About Lemoore, CA & Our Pest Control Services

Dr. Lovern Lee Moore from France first made his home in what was western Tulare County, California—now the City of Lemoore—in April, 1871. It was on the northern shoreline (just above the high-water mark) of Tulare Lake, then potentially the largest freshwater body of water in the USA, outside of the Great Lakes. The American pioneers from eastern states saw this as a stretch of vast virgin land on which sheep, horses and wild animals had grazed but had never been cultivated. By the time Dr. Moore arrived, scores of individual farms dotted the landscape, but as Tulare Lake retreated, more became continually available.

About Bed Bugs in Lemoore, CA

Bedbugs hide in:

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

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. 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.

About Termites in Lemoore, 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. 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. 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.

About Ants in Lemoore, CA

There are around 270 different types of ants in California. Ants are more prone to infiltrate homes during cold, wet conditions, such as the winter, when they are looking for a warm place to dwell. The Argentine ant is a widespread intruder in Northern California. Argentine Ants may be found in cities because they have a constant source of water. Argentine ant colonies are generally made up of 300 queens and 1,000 workers. When a threat is sensed, they do not create a permanent home and instead relocate to a different region.

Carpenter ants are a large species that may be found all throughout Northern California. They chew through wood in the same way as termites do, but instead of consuming it, they utilize it to gain entrance to your home and create their nests. Carpenter ants can enter your house through decaying or damp firewood, which is excellent for breeding. Carpenter ants are capable of biting people owing to their size. Carpenter ants are so hostile that if they suspect termites are causing structural damage, they will fight them. Carpenter ants may cause major structural damage to a structure if left untreated, putting the people who reside there in danger.
