Commercial Pest Control In Van Nuys, CA

The best solution for commercial pest control care is an IPM-based, scientific approach that puts natural solutions first. When Integrated Pest Management is used, your business will be in compliance with all government regulations. You'll also have sustainable pest management you can trust. Here are a few of the smart ways we solve pest management issues with science:

  • Exclusions - It might not seem like a big deal but sealing potential entry points does more than create a physical barrier that pests have a harder time getting past. When we seal entry points, it removes an attractant that actually invites pests to get into your business. Many pests are thigmotactic, which means they're motivated by touch. They like to be squeezed into tight spaces.

  • De-webbing - Removing webs around your business does more than improve your curb appeal. Spider webs can have egg sacs on them and some spider species can have 400 eggs in one sac. That's a lot of spiders waiting to hatch!

  • Bait - We know what pests eat and we use this knowledge to select appropriate baits. Proper bait selection is essential for effective control of targeted pests, but it is also needed for the general management of all pests in key zones.

These are only some of the ways our pest management professionals use their education and specialized training to get our customers the best results possible. If you have questions, reach out to us through our contact page to schedule a consultation.

Here's Why Do-It-Yourself Rodent Control Fails In Van Nuys Homes

Along with providing industry-leading pest control service to our customers, we guide our customers in understanding their pest problems. A topic that comes up quite often is this one: why are rodents so difficult to control? The answer is that they're not generally difficult to control for trained and experienced pest professionals. The trouble comes when folks try to handle rodent control on their own.

Here are a few reasons why DIY rodent control falls short:

  • Rodents have poor eyesight and will use their senses of touch, smell, and hearing in order to navigate. These senses are highly tuned. If you place traps in an open space, mice and rats may never come in contact with them. They stay near walls or close to objects they can touch. If you handle traps with your bare hands, rodents may avoid them because they can smell your scent on them. If you put traps in a location where there is a lot of activity, rodents can hear those sounds and may avoid the area.

  • Rodents are smart. If they figure out that an object in their environment is dangerous, they'll avoid it. We refer to this as being trap shy.

  • Rodents are fast. They're known to spring traps without being harmed.

If trapping is needed, contact Excel Pest Management for our rodent control service. Our pest-management professionals use advanced technologies and field-tested methods to outsmart rodents.

What Van Nuys Residents Ought To Know About Effective Spider Control

Spider control is simple if you know how spiders behave. Here is everything you could ever want to know about spider control:

  • Spiders eat insects, bugs, and small critters. Reduce the number of these and you'll reduce spider activity.

  • Before spiders get into your home, they hang out near your home. You can alter conditions near your home to make them less inviting to spiders, such as reducing moisture, removing leaves, and moving stacked wood away from your exterior.

  • Spiders get into your home by accident. If you use a caulking gun to seal holes and gaps and replace protective building materials such as weatherstripping, door sweeps, and screens, this will go a long way toward keeping spiders out.

  • Remove spider webs and wipe down areas where spiders create webs. Doing this may remove egg sacs with hundreds of spiders in them, and also deter spiders from creating webs.

That's all you need to know. If you don't have time to deal with spiders, remember that de-webbing and spider management are included with year-round pest control. Reach out to Excel Pest Management for pest control in Van Nuys.
