Our phones have been ringing off the hook this week with Rodent Issues around the entire Bay Area. Not only do Rodents carry diseases themselves but they can also play host to parasitic insects that transmit disease. For more information on the diseases rodents carry please refer to this link http://www.cdc.gov/rodents/diseases/direct.html
My experience with this company was great. They were able to schedule an appointment the day after I called. The scheduler gave me a 2-hour window and the tech arrived right in the middle. Guillermo (Mo) was quick, efficient, knowledgeable, and thorough. He answered all my questions and didn't try to up-sell me on services...
Pigeons may seem like little more than a minor inconvenience, but in actuality they can pose a variety of dangerous health risks. For example, pigeons can negatively impact your home. Their feathers can make their way into your air vents, gutters, pipes, and chimneys, causing blockages and other damages. They can also pose a health and safety risk by spreading a variety of diseases through their fecal waste. Pigeon droppings can also pose a slip and fall liability, when waste is found outside of storefronts or buildings. Because pigeons play host to a variety of other pests, including mites, lice, and more, they can also spread infestations.
To deal with a pigeon problem, contact Premier Rodent Proofing. Our experienced and professional team can identify and eliminate points of potential pest entry. Call us today at (925) 417-0900 to learn more about our full range of service offerings.
As enjoyable as birds can be outside our home, bird infestations inside our homes can be nothing but a nuisance. Unfortunately, it doesn’t take a physical bird in your house to suffer an infestation. Bird mites, or the tiny parasites carried by birds, can enter the homes of individuals with bird nests on or around their house or in residencies that have not been properly bird proofed. Once a bird mite’s bird host is gone, they will readily bite humans and can cause a host of symptoms. Read on for information about this bothersome pest.
Bird mites most commonly reside in bedrooms or bathrooms, but can infest other rooms. They may also inhabit the carpeting, bedding, or furniture of your home.
Symptoms of a bird mite infestation can include frequent itchiness and the vague sensation that something is crawling on your skin. You may also notice small bites or lesions that heal very slowly. Because bird mites are most active at night, you may see an increase in your symptoms at night or in humid weather.
The most effective way to prevent bird mites from entering your home is to work with a bird proofing specialist to identify and eliminate potential points of vulnerability. In the meantime, remove any empty nests on, near, or around your home. Also, be sure to check your home’s exterior for any crevices that may appear inviting to birds looking for nesting spots. You can also spray an insecticide designed to deter bird mites around your home’s doorways and window sills.
If you do have a bird mite outbreak, contact a pest-control specialist to help eliminate your infestation. Use Borax on your carpet to kill any mites that may have taken up residence there, wash any potentially impacted bedding, and wiped down all hard surfaces with a combination of Borax and dish soap.

While poison may be an effective tool for eliminating pests, it can also be extremely dangerous to your loved ones. Pets are particularly vulnerable to pest poisons through accidental ingestion.
Unfortunately, consuming rat bait poisoning can be fatal to your dog or cat. If you notice obvious external bleeding from your pet’s eyes, nose, or mouth, bloody feces, excessive thirst, or lethargy, contact your veterinarian immediately. You should also gather a sample of any pesticides your pet may have had access to aid in diagnosis and treatment. To learn more about pest poisoning and how it can impact your pets, watch this short video.
