When these insects are removed effectively, there is a far smaller chance that the infestation will reoccur. Here is a sample of some of the pests that we specialize in.
Ants are highly social insects that live in ant colonies which are usually located in the ground. Ants often enter buildings in search of shelter, water and food. Ants are not picky eaters and will feed on every kind of food. When entering homes, they are most looking for sweets and protein based substances of which there are aplenty. The most commonly encountered ground nesting ants found in Southern California are the Argentine Ant, Fire Ant, Little Black Ant, Pavement Ant and Velvety Tree Ant. We customize our treatment methods according to the extent of the infestation, species of ant and other determining factors. CLICK HERE TO LEARN MORE
In Southern California, we are unlucky enough to have several termite species invading our homes and businesses. The most prevalent termite species found here is the drywood termite species that create galleries in walls, garages and attics of structures as well as other wood sources such as utility poles, stored lumber and dead trees. Subterranean termites are also found building their nests in the soil and forming mud tubes up through the foundation of buildings and causing extensive damage. Formosan termites are also referred to as super termites due to their large size and destructive habits in consuming wood at an alarmingly fast rate. Dampwood termites thrive in moist conditions and can be found in areas close to the beach we well as homes that have moisture problems and also tree stumps. CLICK HERE TO LEARN MORE

Fleas affect more than your pets. When your home is infested with fleas, they can start to feed off humans as well when your pets don’t provide an adequate food source. Often, over the counter products don’t do a thorough job in removing fleas from your home. Upon inspection, the experts at Animal Pest Management Services, Inc. can completely eradicate any flea population and any lingering eggs.
Not only are flies a nuisance, but they carry a long list of diseases as well. These diseases are transmitted to your food and other surfaces that they land on. Our team of trained technicians will be able to identify the species we are working with, and then choose the control method. While many flies look alike, the methods used to control them can be quite different.
Pantry Pest Control
Common pantry pests include: beetles, moths and weevils. They are commonly brought into your home in your flour, oatmeal, cereal and other dried foods. These pests have specially designed mouthparts that can chew through most packaging that your food comes in. They end up contaminating and ruining any food that they touch. At Animal Pest Management Services, Inc. we know how to help you avoid any of these pests and stop any further spreading.
Occasional Invader Control
Our team of highly-trained technicians are constantly on the defense for pests like ants, cockroaches and flies. However, sometimes there is a need to get rid of insects that don’t normally cause problems like crickets, silverfish and earwigs. While these pests don’t cause an immediate threat to humans, no one wants to see them crawling around and lurking in the corners.
