Common Pests in Northern California

Ant sitting on the ground


The National Pest Management Association or NPMA have named ants as Americas #1 nuisance pest, and it's for good reason as they are everywhere here in Northern California. 

Among the most common ants found in our home state are the Argentine Ant, Carpenter Ant, Odorous House Ant, and the Pharaoh Ant. Our approach to ridding your home of an established ant issue begins with interviewing our customers to learn further about what they have been experiencing due to the ant infestation as well as to hear out their concerns. Following that, our ant exterminators in San Francisco perform a full inspection around the exterior of the home to identify the source of the ant infestation and identify the best method of treatment for each customer.

Bed Bugs

Carpet Beetles

Finding a carpet beetle inside your home can cause reason for concern. These pests are known to destroy carpets, rugs, upholstered furniture, clothing and other fabrics. We offer solutions to eliminate carpet beetles from within your home as well as offer year-round protection from the exterior of the home.


earwig on leaf

Although they have a bit of an intimidating appearance, earwigs are not poisonous nor do they spread disease. Earwigs tend to hide around mulch, rocks and other organic debris around the exterior of the home. However, due to a multitude of attractive conditions within the home, earwigs will occasionally look to make their way inside. We offer eco-friendly interior and exterior pest control treatments and recommend year-round treatment of the exterior to prevent these pests from entering your home.


flea on fabric

The key to successfully solving a flea issue is to first identify a source. A majority of the time fleas are introduced to the home from wildlife and rodents around the property. It is not uncommon to find that fleas were introduced into the home by a skunk under the deck, rodents in the attic, or sub-area or from deers wandering around the property. 

Our solution to approaching flea issues is to identify the source of the issue than to treat the home. Identifying the source of the issue may mean performing some exclusion work to prevent rodents, skunks, or other wildlife from entering the home or routinely performing treatments around the exterior of the home for year-round protection.



Silverfish are one of the most common pests found around the home. They are attracted to moisture, warmth, and dark areas. 

While they're not poisonous, Silverfish tend to feed on books, clothing, paper, cereals, and cardboard. Don’t allow Silverfish to damage your belongings. We can help eliminate them from within your home as well as provide strategic solutions to preventing future occurrences.

Although they play a role in our ecosystem, coming across spiders and spider webs around your home can create an unsettling feeling. We offer personalized pest control services for our customers to protect their homes from spiders year-round utilizing the most effective and environmentally friendly solutions.


tick on leaf

Like fleas, ticks are normally introduced to your home by wildlife or even pets. Ticks are generally found in the foliage around the property, in piles of leaves, bushes, under trees, and other shady areas. 

Ticks have been associated with Lyme disease making it crucial to keep them away from the home. If you live in a woodsy area or in the country, we recommend your-round treatment to protect your home, your family, and your pets.
