Pest of the Month: Springtails

Posted by on Jul 31, 2017 in News, Pest of the Month

Springtails are very small, wingless insects known for their ability to jump several inches high. They have a tail-like mechanism tucked under the abdomen; when disturbed, this appendage functions as a spring, propelling them into the air away from any danger. Talk about jumpy! Springtails prefer moist areas, like gardens, where excess organic material enables them to congregate and breed. Unfortunately, this could also mean inside your home in house plants or other moist areas. Even though Springtails don’t bite humans or pets, they can become an annoyance due to their large population size. If you need help removing these jumpers from your home or garden, give us a call at (661) 323-3858 or request a quote...

Pest of the Month: Fleas and Maggots

Posted by on Mar 4, 2016 in News, Pest of the Month

As the weather starts to get warmer, flies will become more active. Fly larva, more commonly known as maggots, can be a serious threat to household pets and even humans. A maggot infestation carries a high risk of myiasis (a maggot infestation of living tissue) and humans can contract it. Another carrier of disease is the flea! Since flea bites involve drawing blood from the host, fleas can be a carrier of diseases. Fleas have helped cause epidemics of bubonic plague by transmitting the disease between infected rodents and humans. If a flea infestation is in your home, it’s critical to get a jump on it!
