Ants and Spiders in SoCal
Most common pests in Orange County? Probably Ants and Spiders. Read on to understand how to get these pesky critters under control with Preferred Pest Control!
Ants are clever insects and the tiniest cracks and holes in walls, windows, or doors can serve as entry points. Upon entry and once an ant finds an area which has food, it leaves a chemical trail, containing pheromones, that other ants pick up on and follow. Getting rid of ants is a time consuming process as an ant colony can make its home in your lawn, foundation, and even in your walls. A colony can contain up to 500,000 ants and the colony itself can survive for 15 years!
Calling professional ant extermination experts such as Preferred Pest Control is recommended as ant control can vary due to the fact that there are many different types of ants and they respond to many different types of treatment.
There are however, DIY treatments you can do yourself to help minimize ants in your home. Thoroughly inspect your home and seal up all cracks and crevices that you find, trim and cut vegetation and trees around the outside of your home, clean up all debris, and use a vacuum to remove ants. Baits are good for ant control but insecticide spray is proven to be ineffective in the long run.
As you know, there are many different species of spiders in Orange County and Southern California. Some spiders like to live in dark moist areas such as basements while others prefer warm dry environments like attics, vents, in rooms. Like ants, spiders usually enter your home through cracks and crevices in window screens, doors, and walls. Another common way for spiders to enter homes is to latch on to boxes, equipment, and other items kept outside and brought into your house or business.
Spiders can sometimes be useful in controlling other pests in your home but chances are if you find a spider, you don’t want it living with you. Spider infestation can be a serious problem as some of them, like the Black Widow or Brown Recluse, can be quite dangerous and harmful to humans.
