About Fresno, CA & Our Pest Control Services

Fresno was born with the establishment of the then Central Pacific Railroad Depot in 1872. In 1889, the Southern Pacific Railroad, which had acquired Central Pacific, constructed a new depot on the original depot site. The brick Queen Anne style depot was a jewel for the city and is currently one of Fresno’s oldest standing buildings. In 1971, 99 years after it first opened for business on its current site, the Depot closed its rail operations due to the decline in business.

About Bed Bugs in Fresno, CA

Bedbugs hide in:

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

Bedbugs like to attack in the evening and will stay busy until just before dawn. Bedbugs bite a person’s exposed skin while sleeping on an infested bed, leaving reddish itchy spots. Bed bugs were once eradicated in the United States, but they are again making a comeback thanks to international tourists. Motels and condominium buildings are the most popular venues to locate them. These bugs can last an entire year without eating. This allows them to travel from one site to another until they find a comfortable place with food.

Furthermore, they are now living in sofas and may be moved from house to property using secondhand furniture. Domestic animals, such as dogs and cats, have thick hair that provides an excellent hiding place for bedbugs. Using public transportation, such as buses, trains, and cabs might expose you to bed bugs, which you then carry home with you. Bedbugs are parasitic six-legged parasites that feed on human and animal blood. Their length is around a quarter of an inch, and they have an oval flat form. A regular female may lay 5 to 7 eggs each week and will generate around 500 eggs over the course of her life, which can range from 12 to 75 months. The eggs develop into nymphs between 6 to 17 days of being laid.

About Termites in Fresno, CA

Wood-eating termites feed on decaying plants, trees, and bushes in the soil. The jaws of a wood-eating termite are capable of ripping cellulose material. This capability is what will generate concern in our homes. A typical subterranean termite colony may devour up to 16 grams of wood every day. This equates to around 13 pounds of wood each year. Although subterranean termite workers are only 1 centimeter to a few millimeters in size, their feeding habits are adept at causing significant property damage. Termites feed on house foundations, furniture, cabinets, and even magazines. Subterranean termite houses are often created underground. Termites build sophisticated tunnel systems in these heaps and then utilize earth tunnels to seek above-ground wood supplies. Drywood termites live within the hardwood that they devour, as well as infesting walls and furniture. Termites are sometimes referred regarded as “silent destroyers” since they may be found hidden at home or in your yard with no visible signs of harm.

About Ants in Fresno, CA

There are around 270 distinct kinds of ants in California. Ants are more prone to infiltrate homes in cold, damp weather, such as the winter, when they are seeking for a warm place to stay. In Northern California, Argentine ants are one of the most common invaders. The ratio of 300 queens to 1,000 worker ants is not unusual in Argentine Ant colonies. They don’t make a permanent home and instead relocate when a threat is detected. Argentine Ants are known to live in cities because they have a constant supply of water.

Carpenter ants are one of the more large species found in Northern California. They have the same ability to chew through wood like termites, but instead of utilizing it for sustenance, they utilize it to gain access to your property and create their nests. Carpenter ants are so aggressive that they would fight termites to cause structural damage. Carpenter ants can get into your house through firewood since rotten or wet wood is perfect for breeding. Carpenter Ants are capable of biting people due to their size.
