Spring Pests in Orange and LA County
We are starting that time of year when the weather is perfect, the flowers start to bloom, and the bugs begin to increase their numbers in preparation for summer. Spring is upon us!
This time of year is the reason many of us live here and something we can all enjoy, but the problem is the bugs like this weather too. That is why you’ve hired PacWest, to protect your home, and for upcoming months we will begin laying the foundational treatments that will keep you bug free for the summer months.
Wasps Start Waking Up
Spring is known for the rebirth of the natural world and the birth of young animals, think Bambi, in the wild. The insect world is no different. Often, in early spring, wasps begin to awake from their overwintering process and rebuild their hives. This unfortunately usually starts in your eaves and leads to trouble later in the summer as their numbers increase.
In addition to wasps, spider eggs will also start hatching, spreading thousands of new baby spiders into the environment. These young spiders will, very soon, move to a high point, create a type of parachute out of their webbing, and catch the next available breeze to your house, or bushes in your yard. This spreading of insects around the neighborhood is what we aim to stop with our spring treatments around your home.
Argentine Ant Control
The Spring Foundational treatments have been done on your home and now it’s time for the primary Summer Ant Protective treatment. Argentine Ants are the biggest nuisance ant pests in Orange and Los Angeles Counties. The Very Large Colony of Argentine Ants extends from Northern California down through the Mexican/US border. This Massive colony has eliminated most other ant species in the area and infests homes regularly.
To combat these infestations, PacWest Exterminators utilizes Termidor from BASF. This breakthrough chemical has revolutionized Ant control through its ability to spread through a colony via the ant’s natural social behavior. As ants pass through the areas treated with Termidor they pick up fipronil, the active ingredient, on their bodies. This chemical is not lethal for 48-72 hours and during that delay the chemical transfers to other ants via touch (cleaning each other, feeding each other, and communicating with each other.) This ability to spread to ants that never came into physical contact with the treated area allows this amazing chemical to eliminate large numbers of ants quickly. Also, since this chemical is not detectable to ants they cannot avoid it or protect themselves from its effects.
Due to the nature of this chemical we want to ask all of our customers to completely avoid using any over-the-counter pesticides. Termidor is very sensitive to other insecticides and if any other pesticides are sprayed in the area Termidor is used then Termidor will not work and the ants will not be eliminated. We want to remind you, if you are under a service contract with us and are having a problem with covered insects inside your home then please call us so we can come and treat the problem for you. The other reason we want to ensure your Termidor treatment is maximally effective is because of our limited ability to use this chemical. Termidor is limited to only two uses on your property per year. This is because it is one of the most popular active ingredients in the world and is used extensively in agricultural and in over-the-counter flea treatments. If you partner with PacWest Exterminators then we can completely control your ant problem all summer long. You will never have to worry about waking up to that dreaded invasion in your kitchen or bathroom again!
Early Spring Pest Treatments
PacWest Exterminators takes the early spring treatments seriously and uses this time to try to prevent infestations of spiders and wasps. It's never too early to start protecting your Orange County home from annoying pests.
We use a cutting edge non-repellent insecticide in planters and other areas where bugs breed, to prevent them from expanding their populations. We also use this spray on bushes and areas that spiders infest around your home to prevent those young spiders from invading your property.
Additionally, we spray this product in and around your eaves to both stop wasps from setting up shop and to catch any spiders trying to attack your house. With our unique spring preventative treatment we begin the process of disrupting insects from getting a foothold in your home, providing you a better summer experience.
