Fullerton All Natural Exterminator | Non-Toxic & Chemical-Free For Cancer Survivor’s Home

Pest extermination may be done in a variety of different ways. In removing unwanted and invasive creatures, a key concern for many is how different chemicals will affect their health and lifestyle.

One of our clients is a cancer survivor who is very sensitive to the chemicals used in traditional extermination. Many pest control companies had told her that extermination would not be successful without tent fumigation. Determined to find a solution safe for her health, she searched for an all-natural exterminator until she found reviews of Natural Science Exterminating.

We effectively treated all affected areas of her property with orange oil and thyme oil—no chemicals!

The Importance of All Natural Extermination

There are many people in the United States and around the world who need non-toxic, chemical-free pest control.

The World Health Organization reports that “cancer is a leading cause of death worldwide.” Many survivors experience weakened immunity or heightened sensitivities as a result of cancer and cancer treatments. Furthermore, chemical sensitivities are continually reported and discussed in the medical community. 

Pest infestations can happen to anyone; termites alone cause billions of dollars of damage annually in the United States. 

Tent fumigation is the ultimate fallback—it’s a gaseous method that kills pests in every nook and cranny—but it’s also what Natural Science Exterminating considers a last resort. There are many cases in which tent fumigation is simply not an option. Each household and every property has unique characteristics, which must be carefully considered in designing a custom pest treatment plan. 

Natural Science Exterminating has powerfully and effectively removed pests from many properties without tent fumigation: apartments without inconveniencing residents to vacate, a mansion without damaging its Spanish tile roof, and even the Department of Fish and Wildlife without affecting ecological conservation!

We apply plant based solutions using our spot treatment method. The cool thing about orange oil is that it naturally dissolves the exoskeletons of termites. Another interesting fact is that BoraCare is an all-natural industry gold standard solution of borate salt; once professionally applied to raw wood, it prevents termites from consuming wood and lasts a lifetime. 

Will Natural Extermination Work For You?

It depends. It’s important that exterminators provide honest assessments of which treatments are possible and effective, especially to those who have health or lifestyle challenges. 

We will only be able to recommend certain options after inspecting your property, which is why we offer free inspections

As much as we hate termites, ants, rats and spiders, we love our customers more than we hate pests. That means we will be forthright in telling you whether or not natural or spot treatments will be effective—as in, strong enough for total removal, given the severity of the infestation.

In some cases—for instance, a persistent case of termites and multiple failed spot treatments—only tent fumigation will remove every last trace. However, there are plenty of cases in which tent fumigation is not absolutely necessary. Some pest control companies won’t mention the possibility of spot treatments working, since tent fumigation is a “one and done” and more profitable service to them. Moreover, some exterminators won’t offer a non-toxic, chemical-free, or environmentally safe method because natural solutions aren’t within their realm of expertise.

With decades of experience in residential and commercial pest control, we’ve solved plenty of unique and special challenges! Give us a call today to book your free inspection and see what we can do for you.

Laguna Beach Real Estate Appreciates With Termite Removal And Pest Controlled Remodel

California is famous for its beautiful landscapes and real estate, which may explain why it has become a location sensation for hit reality shows like Selling Sunset, Million Dollar Listing Los Angeles, and The Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills. It can be hard for viewers to look away from the magnificent architecture and luxury that serves as the backdrop of all the drama on display! 

At Natural Science Exterminating, we were called to a stunning Laguna Beach home when the homeowner and their contractors discovered a termite colony while tearing down walls in the midst of their remodel. We are proud to share this story of how we successfully removed the termites and dry rot and also treated their remodel to pest-proof their investment. 

How Termites Affect The Value Of Your Real Estate

Real estate shows are fascinating as they vividly depict and dissect the various factors that influence the market value of a house. The homes featured on beloved real estate reality shows have earned their listing price due to a combination of factors, such as their location, size, and meticulous presentation.

Remodeling is a significant investment that can also drastically increase how much a property is worth. However the aesthetics of a home are only as valuable as long as they can be preserved with maintenance and care which includes that of pest control and management. 

