Don’t let the destroyers known as termites and bed bugs spread throughout your home or office. Instead, call on our professionals at Stafford’s Pest Control in Ridgecrest, CA, and we’ll stop them dead in their tracks!
Why worry about the possibility of termites in the desert? Living in the desert does not mean that termites will not find their way into your business or home. Termites are a wood destroying pest that can ultimately cause thousands of dollars in damage if left untreated.
The two types of termites that are most commonly found in the desert are the dry wood termite and the subterranean termite. Dry wood termites live inside the wood structure of your home where as the subterranean termite lives in the ground under and/or around your house.
Prevention is the best way to ensure that these wood destroying pests don’t consume your property. The best way to keep your home termite free is to have an inspection done every five years. At Stafford’s Pest Control, our certified technicians will come and inspect your home or business for a fraction of the cost it would take to repair the damage left from these wood destroying pests.
Bed bugs are small insects that can cause big issues if not treated promptly. Bed bugs are a light brown to reddish color and are flat oval–shaped. The life span of a bed bug is about 9 months and they can lay around 3-4 eggs a day. They feed off of blood, mostly at night and can cause skin rashes and allergic symptoms.
Bed bugs can be found in furniture and can travel from hotel rooms onto your luggage, making a home in your home. Once in your home bed bugs can move fairly quickly from room to room, making a seemingly small problem into a bigger one. If you suspect you may have bed bugs, it is best to call a licensed technician to come and check it out.
