so too are gophers. It is particularly important to be on the lookout for droppings and gnaw marks, indicating rodent infestation. Rodent control and exclusion work begin to significantly trend up during the fall.

What are pest health hazards?
The National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS) reported that one in five children in the United State suffers from asthma because of cockroaches around them. As children spend more time indoor, they are affected by allergens that are present around them. Since asthma has no cure, it is only controlled by medicines and different treatments.
Hantavirus is a life-threatening disease, it is more like influenza. This virus is carried by rodents. Rodents are everywhere from our kitchen to sewerage pipes. Rodents are best known to contaminate food, kitchen floor and utensils. For a proper rodent control, make sure all cracks are sealed and the draining system is without any fault.
This disease is transmitted by ticks bites. This disease makes a person weak and irritated. It is common in wooden areas. Lyme disease includes a “bull’s eye” rash around the bite, flu-like symptoms and extreme fatigue. In the recent years, report says, Lyme disease is spreading on a large scale.
Serious allergies and skin irritation
Bees, yellow jackets and hornets are known as stingers. They are aggressive in nature, and spare no one who tries to destroy their colony and larvae. Their sting leaves one with high itchy skin and skin allergies. If you find their colonies near your place, consult a pest control service and let them take control.
West Nile Virus
This disease is spread by mosquitoes. Ever thought mosquitoes can be fatal? Normally, you won’t experience any prominent symptoms but this disease is deadly as it can inflame your brain. Mild symptoms tend to go away but sever signs such as severe headache, fever, disorientation or sudden weakness require immediate attention.
Ants contaminate food like no other. Ants come in bulks, if you see one ant be ready as they are more to come before your eyes. They can cause serious health problems for you and for your family. Take a quick action to get rid of ants as soon as possible.
