Bats

Prevention:

  • No toxins are approved for use against bats.  Call Aardvark for a free inspection and information on alternative treatment options.
  • Bats are commonly found in attics and outdoor beams.  They often return to the same locations to rest or eat.
  • Nesting bats in an attic space or confined location can create unsanitary conditions that should be dealt with immediately.

Mosquitoes

Prevention:

  • Call Aardvark for an inspection to treat in and around shrubs adjacent to the structure.  Mosquito populations can be very dense in this environment.
  • Stagnant water provides prime breeding conditions for mosquitoes, so reduce these sights wherever possible, such as water that collects in clogged gutters, poorly maintained swimming pools, and rain water that collects in potted plants, trash cans, bird baths, discarded tires, watering containers and children’s toys.
  • Ensure window screens are in good condition and fit tightly to prevent mosquitoes from entering the home.
  • Avoid going outside during the dawn and dusk hours.
  • Wear long sleeves and long pants if you are outside during these hours.
  • Use a mosquito repellent.

Prevention:

  • Call Aardvark if you have problems with rattlesnakes or any other reptile. We offer trapping, live removal and exclusion.
  • San Diego County is home to four different species of rattlesnakes.
  • Rattlesnakes are most active at dusk when hunting for prey.

  • Inside, keep storage boxes off the ground.
  • Scorpions & Centipedes like dark, damp places. Make sure that wet towels are picked up off the floor.