While reality shows are notorious for being sensationalized, what's true in both a reality show and real life is that the real estate negotiation process involves the buyer's due diligence which includes inspection. The aesthetic beauty of a home is worth as much as the diligence with which it is preserved. Thus, what is underneath and inside of a home cannot be overlooked. 

Termite Treatments Preserve The Value Of Real Estate

Our client expressed that they felt disheartened—the termite discovery felt like a setback against the exciting new chapter of their remodel. However, they realized the blessing in disguise as the termite damage would have been exacerbated if it hadn't been discovered, costing more to repair. Upon our arrival, they were assured that they were in the right hands, and that our work would help them resume their project swimmingly.

Termites are not uncommon in Laguna Beach and the rest of California, given the biodiversity in the state. The climate is conducive to the mating and reproductive habits of termite colonies throughout the year, so without inspection and preventative measures like BoraCare, any home is potentially at risk of being hit with the health and financial consequences of a termite infestation.

Termite & Dry Rot Removal Plus Preventative BoraCare

Termites initiate structural damage by infiltrating homes through soil, entrances, or small crevices. They feed on wood for its cellulose content, excreting moisture in the process, causing dry rot, which compromises the strength of the wood fibers. Dry rot can become unsanitary and airborne, posing risks to human health. Not only is it unsightly, but it also attracts other pests.

Our approach to extermination is unique to each client. We’ve treated plenty of prestigious properties, including a Spanish tile roof mansion, 5000 sq ft barn, and even the Department of Fish and Wildlife! We prioritize spot treatments and reserve tent fumigation as a last resort. Whenever possible, we utilize plant-based solutions like orange oil, which dissolves termite exoskeletons, effectively killing them. However, if we deem tent fumigation or chemical treatments as absolutely necessary, we will always recommend what would be the most suitable treatment in the best interests of our clients. Honesty is a hallmark of our service, and we allow you to decide on the final approach.

Our aim is to eliminate the termite colony entirely. Whether the treatment plan involves spot treatment or tent fumigation, chemically or organically, we design every treatment to get the job done entirely, even when other exterminators have failed with repeat treatments

Our Laguna Beach client asked us to not only eradicate the termites and remove the dry rot, but also pest-proof their remodel, given that the demolition had opened up access to all of the affected wood structures. BoraCare is the termite prevention gold standard, a borate salt solution that effectively repels termites from consuming wood structures for the life of the wood when professionally applied to exposed wood.

If you are preparing for a remodel or construction project, ask us about our Laguna Beach pest control solutions. We safely and effectively treat and prevent even the most difficult types of termites so that you can enjoy the fruits of your labor without worrying about termites destroying your home.

San Juan Capistrano Dry Rot Wood Replacement & Termite-Resistant Pressure Treatment

When it comes to repairing a damaged barn, the task can seem as daunting as trying to find a needle in a haystack!

But fear not! Calling a professional is an opportunity to save your property from collapse and prevent future damage. 

Natural Science Exterminating received a call in San Juan Capistrano for a 5000 sq ft barn that had dry rot on its beams. The beams needed to be cut and replaced as soon as possible, as the stability of the barn had been compromised, making it unsafe for use. Upon further inspection, we discovered that subterranean termites had infested underneath the property.

If your property has dry rot and pests, it can be both exterminated and restored through treatment by a licensed and experienced professional. We are proud to share how we successfully treated our client’s beautiful barn through a combination of termite extermination and wood replacement and pressure treatment. 

Do Termites Cause Dry Rot?

A common question is whether the wood has been damaged by termites or dry rot.

Dry rot is fungal decay in wood. Termites do not directly cause dry rot, however, they are attracted to the conditions of dry rot, and by their very nature, termites can create the conditions that allow dry rot to worsen. 

Termites consume cellulose, the plant fiber of wood. Seeking moisture, termites mostly feed on soft or decaying wood, while also maintaining their desired humidity level through digesting and nesting. Termites use their excretions (saliva and fecal matter) to build nests and mud tubes. Pre-existing moisture or moisture from the presence of termites can ultimately give rise to fungal growth. The fungi can penetrate wood more easily when it has already been weakened, leading to its decay.

