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.
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.
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.
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.
