Insects are always going to be in San Diego, California, but that doesn’t mean they need to establish a presence in YOUR office space. Whether you run a school, office or restaurant, keeping pests to a minimum is crucial to the continued success of your day to day business. In the old days, a customer who saw a rat in your hallway or a cockroach in your kitchen might tell a few friends about it. Today, hundreds of people could read their full report on Yelp or Google+. Don’t take that chance! Get rid of pests and keep your reputation standing.

Pest control issues affect some companies more than others, but every business has unique problems that deserve a targeted solution. Unfortunately, in the rush to get rid of unwanted pests, many owners make strategic mistakes in exterminating pests.

  • Can’t find the pest nest
  • Using the wrong products, wasting money and potentially endangering the health of clients.
  • Failing to see the bigger problem, which may include a pest control prevention plan to keep the building pest free and ready to pass health inspections.

In San Diego, CA the roof rat prefers gutters, power lines and beams, but if it’s necessary, they will burrow. Cold weather will drive them inside, where they may live for several years. Another pest that can carry disease is the cockroach. Roaches can live in any home or business not protected by professional pest control for years. They carry streptococcus, salmonella, dysentery, E. coli, hepatitis B, cholera, and plague. The most common roach species in Southern California are the American and Oriental roaches, and the smaller Brown-banded and German roaches.  Powderpost beetles and carpenter ants can cause damage to structures, but termites are the biggest threat to property owners in warm climates like San Diego.


Get rid of these pests before they have a chance to establish themselves and eat their way through your building and furnishings as the weather warms up. If you are in San Diego, California and are needing a professional exterminator, call Lloyd Pest Control today.