Subterranean Termite Removal & Wood Pressure Treatment 

Tent fumigation or above ground spot treatments will not effectively remove subterranean termites, which infest the foundation and soil of the home. To exterminate subterranean termites, soil is injected with liquid insecticide, and the concrete or wood foundation is chemically treated through drilling. These treatments should only be performed by a licensed exterminator who is qualified to do so without causing contamination to various vents, ducts, and openings. 

Some properties in the United States are required to have pressure treated wood when the wood is close to or in contact with earth. Pressure treating wood involves pushing a preservative into the pores, creating a termite resistant chemical barrier. 

Combining Treatments For Dry Rot Termite Damage 

Is it possible to combine treatments that replace dry rotted wood, remove termites, and prevent termites?

Yes! Natural Science Exterminating specializes in performing pest control and prevention in conjunction with carpentry wood repair and replacement. Our combined skill set ensures that along with removing dry rot and repairing or replacing wood, we carefully inspect the property to identify all layers of possible damage and infestation. Speaking of layers, the carpentry process requires specialized expertise to work around any plumbing or wiring connections enclosed in the infested sites. If the presence of pests is detected, we are ready to eliminate every trace of infestation and prevent pests from invading again.

Natural Science Exterminating will remove infestations and treat damage altogether. During carpentry repair or replacement, we may discover and treat pests, which a typical carpenter will not be equipped for, as extermination calls for a licensed pest control professional. Occupants do not need to vacate the premises during the wood repair process. We do not paint the wood, however, we prime it to prepare for paint.

If left untreated, termite damage or dry rot can spread quickly, causing significant damage to your property. It is important to repair or replace damaged wood and remove the source of the damage as soon as possible to ensure safety.

Rodent Removal, Decontamination, and Insulation

No stone should be left unturned when removing pests. 

To ensure a truly pest-free and pest-proof home, hire a professional who will treat your home beyond the point of removal, also repairing damage and preventing future infestations. 

We are proud to share the success of a treatment we completed for a client who called us after another exterminator did not fully get the job done, allowing water damage to occur from a rat nest that soaked an area of the ceiling. In addition to removal, we decontaminated the attic, replaced the insulation, and sealed off all possibilities of rodent re-entry.

The work of the other previous exterminator did not deliver an ultimate solution because simply killing rodents is not enough to prevent them from coming back. Rodent removal should be followed by decontamination and insulation replacement in order to restore the health and safety of your home. 

Water damage in homes or buildings are enticing to rodents who love dark and humid crawl spaces, especially in colder areas and months. The presence of moisture allows walls, floors, and ceilings to be more easily penetrable. 

Once they are inside, rodents have no respect for your home. Rodents almost always leave excrement in insulation and on surfaces, contaminating the air that circulates your home. They’ll claim the space they take up, emitting feces and urine to mark their territory. The odor from their droppings provides guidance for them to navigate back to the space using their sense of smell.. 

Rodent contamination is hazardous and dangerous. The Centers For Disease Control and Prevention say that “certain diseases can spread from rodents to people through direct contact with infected rodents (for example, breathing in contaminated air, touching contaminated materials and then touching eyes, nose, or mouth, being bitten or scratched by an infected rodent, or eating food contaminated from an infected rodent).” Leptospirosis and hantavirus are infectious diseases that can spread from their bacteria. Their bodily fluids (blood, oil, feces, saliva, and urine) contain bacteria which can develop into mold and mildew, which can aggravate existing allergies and respiratory issues.  

Therefore, rodents and their traces must be removed to prevent them from finding their way back by following their territorial markings. Rodent decontamination also ensures that you, your family, and occupants of the house or building do not come into contact or exposure to the bacteria and illnesses that rodents carry. 

The damage that rodents cause to attic insulation has a directly negative impact on the efficacy of the insulation itself, which causes you to suffer from a lower degree of warmth and higher energy costs.

