About Chowchilla, CA & Our Pest Control Services
The name “Chowchilla” is derived from the indigenous American tribe of Chaushila (the spelling is inconsistent in reference guides) Yokut Indians which once lived in the area. The name itself evidently translates as “murderers” and is apparently a reference to the warlike nature of the Chaushila tribe. It is also to be known among the Yokuts tribes later on to be associated with “bravery.” The Chaushila Indians were inadvertently responsible for the first white men “discovering” Yosemite Valley, which occurred when they were being pursued by a band of whites. References to the tribe still abound in Chowchilla, and the town’s high school, up to 2016, used the moniker of “Redskins” as their local mascot.

Bed Bug Pest Control in Chowchilla
Bedbugs hide in:
- 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.
Termite Pest Control in Chowchilla, 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.
Ant Control in Chowchilla, 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. 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 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. Carpenter Ants may cause serious structural damage to a building’s structural strength if not dealt with quickly, putting the people who live there at risk.
