  • How do I get rid of bed bugs?

    This is one of our most frequently asked questions! The large number of visitors and people going on holiday means these pests are frequently brought into hotels, apartments and homes in luggage.

    Once you have an infestation it is important to thoroughly survey your property to establish the extent of an infestation — there are many places where bed bugs can hide. Our technicians are highly trained to survey a property thoroughly and determine the best available treatments.

    There are a number of treatments available to eradicate all the life stages of bed bugs, including non-chemical and chemical treatments. We provide heat treatment and fumigation to eradicate bed bugs and other pests. For businesses, it is essential to have a monitoring programme to detect bed bugs as early as possible.

    Check out our bed bug pages for more advice on detection and treatments to eliminate bedbugs.

    If you need help now, call us at 800-937-8398 to speak to one of our pest control professionals or contact us online …

  • Are there DIY products for controlling bed bugs?

    There are some practical measures you can take to control bed bugs that are immediately visible, such as inspecting the right places, vacuuming, washing bedding at high temperature.

    We do not recommend the DIY application of insecticides for bed bugs in the home because of the risk of using too much in places where they are not effective.

    Our pest controllers are highly trained in identifying all the places where bed bugs can hide, using the most effective and safe treatments and have treatments not available to the home owner, such as heat treatment for rooms.

    Call us at 800-937-8398 or contact us online to arrange a bed bug inspection.

  • How often should I check my home for termites?

    Termites can cause significant damage in only 3 years therefore we recommend that you should have an inspection every 2-3 years. However if you already notice some signs of termite activity in your home, such as damaged timber, mud tubes or flying termites, then you should have a professional inspection immediately.

    Termite activity could have been going on for years before signs become visible. Colonies generally swarm when they are getting large. So it is important to identify the species of termite and get an assessment of the extent of the infestation and damage caused as soon as possible.

    Call us at 800-937-8398 or contact us online to arrange an appointment.

Termite control San Jose, CA

There are a number of invasive termite species active in the San Jose area. Western subterranean termites are one of the primary termite species we encounter in homes. A 1/16 inch gap is enough space to allow a subterranean termite entry into property through wall and floors. This makes it very difficult to prevent infestations without an expertly installed termite monitoring system or built-in barriers.

For the best termite control in San Jose, you can count on Western Exterminator. We work with homeowners and businesses throughout the San Jose community to protect their homes and buildings from termites. In addition to termite inspection and monitoring, our team can also provide liquid and bait termite treatments to properties already infested. When an infestation is particularly extensive we can fumigate entire buildings — this also eliminates cockroaches, bed bugs and stored product insects.