After removing the rodents and the rodent nest, we removed the infected insulation and replaced it with brand new pest control insulation. We sealed off all entries and openings to ensure that no new rodents would enter.

Natural Science Exterminating is qualified and licensed to sell and install specialized pest control insulation, which offers industry leading energy efficiency, fire retardation, and sound proofing. We offer installation for the only pest control insulation product on the market today with the Energy Star® label. Customers who choose to add this insulation to their homes are eligible for up to a $500 tax credit.

Huntington Beach Commercial Termite Treatment Success Story

Some places on Earth are extra special. Those places need to be protected at all costs. 

Huntington Beach is home to some of the most beautiful places to visit in the country. We received a call from a classic car parts store and warehouse with a beautiful 30-foot wood ceiling and a not-so-beautiful infestation of termites.

We’re proud to share our success story of how we exterminated all traces of infestation while ensuring that their property was protected in every possible way.

Before they discovered us at Natural Science Exterminating, our client received quotes of hundreds of thousands of dollars from companies that insisted on tent fumigation. However, spot treatment was all that was necessary to achieve maximum results, costing less than one third of those grandiose quotes. Our careful and thorough inspection determined that tent fumigation wasn’t what they needed, and therefore not what they should have been quoted for. 

The method of termite removal that should be applied depends on several factors, including the severity of the infestation. Each property must be carefully inspected prior in order to ensure that the correct method is applied. 

Why is it that property owners often get quoted for more expensive treatments than the type they actually need?

The simple purpose of a termite treatment is to kill the entirety of the termite colony, including their eggs. Most exterminators will indeed accomplish this…but at what cost, physically, financially, and environmentally? The dangerous truth about the pest control industry is that some companies prioritize profit over people. This may involve overblown quotes or misleading consultations by pest control professionals who deliberately and falsely exaggerate the extent of the issue in order to invoice you for the most expensive and hefty (yet unnecessary) service.

When considered holistically, exterminators should strive for the most effective degree of termite removal while prioritizing the health and safety of humans, pets, and plants, as well as the integrity of the property.

If you’ve seen our work and read our testimonials, you know that we go the distance in customer service and service quality, counting tent fumigation as our last resort. Tent fumigation is considered the most “absolute” method of removing termites, in that it can reach every nook and cranny through the controlled release of gaseous termiticide. However, tent fumigation can be excessive and unnecessary for localized infestations .

The best part about this success story is that our spot treatment left our client’s Huntington Beach property…spotless! We rented 3 different lifts and we covered all equipment, fenders, and product inventory. In addition to removing existing termites and their offspring through the spot treatment method, we then applied BoraCare treatment to prevent future termite invasions throughout the entire property.

All of our work was entirely completed within a single day, one in which the warehouse was not in operation. 

Tent fumigation and spot treatment should be applied to different types of infestations, which is why it takes an expert to identify the best solution. Call Natural Science Exterminating and one of our trained inspectors can give you a free assessment of all the possible options. We only use termite tenting as a last resort.

How To Choose A Pest Control Company

Pests may be unpleasant, but working with a pest control company doesn’t have to be. When it comes to your home, you need to know who you can trust to safely and effectively remove pests.

Guaranteed Pest Control 

Not all pest control companies are created equal. In fact, not all companies are licensed, even though they should be. Pest control businesses in California must obtain a license, which certifies that they have the required knowledge and skills to treat your home. Natural Science Exterminating is licensed and bonded for your protection. With our trained and experienced professionals, our work in your home is guaranteed.

Pest Control Appointments

Infestations should be treated as soon as you discover them to prevent the pests from contaminating and damaging your home. If you have bees or wasps, it is best to book an appointment for inspection and removal as soon as possible, given that their stinging nature poses health risks to you and your family. Termites cause billions of dollars worth of damage every year to properties across the United States by eating wood. Natural Science Exterminating is available within 24 hours for termites, bees, and wasps. 

If you would like to take preventative measures and book your appointments in advance, see which pest control companies have a reputation for commitment and punctuality. If you discover a pest control company that is fully booked weeks or months in advance, but has a reputation for missing appointments, it is best to look elsewhere. Natural Science Exterminating fulfills annual pest control contracts because we are confident in our commitment to keep your home pest-free all year round, and we have positive reviews to back it up.

