  • What is effective home pest control?

    An effective home pest control treatment plan will remove the pests which are causing the problem and currently infesting the property. This plan would then be most effective in providing solutions which will prevent further infestations. This may include advice on making structural updates such as fixing holes in siding or screens or advice on doing minor repairs around the home in order to keep pests out of the home. The fewer treatments necessary to get rid of pests and keep them away, the better it is for your home and for the environment.

  • What is the pest control process?

    In Santa Barbara, working with your local Western Exterminator pest control specialist all starts with either contacting us via our website or calling our local office. Our specialists will schedule a time to provide a free property inspection. We then provide you with the results of that inspection, discussing the pest issues we find and what the recommended treatments are. You can then schedule a time for those treatments and any follow up treatments at that time or at a date of your choosing. The specialists will work with you to find the best time to provide the treatments and offer you assistance in preparing for their visit.

Earwigs in Santa Barbara

Earwigs are six-legged insects which have been around for millions of years. In fact, fossil records show prehistoric versions of earwigs dating back to the late Triassic or early Jurassic period. This is roughly two hundred million years ago. Earwigs are insects which make up the order known as Dermaptera. There are known to be more than 2,000 species of earwig separated into 12 families. These insects are found on every continent save for Antarctica.

In Santa Barbara, CA, earwigs are common especially during wetter months such as during the fall and winter. Residents often find earwigs in their homes and crawling around places like laundry rooms or near doors which have been left open. Earwigs in Santa Barbara, CA, are not considered dangerous. Mostly they are a nuisance pest and are indicative of other issues around the home. If you want to prevent earwigs inside your home, make sure doors are closed, screens are repaired if they have holes, and that any hole or opening leading outside is sealed up. Repair holes in siding and make sure garage doors, sliding patio doors and any door leading outside has a sweep which goes all the way to the ground as earwigs searching for insects to eat may crawl under a space at the bottom of a door.

If you feel you have too many earwigs around your Santa Barbara, CA, home or on your commercial property, contact your local Santa Barbara, CA, Western Exterminator today.

Mosquitoes in Santa Barbara

Mosquitoes have managed to truly earn their very bad reputation. Even the largest mosquitoes on the planet are very tiny compared to humans or even the largest meat-eating predators on earth. Despite this, they are the known vector for so many diseases and are ranked at the very top of the deadliest creatures known to man. The rumor is that California doesn’t have to worry about mosquitoes, but this is far from the case. If you live in Santa Barbara and have been outside during the dawn and dusk you have probably run into these blood-sucking insects.

Mosquitoes are most active when the air starts to turn cool. In fact, during the day mosquitoes will rest in shaded areas such as among trees or beneath decks and other objects. They prefer to find blood to feed upon during dusk and dawn hours. If you plan on eating dinner outside or having a family event as the sun sets, you might find yourself slapping at these insects as they feed on your family.

You can contact your Santa Barbara, CA, Western Exterminator specialist to get rid of mosquitoes. We offer an effective mosquito service which will prevent mosquitoes from returning.
