Pest Control In Poway, CA

Pest Control In Poway, CA

Located in northeast San Diego is the city of Poway. Its nickname is 'The City in the Country.' If you're a lover of nature and wide-open spaces, then Poway is where you want to be, as it prides itself on over half of the preserved area being dedicated to open spaces. That shows you that California is indeed very diverse and that there's more to it than the Hollywood sign and celebrities dining.

Now, that's not saying that Poway is all open space, either. Poway is a bustling area filled with unique housing options, beautiful parks, shopping and dining options, an impeccable school district, and a thriving business park. However, with all of the open space the area provides, it does give way to wildlife increasing in population, which is a good thing. The bad part is that the wildlife often makes their way into our home and work life – that's when the problems begin.

Fortunately, we at Habitat Protection have been serving Poway and the surrounding areas for over 30 years, so there's no form of wildlife we haven't seen or can't treat – we can do it all!

Whatever pest problems you're having in your Poway home or business, call your local San Diego County pest control experts, Habitat Protection. Don't hesitate to give us a call to learn more about our residential and commercial services.

Residential Pest Control In Poway

The moment the great outdoors makes its way indoors to your home, your first course of action should be to call your local Poway pest control service. You may see a few pests around your home and think a can of bug spray will do the trick, only to discover these same pests keep showing up in your home. They're continually showing up because that can of bug spray you used didn't get down to the root of the problem. At Habitat Protection, not only will we eliminate any active pest infestations in your home, but we'll also prevent new ones from forming.

Our treatment process is as simple as one, two, and three, as we offer a three-step treatment process.

  1. Inspection
  2. Treatment
  3. Follow-Up

We start by conducting a thorough inspection of your home, checking the exterior and interior for conducive conditions, harborage areas, and other signs of pest activity. We then devise a customized treatment for your home based on the findings from your inspection. Lastly, we recommend different follow-up options to ensure your home remains pest-free.

As you can see, our treatment process truly is simple as one, two, three, and it's hassle-free. To get your residential pest control services started, call Habitat Protection today.

Commercial Pest Control In Poway

As a thriving business park is one of the wonderful features of Poway, it's essential to make sure that your customers and employees feel safe in their work environment. Your business is where your employees spend most of their days, and it's where your customers come for exceptional service. The last thing you need is a tarnished business reputation due to a customer or employee noticing you have a pest problem.

Many business owners fail to realize that when it comes to pest issues, they are 100% preventable. Regular commercial pest control service could have prevented the bad review you received because someone spotted a cockroach. Did you know that property damage from pests is so preventable that insurance companies don't even cover it? At Habitat Protection, we are here to help safeguard your business from invasive pests that have no intention other than to ruin the very business you worked so hard to build.

When we treat your facility, we start things off with a thorough inspection to determine harborage areas, how they're getting in your facility, and the conducive conditions they thrive in that your business provides. Based on what we find during your inspection, we'll then be able to create a customized treatment plan specific to the layout of your building, eliminating active infestations and stopping new ones from forming. We will then explain our follow-up services to ensure your business remains pest-free.

Your business' success is dependent on making certain business decisions. Don't let opting out of regular commercial pest control services be one of those bad business decisions. Call Habitat Protection to schedule your inspection today.

Ant Identification 101: What Every Poway Homeowner Ought To Know

If you sit and think about it, ants are one of the hardest working species of insects out there, right under termites. This statement is especially true when it comes to providing for their colonies and the queen herself.

Ants can pick up a scent a little over ten miles away and will travel as far as 300 feet away foraging for food. So when you see ants in your Poway home, it's likely that those ants made quite the journey to get there! However, that doesn't mean you should have a victory meal waiting for them.

Just as many pest infestations start, nine times out of ten, it's our fault, and the same goes for ants. Fortunately, here in Poway, we don't have to worry about too many species of ants.

The three main species residents need to be aware of are the following:

  • Red Fire Ants: Dark reddish-brown bodies and size ranges between 1/8 to 3/8 inches in length.
  • Argentine Ants: Shiny, dark brown to black bodies and size ranges between 1/16 to 1/4 of an inch in length.
  • Thief Ants: Pale yellow to light brown and around 1/16 inches in length.

Correctly identifying these ants will prove beneficial when looking to prevent them from entering your home. Of course, you can use ant spray to eliminate the active ants you physically see, but to completely rid your home of them, you're going to need to hire pest professionals that can locate the nest and ultimately stop the infestation from growing.

At Habitat Protection, we offer quality ant control in Poway and preventative treatments to ensure these pesky ants never return. Call to learn more about our treatment methods.

The Trick To Effective Squirrel Control For Poway Homeowners

As pest professionals, we at Habitat Protection will tell you that there are no tricks or games for effective squirrel control, and we are the pest professionals here to rid you of your squirrel problem.

We are not telling you this because we solely want your business; we are telling you this because not only have we been in the pest control industry for over 30 years, but more so because we know the risks and dangers associated with squirrels. They may be cute to watch frolicking around in your yard, but an up-close encounter with them can be quite unpleasant.

While squirrels are not considered a major threat to human health, as with all wild animals, it is always best to keep a safe distance. Squirrels have fleas and ticks, which carry diseases such as murine typhus and Lyme disease, respectively. In addition to the health risks, we can't forget to mention the property damage they can cause, such as chewing through electrical wiring to your home, which can cause house fires.

If you have a squirrel problem, the safest and most effective solution is professional wildlife removal from Habitat Protection. Knowing the risks involved, don't hesitate to call us to get your squirrel control services started.