Pest Control With Integrity

If something doesn’t feel right, listen to your gut. There are countless stories of pest control treatments gone bad. Big box retailers that offer pest control tend to appeal to homeowners by being an established, familiar entity that can offer discounts or coupons as introductory offers. But if their heart isn’t in the right place, their focus is profit—and not necessarily service quality. 

Small or local companies are a great alternative to nationwide chains, but do not base your decision solely on the basis that they aren’t corporate giants. Small businesses may lack oversight and compliance, with the owners or their employees treating properties without licenses or experience. Always choose a pest control company that is licensed, trained, and reputable.

Moreover, integrity means that the pest control company is honest in their inspection and treatment. Natural Science Exterminating is proud to be a company that will spot treat whenever possible, and tent fumigate as the last resort. Furthermore, while the pest control industry is notorious for unnecessary or excessive upsells, we do not attempt to treat more than necessary. 

Environmental Pest Control 

When it comes to pest control, some companies do not offer natural treatments as an option at all, whereas we put it right in our name. 

Natural Science Exterminating removes termites with a borate salt solution or orange oil, both of which are environmentally safe, effective, and approved by California law. We are also licensed to install Energy Star® certified insulation which provides homeowners with eligibility for a tax credit of up to $500. Moreover, this pest-resistant insulation is energy efficient, fire retardant, and sound-proofing.

If you have any questions about pest control inspection, treatment, or prevention, give a call today to see if we might be the right pest control company for you.

San Juan Capistrano Condo Pest Control Success Story

There’s a saying that goes: “when it rains, it pours.” Unfortunately, a property that has never been professionally treated before with pest control solutions is vulnerable to infestations, making it possible for more than one species to invade your property. 

We’re proud to share one such case of a success story of the extermination of several kinds of pests. 

Pest problems usually come as shocking discoveries to property owners. We’re ready to tackle almost any pest problem and get the job done, no matter how gnarly the situation may appear.

Our team at Natural Science Exterminating received a call from a condominium owner in San Juan Capistrano who was stunned to discover that their property was infested with rodents, roaches, and termites—right in the midst of remodeling!

Remodeling happens to be the perfect time to implement pest control solutions. Click here to learn why.

Rodent Extermination

Equipped with a keen sense of hearing, rodents can quickly make their presence unknown as soon as humans approach. However, some rodents aren’t concerned with hiding—they’ll engage in aggressive, confrontational standoffs, which can be highly dangerous. Rodents can infect humans with rabies, fleas, hantavirus, typhoid, and more through direct contact or food contamination.

In the search for food and shelter, rodents enter properties through the smallest of crevices. These entry holes must be professionally sealed to prevent them from entering. Rodent removal requires setting traps in already infested areas, and installing bait stations outside the property to lure them away entirely. 

Cockroach Extermination

​​Cockroaches love the spring and fall, as well as any environment abundant in moisture and decay. Roaches invade homes in search of food and damp spaces to lay their eggs. Cockroach reproduction must be professionally treated with growth regulators so that their eggs don’t hatch. Many property owners make the mistake of only treating the visible adult cockroaches, unaware of the new batch that is soon to emerge from their offspring. 

Termite Removal

Termites cause billions of dollars of damage every year across the United States by consuming just one type of material: cellulose. Wood and wood-based materials make up some structural component of almost every property. 

Tent fumigation (tenting a property and releasing gaseous termiticide within) is considered the most absolute method, as it affects the entire home and all of its nooks and crannies. 

However, our client’s termite infestation could not be treated with tent fumigation because the property was not a detached unit, but rather a condominium with shared walls.

Spot treatment is a localized solution that does not require tenting. Moreover, tent fumigation is an entirely chemical solution, whereas natural solutions, such as orange oil, are available for spot treatment. Following spot treatment, we pest-proofed the property by applying Bora-Care to the exposed wood. Bora-Care contains borate mineral salt and lasts the life of the wood, preventing it from becoming a food source. 

