If we gave you a pen and a piece of paper, how many pests could you name (or at least describe) that you have had to deal with within your home? How long would that list be? Our guess is that pests are a regularly occurring problem for you. Don’t worry, they are a regularly occurring problem for most homeowners. But we are here to help. Do you want to find out how you can maintain a pest-free home here in Santa Clara County year-round? Let us show you.

Common Pests Around Santa Clara County

Pests come in many different shapes and sizes here in Santa Clara County. They can be split into three categories, destructive pests, dangerous pests, and nuisance pests. Some pests belong to all three. Let us take a moment to break down these three categories.

Nuisance Pests: Nuisance pests are pests that drive you crazy. It’s the fly buzzing around your head while you are trying to watch TV, the ants on your counter stealing bits of your pie, or the centipede that catches you off guard in the bathroom. Many nuisance pests pose no direct risk to you or your family, but that doesn’t change your desire to see them gone.

Destructive Pests: Many pests are biologically equipped with tools to destroy your home. Pests like termites and carpenter ants have the ability to tunnel through the wood of your home, slowly destroying it from the inside out. Other pests like rodents can chew through electrical wiring, utility piping, and air conditioner units, causing extensive damage in areas you cannot see.

Dangerous Pests: These are the pests you should be most worried about. On top of the list, there are rodents, cockroaches, mosquitoes and fleas. These pests can carry dangerous diseases that when spread through your home can put you and your family at risk. On the other side of the spectrum, there are biting and stinging pests such as wasps and dangerous spiders. Although the effects of these pests are not usually as devastating as contracting a dangerous disease, their stings and bites can still be rather painful and unpleasant.

How Often Should You Do Pest Control?

Everyone has done something to deal with pests at one point or another. Whether it is buying a bug zapper for mosquitoes, or sticky strips for ants. Chances are you have been looking for the best way to handle pests for a long time. The problem is, with so many different pests, there doesn’t seem to be an easy solution. Because of this, you find yourself fighting pests one at a time. Rodents invade and you buy lots of traps. You find cockroaches in your basement so you spray store-bought cockroach killer. Every new pest demands a new solution, and despite picking and choosing your battles, it doesn’t seem like victory is in sight.
