Summer Is Coming

Make PestX part of your team for a flea-free home

In the Summer months, we all look forward to the gorgeous weather and some sunshine to clear our cobwebs and lift our spirits.  But it isn’t just us humans that love it so much. Our PestX pest control team here in Bakersfield don’t get too much time off in the summer months as we’re kept very busy by super happy fleas.  

They are in their element!  The warm weather has them multiplying faster than gremlins in a shower – helped enormously by the fact that we all have our doors and windows wide open and our pets coming in and out all day unintentionally bringing in stashed stowaways in their furry midst.

The first signs of having these annoying pests is usually their irritating bites, which given their tendency to carry disease and bacteria, they don’t stay un-noticed for long.  The problems fleas bring into the house make them one of the most dreaded home visitors we see here in Bakersfield.

PestX are often called to deal with flea infestations but with fleas it’s rarely a matter of just fumigating the house.  Pets are often one of the main culprits. When you consider that a flea goes from being laid through to adult in less than 50 days, and that a female can lay up to 50 eggs a day – if the first part of that stage has gone under the radar you could have quite a significant pest problem very quickly.

So PestX can definitely help to de-flea your home or premises but we will always advise to deal with all of the factors at the same time.  If you do have pets in your house you will need to bear in mind that they will need treating too as they are very likely to be the source of the problem.  You will need to treat your pet thoroughly as well as all of their bedding and we’d suggest you time this well with the PestX team coming in.

You can use specially formulated shampoos to remove both eggs and live fleas as well as use spot treatments to prevent the fleas returning over the next month or so.  Flea collars are also effective in deterring fleas in the first place. We apologise if all of this seems obvious, but we will always ensure that any PestX pest control treatments tackle not only the current pests but that we minimise the risk of the pests returning.

Our reputation has been built up over years of thorough treatments so with flea control, there’s an element of teamwork here.  You only need a slightly warm temperature and a lovely home for a couple of fleas, besides their delicious hosts to feed on and you’re back to square one again.

So PestX will be mainly treating your premises to fumigate them but your pets and yard definitely need to be factored in too.  Patios, decking, foundations and porches are all havens for fleas to breed in the warmer weather. If you use a home based remedy, all you need is a rainstorm and all of that work has been washed away so bear this in mind too when considering your overall approach.

A well maintained garden is less of a flea risk too as they love dead plants and debris so removing these regularly will reduce the breeding grounds available to them.

If you need any advice or need a flea infestation addressing, call our team and we’ll happily get started on keeping your home flea free.

Save $3000

A PestX Termite Inspection could save you an average of $3000

One of the most destructive infestations our PestX Team see here for Bakersfield pest control cases are termites. They should be called the Silent Destroyers because even a thorough inspection conducted by a novice homeowner could overlook a very well established termite infestation. You need to know exactly what you’re looking for and where they leave their evidence – or in this case their Trail of Destruction

Even in our line of business, we don’t ever want to sound like we’re just doom and gloom but we promise you that termites are not something you want to be sharing your home with. PestX Pest and Termite Control have seen some serious damage over the years and can’t emphasize enough that any termite prevention is a worthwhile exercise, especially if you have had an infestation before.

When you think that a colony can increase from 60,000 termites to around 2 million of them in less than 6 months – and all of this is fairly quietly – you can understand the need for minimising the damage these pests cause as quickly as possible.

If you are ever looking at buying a new home or investing in a property, we highly recommend you commissioning a professional to conduct a thorough inspection before you sign anything. When you think that the average cost of repairing termite damage is $3,000, you can see that paying a small amount to ensure there are no termites in the first place is a valuable investment.

It may be tempting to conduct this yourself but not all of the destruction is obvious, so a professional inspection is by far the most cost effective method of dealing with termites.

PestX will look for evidence of previous infestations and will know whether the damage is current or not, We will be able to gauge whether the infestation is an old one which has already been dealt with or whether it is the start of a new one.

PestX will also be able to establish whether treatments have been used in the past and how effective they were. We will also be able to tell you whether there are currently any protective measures in place. All of these factors could help you save money by not having to splash out on something already in place but equally we can show you where you are vulnerable to infestation.

Besides preventative measures, catching a termite infestation early on is always going to be the best defence in dealing with these pests. Termites may live underground but we promise you this isn’t something that you want to be burying your head in the sand on – once termites are in place they will just keep destroying your premises in the process of building their own colony up. They never just change their mind half-way through so you need to act if you already know you have termites.

If you suspect that you may have termites already or you are looking at investing in a new property or premises, call one of our PestX experts to arrange a professional inspection.

We also offer payment plans which can help you to factor in having regular inspections throughout the year to ensure you are always protected against the common culprits in your area. Speak to one of our team on the best package for your needs – peace of mind doesn’t need to cost the earth with PestX.
