Termites have been around since the time of the dinosaurs, and they are surprisingly resilient insects. A termite’s life cycle begins with a mating flight, when swarming winged reproductive males and females leave the colony to procreate. After their eggs have been fertilized, winged termites actually come to the ground and shed their wings. The newly wingless insects then become the queen or king of their new colonies as their eggs hatch. Termite larvae grow into workers, soldiers, and reproductive termites.
Have you seen shed termite wings near your LA area property? If you have seen signs of termites, it’s important to contact an exterminator immediately before the insects can inflict further damage. At Pacific Coast Termite, our exterminators will recommend a variety of customized termite treatments, including maximum-impact orange oil and green termite treatments.

If you are like most California residents, your largest investment and most important asset is your home. Unfortunately, homeowners who fail to take proper termite control measures are sometimes faced with thousands of dollars in damage to their property before they even realize they have a termite infestation. Here is why you should contact an exterminator to inspect your home and recommend preventative treatment measures:
More and more homeowners are taking preventative steps to eliminate termite colonies before they start. A professional termite inspection ensures that your entire property is safe. From your exterior walls to your attic to your basement crawlspace, your exterminator will cover every square inch of your home. Green termite treatments are also available to safely ward off future infestations while keeping your home free of harmful chemicals.
A single termite colony can contain thousands of insects. With each termite consuming pounds of food per year, a colony of termites can slowly eat away at your home’s structure and may even eventually cause the building to collapse. Termites not only affect your home, they also eat away at valuable wooden furniture and antiques.
A termite infestation can decrease the value of your home, even if you have the entire property thoroughly treated by an experienced exterminator. Sellers are obligated to disclose any former instance of termites to all prospective buyers, and it is standard practice for interested parties to request a comprehensive termite inspection. If you plan to sell your home at any point in the future, maintain its value by getting proactive about termite treatment.

Did you know that simply breathing in rodent droppings can seriously affect your health? Watch this video to find out why you should hire an exterminator at the first sign of rodents.
Recently, two visitors to a California park died after their hike took them near rodent droppings infected with Hantavirus. This disease is linked to both rats and field mice and is almost always passed through pest droppings. Most Hantavirus cases occur in rural areas, but experts say this illness can just as easily be present in an urban garage or shed.
Most people know that termites can completely decimate a wooden structure within just weeks. But did you know that rodents can also inflict major structural damage on your home? Mice and rats often chew through insulation, pipes, and even car wires. To find out more about the health risks and property damage that rodents bring, take a look at this overview:
If you have a rodent control problem, your home is likely also littered with droppings from mice and rats. Unfortunately, rodent feces can spread bacteria and trigger allergic reactions in humans. Rodents also carry a wide range of dangerous diseases and viruses, including Hantavirus. Hantavirus is a potentially life-threatening illness transmitted by infected rodent urine and droppings. Rats may even carry the Bubonic Plague.
Rats and mice may be small, but they can inflict serious damage to your home in a relatively short amount of time. Mice and rats often use their sharp teeth to chew through your home’s interior and exterior walls, wiring, and insulation. Rodents in your garage can even chew through your car’s expensive wiring system!
In addition to severe structural damage, rodents can completely destroy your food supply and damage your home’s entry points and exterior walls. If you have seen food packages with the corners chewed off, small holes on your exterior walls and damaged gaps around windows and doors, or rodent droppings in your cupboards or garage, it’s time to call an exterminator. A rodent control expert can help you seal off entry points and clean up any mess.
