Everything You Need for a Pest-Free Home
If you’ve never dealt with a pest infestation in your home, consider yourself lucky. Most people will deal with unwanted bugs and insects at some point. While we share our environment with wildlife, insects, and other creatures, sharing our living space is another matter entirely.

Common Household Pests
Because California weather is generally temperate, we have a lot of bugs and wildlife that make their homes here. While we have a relatively long bug season, extending from late February through October, we also have a high number of year-round pests with which to contend. We do our best to keep them out of our homes, but sometimes they still find their way in, despite our best efforts.
Some of the most common pests in the Bakersfield area include:
Ants and rodents come inside looking for food and water. You will often find evidence of them in kitchens and pantries. Both ants and rodents can cause food poisoning and other illnesses. You should keep your food containers sealed and clean up any food waste and garbage as soon as possible to deter them from coming in. The Oxley Pest Control, Inc. ant and rodent control professionals based in Bakersfield can help you deal with the immediate infestation, and prevent them from coming back.
Fleas are another common pest our homeowners deal with, especially if they have pets. Fleas have a short reproductive cycle, and breaking that cycle and eradicating them can be quite challenging. Often they are tracked in on pets, like dogs and cats. If you are getting insect bites on your ankles, or if you notice that your pets are scratching more than usual, you may have fleas.
Professional Cockroach Extermination
Cockroaches are endemic in Southern California, and Bakersfield is no exception. They reproduce quickly, and if left unchecked, can soon take over your home. Cockroach infestations can cause food poisoning, and they may exacerbate allergies and respiratory conditions like asthma. The most common cockroach that people have to deal with is the German cockroach. They are tiny and can hide in seemingly impossible places. Because of this, they are tough to eradicate.
Signs of a cockroach infestation include:
Seeing a cockroach during the day
A musty or oily smell in your kitchen
Finding cockroach droppings around your home
Finding roach eggs or egg casings
To prevent cockroaches, you should keep your home free of debris, food waste, and garbage. Always clear dirty dishes, and keep your food sealed and put away. It is also a good idea to clean out under sinks regularly. However, even the cleanest homes may find themselves inundated with roaches. They are known to migrate from adjacent buildings, through plumbing, and can be brought in on boxes, bags, and even in second-hand electronics! If you have cockroaches, don’t be embarrassed. Call Oxley Pest Control, Inc. for quality cockroach extermination services.
