Pest Control FAQs

What Is Pest Control or Pest Treatment?

You can schedule local pest control services if you want to prevent future pest infestations or eliminate existing ones. These services are designed to protect your home from unwanted pests, which include everything from ants and termites to rats and spiders. Corky’s pest extermination service includes sustainable treatments that are environmentally friendly. Pest control treatments can be applied in your home or yard depending on the type of pest and where it’s located. Keep in mind that pest control often begins with an inspection to properly identify problem areas. A treatment plan is then made to ensure your specific needs are met.

How Does Pest Control Work?

Pest control involves a suite of services that are designed to eliminate or remove all types of pests. The many techniques that can be performed as part of pest control services include cleaning, trapping, inspection, removal, and pesticides. At Corky’s, we personalize our pest control services for each household as well as the types of pests we’re dealing with. Keep in mind that some situations may call for multiple treatment applications. For example, eliminating fleas requires two treatments, the second of which occurs two weeks after the first.

What Is the Most Common Method of Pest Control?

The most common pest extermination method involves using pesticides. These chemicals will either inhibit the growth of pests or kill them altogether. Here at Corky’s, we use low-impact treatments that eliminate pests without putting people or pets at risk. However, some pests don’t respond properly to these treatments, which is when physical solutions may be necessary.

Physical pest control occurs by trapping and removing or killing the pests. It can also involve placing physical barriers in places where pests are often found. For example, blocking holes and cracks in a home can prevent pests from getting in.

How Often Do You Need Pest Control Services?

The temperatures in Southern California are often warm, which means that pests can thrive during most of the year. The rate at which you schedule pest control services depends on the type of pest you’re trying to get rid of. For example, mosquitoes often show up between May to October. During this period, it’s highly recommended that you schedule treatments once per month.

On the other hand, you don’t always know when you have a pest infestation. You can prevent infestations by scheduling quarterly pest control, which allows us to perform inspections four times a year. This approach should help you detect pests early on and prevent outbreaks.

What Are the Signs of an Infestation of Insects?

The many signs that an insect infestation has occurred include the following:

  • Strange smells: If you smell a foul or musty odor around concealed areas in your home, bed bugs or other insects could be living nearby.
  • Traces of droppings: You can find small insect droppings on your windowsills or cabinets. This issue points to an infestation.
  • Property damage: Pests often cause damage to personal possessions and structures. If you notice chewed wires or holes in your clothing, schedule pest control.
  • Odd noises: Insects like termites and ants can get into your walls. When this happens, you may hear scurrying or scratching sounds that indicate pests.
  • Nesting materials: If you find shredded insulation, paper, or fabric around your home, you may have an infestation that needs to be dealt with.
  • Detection during daylight: Most pests only come out when the sun goes down. If you notice bed bugs or other insects during the day, the infestation could be severe.

What Is the Best Way to Prevent a Pest Infestation?

You can effectively prevent a pest infestation by keeping your home clean and tidy. Make sure you dispose of your trash regularly. If your trash disposal service arrives once per week, place your trash bags in a bin between each pickup. It’s also a good idea to use lids on any trash containers.

When you’re finished eating, store your leftovers in secure containers. Ants have numerous odor receptors, which allows them to smell pieces of food that have been left on the counter. It’s also a good idea to patch holes around your home. Look at your roof, siding, and foundation to determine if there are any cracks or holes that require patching.

How Much Is Pest Control Service?

The cost of pest extermination service varies depending on the severity of the infestation and the types of treatments that need to be used. You can expect to pay anywhere from $50-$400 to deal with a pest infestation. You can get discounts for requesting quarter pest control visits. Give us a call if you have questions about what our services cost.

What Time of Year Is Best for Pest Control?

Pest control may be needed at any time of the year. However, the best time to schedule service is during the early spring season. At this time of the year, bug populations are somewhat low. However, it’s not long until pests awaken from hibernation and start entering homes. Since pests are often most active during the warm summer months, it’s best to apply preventive measures when the temperatures first begin to rise.

Do I Need to Clean Before Pest Control?

It’s highly recommended that you thoroughly clean your kitchen, windows, and doorways before you receive pest control. Cleaning your kitchen makes your home less appealing to most insects and rodents. Pest control is often applied to windows and doorways, which is why it’s a good idea to clean these areas. Before your pest control provider arrives, make sure you open your windows and doors to give them easier access to these areas.

What to Expect After Pest Control Treatment?

Obtaining pest control treatment doesn’t mean that pests will be eliminated immediately. Some pests can take upwards of four to six weeks to be eradicated. Chemical treatments often work slowly. The pests need to carry these chemicals to their hives or nests, which takes time. However, these treatments are highly effective. If you don’t notice any changes to the number of insects or pests in your home after a few weeks, give us a call.
