Our goal is to keep your home pest-free and safe for you and your family. Here are some of the top pests we regularly encounter in the Stockton area.

  • Ants – with over 700 species found in the US, it’s hard to know which ones are harmless and which ones cause damage. Carpenter ants are one of the most damaging ants in the country and can cause costly structural damage by destroying wood areas of homes. Other ants to watch out for in the area include fire ants, odorous house ants, thief ants, pavement ants, pharaoh ants, and Argentine ants. But fret not, with our advanced techniques and experience, Valley Pest Solutions can keep these little critters at bay.
  • Cockroaches – the mere mention of the name makes people cringe. Oriental, German, and American cockroaches are known to invade the cleanest of homes and breed rapidly, infesting your home quickly. Not only are they a nuisance, but their crawling around your food, toothbrushes, and kitchen counters can spread dangerous diseases. Not fun. But, we have a solution! Our team of experts knows how to keep these nasties at bay and keep your home clean and healthy for you and your family.
  • Flies – These buzzing annoyances can be a real brat to deal with. From the common house fly to the fruit fly and the drain fly, they are unsanitary and carry dangerous diseases. It’s important to get them out of your home and away from your family. We’ll implement effective strategies to get your home free of flies quickly.
  • Gophers, cute as they are, can be a nightmare to any homeowner who has a beautiful garden or landscaped yard. These little guys can dig up to 150 feet of tunnels a day and eat every plant in sight. Not only that but if bitten by a gopher, humans and their pets may be exposed to dangerous diseases. But, have no fear, our team has the experience and knowledge to protect your garden and home from these little pests.
  • Spiders – Black widow spiders are common in area homes and can be found in dimly lit or cluttered areas such as basements or closets. Their bites contain neurotoxins that can affect the nervous system and require medical treatment, including antivenin injections. Other spiders commonly found in the area include hobo spiders and orb weaver spiders. But, we have your back, and our experts know how to keep these creepy crawlies at bay.

In conclusion, at Valley Pest Solutions, we understand how important it is to have a pest-free and healthy home for you and your family.
