The Benefits Of On-Going Pest Services For Your San Diego House

san diego pest control

What is your tolerance level for pests? Some people don’t mind the occasional ant or fly indoors as long as they stay away from their food and drinks. Others cannot stand the thought of insects, arachnids, birds, or rodents living under their roof. Regardless of how you feel about pests, we are going to assume that you don’t want them indoors. To keep your San Diego home pest-free year-round, here is what you should know about professional ongoing pest services and the common invasive species in our area.

Common Types Of Pests That Plague San Diego Homes

San Diego is home to more than a few species of pests. The main pests in our area consist of rodents, insects, birds, arachnids, and arthropods. Different pests invade homes in different ways. Some species require a gap, crack, or opening to squeeze indoors, while others use their strong mouthparts or teeth to chew holes through wood and siding. Some rodents are capable of climbing onto homes through unprotected chimneys. If you notice an influx of pests inside your San Diego home, know that they are coming from somewhere and might be causing invisible problems indoors. 

The Many Problems Pest Infestation Can Cause In Your Home

Before we talk about dependable pest control options, let’s break down some of the problems pests cause indoors. Some pests are dangerous. Pests like rats, mice, and cockroaches spread harmful disease-causing organisms off their bodies and through their excrement. Rodents, birds, and bats carry fleas and ticks indoors. If you didn’t know, fleas and ticks also carry and spread diseases. Other pests in our area like fire ants, wasps, and bees threaten homeowners with painful stings. Although not as common, these invasive bugs occasionally nest indoors and become aggressive towards residents—a few invasive species in our area damage property. Termites and carpenter ants chew through structural wood, rodents gnaw on everything, and certain species like silverfish stain furniture, drapes, and other fabric-based items indoors. 

All The Hassles With Do-It-Yourself Pest Control

We are not against all forms of do-it-yourself home pest control, only reactive options. If pests have not yet invaded your home, many naturally effective strategies will reduce your chances of invasion. Here are a few strategies we recommend.

  • Use silicone caulk to fill holes, gaps, and cracks in your home’s exterior foundation.
  • Make sure your window and door screens are in good repair.
  • Install door sweeps under exterior doors.
  • Address moisture issues in and around your home.
  • Keep interior spaces clean.

If pests are already inside your San Diego home, do not try to eliminate them on your own. Most store-bought pesticides are harmful to human health and dangerous for pets. Controlling pests can also be costly if you do not know what you are doing. To save yourself some time, money, and stress, let the professionals at Habitat Protection lend a helping hand.
