Last month, we wrote about how Knockout Pest Control offers termite inspections in Murrieta and Temecula. We would be remiss if we didn’t mention that we also do termite inspections in Fallbrook. In fact, our shop is located right in between Temecula and Fallbrook (in Rainbow), making it easy to service the residents of Fallbrook as well as those in the Temecula Valley.

No homeowners want to hear that their house has termites. Those small bugs certainly do a lot of costly damage to a home if they aren’t taken care of quickly. They can damage the wood structures within your home, causing them to need to be repaired or replaced.
It’s been a while since we’ve highlighted a customer review, so we wanted to share with you a comment we received recently from a customer named David.

Technician was polite, took Covid precautions, and arrived on time.”
In Temecula, most of the pest problems homeowners and business owners tend to experience have to do with insects and spiders. Most of our clients for whom we provide regular pest control service hire us to keep their homes and businesses free from things like ants, spiders of all types, and cockroaches. However, some of our clients also need rodent control—especially those who live in the more rural areas of Temecula.
Doing pest control well in Temecula is no easy task! We have our share of stubborn pests here, such as ants, spiders, and a variety of rodents.

The pests common to the Temecula, Murrieta, and Fallbrook areas are relentless—especially the ants! If you’ve lived here for any length of time, you’ve likely experienced at least one ant infestation. You probably have some sort of pest control spray in your house for the next time you spot the infamous ant trail going from the outside of your home into your kitchen. They seem to always show up at the most inopportune times—like when you’re on vacation or when you’re about to have company over.
If you’ve lived in Temecula for any length of time, you’ve likely seen a lot of different trucks and vans driving around town advertising pest control services. Some are from the larger national pest control franchises, while others are locally owned and operated small businesses. It can be tempting to call one of the well-known names in pest control, but that’s not always the best route.
As a pest control company, we took a special interest in the news story that emerged last year about the arrival in the United States of the so-called “murder hornets.” It was one of the many sensational events that seemed to characterize the year 2020. However, almost as soon as the story showed up in news cycles, it then disappeared, leaving many people to wonder, “What ever happened to the murder hornets? Are they still here? Should I be worried?”
As waves of the Coronavirus outbreak come and go in Temecula and Murrieta, businesses are constantly opening and closing. In addition, some are opened in a limited capacity and some have been forced to close their doors permanently. It can be difficult to determine which businesses are currently serving customers and which aren’t—especially because websites are not always up-to-date.