Remodels are the perfect window of opportunity to spot treat and apply Bora-Care, as the exposed wood is made physically accessible. 

Following our comprehensive treatment of rodents, cockroaches, and termites at this condominium, the owner was so impressed and pleased with our work that they decided to invest in an annual pest control contract to ensure that their property remains beautiful, safe, and pest-free all year round. 

Natural Science Exterminating is a family-owned business in Orange County with decades of pest control experience. We offer both natural and traditional treatments to rats, mice, termites, cockroaches, ants, spiders, wasps, bees, and other pests.

Pest-Proof Your Remodel

There is nothing more exciting than building something new. 

Whether you’re selling, flipping, or remodeling, transformation involves time, energy, and money—all in the hopes that your project will manifest what you had envisioned. 

If you want to build a home that lasts, pest management is just as important as the construction itself. Termites are pests that cause billions worth of damage to homes across the United States. The havoc they wreck is devastating because they consume cellulose-based materials by their very nature. It’s in their DNA to chew through the very material that many homes are built with.

A remodeling project is the perfect opportunity to implement pest management solutions, since drywall, appliances, and necessities to life will be out of the way. The interior structures and the foundation as well as any part of the property that is constructed of wood should be treated for termite prevention.

Bora-Care is a low toxicity solution of a borate salt that prevents termites, fungi, and rot. When it comes to termite prevention, Bora-Care must be applied directly to the wood in order to prevent it from becoming a food source. When professionally applied, Bora-Care can last for the life of the wood, protecting it from termite damage and preventing its deterioration.

If you’re planning to do demolitions and can’t wait to blast through the walls, tear up the floors, and drill through the ceiling, consider using this smashing opportunity to treat the exposed wood. 

For most of us, pest control is usually the last thing that comes to mind when planning a remodel. Admittedly, it isn’t the most glamorous subject. However, it is important to remember that termite prevention is what keeps your home beautiful, ensuring that all of the time, money, and effort you have invested will be preserved for years to come.

Remodels are the perfect window of opportunity to thoroughly treat the property beneath its surface. There aren’t really many instances in which the interior structure of a property needs to be exposed, other than for remodeling and, well, pest treatments.

Keep in mind that termite prevention treatments during a remodel are quite a different experience for property owners than when an incident arises and makes it apparent that extermination is necessary. Prevention is proactive, whereas reactions can be stressful—especially if the property was not adequately prepared for a pest invasion. It’s a lot easier to sit back and relax while a professional pest control company treats your home with preventative solutions, rather than being met with the shock horror of discovering an invading colony. 

Of all of the natural disasters that can cause serious damage to a property, pest infestations are one of the few emergencies that can be anticipated and prevented. 

Natural Science Exterminating creates customized plans to prevent pests from entering your property and subsequently causing structural damage. We work with the construction team of your home to ensure that Bora-Care is applied correctly so that you can move into your new home with peace of mind.

Pest Control Maintenance Plans Save Busy Homeowners Time And Money

California is the most biodiverse state in the United States. The beautiful and sunny state is the reason why so many tourists visit and residents live there. But they are not all—pests love it here too. 

California can be wet, dry, cold, or humid throughout the year. Insects tend to lay their eggs in the fall to incubate and hatch in the spring. The cold of the winter is what the insects try to escape by invading the indoors. The spring is when pest invasions are most intense, which is why homeowners should prepare their home with pest control in the winter prior. Many homeowners make the mistake of not preventing their homes from pests and resorting to last minute do-it-yourself treatments that are not effective at pest removal. 

Ants, Spiders, Fleas, Wasps, And Bees 

Seasonal changes affect the behaviors of insects, but pests can survive and reproduce all year—indoor or outdoor. Cockroaches seek food and water; they are the most active in the spring and fall, when there is the most moisture and decay. ​Wasps and bees are the most active in the summer, when colonies begin to ramp up construction of the nest. Spiders, fleas, ants, and other insects target homes in the fall and winter in an attempt to escape the cold. Ants hatch the highest number of eggs in the spring, which is why the winter is the best time to implement pest control before they hatch.

