About Folsom, CA & Our Pest Control Services

Folsom is named for Joseph Libbey Folsom who purchased Rancho Rio de los Americanos from the heirs of a San Francisco merchant William Alexander Leidesdorff, and laid out the town called Granite City, mostly occupied by gold miners seeking fortune in the Sierra Nevada foothills. Though few amassed a great deal of wealth, the city prospered due to Joseph Folsom’s lobbying to get a railway to connect the town with Sacramento. Joseph died in 1855, and Granite City was later renamed to Folsom in his honor. The railway was abandoned in the 1980s but opened up as the terminus of the Gold Line of Sacramento Regional Transit District’s light rail service in 2005. A few former gold-rush era towns are located within city limits of Folsom, including Prairie City, Salmon Falls, and Mormon Island (though these towns no longer exist).

About Bed Bugs in Folsom, CA

Bedbugs hide in:

  • Beds
  • Rugs
  • Bedsheets
  • Clothing
  • Underneath wallpaper
  • Under towels
  • Between drape folds
  • Behind wall decors
  • Behind wooden furnishings

They like to attack in the evening, and they will remain active until right before daybreak. Bedbugs bite exposed skin of a person sleeping in an infested bed and then leave reddish scratchy dots. They don’t wander off from sleeping and relaxing area, but they do manage to travel over 100 feet at night time to look for food. Bed bugs were once terminated in the United States, but they’re making a comeback by using international travelers. The most common places to find them are motels and condominium buildings. These bugs can survive annually without food. This permits them to travel from different locations until they found a comforting place with food. They hide on clothes and suitcases of travelers.

Additionally, they are now living in couches and can be transferred from property to property through used furniture. Domestic animals like dogs and cats have thick fur, which makes for a fantastic hiding location for bedbugs. Using public transportation like buses, rails, and cabs can bring you into contact with bed bugs, which you then take to your home. Bedbugs are six legged parasitic pests that suck human and animal blood. Their length is around 1/4 of an inch with an oval flat shape. A normal female can lay 5 to 7 eggs a week and will produce around 500 eggs throughout its lifespan of 12 months to 75 months. The eggs will hatch-out within just 6 to 17 days when they become known as nymphs. Bed Bug eggs are resistant to pesticides or herbicides.

About Termite in Folsom, CA

Wood eating termites feast upon decomposed vegetation and trees and shrubs within the dirt. A wood eating termite’s jaws are capable of tearing pieces of cellulose substance. This capacity is the thing that will cause worry in our dwellings. A normal nest of underground termites may well consume 16 grams of wood on a daily basis. This is about 13 lbs. of wood annually. Subterranean termite laborers only measure from 1 cm to a few millimeters in size, their particular eating routine is effective at producing costly property damage. House footings, furnishings, cabinets, and even magazines are eating areas for termites. Subterranean termite homes are generally formed in the earth. In these piles, termites construct elaborate tunnel systems and then use dirt tunnels in which they will access above ground wood resources. Drywood termites dwell within the hardwood that they consume as well as moving into and infesting walls and home furniture. Termites are typically referred to as silent destroyers, as they will often be hiding at home or in your lawn without any indication of damage.

About Ants in Folsom, CA

Carpenter ants are a big species that may be found throughout Northern California. They have the same ability to chew through wood like termites, but instead of eating it, they use it to gain access to your home and establish their nests. Carpenter ants are so aggressive that they will combat termites if they believe they are causing structural harm. Carpenter ants can enter your home through firewood, which is ideal for breeding since it is rotting or moist. Carpenter ants, due to their size, are capable of biting humans. Carpenter Ants may cause serious structural damage to a building if not addressed quickly, putting the people who live there in danger.

California is home to around 270 different kinds of ants. In cold, damp weather, such as the winter, when they are seeking a warm place to stay, ants are more likely to enter homes. A common invader in Northern California is the Argentine ant. Argentine Ant colonies typically have 300 queens and 1,000 workers. They don’t make a permanent home and instead move to a new area when a threat is detected. Because they have a continual source of water, Argentine Ants can be found in towns.
