Common Pest Issues We Treat in San Tan Valley

Common types of pests we treat in the area include:

  • Ants

  • Scorpions

  • Cockroaches

  • Crickets

  • Termites

Ant Control in San Tan Valley

Ants are one of the most common pests around. They are social insects, which means that they live and travel with their colonies. Ants are known by homeowners everywhere for invading countless kitchens and putting quite a damper on summer BBQs! After hibernating underground all winter, ants are ready to escape their nests and eat come springtime. Leaving trails of scent, ants guide hundreds or even thousands of soldiers from their colonies to their chosen source of food.

To prevent an ant invasion in your home, you need to:

  • Avoid leaving cat or dog food outside

  • Keep all food in airtight containers

  • Avoid leaving leftover food sitting on the counter for too long

  • Clean up and food or drink spills right away

  • Keep floors swept and mopped

San Tan Valley Cockroach Control

It is said that for every cockroach you find in your home during the day, there are thousands more hiding behind the walls. While many people assume that they only inhabit extremely dirty homes, they actually will make their way into any home that can provide them with food, shelter, warmth, and water.

These critters are able to make their way inside a home by traveling:

  • Through drains and sewers

  • On grocery bags, luggage, or furniture

  • Through screen doors or open windows

  • Through the space between a door and the floor

  • Along plumbing pipes

Once inside, they tend to prefer hiding in cracks and crevices, behind walls, near food storage areas, under sinks, and other dark hiding places.

Termite Control in San Tan Valley

Costing billions of dollars’ worth of damage each year, termites are every homeowner’s worst nightmare. Since they are often hidden away within the structure of a home, they can be there for years before a homeowner finally discovers them. The three types of termites are subterranean, drywood, and dampwood. All in search of wood, termites have the potential to cause extensive, irreversible damage to your home.

Things that attract termites include:

  • Excess foliage

  • Piles of wood

  • Dead or decaying trees

  • Mulch

  • Cellulose material

  • Clogged gutters

  • Warm, dark places

  • Moist soil

If you notice winged ants, mud tubes, wings that have been shed, or structural damage to your home, you might be facing a termite infestation.

Bark Scorpion Removal in San Tan Valley

Bark scorpions like homes and other buildings that border underdeveloped desert.

These habits make homes in San Tan especially vulnerable to bark scorpions in all kinds of indoor and outdoor materials. They often hide in nooks and crannies inside or hide in concrete block walls or river rock yard decorations. Sometimes hundreds of bark scorpions hide in a single fence!

The bark scorpion has a painful sting, with babies often delivering the most potent stings. Their stings aren’t usually dangerous to older children or healthy adults.

Bark scorpions are seen throughout the San Tan region, especially in those areas with less development. Activity occurs during the summer or after a rain. In San Tan, we see the most bark scorpion activity in homes near the border of the Sonoran Desert in the Southwest.

San Tan Valley Cricket Control

House crickets are the most common cricket species in San Tan year round. They can survive on many types of food, making almost any environment a good one for them.

In addition to their annoying chirping, crickets serve as a food source for more dangerous pests like spiders and scorpions. Crickets like to hide in clutter including rocks, boxes, unkempt landscaping, and other types of debris.

To keep crickets away from your home, there are several precautions you can take. These include:

  • Seal any cracks or holes along the foundation of your home

  • Clear away excess debris, such as leaves, from your yard

  • Keep piles of wood off the ground and away from your home

  • Install yellow bug lights around your home to keep crickets away

  • Make sure your attic is well ventilated

We see a lot of crickets in San Tan around N Gantzel Road, in the center of town, and to the north of E Ocotillo Road.
