There are many ways to go about home pest control. Cleaning your home can keep pests out. Doing some home repairs can keep pests out. Altering conditions in your yard can deter pests, reduce pest activity, and prevent unwanted encounters with pests in your home. You can invest in home pest control products and try to get control of pests yourself, or hire a licensed professional and invest in year-round professional home pest control services.

While we know that the best way to target pests and keep them out is to get plugged into Bay Area pest control, it isn't enough to simply say, "You should hire a professional." Let's take a look at the types of pests that invade Bay Area homes, the problems they cause, what you can do, and what a licensed pest professional is best equipped to do.

The Types Of Pests That Invade Bay Area Homes

We have a long list of pests that cause issues in our area. It is likely that you've had a run-in with one or more of them just in the last year. The common pests in the Bay Area are:

  • Ants
  • Spiders
  • Cockroaches
  • Mosquitoes
  • Rodents
  • Termites
  • Centipedes
  • Millipedes
  • Birds
  • Fleas

The Problems Pests Can Cause In Bay Area Homes

When considering pest control for your home, you need to consider the pests mentioned above, and in what ways these pests will impact your health or damage your property. The greater the threat, the more important it is to invest in the most effective solutions. Here are a few facts to consider:

  • Most spiders that get into Bay Area homes present little or no threat. We only have two venomous spiders: widow spiders and recluse spiders. So, in most cases, it isn't a big deal to go after spiders with DIY home pest control products or to use home pest maintenance methods to reduce and manage spiders.
  • Most centipedes are harmless. If you have house centipedes, they're not going to bite you or present any risk to your health. These creepy bugs are another pest that you can deal with using DIY home pest control products and general pest maintenance. Some residents have good success using home improvement pest control methods, such as replacing rotted wood, filling holes, and replacing weatherstripping. Home improvement pest control methods can also keep larger, more threatening centipedes out of your home, like tiger centipedes.
  • There are several pests that can make you sick. If cockroaches, ticks, mice, rats, mosquitoes, or some other disease-spreading pest becomes a problem, DIY home pest control is not enough. Some of the diseases spread by pests are dangerous, or able to cause lifelong health complications. It is best to trust a trained and experienced pest professional to deal with pests like these.
  • There are several pests that can damage your home or your property. On the top of this list is subterranean termites. When it comes to destructive pests, you shouldn't trust your equity to DIY home pest control or home pest control products. It's just not worth it.
