Pest Control Treatments Offered by MightyMite Termite Services:
Argentine Ants and Odorous House Ants are one of the most common pest issues in and around the Bay Area. In normal circumstances, a colony may send out a series of “scout” ants to locate a food or water source. These “scout” ants will then leave a pheromone trail back to the main colony so other ants can find their newly found resources. When the rest of the colony follows the pheromone trail to the food or water source, they create the ant trails that are commonly known to homeowners. Keeping a thoroughly clean home, free of food debris and other commonly sought out materials preferred by a colony can prevent future infestations. Most ant infestations can be controlled with a recurring pest control service which will offer your home an invisible barrier against the outside world. Contact MighytMite Termite Services today to set up your free home inspection to keep these invasive pests away from you and your family.
While many species of spiders are harmless, most property owners should try to minimize the risk of contact with these nuisance pests. There are many misnomers regarding spiders, and how harmful they can be if bitten. Of course, a certain level of precaution is necessary when dealing with such creepy crawlies. Spiders in general are excellent hunters and can help with regulating the other insect levels in and around your home, however, there are times when you should look to maintain control of a spider population. MightyMite Termite Services’ year-round pest control program will rid your home of these unwanted 8-legged pests through a series of regularly scheduled services. Included in our year-round services, is a dewebbing of the exterior of your home to discourage future infestation and to help with the aesthetics of your home along the way.

Rats and Mice
Nothing is for sure in life, but if you live in the Bay Area, it is more than likely you or someone you know have/ had a rodent infestation in your home. There are a number of reasons why you may have a rodent infestation. These reasons may include accessibility, cleanliness, optimal living conditions for them, and other factors. Once a colony has made its way into your home, rodents can multiply fast and will eventually cause damage to your insulation, sheetrock, electrical system, water supply, and can even cause mites to infest your home. Every rodent infestation is handled as a customized service when your rodent control program is designed by MightyMite Termite Services. In some cases, trapping may be necessary, whereas other situations will require a baiting program, or depending on the state of your home we may recommend sealing your home from outside intruders. Contact MightyMite Termite Services today to schedule your free rodent assessment, before they cause any severe damage to your home.
Springtime in the Bay Area brings warm weather, outdoor activities, chirping birds, and jumping fleas. That’s right. Fleas are very common in and around the bay area in the spring and summer time. And a common misconception is that if you don’t own pets, you can’t get fleas. More times than not, fleas will accumulate at the top of long grasses, shrubs, or tree branches and wait for an unsuspecting host to walk by and they will jump on to catch a ride to their next home. As we become more active outdoors, the flea infestations start to spread through the bay area like a wildfire. By the time most homeowners show signs of being bitten, the fleas have already infested their homes. Normally, flea bites will first appear around your ankles, waste line, or other areas on your body where tight clothes are normally worn. During this time of the year, it is recommended to wear white socks when venturing outdoors, so when you remove your shoes when you return home, fleas are easier seen on your body prior to entering your home.
Flea control will commonly require 2 treatments to gain control of an active flea issue. The initial treatment will knock down the existing infestation, and a follow up visit approximately 2 weeks after the first service will eliminate any fleas that have hatched from the eggs they have laid throughout your home, before they have an opportunity to create the next generation. If you suspect your home has been taken over by these pests, contact MightyMite Termite Services today to rid yourself of these jumping, biting, annoying pests. Our year-round general pest control program will help prevent future infestations in and around your home.
Earwigs A.K.A “Pincher Bugs”
Earwigs are lawn and garden destroying pests that harbor in dark areas of your home and garden. Most of the time these pests can be found around moist areas of landscaping, compost bins, potted plants, exterior personal storage, and debris on the outside of your home. While Earwigs do not normally present a danger to humans, they can eat away at plant roots and destroy expensive landscaping around your home. Earwigs can also amplify the effects of dryrot found in your home, by storing soil and fecal matter in the damaged areas. Once the damaged wood members become decomposed, the earwigs will also eat away at the organic material, which can cause additional damage to your home.

In the Bay Area, there are primarily 2 different kinds of roaches (Oriental and German).
Oriental roaches are commonly referred to as water beetles and are large insects attracted to water sources. Normally, control of Oriental roaches can be obtained by eliminating moisture conditions on the exterior of a structure and creating an invisible chemical barrier between your home and the outside world.
German roaches are normally associated with cleanliness, harborage areas, moisture conditions, along with many other circumstances. German roaches tend to be found inside of commercial kitchens, however, they can be found in residential homes. Common areas where you may find German roaches in a residential home include but are not limited to: kitchen, bathrooms, electronics, and behind hanging picture frames. Every service for German roaches should be customized to the individual infestation. There is no uniform treatment that matches everyone’s needs. Contact MightyMite Termite Services today for a thorough evaluation of your home to ensure these disease carrying pests are not living in your house rent free.
*Crick *Crick *Chirp *Chirp…. Unfortunately, if you hear this noise, you more than likely have a cricket somewhere in your home. They will usually harbor around moist heat sources such as your refrigerator, water heater, or washing machine. Finding the one cricket in your home is borderline impossible, but an infestation can easily be prevented with a routine year-round pest control program designed by MightyMite Termite Services. Contact us today to help you not lose sleep over the random noises created by this nuisance pest.
Spring and Summer time in the Bay Area brings out these dangerous, hive minded pests. On residential homes, they will normally set up “golf ball sized” nests around your roof eaves. They are more docile in the morning and evening, however, become quite aggressive during the day. Out of all of the general pests homeowners deal with in our area, this is the one which can cause serious injury if not dealt with by a professional.
Millipedes and Centipedes
Millipedes and Centipedes are very common in the Bay Area. Outside of just being a standard pest we deal with on a daily basis, these multi-legged critters do not present a threat to you, your pets, or your home. In general, most homeowners will contact a pest control company to eliminate them because they are unsightly. To prevent infestations of millipedes and centipedes, attempt to eliminate dark and damp areas around your home and garden. This will deter them from finding harborage near your home. To eliminate an active infestation of these creepy crawlies, contact MightyMite Termite Services for a free estimate.
Through proper treatment of the nest, removal of the nest, and routinely scheduled pest control service MightyMite Termite Services can eliminate and help prevent infestations. Contact MightyMite Termite Services today to get the buzz about wasps.