Ant Treatment

Ant colonies hide in places that most humans simply cannot see or get to. Which is why DIY ant treatments such as that insecticide spray from the home improvement store seems to work at first, but usually doesn't remove the entire colony. The problem is that ant colonies often build their nests out of sight or out of reach. Natural Science Exterminating professionals will carefully inspect your home to determine the source to remove the entire ant population and prevent them from coming back. 

There are over a dozen ant breeds in California. A few, like the fire ant, are more than a nuisance—they are a health hazard. Their painful bites and stings can be life-threatening. One of the best anti extermination methods is to provide the ants with a poisonous food source; the ants will either eat the substance as they find it, or they will bring the poison food back to their colony. This treatment is highly effective but requires that pets be kept away and pet food be stored away while the bait is in effect. Alternatively, natural ant extermination involves a granular bait that is released into the grass or soil whenever it rains or gets wet outside, targeting the ants and their nests.

Pest Control Contracts Help Busy Homeowner Save Time And Money

Given the biodiversity of California, pest control should be conducted year round. At Natural Science Exterminating, our annual contracts provide you and your home with comprehensive inspection, treatment, and prevention. Instead of anticipating what pests Mother Nature will bring into your home throughout the year and waiting to discover an infestation, early detection and treatment saves time and money in the long-run. It’s a proactive and stress-free treatment approach. 

Natural Science Exterminating is a family-owned business in Orange County with decades of pest control experience. We offer both natural and traditional treatments to ants, spiders, wasps, bees, fleas, and other pests.

How To Prevent Spiders From Entering Your Home

Houseplants have exploded in popularity. People are spending more time at home than ever before and picking up new hobbies and skills. The houseplant trend took social media by storm, with large communities on every major platform and a new type of influencer known as the “plantfluencer”. 


The benefits of houseplants include stress reduction and cleaner air. However, having plants in the home can pose the risk of attracting pests. Spiders are a very common household pest. While some people find them to be a small nuisance, others find them terrifying. 

How Dangerous Are Spiders?

Perhaps the most popular venomous spider is the black widow, identifiable by its black color and a red hourglass shape on her underside. 

The National Geographic reports that only a few out of the known 40,000 species of spiders can actually harm humans. A 2014 study in the Journal of Medical Entomology shows the "vast majority" of spiders found in fruits are harmless. 

If you come across a spider, do not panic, but at the same time, exercise caution. It is better to be safe than sorry. Do not touch the spider and call your local pest control immediately. In the case of an emergency, dial 911.

How Do Spiders Get Into The Home?

Spiders may crawl into your home when it gets too hot or too cold outside. Extreme weather conditions can lead spiders to seek refuge inside of your home, getting in through windows, doors, holes, the smallest of cracks, or any open space. They are especially active during mating season and may lay eggs in items you bring indoors. Food, especially fruits, and water can attract spiders into your home. They like to be in moist environments, which is why you will most commonly find webs in your bathroom or basement. 

Spider Repellent and Traps

Essential oils, especially peppermint oil, are a highly effective form of natural spider repellant. Fill a spray bottle with cold water and fifteen to twenty drops of peppermint oil and shake it and then spray onto floors, corners, cracks, and window frames. 

Nonetheless, spiders can still find their way in. Non-toxic sticky traps are an easy way to trap spiders. Leave the sticky trap in common crawl spaces, and once they crawl onto it, they will get stuck by the adhesive.

Spider Pest Control

It is best to call professional pest control services if you see or suspect a spider infestation. Even if a spider is not venomous, they may weave unsightly spider webs around your house, or find a mate to lay and hatch eggs with. A spider colony can be very uncomfortable and even unhygienic to live with. 

Natural Science Exterminating is a family owned business in Orange County with decades of pest control experience. We offer both natural and traditional treatments to spiders, bees, termites, rats, and other pests. In the event that a spider or pest is threatening your health, family, or property, we are available for emergency pest control. You can count us to remove spiders from your home safely and effectively.
