carpenter ants Carpenter Ants - Carpenter ants don't consume wood llike termites but can be mistaken as termites. They excavate wood to make their nests, which in large colonies can cosist of an extensive network of galleries and tunnels. They can cause extreme damage to your home.
 
spider Spiders - Spiders can inflict painful, sometimes dangerous bites.
 
silverfish Silverfish - Silverfish are nocturnal and hide during the day. They come out at night to seek food and water. They prefer dry food such as cereals, flour, pasta, and pet food; paper with glue or paste; sizing in paper including wallpaper, book bindings, and starch in clothing.
 
flies Flies - Flies carry more than 100 pathogens that can cause dangerous diseases in humans and animals, such as typhoid, polio, and tuberculosis.
 
cockroaches Cockroaches - Cockroaches are attracted to warm, moist, dark environments. These insects leave these sites at night to forage for food and water. The presence of cockroaches during the day may indicate a large population. They can spread germs and they multiply at a record rate. The number of capsules produced by a female will range from 6-14, with each capsule containing 14-16 eggs. The eggs hatch in 50 to 55 days.
 
mosquitoes Mosquitoes - Only female mosquitoes bite. They need the protein and nutrients from blood for their developing eggs. A mosquito may bite only two or three times during her life, but she can develop hundreds of eggs from each blood meal. There are 24 different types of mosquitoes in So. California. At least 4 types are known to carry diseases that can be passed to humans.
 
fleas Fleas - Fleas are wingless insects that are agile, usually reddish brown in color with tube-like mouth-parts adapted to feeding on the blood of their hosts. Their legs are long, the hind pair well adapted for jumping: a flea can jump vertically up to 7 inches. Persistent problems with these pests may cause diseases in humans as well as animals.
 
ticks Ticks - Ticks carry many serious diseases, including Lyme disease, encephalitis and typhus. They can live over 500 days without a meal.
 
crickets Crickets - House crickets can damage silk, woolens, paper, fruits and vegetables. They can eat almost anything available. They eat their own dead when there are no other sources of food available, and exhibit predatorial behavior upon weakened, crippled crickets. They have relatively powerful jaws, and several species have been known to bite humans.
 

Bed Bugs Control Services in San Diego and Southern Cali

Bed bugs are tiny little insects that feed on the blood of human beings. They are mostly active during the night while humans are asleep.

Adult bed bugs have flat, rusty-red colored oval bodies, no wings and are about the size of an apple seed. They are big enough to be easily seen, but hide in mattresses, box springs, bedding, cracks in furniture, floors, or walls. When bed bugs feed, they swell and become brighter red. They can live for several months to over a year without feeding. They don't jump or fly, and they crawl and move about the same speed as an ant.

Look for signs of an infestation that may include:
  • Itchy skin welts on your body
  • Small blood smears on bedding from crushed insects
  • Tiny dark spots on your sheets, mattress or box spring which are their fecal droppings
  • Dried remains of shed bed bug skins

Be aware that other insects, such as fleas, ticks, and mosquitos, can leave bites that look like bed bug bites. Bites alone cannot prove you have a bed bug infestation.

Important note: The only way to be sure you have a bed bug infestation is to find and positively identify a live bed bug.

If you suspect you have bed bugs, you will have to conduct a thorough search of your home. Bed bugs are hard to find because they hide in, under, and around beds. They also hide inside, under and behind furniture, and in small cracks or corners in furniture, floors or walls or in carpeting close to where they feed at night.

Newly hatched bed bugs are about the size of a poppy seed, pale yellow in color, almost transparent, and very difficult to see. Once they have fed, they become larger and are red or brown in color which makes them easier to see. Bed bug eggs are white and about the size of two grains of salt. When laid, they are cemented to surfaces making them difficult to remove.

If you have bed bugs and live in a rental property, notify the property manager immediately. It is best to have a bed bug infestation treated by a professional Pest Control Company.

Bed bugs can hide anywhere but usually close to where people sleep. Find bed bugs early by inspecting your bed and bedding each time you remove the sheets for washing. Check around the edge of the mattress and box springs, in seams and under buttons and tags. Remove the thin cover material on the underside of your box springs, a common hiding place, and look inside. If you have a headboard, footboard or bed frame, carefully inspect the corners, cracks and screw holes for bed bugs.

Bed bugs can hide in nearby bedroom furniture, baseboard heaters, window sills, curtains, nightstands and dressers. Remove the drawers and look inside in corners, in cracks, screw holes, and under each piece.

Check upholstered furniture, sofas, and recliners. Look under cushions and the skirt of upholstered furniture. Turn upholstered furniture upside down and carefully look at the underside for signs of bed bugs. Look behind pictures and wall hangings. Inspect curtains or other window coverings.

Bed bugs can hide under carpet edges where carpets meet walls; if necessary, pull up the edge of wall-to-wall carpeting.

Examine loose wallpaper, cracks in plaster and walls. Inspect window and door casings, moldings. Bed bugs may hide behind baseboards and wood trim moldings. It may be necessary to remove these moldings to find hidden bed bugs.

Inspect throw rugs, electronics (TVs, radios, clocks, computers, CD players, DVD players) and especially clutter (books, papers, magazines, clothes). Bed bugs are very difficult to get rid of because they are hard to find and kill.

Making your home bed bug-free will take time and effort from you; the housing manager (if the home is a rental unit); and a pest control company. The best way to eliminate bed bugs is early detection, regular cleaning and inspecting, and targeted pesticide use by a pest management professional. This includes regular cleaning and vacuuming, steaming to kill bed bugs, laundering and drying clothes on high heat, and precisely applied pesticides directly on bed bugs. Bed bugs are killed when they are sprayed directly; sprays that have dried are not very effective. Contact your AG Pest, your local bed bug control exterminator in San Diego today.
