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.
Living in the Temecula and Fallbrook areas has many perks—we have great weather pretty much year round, there are great schools here, and we have easy access to some of the best beaches in the world, just to name a few. There really aren’t many downsides to living in this area.
Nobody wants to tent their house for termites—nobody. Most people we know would much rather spend their home improvement dollars on things that beautify or add value to their homes, but when you have a termite infestation, it must be done. If not, the problem will only get worse over time, causing costly damage or even compromising the structural integrity of your home.

As a pest control company serving Fallbrook homeowners and business owners, we’ve been told over the years that it can be difficult to find a company that will provide consistently good service in the area. This could be because the other pest control companies providing service in Fallbrook are located quite far away and the residents and business owners in Fallbrook only make up a small portion of their overall business.
Now that we’re in the hottest part of the year in the Temecula, Murrieta, and Fallbrook areas, you may be noticing more ant activity at your home or business. Why is this? Ants, like humans, like comfortable temperatures. If it’s too cold out, they’ll look for someplace warmer to hang out. If it’s extremely hot outside, they’ll try to find a place to hang out that’s cooler.
A couple of months ago, we talked in our blog about garden pests, such as gophers, rabbits, and moles. Moles aren’t terribly prevalent in the Temecula, Murrieta, and Fallbrook areas, but if they do find their way onto your property, they can do a ton of damage to your yard or garden before you know it!
Last month on our blog, we talked about the different levels of toxicity in pest control products (Danger, Warning, and Caution). The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) regulates pest control products and categorizes them based on how harmful they are if ingested, or if they get on your skin or in your eyes. Every product used by pest control companies is put in one of three categories, so technicians and consumers can compare “apples to apples” when it comes to toxicity levels. [Read more…]
